Can you say Greg Maddux? How long has he been doing it?

I'm sorry but Greg Maddux is an exception. I know a lot of people like to draw comparisons with him but:
a) Maddux was throwing in the low 90s, topping out a 94-95 in his prime
b) He had more movement on his fastball than anyone not named Mariano Rivera
c) He would paint the corners like you wouldn't believe. Even the umps calling the game would call some balls a strike
