As a member of the Royals, Saberhagen had a decent record of 110 and 78 with 1,093 Strikeouts but it was a pair of seasons where he was the best in the business where he will always be remembered.
The first was 1985, where at the age of 21 he would win the Cy Young Award and hurl the Royals into a World Series Championship where he was named the MVP with a 0.50 ERA in two Complete Games. His second was in 1989, where he would again win the Cy Young with a 23 and 6 Record while leading the American League in ERA, WHIP, FIP and SO/BB.
As of this writing we are confident in ranking Saberhagen as the greatest Pitcher in Royals history. Kansas City inducted Saberhagen into their Hall of Fame in 2005.
