2008 - Johnny Cueto 8-13 4.68 1.39 153 65


Let's do a fun comparison:

 Age W L IP ERA ERA+ SO BB
Glavine 22 7 17 195.1 4.56 80 84 63
Maddux 21 6 14 155.2 5.61 76 101 74
Johnson 25 7 13 160.2 4.82 82 130 96
Cueto 22 8 13 165.1 4.68 96 153 65

Those are the numbers for the first full season as an MLB pitcher for each of those names listed. I gotta say that Cueto compares quite favorably, don't you think? Granted, all three of the listed Cy Young winners are the exception more than the rule and none of the three allowed home runs at the rate that Cueto has this season, but it's still fun to image the future that lies ahead of Cueto - if Dusty doesn't do what Dusty do.

This is game 154 of the season, so prior to 1961 this would have been the last game of the season and we could all watch one last time and then move on with our lives. Instead, we "get" to watch one last week of baseball. Hopefully the youngsters can keep giving us something worth watching.

EDIT: C.C. Sabathia's pitching for the Brew Crew today, not Suppan. As you were. -BK
