Lefty Grove entered the Majors late
due to Minor League politics.  He was
not immediately successful, however,
going 10-12 with more walks than
strikeouts and an ERA worse than the
league average.

Pete Alexander missed almost all of
the 1918 season serving in World War
I.  Had he pitched that year, he would
have likely led the league in IP each
for five consecutive years and in ERA
for six.
