Major League Baseball's Top 10 Pitchers of All Time

10) Lefty Grove

Started his career with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1925 and was inducted into the MLB HOF in 1947. He was a 2x World Champion and appeared in 6 All Star Games. He also was the the 1931 AL MVP. He would have had a Cy Young award to if the award was in play during his years as a pro. He had a a 68% Win Percentage in his career and a 3.06 ERA.

9) Sandy Koufax

Started his career on the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1955 and was inducted into the MLB HOF in 1972. He was a 4 time world champion and 2 time MVP of the World Series. He also appeared in 7 All Star Games and was a three time Cy Young winner. He also had a career 2.76 ERA and 40 SHO in just 12 years. I like Koufax on the 10 spot of this list

8) Warren Spahn

Started his career on the Boston Braves in 1942 and was inducted into the MLB HOF in 1973 with 83% of the votes. He was a one time world champion and was a 4x NL Pitcher of the Year along with 1 Cy Young. He also went to the All Star Game 17x in his 21 year baseball career. He was 363-245 in his career and had 3.09 ERA along with 2500+ K's.

7) Tom Seaver

Started his career on the New York Mets in 1967 and was inducted into the MLB HOF in 1992 with 99% of the votes, the highest amount ever. He was a one time world champion and a 3x Cy Young winner. He went to 12 All Star Games and 7 in a row from '67-'73. He had a 311-205 Record and a 2.86 ERA. He also had 3650 K's in his career which is 6th all time

6) Greg Maddux

Started his career on the Chicago Cubs in 1986 and will surely be inducted into the MLB HOF with his outstanding career. He was a one time world champion and a 4x Cy Young winner that were in consecutive years. He gained 18 Gold Gloves along with 8x All Star appearances in his 22 year career. He was 355-227 in his career with a 3.16 ERA and 10th All time in K's with 3371 total.

Good choices. I'm not convinced Maddux makes the top 10, but his numbers are very impressive.

I'd go with Bob Feller over Greg Maddux.

Feller is a good pick but I still think that Maddux in horribly underrated. Definitely should be in the top 10 at least
