I was given a five-minute quiz on Sunday and I failed miserably…
I was to guess the winningest pitchers of all time by letter. That is, which pitcher whose last name began with “A” won the most games, which pitcher whose last name began with “B” won the most games…all the way through Z.
I was right on seven letters of the 26….in five minutes…remember…don’t look anything up right away.
As a hint…I will tell you one of the potential 26 alphabet winners is famous as a Red. Having researched this now to get the answers, I will also tell you that of the 100 winningest pitchers of all time (alphabet notwithstanding), four had their best years with the Reds and would be considered “Reds” by history. That doesn’t mean four of the alphabet pitchers are Reds…I mean four of the 100 winningest pitchers of all time are Reds.
Can you guess those four Reds, too?
Now, hold back….don’t post research before tomorrow (Wednesday)…let’s have fun and discuss first…and let’s not research until after midnight Pacific time (3 a.m. Eastern time) to give our West Coast readers a chance to play, too.
Have fun…let the guessing begin…!!
