Wise lasted two seasons in St. Louis, going a combined 32-28 in 70 games and making the All-Star team in 1973. He enjoyed one of his best seasons as a member of the 1975 Red Sox when he went 19-12 and helped the Sox reach the World Series. Lefty's first season in Philly marks perhaps one of the best single-season pitching performances in the game's history. Pitching for a horrendous 1972 Phillies squad, Carlton went 27-10 with a 1.97 ERA and 310 strikeouts in 346 1/3 innings. His 27 wins represented almost half of the team's 59 wins for the entire season.
