Sorry I wasn’t able to post this Thursday night. Idaho State opened their football season and I was involved with the game until after 11PM.

This doesn’t happen often anymore, especially with five man rotations, so I thought it deserved comment. With Jose’ Contreras winning his 10th game, the Sox now have four pitchers in double digit win totals. I took a look back in the records to see how often the Sox have done this in the past fifty years.

1955-Donovan (15), Pierce (15), Trucks (13), Harshman (11)

1957-Pierce (20), Donovan (16), Wilson (15), Keegan (10)

1961-Pizarro (14), Pierce (10), Baumann (10), McLish (10)

1963-Peters (19), Pizarro (16), Herbert (13), Horlen (11)

1971-Wood (22), Bradley (15), John (13), Johnson (12)

1974-Katt (21), Wood (20), Bahnsen (12), Johnson (10)

1977-Stone (15), Barrios (14), Knapp (12), Kravec (11)

1979-Kravec (15), Wortham (14), Baumgarten (13), Trout (11)

1984-Seaver (15), Bannister (14), Dotson (14), Hoyt (13)

1985-Burns (18), Seaver (16), Nelson (10), Bannister (10)

1993-McDowell (22), Fernandez (18), Alvarez (15), Bere (12)

1994-Bere (12), Alvarez (12), Fernandez (11), McDowell (10)

1996-Fernandez (16), Alvarez (15), Tapani (13), Baldwin (11)

2000-Sirotka (15), Baldwin (14), Parque (13), Eldred (10)

2003-Loaiza (21), Colon (15), Buehrle (14), Garland (12)

Now...how about five pitchers with double digit wins? Even rarer...

1960-Pierce (14), Baumann (13), Staley (13), Wynn (13), Shaw (13)

1964-Peters (20), Pizarro (19), Horlen (13), Wilhelm (13), Buzhardt (10)

1965-Fisher (15), John (14), Buzhardt (13), Horlen (13), Peters (10)

1982-Hoyt (19), Burns (13), Koosman (11), Lamp (11), Dotson (11)

1983-Hoyt (24), Dotson (22), Bannister (16), Koosman (11), Burns (10)

1990-McDowell (14), Hibbard (14), Perez (13), King (12), Jones (11)

If Orlando Hernandez can pick up two in the final month, he’ll join the list of double figure winners giving the Sox five.
