You know what the Hall of Fame doesn't need? Another Yankee! What if he had a 0.651 career winning percentage? Still don't care. Finished in the top 5 for the Cy Young four times, including a win? Still don't care. The guy had a season where he went 25-3 with a 1.74 ERA. One season don't make a career. He has two cool nicknames "Louisiana Lightning" and "Gator". Nicknames don't get you to the Hall. He's 3-1 with a 1.69 ERA in three World Series, and has two rings? Not good enough!
Name this pitcher who threw from 1975-88, anchoring the great Yankees teams of the late 70s and the mediocre teams of the 1980s.
