this is why i don't understand baseball fans ...

Whitey Ford (aka "The Chairman of the Board") busted his ass for baseball. He pitched changeups, curves, and a blistering fastball. He had the leagues best pickoff move, and, on top of that, he was an excellent fielder. In 11 out of 16 seasons he had an ERA under 3.00 and at his very WORST, his ERA was 3.24. I totally can't understand why my neighbors hate him so much! FORTY FIVE career shutouts, my friends, forty five!
