    Maddux pitched for some awful Cub teams and always won. His only 20 win season, Cubs won 78 games.

    Felix Hernandez tied a major league record last night with his 13th straight game of at least 7 innings and 2 ER or less...

    If Kershaw is the most dominant ever, why doesn't he hold that record?

    Just reminds me of the time Schilling and Randy Johnson got hot. Pitchers get hot... they take PED's life goes on. Nothing to see here.

    Schilling is not in their league

    Kershaw and his prime does compare with the all-time greats in their prime

    You're talking ABOUT HIM PITCHING IN HIS FUKING 40's!!!!

    How many guys even do that?

    Go ahead.....give me your list of pitchers who dominated in THEIR FUKING 40's!

    The list is one. Nolan Ryan.

    At 42, Randy Johnson's ERA was 5.

    Steve Carlton's 40-43 ERA's were 5.10, 5.74, and 6.09

    Tom Seaver... 41--4.38, 42--4.59

    You're penetrating acting as if there are a bunch of guys who manage to make it to 40 and throw 2.50 ERAs.
