Next to 300

Everytime someone gets their 300th win, we hear the same old bs that that person is going to be the last guy to ever win 300 games. Now while it might be awhile (10 years or so) until we get anyone who comes close again, I think it's stupid for someone to say that it won't happen again. With that being said, I do think one of the following players will end up winning 300 games. Who do you think has the best chance to do it? Or do you think it will be someone who hasn't even played in the majors yet and it might be longer then 10-15 years before the next 300 game winner?

Here are some names of some guys who I think have the best shot, starting first with guys who are in their late 20s to early 30s and who have a lot of wins, and then a list of younger pitchers who if they get into a really consistent groove could end up their one day.

The consistent winners:

Roy Halladay (32) 140 wins

Roy Oswalt (31) 131 wins

Javier Vazquez (32) 131 wins

Mark Buehrle (30) 128 wins

CC Sabathia (28) 122 wins

Johan Santana (30) 116 wins

Carlos Zambrano (28) 99 wins

Josh Beckett (29) 95 wins

Jake Peavy (28) 91 wins

Brandon Webb (30) 87 wins

Dan Haren (28) 69 wins

 

Young guys:

Felix Hernandez (23) 44 wins

Justin Verlander (26) 52 wins

Zack Greinke (25) 42 wins

Matt Garza (25) 23 wins

Jon Lester (25) 31 wins

Matt Cain (24) 37 wins

Chad Billingsley (24) 42 wins

Tim Lincecum (24) 29 wins

Yovani Gallardo (23) 14 wins

 

Or none of the above?
