    As of today, Randy Johnson is 14 shy, and if he wins today, make it 13, and Mike Mussina has a outside shot with 45 away. After that, not much for the next 12-15 years or so for the 300-win mark, but for the 350-win mark, not much for the rest 30-40 years IMO.

    Remember, when Spahn won his 300th game in 1961, it was the first time since Lefty Grove did it in 1941. I doubt there will be twenty years between Glavine and the next guy to win 300.

    WTG Maddux! Awesome accomplishment!
    I read a 1991 pre-All Star game interview in which Rickey Henderson said of the NL's starting pitcher, "Who is Tom Glavine?" Funny stuff!

    the supposition by many is that maddux did not use.
    i would not wager on that.
    You would be leaving easy money on the table. The only thing Greg Maddux ever injected into himself was Twinkees®

    Hats off to Maddux. He pitched as great a game as Biggio had hitting against the Rockies when he got hit #3000 and #3001 and #3002 and #3003

    Depends on who renames it. Give the public the vote and it'll be the Nolan Ryan Award.

    Unless he's in the AL.

    I don't know about all of the Maddux > Clemens talk. I've always been a bigger Maddux fan than I was of Clemens but I pretty much recognize that Clemens is better than Maddux. Not even sure what the heck a "five tool pitcher" is, heh. Anyway, a great accomplishment indeed.

    Shocking that he actually made an error in this game, very un-Maddux.

    What an effort though.
