"only better pitcher"
Only? Ahem, Koufax, Marichal, and Drysdale.

All great pitchers, but I wouldn't necessarily call them better than Bunning with the possible exception of Koufax. The best years of Sandy's career was certainly far better than the best years of Bunning's career, but over a much shorter time frame.
Drysdale was very good, certainly in the same class, but he played for contenders most of his career. Bunning didn't.
Juan Marichal, as great a pitcher as he was, will always be tainted for attacking John Roseboro with a baseball bat. Plus, his team was seldom out of contention.
