My old buddy Chris Jaffe over at The Hardball Times has a great note about Kyle Lohse and his attempt to make MLB history tonight.

Lohse is going up against the Twins, who’re one of his four former teams. And if he beats them he’ll have recorded at least one victory against all 30 big-league teams.

Jaffe notes that only 12 other pitchers in baseball history have defeated all 30 teams (although it’s worth noting that there have been 30 teams for a relatively short period of baseball history). Still, pretty cool. Check out Jaffe’s article for the full list that Lohse will be trying to join tonight.

    What? A history department? Sweet!

      Has ORU, regained its accreditation?

      • historiophiliac - May 30, 2013 at 12:21 PM

        I have no idea. Why?

      • raysfan1 - May 30, 2013 at 12:41 PM

        I went to ORU, and the university is accredited–or are you just trolling historiophiliac?

        Hey, raysfan, I see the stormchasers out down your way. Stay safe.

    But he plays for the Brewers so this won’t happen.

    Kyle Lohse and the re-Plouffed Brewers against someone named P.J. Walters and the Twins. Lohse’s bid to join the universal I Got Ya club looks promising enough.

      Except that in the last three games against the Twins, the Brewers have lost. Don’t count Lohse’s chickens before they hatch.

    • dluxxx - May 30, 2013 at 12:32 PM

      Plus, it’s the re-Plouffed Twins.

      • ptfu - May 30, 2013 at 1:10 PM

        Arrgh. Why did I think Plouffe was a Brewer? Wish there was an edit function so I could fix it.

      • jwbiii - May 30, 2013 at 5:49 PM

        And the Twins are again de-Plouffed.

    That’s an interesting list. I think I remember Terry Mullholland winning against his 30th team when he was with the Twins, actually. Old Rubber-Arm himself.

    This crowd still cares about pitching wins? F’ing dinosaurs.

    • dluxxx - May 30, 2013 at 12:59 PM

      Only in the most arbitrary of manners….

    Plus interleague play has made it easier as well. Used to e you had to play on at least two teams in each league. That alone was a rarity.

    But still, it is an accomplishment

    I wish him luck, but the way the Brewers are playing, the bullpen will a blow a 2-run lead in the 8th and Lohse will end up with a No-Decision

    • brewcrewchamps - May 30, 2013 at 7:04 PM

      Brewers have to actually get a lead before the bullpen blows it

  8. tuberippin - May 30, 2013 at 8:10 PM

    Would not have guessed Vincente Padilla, Derek Lowe, or Zito.

    Also, HardBallTimes is awesome.
