After appearing in just 18 games during brief stints with the Oakland Athletics in 1969 and 1970, Blue suddenly became the ace of the team's pitching staff in 1971, compiling a 24-8 record and leading the AL with 8 shutouts and a 1.82 ERA. He won the CY Young Award and was named the league's most valuable player for that performance. He had a 209-161 record in 17 seasons, with 37 shutouts and a 3.28 ERA. Blue struck out 2,175 hitters and walked 1,185 in 3,343 innings.
