Did Ken Holtzman win 20 w/ the Cubs?

 

And is Glen Beckert a GG winner?

Beckert is correct. I think that was in 1968.  The other guy is before him. 

 

Holtzman did not win 20.  It happened a year or two before he started.

Sorry, I didn't realize the photo was life-size.

He isn't actually throwing in that photo.  So TWC might still doubt...

I would post a big picture of him throwing (right handed) if I was smart enough.

You're all wrong.

His name is John Lieber, not Jim Abbot.

Maybe he had TJS on one of his arms and he started throwing with the other so he didn't have to miss time. That's some serious TWTW that our TJ guys don't have.

I'm still waiting for Spriggs' apology.  *I* posted images of him throwing as a lefty.  All Spriggs did was to make snide remarks.

 

The only way he can make it up to me is to convince Miggy to join Twitter.  Or something.

Something about whether Shark was a #3 or not?

Would that be a hard or a soft #3?

If we're grading his total skill on the scouting scale... complete soft 3. No major league future there. Org guy. Clearly.

 

Oh, and if you disagree you're a Shark lover or I'll just call you all a bunch of haterz.

Dick Ellsworth won 22 games in 1963. He was the last Cubs lefty to win 20.

Kenny Hubbs won the GG around 1963 also. He died before the 1964 season.
