The Yankees were a loaded team, and Allie Reynolds was a huge part of that. During the Superchief’s tenure, the Bronx Bombers captured six World Series. His post-season record was 7 and 2, and he was starting as well as relieving as shown by his four saves. This was the same type of way he was used in the regular season as Allie often cam out of the pen as well as start. Basically, the flamethrower did whatever was called upon to get the win for his team.
Because of this, Allie Reynolds can not be solely judged on wins and losses. He was not always placed in positions where he could win games and he would have easily had more victories if he was used primarily as a starter. Regardless, baseball knew what they had as he was a perennial All-Star regardless of how he was used.
