For six years, Ed Walsh was a pitching machine, leading the American League in innings pitched four times, - including his still untouched 464 innings in 1908. "[T]he only man I ever saw," observed one sportswriter, "who could strut standing still." But all that pitching took its toll. In his last five seasons, Walsh won just thirteen games in thirty-three appearances.
