No. 80: Roy Oswalt (159-93, 3.21 ERA, 133 ERA+, 1.194 WHIP, 1,759 Ks)
Few pitchers in recent memory have been so good so quickly, as Oswalt went 14-3 with a 2.73 ERA as a rookie in 2001 and proceeded to rattle off a 129-64 record with a 3.13 ERA over the first eight seasons of his career. Back injuries have been an issue of late, and it looks as though he will at least sit out the beginning of the 2012 season.
No. 79: Dwight Gooden (194-112, 3.51 ERA, 111 ERA+, 1.256 WHIP, 2,293 Ks)
Oh, what could have been, as Gooden looked like a lock to wind up somewhere in the top quarter of this list when he introduced himself to the MLB with a 17-9, 2.60 ERA, 276 Ks season as a 19-year-old in 1984. Before his age 24 season, he already had a career record of 91-35, but drugs derailed what was a career of limitless potential.
No. 78: Eppa Rixey (266-251, 3.15 ERA, 115 ERA+, 1.272 WHIP, 1,350 Ks)
Rixey split his 21-year career between the Phillies and Reds, and he topped the 15-win mark eight time, leading the league with 25 in 1922. His career was an up-and-down one, as he also topped the 15-loss mark five times, but when he was at his best, he was up there with anyone in the league.
No. 77: C.C. Sabathia (176-96, 3.51 ERA, 125 ERA+, 1.227 WHIP, 2,017 Ks)
As reliable a starter as there is in baseball today, Sabathia has made at least 28 starts and won at least 11 games in each of his 11 big-league seasons. Since 2007, he has gone 95-40 with a 3.09 ERA, and he has finished in the top five in Cy Young voting each season, winning the award in 2007.
No. 76: Lefty Gomez (189-102, 3.34 ERA, 126 ERA+, 1.352 WHIP, 1,468 Ks)
While his career spanned just 14 seasons, Gomez was as good as they came in his prime, and from 1931-1939, he went 163-84 with a 3.17 ERA, twice leading the league in wins, twice in ERA and three times in strikeouts as he won the pitching Triple Crown twice.
