2015-10-06 19:30:00 (link to chat)I remember when I was young, real men like Lew Burdette and Sandy Koufax would pitch complete game shutouts in WS Game 7 on 2 days rest.
(oldbopper from New Britain, CT)
It was a very different era, and probably everyone on both of these teams would take Burdette deep on two days rest. - JP (AL Wild Card Game Chat)

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff Games"lrgreen (NYC): BP in 2007 said that Seth McClung was 25 saves away from being the All-Time Saves leader for West Virginia natives. Who is the all-time leader in this robust category?"

Lew Burdette had 31 career saves, per BB-Ref, but 16 of those preceded Holtzman's invention of the save rule, and all of them preceded saves becoming an "official" stat in 1970. (Derek Jacques)
