What about Torres? I know he had a lot of games pitched during his time, is he over 500 innings?


Torres pitched only 483 innings as a Buc, but his numbers would come up a little short on the list anyway...6.1 per 9.

#2 #4, and #8 surprised me a little, at least initially.


That statement is screaming Kip Wells...

Kip Wells, final answer...



YEP, Wells comes in at # 8 6.52 Ks per 9....there's a couple even MORE surprising!

OK - Just because I always liked the name, Cilio Guante!


Guante would be there at #3 on the list, with 7.43 per 9, but only pitched 355 innings.

Didn't Stan Belinda pitch set-up for a couple years before becoming a closer? Did he have enough innings?

Jose DeLeon?



Good guess..DeLeon would be # 1 on the list with 8.10 Ks per 9 innings as a Buc...but threw only 479 innings. Incidentatlly, DeLeon had two of the top 8 single season totals 9.83 in '83, and 8.24 in '85. He did end up a 7.6 per 9 for his career.

Speaking of Jose DeLeon, for you younger guys, frustrated by Oliver Perez or Ian Snell, DeLeon came up in '83 and flirted with no hitters like 6 times in 19 games...ended up 7-3 in 15 games with 2.83 ERA and 118 strikeouts in 108 innings. He followed that up with 7-13 and 2-19 seasons despite having GREAT STUFF, and sometimes was unhittable. After starting 1986 with a 1-3 record and an 8+ ERA in 9 starts he was traded for Bobby Bonilla. He then went to the Cardinals and won 40 games in 3 years, going 16-12 with 3.05 ERA in '89 and leading the league in strikeouts. He then lost 19 again the next year!

It surprised me to learn that Paul Wagner had 6.96 Ks per 9 as a Buc, good for # 4 on the list!

Gott had good numbers 7.91 per 9, but had only 140 innings as a Buc.

Guisti was at 5.58.

Belinda's 7.72 per 9 would put him at #2 on the list...but he only had 260 innings.

I was at one of thost games where DeLeon flirted with a no hitter; against the Padres. I believe he pitched 6+ innings of no hit ball. Pretty sure that Steve Garvey broke it up. Strangely, we attended that game at TRS 2-3 days after watching Dickie Thon ruin Charlie Hudson's no-hit bid in the eighth inning at Veteran's Stadium in Philadelphia.

McWilliams did have 199 Ks in 1983.

That is why I guessed him ... did not know his K rates was so low during his other seasons with the Bucs.

No, No, No, and No!

Cooper's rate was only 3.2.

Reuss 4.7 in career, about same with Bucs.

Rooker 4.9 in career, about same with Bucs.

Sewell just 2.7

His average is pretty good 6.1...but did not have enough innings with Bucs.

We are still missing #2, #6, and #7.

At least one of them had a pretty successful career, and shouldnt be a surprise!

Would Jason Schmidt be number 7? Looking through his stats, there are some ratios in the upper 6's.

We already established Benson and now added Schmidt.

Two more. One should be pretty obvious.
