Scott, Sain, Stieb, Donovan, and Newcombe also lost their series. One of the two pitchers from 1906 on this list was on the team that lost the Series.

So what does that mean for this year's Rays?

(I admit to actually cheering when Longoria hit that homer to beat my team). On the other hand, Detroit and Texas are pretty good too, so there's no easy opponents this year. (I miss the Twins)

Has that ever happened? He came damn close.

A pitcher could be very experienced but just hadn't made the postseason before.

Where Moore does have superlatives is fewest career starts and IP. He only had 3G, 1GS, 9.1 IP coming into today.
