    His nicknames are 'Louisiana Lightning' and 'Gator.'
    He has a thick cajun accent.
    He is a poor speaker and sounds uneducated.
    All three of his 1978 loses came to AL East teams that began with a B (Baltimore, Blue Jays and Brewers) and to pitchers named Mike (Caldwell, Flanagan and Willis).
    He was under whelmed and confused when the Yankees retired his uniform number (August 23, 2003).
    He was sickly thin, almost 6 feet tall and weighing just over 150 lbs.
    He played centerfield in the make up portion of the infamous George Brett pine tar game (August 18, 1983).
    He never lost a post season game and won four.
    His 25-3 record in 1978 allowed the Yankees to make up a 14 game deficit to win the AL East.
    His 1978 season is considered the best pitching season by a Yankee and arguably in baseball.
    His 25th win of that season was a single game playoff a Fenway Park to clnch the AL East.
    He is credited with trigging the Yankee fan tradition of standing and clapping urging a third strike for the strike out.
    The only AL East team to begin with a B that did not beat him in 1978 was Boston, who pitched a Mike (Torrez) in the 1978 playoff game.
    He struck out three batters in an inning on the minimum nine pitches (August 7, 1984).
