If you’re thinking nothing good came out of Mike Kickham’s year… you’re right, pretty much. However, he became the second player in MLB history to have > 2 starts, > 3 games finished, and a K/9 over 5.5 while posting a 10+ ERA. Who can guess the other?
That’s right. Roy Halladay in 2000. Since then he’s gone 190-91 with a 3.17 ERA and 7 top-5 Cy Young finishes. I think you can safely expect that from Kickham as well !

He’s probably the only player to pitch 5 straight seasons of sub-3-ERA ball after the age of 36 (minimum 50 games per season). You heard it here first!
