20 Loss-Cy Young

After witnessing firsthand Zito's 7th loss on this young season in Pittsburgh, I had a thought: "How many pitchers in baseball history have had both a Cy Young season AND a 20 loss season in their careers?"

I did a little research and came up with three:

Denny McClain http://www.baseball-reference.com/m/mclaide01.shtml

Steve Carlton http://www.baseball-reference.com/c/carltst01.shtml

Randy Jones http://www.baseball-reference.com/j/jonesra01.shtml


What's fascinating about this list is that all of these pitchers played in the 1970's

In other words, if Zito loses 20 games this year, he will have been the first pitcher to have both a Cy Young award and a 20- loss season since 1976.
