    The Top 8 pitchers in WAR from 1995 to 2013 are Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling, Roger Clemens, Roy Halladay, Mike Mussina, Greg Maddux and Andy Pettitte. Johnson and Pettitte are the only LHP in this top eight. (During this time period, Pettitte threw 3,316 regular season innings – by far the most of any pitcher from 1995 through 2013. Only Pettitte, Livan Hernandez, Maddux, Jamie Moyer and Tim Wakefield had 3,000+ IP during that span.)

    “Jack Morris was a big game pitcher.” Andy Pettitte made 44 post-season starts and his team won 26 of those games. No one else in baseball history has made that many post-season starts where his team won. Next on the list is Tom Glavine with 18 team wins in 35 post-season starts. Pettitte himself earned the win in 19 of those 26 games.
