Who's the next to win 300?

Postby Old_Style » Sun Aug 05, 2007 10:35 pm

The current wins leaders, under 300 career wins, include Randy Johnson, Mike Mussina, David Wells, Jamie Moyer, Curt Schilling, and Pedro Martinez. I don't expect any of them to make 300, but there are a few younger guys that have a shot.

I think the two that have the best shots are Santana and Sabathia.
Zito, Zambrano, Buehrle, and Oswalt may get close. But it's not likely.

Does anyone think any of the current pitchers will win 300, or is Glavine the last of a dying breed for now?

I think Sabathia has the best chance at 300 wins

Lincecum or Gallardo!

In reality, I'd say Sabathia could get there, but it's not gonna be easy. I agree with you that the list of the closest guys won't get there.

To say no one will ever reach 300 wins again is a reach IMO. It will certainly be difficult, take a lot of luck, and require a star pitcher to be healthy for the majority of a 20 year career, but I don't really see any overwhelming reason why pitchers today can't reach that milestone.

I don't buy the pitch count explanation that some of the espn guys have been mentioning.

Pitch counts will kill the 300 Win Pitchers, most pitchers can only go 7 innings and 30 something starts a year. Back in the day guys were throwing CG's every game and getting 40+ starts. Less pitches mean more ND. Someday I think the new 300 will be 250 or 275.

It is crazy to think it will never happen again. I wanted to choke the ESPN guys all game, over-hyping a good event. The next generation of pitchers will be tossing into their 40s, with more pitchers will be pitching longer into their career. I'm sure we'll see a half-dozen more chasing within the next 15 years.
