Zach Britton is reminiscent of what winning-era Orioles Pitcher?



That sinker and ground ball ratio harkens back to the days of Scotty Erickson...

"In his minor league career Britton has induced nearly 3 times as many ground outs as fly ball outs (2.94 GO/AO)"  --http://weaverstantrum.blogspot.com/2011/03/x-factor-zach-britton.html

Scotty's #'s in his first four years with the O's: 2.51, 2.50, 2.41, 2.54. From Wikipedia: "Scott Erickson was a groundball pitcher, leading the league five times in most double plays, and is in the Top 5 alltime in groundball to flyout ratio."--There's no link for this list on the wikipedia page and if anyone has seen, I'd be curious to look at it.
