Here is how I read his stats:

I see a guy that pitched for 18 seasons and this is what I see:
  • 3 times - won 20 games
  • 5 times - won more than 15 games
  • 8 times - ERA below 3.50
  • 0 Cy Young Awards
  • 6 time all star
  • 216 wins
Need to add some things for the complete picture though.

*11-2 with a 2.23 ERA and a .968 WHIP (walks and hits per innings pitched) in 19 postseason starts
*4-0 with a 1.37 ERA in five elimination starts
*MVP of the 1993 NLCS with the Phillies
*Co-MVP of the 2001 World Series with the Diamondbacks
*His 4.383 strikeout-to-walk ratio is the second-best all-time

He is a lock for the HOF at some point.
