Willie Aikens played in only one WS.  It seems absurd to include him.

Mariano Rivera pitched in 7 WS but only 36 innings.  Plus, he blew the
lead and game in game 7 2001, the biggest blown save in MLB history.

Rollie Fingers: 3 WS, 33 innings.

Mike Stanton: 6 WS, 23 innings.

Bob Gibson: 3 WS, 81 innings.

Christy Mathewson: 4 WS, 101 innings.  11 starts, 10 CG.

What the heck?

Talk about apples and oranges.
