But that comeback he made last year propelled him to the top of a very prestigious list -- Most Grand Slams Allowed in One Career. Here are the leaders, courtesy of the Sultan: Jackson 10
Nolan Ryan 10
Ned Garver 9
Milt Pappas 9
Jerry Reuss 9
Lee Smith 9
Frank Viola 9

Incidentally, we're awarding Jackson first place on a tiebreaker -- fewest innings pitched. Ryan's 10 slams came in 5,386 innings. Jackson gave up his 10 in 1,188 1/3 innings -- a slight difference (if you're calculating at home) of a mere 4,197 2/3 innings.

Nolan Ryan was god. How on earth could you say that without using teal.

He actually had eight of them, if you count the time Ventura didn't get to land any punches against him.

10 slams against Nolan Ryan. Wasn't Grebeck one of those?

i really hope you meant teal when you said nolan ryan was overrated. a large part of the reason that he might have given up so many grand slams is because he sure did pitch for a long long time.

I don't think so. In 1990, Grebeck hit a 3 run homer off Nolan Ryan (not a grand slam). Ozzie Guillen was the next batter and hit a homer too. Those were the only home runs either of them hit that year. Grebeck didn't hit all that many homeruns in his career, so I'm guessing that might be the one you're thinking of...

I was at that game and have it listed on my profile as 'favorite white sox moment' :smile:

Why? Though i will argue that he was NOT overrated, I will argue that he was not the best by any means.

Hell, I weigh 165 lbs, I'm sure that if I could see a 102 mph fastball, I could probably hit it 350 feet..

His career ERA, win/loss, Ks, IP, all amazing #s. Maybe even underrated?? eh... nah.

Outside of Don Mattingly, ol' Nolan was my favorite non-Sox player. Tough Texans, gotten love em.
