Smith was injured and awful in 1906, appearing in 20 Games and having a negative bWAR, but in 1907 he rebounded huge with a 23-10 record with a 2.47 ERA. He had a losing record in 1908 but had a WHIP under 1.000, and a 2.03 ERA. This brings us to 1909, which was a year that had a Cy Young Award existed; he would have won easily. Smith went 25-17 with a 1.80 ERA, 0.953 WHIP, and led the AL in Games Pitched (51), Innings Pitched (365.0) and bWAR (7.1). This was the year that landed him this rank!Sadly, that was it for Smith, as his game fell apart, and he was dealt to Boston the following year. He was also a very good hitting Pitcher with a .208 Batting Average with 32 Doubles and 69 RBIs. He would post a record of 108-80 with a 2.18 ERA with the White Sox.
