Matter of Fact

I'm originally from upstate New York, where I developed a passion for the Yankees and Giants, even though NYC was a world away. Each team has brought me the pride of cheering on a world champion (multiple times) and the gut-wrenching heartbreak of what might have been. I've picked up a rooting interest in the New Jersey Devils -- and even got to touch the Cup after they won in 2003. Now, in the Midwest, I still cheer for my boys back in the Northeast.

I needed something to split up the early 1900s "throw every day" types like Young and Mathewson, and the more recent SPs who pitch every five days or so.Here goes, let the debate begin: 10. Jim Palmer9. Greg Maddux. Lots of wins but has been ordinary last few years.8. Tom Seaver7. Waren Spahn 6. Randy Johnson: Still pretty nasty5. Sandy Koufax: A longer career and he'd be up higher.4.
