    Not a big Maddux fan...... Hate both the Cubs and Atlanta. But, I can give props to Maddux for his 300th. He's been one hell of a SP over the course of his career. Especially for a guy without overpowering stuff. His command is outstanding. He's a hell of a fielder for his position as well... Even his bat wasn't terrible.

    No one will get 300 for a long time, now that Maddux is there. RJ can't throw 60 more wins, in my opinion. Even at 20 a year that's three years... he'll be, what? 44? I guess that's not unheard of, but winning 20 isn't automatic... and staying with the Diamondbacks isn't a receipe for success.

    Pedro? I suppose this is possible within the next decade or so, but I think he's around 190 or so, and he's no spring chicken. Maybe he should take a lesson from Maddux and place his pitches since he's lost his 98mph fastball. (which, by the way, I think he has in fact begun to do)

    I can't see Pedro making it...arm trouble will be his downfall

    Pedro is at 177 wins. I can't see him making it to 300. Like grad said he will probably have arm problems. If that doesn't happen I think he will just run out of gas.
     
  6. Congrats to Maddux!

    Great Pitcher, nothing bad can be said about Maddux. Tom Glavine has 259 Wins. He is the next one in line but will he do it with the METS?
