Yeah, I was joking around. Little did I know that Harkey actually pitched well in his rookie year and got some votes for ROY.

Man am I glad to hear you say that. When I read your post, I thought you were joking and then all the following posts made it seem like he was a serious candidate. Who knew, right!

My whole life I've considered Harkey the standard for Cubs pitcher disappointments. I don't remember him pitching that well in his first couple of seasons, all I remember is how terrible he was the rest of his career, and how everyone always said how great he could be, and I could never understand why. I'm glad I got to look back on it, I feel like a giant hole has been filled.
