The good news? I got 29.
The bad news? Two I got wrong were two that people here are saying "nobody better have gotten this question wrong..."

23. A few where I didn't go with my immediate choice. But not many. So a legit under 50%.

28/41. Can’t believe I chose Gagne for the WHIP question.
I did the same thing and now I’m extra annoyed because Gagne’s WH/IP in ‘03 was better than Pedro’s in ‘00. Was there some “starter” qualification in the question that I missed?

Rate records have to be innings/plate appearances qualifiers. Koji was even better than that in 2013.

I'd imagine quite a few relievers have had a lower WHIP but they didn't pitch enough innings to qualify. I didn't think there were really (m)any trick questions in the quiz, just a few trick answers.

23 out of 41. My 2nd guess was right on at least half of the misses.
