73. Orel Hershiser
What a year 1988 was for Orel Hershiser. He didn’t just win the Cy Young that year, getting better to the point of being unstoppable as the season wound down. He broke Don Drysdale’s consecutive scoreless innings record to end the regular season than went on to win three games in the post season (including one save) and propelled the Dodgers to a World Series win and won the World Series MVP in the process. What a year!
