The Record Update Pt 2

Now that we have the offense out of the way, lets talk pitching.Curt Schilling(PHI),Jimmy Springer(TAC),and Al Carreras(STL) have always been huge name pitchers in this league and have owned many records between them.One record that i dont see being broken by anyone other than these guys is complete games,with the new AI and changes made to whatif these guys are the top dogs probably for life!To give these guys some credibility i am going to list a few record facts to support them.Out of the 3 Springer leads win % by a large chunk and neither of the other 2 are in the top 5,Schilling holds the strikeout title and i dont think any of the other 2 will catch him,Carreras and Schilling are tied for shutouts in their career,and Carreras has a 6 win lead over schilling245-239 for the win's record.a 33 yr old David Lugo(IND) is not far behind them with 194,so it will be interesting to see if danman can get him wins to put him in contention for the record.There is another good pitcher in the world that deserves some recognition named Robert Hinchcliffe from the Salem City Slickers that owns some records.He recently passed Schilling in games started but has thrown 305 less innings than Schilling and is behind leader Carl Blalock(176) by 2 in most losses followed by Pedro Johnson(172)(NAS) and a young Joshua Womack(149) at 32 yrs old in Baltimore.Some players are stuck on bad teams with no offense but these guys show up without injuries for a great chunk of the time and i felt they Hinchcliffe deserved the recognition.
The save record is owned by Benji Banks at 441 and has a crop of young pitchers coming for his record.Rafeal Tatis(NYJ) is 6 yrs younger and is already at 396 ,followed byVin Estrada(OTT)32 yrs old and 345 saves and then Davey Sosa(FLA) at 325 and 31 yrs old.Save percentage is lead by Davey Sosa in a extremely close race with Hector Kierschnick (PHIL) and then Rafeal Tatis.Tony De La Vega(BAL)leads the world in OAV followed by Ed Owen ,another up and comer from St. Louis.De La Vega also is tied for 1st at the moment for K's through 9.A couple other players making a push at he K/9 is another Baltimore player named Chance Rivera and a 29 yr old Graeme Hinch from Seattle Emeralds.Also we have a new ERA leader for the time being in Joe DiFelice(STL) who recently overtook it from Jimmy Springer.
Here are a couple fun facts i noticed.Schilling leads league with 51,381 pitches thrown 3,500 more than Robert Hinchcliffe(who is 3rd). 9 more wild pitches from Eddie Bryant and we have a new wild pitch leader.and the 4th and 5th worst OAV pitchers ever in the world still found homes in Salem(Marshall Cox) and Vancouver(Troy Downs) not being harsh i had Cox, but just found it interesting they have homes!
