    Strike outs are meaningless and a no hitter doesn't count any more than any shutout. Ryan was more eratic than those other top pitchers i mentioned and as i proved he was not the victim of bad teams. 15 of the 27 teams he played on won more games than they lost. He was on more winners than losers!

    He is not even in the top 5 of the post 1969 era so how is it arguable that he be in the top 5 of all time. It's insane!

    It's funny how ryan is great at those things that matter least. Not ERA, not whip, not k-BB ratio, not wins/starts, not wins/games.

    Ryan is at the bottom of almost every hall pitcher in whip and winning percentage. Even guys like don sutton and kevin brown have lower whips.

    Babe ruth has more post season wins than ryan but ryan is top 5?

    Nolan is a HOF and its nothing to do with numbers. Its how much the other batters feared him, his teammates had confidence in him, and fans in general adored him.

    Emmtt smith was the most valuable player on that team and the running game made everyhing else work. If troy aikman was on the chicago bears his whole career he's not in the hall, irvin either...

    Here are Emmitt's stats without Aikman.

    1,021 yds, 3td
    975, 5td
    258, 2td
    937, 9 td

    If anything, Emmitt proved he's nothing without Aikman. He could not carry a team by himself, despite his insistance that he could.
