I did have a true knuckleballer, and he won multiple Cy Young Awards, thank you.
The Big three can certainly make up for 45-65 splits, I have done it. Of course you need to consider all things, catcher, ballpark, defense, offense. Those that make knee jerk assumptions based on ratings are bound to continue to hover around the .500 mark and never win a WS like teccywrg. Who knows, he might not be astute enough to put a great team together, or he may just be having fun and not care much about winning it all. No biggie.
Having been in over a dozen World Series in 40 completed seasons tends to speak for itself if you are paying attention.
