Of course, after 1960 means after expansion, and it stands to reason that more teams means more pitchers which means more mid-rotation inning eaters. I suppose 5-man rotation also works in favor of getting on the list, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised that the list is so heavily weighted toward the 1960s and beyond. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.

He got hurt, though, and lost his fastball and had to reinvent himself as a junkball pitcher who nobody could really get too excited about. Still, its impressive that he could put together so many middle-of-the-rotation, innings-eating seasons *after* losing his best pitch due to injury.

But he was quite reliable and productive in his day, if not stellar on a routine basis.

Way to go with the table formatting, Steve!
