Bo belinsky dating europ georgia dating site
In a fantastic Sports Illustrated archived article, they refer to Bo's frequent nights out on the strip dating Hollywood starlets.
However, his last season with the Angels, 1964, was a fairly good one.
That year, he posted his best K/BB-rate (1.86, which still isn't very good) and a 2.86 ERA to go along with his 3.25 FIP, in 22 starts (135.1 IP).
At that point in his career, Belinsky had seven starts with a 6-1 record, 48.1 IP, 41 K's, 29 BB's, 6 HBP's, and a 2.42 ERA.
Belinsky saw instant success at the Major League level; which by all accounts got to his head, but even if it had not, the numbers he posted look unsustainable.
Belinsky had a Hollywood personality, and what better place to show it off than Hollywood itself?
Belinsky began his MLB career with three victories, including a complete game.
These stats cover only 18 starts; which is just over half of a full major league season, so it's tough to read too much into them.
It's clear that when Bo was on his game, he got serious benefits from suppressing balls-in-play and home runs.
But it's tough to tell if he would have even been any good before the whole Hollywood issue, because for one, he had a Hollywood image before his MLB debut, and his no-hit fame came after his fourth major league start, so his pre-Hollywood sample size is about as minimal of one as you can find.
Even when Belinsky was at his best: his first seven starts of 1962 (2.42 ERA) and his last 11 starts as an Angel (2.36 ERA), his peripheral statistics during those starts don't completely paint the picture of a great starter.
Belinsky had a flair for dramatic; which gave him the ability to, at times, live up to his enormous Hollywood ego.
