1968 was the year of the pitcher. Rookie of the Year, Stan Bahnsen posted a career best 2.05 ERA which was only enough to place him behind 5 other pitchers in the American League alone and put him tied for 8th place overall. Bahnsen would pitch for the Yankees through the 1971 season. After the season he was traded to the White Sox. In 1972 Bahnsen would have 21 wins in 41 starts. The following year he would start 42 games and lead the league in losses with 21. He flirted with a no hitter that season going 2 outs into the 9th before giving up a single to Walt "No Neck" Williams. "No Neck" was a teammate of Bahnsen's the previous season on the White Sox.
