JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART V

Happy Fourth of July to you all...
It's time for another round of 1970's baseball trivia. See if you can get them all before I post the answers tomorrow...
1. Who was the only M.V.P. in the decade that was an overall #1 draft pick?

2. From 1972 thru 1979 Nolan Ryan lead the A.L. In strikeouts in all but one season. Who lead the league in K's that one season?

3. What pitcher had an astounding 44 decisions out of his 49 game appearances, leading to a 24-20 record?

4. Surprisingly, during the "Big Red Machine's" two-year domination of baseball in 1975/76, their pitcher with the most combined wins for both years tallied only 30 victories. Who was he?

5. Three times in the decade, an American League slugger lead the circuit in homers with 32, the lowest output between 1970-79. Who were the three players?

***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW:

1. Jeff Burroughs: 1969 #1 Pick; 1974 A.L. M.V.P.

2. Frank Tanana, 1975

3. Wilbur Wood, 1973.
