Perry didn't strike out a ton of guys (5.9 K/9), but didn't walk many guys, either (2.3 BB/9). He just knew how to keep hitters off balance and how to pitch complete games (303 of his 690 career starts were complete games.) He pitched over 300 innings in a season six times in his career. His durability and consistency were extraordinary and he continued to be an effective pitcher even after turning 40. He will be best remembered as a Giant (37 WAR), but he was actually even better as an Indian (29 WAR in half of the innings pitched).
Thanks for an amazing career, Gaylord Perry.
