Good day everyone!
On the blog today, we have my pick, and I'm sure most everyone else in this matter, for the American League right-handed pitcher of the 1970s, Jim Palmer, Baltimore Orioles Hall of Famer:

Honestly, there is no way it could be anyone else, as the man was just incredible not only in the 1970s, but over his stellar career.
Palmer’s road to Cooperstown was a bit rocky at first, with a couple of jumps and starts because of injuries between 1964 and 1968.
As a matter of fact we’d probably be looking at a 300-game winner if not for over a season of missed time between 1967 and 1968.
All the man did was top 20-wins in eight of the next ten seasons of the 1970s, winning three Cy Young Awards, the first American League pitcher to do so, helping the Orioles to a championship in 1970, and eventually finishing with a career 268-152 record along with a brilliant 2.86 ERA and 53 shutouts before he was done in 1984.
Over that magical decade of the 1970s, he was an All-Star six times, got MVP support seven seasons, and took home four Gold Gloves.
Truly one of the All-Time greats of the game!
