Cubs Trivia:

In 1904, which Cubs pitcher set a record by pitching 39 consecutive complete games?

And his arm fell completely off in 1905.

I had this as trivia on one of my MLB2K games. It's Jack Taylor. Awesome fact #2 about Jack Taylor: This streak was reallly at 187, but he threw in relief in some games in between the streak, so it only officially stands at 39. This guy could pitch the entire season as a one man rotation, he must be Dick Tidrow's grandfather.

Look at these stats:

I'm starting to think some of those stories are true. Those old pitchers were ridiculous.

No one will ever touch the innings pitched or complete games record in the history of man. You can write that down as a fact. At least until they start letting androids pitch.
