And the answer is….Rudy MayPosted: May 31, 2014
Left-hander Rudy May is the last Yankee to lead the American League in ERA. May posted a 2.46 ERA in 1980 along with a 15-5 record.
May capped a run of three straight Yankee ERA leaders. Another southpaw, Ron Guidry (aka Louisiana Lightning), led the AL in both 1979 (2.78) and 1978 (1.74).
In the words of immortal Yankee broadcaster Mel Allen – “How about that?”
