Pedro Martinez 1999 and Pedro Martinez 2000 are two examples of the best pitching season of all time. Bob Gibson 1968 is commonly brought up, but in this episode of Baseball Bits, a Foolish Baseball production, I suggest that perhaps Pedro Martinez Red Sox star pitched the MLB best season ever.
In this video, we talk about his arsenal of pitches. That Pedro Martinez changeup is one of the best pitches you'll ever see. We talk about some of his noteworthy games, such as various Pedro Martinez vs Yankees outings. This video also includes a breakdown of a Pedro Martinez All Star Game outing in Fenway, and Pedro Martinez Game 5 1999 ALDS heroics.
Some stats included in this video include ERA+, WHIP, and FIP. This video includes explanations of all three. Baseball certainly is a numbers game, so knowing how they work is key to understanding my argument.
Finally, we discuss an always tricky topic. The best pitcher in baseball history. I won't try to bore you with some Pedro Martinez Cy Young comps, though. At the end of the day, it's just about appreciating what a great pitcher did...twice.
