He'd need 217 more to get 300. Divide 217 by 15 and that's just short of 15 per year. Until he's age 42. His career high in wins is 14. Giants better get some offense.<br /><br />Rick Reuschel pitched until he was 42 and finished 214-191. If Matt Cain could get to 200 wins that would be something. Another 10 years of good health averaging 13 wins/year, he could do it. He has 210 starts, so it takes 3 starts for every win. That means 130 wins will take 390 more starts. He averages 33 starts/year, so that will take about 12 years. He'll be 39, which seems doable.M.C.

He's a big boy, too, bigger than most middle infielders, for sure. He also got hit in the leg by a comebacker! The guy is a great ballplayer, not just a great pitcher.M.C.

But he did, so I still have my possessions, at least for now.nomisnalahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08297640472949764321noreply@blogger.com
