Although Blyleven had double-digit losses in each of the next six seasons, he had an ERA under 3.00 and struck out 200 or more batters each year over that same span. His best season was in '73, when he was an All-Star and had a career best in wins (20), ERA (2.52) strikeouts (258), and a league-high in shutouts (9). In June 1976, Blyleven was traded to the Rangers.
