Greg Maddux

Gregory Alan Maddux (born April 14, 1966, in San Angelo, Texas, USA) is a pitcher for the San Diego Padres. He is one of only nine pitchers in Major League history to achieve 300 career wins and 3000 strikeouts. He won more games during the 1990s than any other pitcher.
Winning 300 games is a feat that is much more difficult to achieve now compared to the past due to the increased use of relief pitching, which has reduced the number of decisions for starting pitchers. In addition, Maddux has pitched his entire career in the era of the 5-man rotation, in which starters are given fewer starts per season. For that reason, some baseball historians have said he may be the last pitcher to achieve 300 career wins for decades, if not ever, although the recent return to form by his former Atlanta Braves teammate Tom Glavine has once again made Glavine a strong candidate for 300 wins. On July 26, 2005, Maddux joined an even more exclusive club when he recorded his 3,000th strikeout, a feat generally accomplished by power pitchers, not a finesse pitcher like Maddux. Although this feat has been accomplished by several other pitchers, Maddux is one of just three who have done so while allowing fewer than 1,000 walks. The two other pitchers who allowed so few walks with as many strikeouts are Fergie Jenkins and Curt Schilling. Maddux has won 20 games only twice, in 1992 and 1993 (although interrupted seasons in 1994 and 1995, when Maddux won 16 and 19 games respectively, likely cost him more). Maddux has won 19 games five times, and 18 games twice.
