    “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.

      Pettitte is a borderline case. I think if he hadn’t admitted to HGH use, he’d have gotten in at some point, thanks to his post-season record.

      By way of comparison, in terms of peak value, despite Andy being the runner up in 1996, Mike Mussina had slightly more MVP “shares” than Andy, and 5 All-Star selections to Andy’s 3.

      In terms of career value, Mussina had 83 career bWAR, Andy had 61.
