Pittsburgh Pirates by BruceM

Question 6

Which pitcher finished second in the 1972 NL Cy Young voting, but put up a 9.85 ERA in 88.2 innings a season later? He issued 84 walks (and 12 hit batsmen) against 27 strikeouts, and a pitcher's abrupt loss of control is figuratively known as his namesake disease.

Like the men immediately before and after him on this quiz, he is part of the PIrates' broadcast team.
