    History about to be made

    Stephen Worton of the Berlin Panzers is closing in on an enormous achievement. He sits a mere 8 K's away from 5000 career strikeouts. He would be 178 behind overall at that point and 1301 behind all-time leader Randall Goff. At 35, Worton projects to end this season around 5050 K's. He would head into age 36 season sitting 1250 behind Goff so it doesn't look too good for the veteran to pass Goff for the all-time lead at this point but to finish his career as the 2nd best in history will be something to be proud of.

    He also sits at 271 Wins currently and you have to believe a guy who has won 18+ games 7 of the last 8 years will make 300 wins in the coming seasons and become the 8th or 9th (Elvin Walton is at 289 but a FA at 41 so I'm guessing 8th) to reach this milestone. The goal is for Worton to win 57 more games in his career to pass Stephen Johnson for #3 on the all-time wins list.

    Time will tell with these races, but Worton has already solidified a spot in the Hall of Fame, now he's aiming to solidify his place among the top pitchers ever to throw in VLR.

    I think the record is safe really, but that won't stop me from taking a run at it
