This is certainly great! It should be the highest ever win total facing each other, cuz c’mon, really, Cy Young. 500 wins. That’s back in the day when pitchers would pitch both ends of a doubleheader.

Nice 87 Donruss cards there.

I like the Maddux moustache.

Actually, I think these two faced each other in the past year or so.

Walt, you are probably right, seeing that they are both in the same division, the chances of them facing each other before is very likely. But back then they didn’t have as many wins as they have now.

Indeed…the date was April 29, 2005, with the Cubs (Maddux) winning 3-2. Both pitchers had over 300 wins at the time, as well.

I heard that on the radio this morning as well. Gotta love ESPN 1000.

I would love to see what would happen if you were able to combine these two into 1 single pitcher. Clemens’ power and conditioning along with Maddux’s placement and intelligence. Could be the perfect pitcher.

I’d be happy if Clemens retired and never played again though. Until then, I think every pitcher in MLB should bean him every time he comes to the plate to bat.

Can you imagine getting beaned in five consecutive at bats? I wonder what the record is. It’s probably three times in a row.
