Glavine Wins #300

It took him a while to get there, but Tom Glavine finally got his 300 win yesterday in Wrigely field last night. Only 23 pitchers have ever reached that mark and now Glavine has a sure ticket to the hall of fame. Glavine becomes the fifth lefty and the first since the great Steve Carlton in 1983 to win 300. It was a great moment last night for Glavine and the cherry on top of a terrific hall of fame career. Remember this moment because their might not be another 300 game winner for a long time. The closest to 300 is Randy Johnson at 283 but he is out with a back injury and may never play again. I think there won't be another for 5-10 years. There are a lot of great young prospects out there like Justin Verlander and Cole Hamels, who could win 300 games. But please, remember this day.
