Hector Arroyo (S32) VS. Sean Donovan (S7)

     As Hector Arroyo (Las Vegas High Rollers) just finished Season 32 with an incredible 20-0 record (interesting that Arroyo got the loss in the S32 All-Star game, but started the game at 41%), I was compelled to look at other seasons to find a pitcher who dominated a season as Arroyo has.
     I journeyed back to season 7 and the Louisville Wild Turkeys to find Sean Donovan.
     There were a few pitchers I looked at through the Mathewson history:

  • Giomar Diaz (S12) Charlotte Wolfpack
    • 21-1 W/L record, other stats were good, but not great
  • Del Alvarez (S14) Buffalo Blizzard
    • 61 saves, 1.25 ERA
  • Wolf Miller (S17) Los Angeles Canyoneros
    • 25 Wins (single season record)
  • Harry Regan (S21) Colorado Crush
    • 17-1 W/L record, several other stats were near record stats
     Back to Arroyo & Donovan, Donovan holds 5 single season pitching records from S7, while Arroyo will check in (this season) with the first perfect winning percentage in Mathewson history surpassing the aforementioned Giomar Diaz to take that record.
     Arroyo pitches for a current playoff team with a 98-64 record. Arroyo has won his first playoff start this season (team still alive in playoffs at this writing), with 9 K's in 7 IP.
     Donovan pitched S7 for a playoff team with a 86-76 record, losing in the 2nd round of the playoffs. In 2 playoff starts, was 1-0, 2.08 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, 16-1 K/BB ratio.
     NOTE: S7's average run total per team is a half run more per game than in S32.
     For their Careers, both great pitchers, Donovan finished at 194-79, 3.22 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 2215 K's in 2334 IP.
     Arroyo at age of 32 with possibly 6 more good seasons has the chance to go after the career win record, currently Arroyo is at 232-81, 2.69 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 2931 K's in 2703 IP. I am guessing Arroyo will end up at the top of many career pitching categories by the time he retires.
     Below are the side by side stats for each pitcher to compare yourself. Comment with your thoughts or suggestion on a pitcher who you feel needs to be mentioned in this conversation.
