Okay…it’s time for the Major League Pitching loss leaders…alphabetical leaders, that is. Again, we’re trying to come up with the major league pitcher who has the most losses among players whose surname starts with each letter of the alphabet.
Now think about it. It takes a special pitcher to accumulate high loss totals. The pitcher has to be great enough, or just good enough, to pitch a lot of years, or maybe the pitcher is the best pitcher on a bad team. They may or may not have won more games than they lost….and some may have been excluded from the Hall of Fame because they couldn’t win pitching for a bad team.
Of the 25 letters available (no X players ever), three are from before 1900, which surprised me….I expected several more. If you guess the modern winner that counts, too.
