Which draft produced the most pitching value in history? In 1984 the Chicago Cubs selected Greg Maddux with the 31st pick in the June Draft. Maddux pitched 23 years and went on to win 355 games and strike out more than 3,300 batters. In the same draft in the sixth round the Cubbies took a skinny lefthander from tiny St. Joseph's University named Jamie Moyer. Moyer pitched 25 years, won 269 games, struck out more than 2,400 batters, and nearly pitched until he was 50. Together they combined for 156 WAR (106 for Maddux) and 624 victories. Their combined career WAR (or if you prefer Win Shares) is the highest by two pitchers selected by one team in the same amateur draft. Unfortunately for the Cubs, Maddux and Moyer did a lot of their good things while wearing the uniforms of other teams.

For a decade, the Braves had three of the top 30 pitchers of all-time in their rotation: Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Smoltz. The trio combined for 15 All-Star selections and five Cy Young Awards. The Braves won the division title in all nine of the full seasons played during that stretch (in 1994 the season was halted due to the labor disagreement). Yet, Atlanta won the World Series only once and captured three pennants. Were they underachievers or was the wild card era a tough time to advance in the postseason? It's tough to lay the blame on the famous pitching trio, but Glavine did struggle in the opening round of the playoffs more often than not, and Maddux had some spotty starts in the LCS. Smoltz was superb in the postseason, which ultimately serves as an important part of his Hall of Fame credentials. But there are other reasons for the Braves struggles in the playoffs, namely the offense and the bullpen. Still, the team built an amazing dynasty, and in the decade with the Big Three, Atlanta was 7-2 in the divisional round, 3-4 in the NLCS, and 1-2 in the Fall Classic. That one World Series title, coming in 1995 at the heart of their stretch with Maddux/Glavine/Smoltz, and their sustained greatness, ensures a place in baseball history for one of the greatest teams of all-time.

The last of the "big five" starting pitchers who debuted between 2000 and 2008, Scherzer could end up the best of them all, though he was the late bloomer. The other four are CC Sabathia, Justin Verlander, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw. The group has a collective nine Cy Young Awards and five no-hitters through 2017. Scherzer is building a high enough peak that even if he ends up with 200-220 wins, he could easily be elected to the Hall of Fame. His peak value is much better than that of John Smoltz and very comparable to that of Nolan Ryan.

The surgery that repaired Hershiser's pitching arm was actually more radical than the one performed on Tommy John. The same surgeon, Dr. Frank Jobe, a lifelong Dodger fan, performed the procedure on Hershiser when the pitcher was 31 years old. Hershiser's entire labrum was repaired and his shoulder was restructured. He was back only 13 months later and won more games (105) after the operation than he did before (99). He didn't have the same bite on his fastball after his arm was rebuilt, but Hershiser was still a tough man to face until he was in his 40s.

Hershiser, Fernando Valenzuela, Burt Hooton, Rick Sutcliffe, and Rick Rhoden are among the group of starting pitchers who were used heavily by Tommy Lasorda and who had arm troubles later. It's not an indictment of Lasorda per se, because a lot of managers of that era wore out arms through heavy usage. A few guys, namely Don Sutton and Bob Welch, never had serious arm problems.

Four pitchers in the top 100 were in the Phillies' rotation in 2011: Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt, and Lee. No wonder that team won 102 games and their fifth consecutive division title. Lee had a stop-and-go career: he had 4-5 solid-to-excellent seasons for the Indians in his 20s, then had a hiccup in his early 30s before giving Philadelphia a few great seasons. He only had eight seasons where he made 30 starts, but received Cy Young Award votes in five of them. He was brilliant in the postseason: 7-0 in his first eight starts with a 1.26 ERA and a 67-7 strikeout-to-walk total.

Moyer became the first pitcher to toss a shutout in four different decades, but he had only ten in his entire career. The lefthander also set most of the old man pitching records that were previously held by Jack Quinn, who died only 65 miles from where Moyer was born. Moyer threw his last pitch after his 49th birthday, and by then he had accumulated 269 wins in a crazy career that spanned a quarter of a century and five presidential administrations. His last win came with a team (the Colorado Rockies) that didn't exist when he made his debut. Moyer enjoyed his most productive seasons with the Mariners, where he was part of their rotation for more than a decade, winning 20 games twice. He used five pitches: a cut fastball, slider, curve, change, and sinker. After discussions with Phil Niekro he contemplated making a return at the age of 51 with a knuckleball.

Following the first game of the 1940 World Series, Newsom's father died in a Cincinnati hotel after having watched his son pitch and win for Detroit. Newsom buried his father, pitched a shutout in Game Five, and came back on one day's rest to start Game Seven. But his teammates could only manage one run, and Bobo lost a heartbreaker, 2-1. It was one of the gutsiest performances in baseball history.

Newsom pitched for six of the eight AL clubs in his 20-year career, and also played for for three teams in the National League. His best pitch was a sinking fastball, and he later used a knuckle curve with success, pitching until he was 45 years old. Newsom called everyone else Bobo, which is how he got tagged with the name. But most of his teammates and people around the ballpark called him "Buck." He was a barrel-chested brute, sort of built like Mickey Lolich, David Wells, or Bartolo Colon.
