Quite an achievement. Only just over one thousand to go to catch Ryan. :-)

Bu...bu...bu...but what about Cole Hamels?

I guess he's Jesus and Slice Bread's love child.

Pretty amazing the transition he went through from early in his career in terms of his control. Not sure what happened after 1992, but he went from a fairly wild power pitcher with the BB/9 rate well over 5 to becoming a power pitcher with control second only to Pedro (although still a distant 2nd).

Who?
Compared to Randy, Cole Hamels is a little girl.
Randy is the pitcher you can't kill.
No cartilidge in his knees? He laughs at that.
Herniated discs? No problems, he'll just pitch a play off game with them.

Yeah it's like 2 different guys. Maybe Seattle had a change of pitching coach.
152 walks in 1991 and he still had a job? 8-o
