I understand why Ryan is not in contention.

But, he is the most like Howe in that he was still pitching in his 40's and still throwing the ball past major league hitter. An incredible feat of agelessness.

The most dominant pitchers I've seen were Sany Koufax, Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson and Nolan Ryan. The latter 2 actually scaring hitters.
