Check out his 1968 stats some time.  The man was throwin' extra-small BB's.

(Paraphrase)  The luckiest pitcher ever.  He only pitched on days when the other team wasn't hitting.

Very impressive.  Especially the number of wild pitches.

He was also a fast worker proclaiming “Win or lose, 1:59 or less...”  Imagine that happening today!
