<b>Comment:</b> A close call, thanks to the Juan Pizarro backers. Their guy threw 95-96 and was 14-7, 12-14, 16-8 and 19-9 before hurting his arm. Alex turned in years like 18-9, 11-7 (strike season), 12-8 and 16-10 (in '96, with 200 K's in 258 innings) before leaving via free agency. The tiebreaker: Fernandez pitched for a division champ ('93); Pizarro missed the '64 pennant by one game.
