Glavine Aims for Win Number 300

By  | 

While you might have a hard time cheering for Barry Bonds to break the all-time homerun mark, it is a bit easier rooting for Tom Glavine on the hill tonight.

Glavine brings his 299 career wins, most of them coming from his days with the Braves, into Milwaukee as he looks to become the first major leaguer to win his 300th game since former teammate Greg Maddux did so 3 years ago. He's looking to become the 11th Major Leaguer to reach the mark since 1960.

Glavine's march for history begs the question; Will there be many more 300-game winners? I believe the answer is no.

Randy Johnson is just 16 away, but his career might be over thanks to injury. Of the top 5 on the active list for wins, everyone other than Mike Mussina on the list is at least 42, with their careers winding down. Mussina is 38, but he has been ineffective in recent years.
