While we all could benefit from having our failures removed, few would benefit from having a mere 16 games removed. YIKES!

That's 1 no-hitter every 4 years (or 1 every 120 starts)

Also three of the 13 triples he has allowed.

If you took these 16 games out of Mariano's record, his career WHIP would be 0.9676, which would place him microscopically ahead of Addie Joss (0.9678) for lowest career WHIP.

Not that we all couldn't benefit from having all our failures removed from the record . . . but it shows in yet another way just how good Rivera has been.
