    True, it just turned out that Leo score 18pts higher in my rating system. I'm not saying Harmon shouldn't have won MVP that year, or that he was not one the best that ever played for the Twins, just that he got hurt in the small ball stats.

    I was astounded by his stats in 1966 25-13 mid 2's ERA and at the time a team record 305 IP. Was wondering why he didn't win the CY Young that year so looked into it. Yeah in 1966 there was only one Cy given out and it went to Sandy Koufax, who got all 20 first place votes.
