Greatest Pitchers of All TimeGranted, the list is primarily comprised of pitchers who played after World War II even though there are many pitchers who put up staggering numbers prior to that period, but it is hardly a fair comparison to include the earliest pitchers who played in a far less competitive era when many of the best players weren?t even allowed to join the league.

Mathewson was way better than Nolan Ryan. He tops him in everything but strikeouts. One overlooked aspect of his game is his postseason mastery. He pitched single-handedly won a World Series by pitching 3 shutouts in 5 days! His World Series ERA was 0.97 in 101.2 innings! Sorry Ryan, sorry Koufax, you guys shouldn't be close to Big Six.
Way to underrated. He got 373 wins despite playing only 17 years. great friend. once played 13 checker players at the same time blindfolded, won 7 and DREW 6. Here is my list:
1. Christy mathewson(by far)
2. Cy Young(by even more far)
3. Walter Johnson(just barely)
4. Warren Spahn
5. Gregg Maddux

if you look only at MLB numbers not too impressive. but he didnt pitch that long in the MLB. His numbers in the negro leagues...unreal.
Lasorda didn't use this guy properly. He could have lasted years if he wasn't kept in the game as much as he was.
one of the youngest pitchers to throw 100 give the new yankees pitcher some props guys cmon
