Gregory Alan Maddux "Mad Dog"
12-time Golden Glove Winner
4 Time Cy Young Winner
Current Cubs pitcher, often debatedly called the best active pitcher in Major League Baseball. (Roger Clemens Pedro Martinez
and Randy Johnson
are usually the subjects of debate alongside Maddux)
Although some of his stats like strike outs are considerably lower than Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson, and he cannot throw a ball nearly as hard, his consistancy and accuracy are a force to be reckoned with. He studies hitters and understands how they hit and can manage to usually completely accurately think out where the ball will go before it even leaves the bat.
Greg Maddux is often undderated due to people misunderstanding that faster pitching means better pitching. Media and public attention usually go to Roger Clemens, but many people recently have started warming up to the fact that Greg Maddux, "The Professor", could be the best active pitcher in major league baseball, perhaps even of our lifetimes.
