Greg Maddux - Greg Maddux
i absolutely love baseball. my favorite pitcher is greg maddux who is the first pitcher to win four straight cy young awards. he does not have an oh-my-god fastball but he has an excellent change up and a knack for knowing what the batter is expecting on the next pitch. his ability to think one step ahead of the batter is the main reason why he was a force during the 1990s. he is a sure first ballot hall of famer. Wins-losses 333-203 ERA 3.07 Strikeouts 3169 * Ranks tenth all time in number of wins, second among active pitchers, and third among pitchers who played their entire careers in the live-ball era (333 wins) * Twelfth all time in number of career strikeouts, third among active pitchers (3169 SO's) * 8-time All-Star (1988, 1992, 1994-1998, 2000) * Lowest ERA single season record among active pitchers at 1.56 ERA (1994) * Led National League in ERA four times (1993-95, 1998) * Led National League in wins three times (1992, 1994-95) * Led National League in shutouts 5 times (1994-95, 1998, 2000-01) * Third among active pitchers in shutouts (35) * Finished 3rd in National League Most Valuable Player voting (1995) * Finished 5th in National League Most Valuable Player voting (1994) * Tied for first among Rawlings Gold Glove Awards with 16 (1990-2002, 2004-2006) * Holds record for most consecutive seasons with 15 wins or more, with 17 (1988-2004) * Second in Innings Pitched among all active pitchers * In 1999, he ranked Number 39 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, the highest-ranking pitcher then active, and was nominated as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. However, when TSN updated their list in 2005, Maddux fell to number 51 despite his having since reached the 300-win and 3,000-strikeout plateaus. * In 2006, Maddux broke Warren Spahn's record (17) of seasons among the league's top 10 pitchers in games won. Maddux has now finished 18 seasons among the top 10 in the league in wins. * Holds record for times leading the league in games started (7 times).
