Ned Garver, the only pitcher... American League history to win at least 20 games in a season for a team that lost at least 100 times, died at age 91.

Garver (whom I had never of, and I used to know a lot about baseball) has one of those New York Times obits that really needs to be read in its entirety; it's packed with interesting tidbits. For example:

“The crowd didn’t dare boo us,” Garver once said of his nearly five seasons with the lowly Browns before sparse crowds at Sportsman’s Park, which they shared with the popular Cardinals. “The players had them outnumbered.”
