Even casual fans know that Cy Young and Nolan Ryan hold the career records for wins and strikeouts, but considerably fewer know the guy with the lowest career ERA. The career low ERA depends on which criteria you choose, but if you choose 1,000 or more innings pitched, this guy's 1.82 is the all-time record. A spitballer, he five times posted over 350 innings pitched. In 1906, he won two games in the World Series to help vanquish the Cubs, and in 1908, he became MLB's last 40-game winner. Identify this workhorse who pitched from 1904-1917, but who required the veterans committee to vote him in to Cooperstown because of reasons.
