In his next start, he went 2 innings and gave up 2 runs.

That's something that should be changed.

That might be why he wasn't chosen -- he wouldn't have been available to pitch.

The record is an all-time record for consecutive starts to open a season allowing 1 ER or less. Mike Norris shares it from his 1980 season. Unknown who else has 8 such starts before 1956. I'm a bit surprised Norris could have such a streak to start the season, finish second in the Cy Young voting, yet not be an all-star.

He had a subpar career; and even a subpar 1969! After his great start, he posted a 6.46 ERA the rest of the way. In fact, in 3 of his first 11 starts of the year, he failed to log 5 IP and qualify for the win.
