The best pitchers have an affect on few games. Let's say he's a 20 game winner and pitched well in 10 more but got a no decision, and was personally responsible for losing 10 more, then he has positively affected the outcome of only 30 games out of 162. How could that guy possibly be the most valuable player on a team that he had no affect on the outcome of 132 of their games?

By the way, hate to be a stickler for detail, but you have your above hypothetical pitcher making 40 starts. The last non knuckleball pitcher in either league to make 40 starts in a single season was the late Mike Flanagan in 1978.

You're right. If he was a 20 game winner his loses and no decisions would be much lower.
