Denny McLain in 1968. Before that the last one was Dizzy Dean in1934. Lefty Grove did it before that in 1931 and twice in thetwenties, as did Grover Cleveland Alexander. Apart from that youhave to go back to the dead-ball era. The most wins any pitcher hadeven coming close to that since then was 27 …by Steve Carlton in1972 and Bob Welch in 1990. Before that you'd have to go back to 19th Century when teams rarelycarried more than three or four pitchers on their roster. Wintotals for pitchers were often 30 or more with Hoss Radbournewinning 60 games in one season, a record that is unlikely to everbe broken. With the 5 man pitching rotation today, it will likelynever happen again. As a pitcher would be lucky to even get 30starts in a season. ( Full Answer )

It's never happened, not when all the teams played in New York. The person who probably came closest was Sal Maglie, who pitched for the Giants, Dodgers and Yankees in New York before ending his career in 1958, four years before the Mets were born and the first year that the Dodgers and Giants were …no longer home teams in New York. Others like Maglie who played for all three New York teams were Fred Merkle, first baseman, and the following pitchers: Waite Hoyt, Burleigh Grimes, Johnny Allen and Bobo Newsom. Only Casey Stengel ever suited up for the four New York teams - as a player with the Giants, as a manager with the Yankees and Mets, and as player and manager with the Dodgers. . Jose Vizcaíno, Darryl Strawberry, and Ricky Ledee are the only Major League Baseball players to have played for all four (one-time) New York teams -- the New York Yankees, the New York Mets, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the San Francisco Giants.

- Ever since the modern era began in 1901, the best team in 110+ years is the New York Yankees (American League). There are several great dynasties other than the Yankees. For instance, one of the most powerful teams in history include: The 1906 Chicago Cubs , led by Hall of Fame pitcher "Three F…inger" Brown and player-manager Frank Chance and won a record 116 games, but lost to the Chicago White Sox in a huge World Series upset. The 2001 Seattle Mariners , led by former Japanese legend Ichiro Suzuki, they and manager Lou Piniella (who retired on August 22, 2010 on a 16-5 loss) the Mariners won 116 games as well, but failed to bring home a pennant in a big upset of the New York Yankees in the ALCS. The 1954 Cleveland Indians , led by Hall of Fame pitchers Bob Feller, Bob Lemon, Early Wynn, and slugger Al Rosen held manager Al Lopez's ballclub win 111 games, an American League record at the time and end the Yankees's skein of 5 straight titles and pennants, but lost in another huge, but epic upset to the New York Giants (became San Francisco Giants since 1958). The 1986 New York Mets , led by ignitors Lenny Dykstra, Wally Backman and Ray Knight, cleanup batters Darryl Strawberry, Gary Carter, and Keith Hernandez, ace starters Dwight Gooden, Sid Fernandez, Bob Ojeda, Ron Darling, and reliever Jesse Orosco, the powerful Mets won 108 games and finished a staggering 21 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East, they ran up with a tough NLCS against Mike Scott's Houston Astros, winning a 16 inning Game 6 to reach the fall classic, and taking a seven game series against the Boston Red Sox in the most thrilling fashion. However, their dynasty collapsed in the next few years. The 1969 Baltimore Orioles , led by sluggers Frank Robinson, Boog Powell and Brooks Robinson, sparkplugs Paul Blair and Dave Johnson, and aces Jim Palmer, Dave McNally, Mike Cuellar and Tony Phoebus, this loaded team with Earl Weaver as the manager, won 109 games, won the first-ever AL East and beat pitchers Dean Chance and Jim Kaat, hitters Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, and Harmon Killebrew and their AL West winner Minnesota Twins in a sweep of three games. However, against the Cinderella team, but underdog New York Mets, the Birds lost in five games in the biggest shock and upset of all time. They won a title in 1970, however, and another pennant in 1971. The 1975 Cincinnati Reds , led by ignitors Joe Morgan, Ken Griffey, Sr., Pete Rose and Dave Concepcion, sluggers Lee May, Tony Perez, Johnny Bench and George Foster, these Reds, or "Big Red Machine," won 108 games in their signature year in the 1970s when they dominated the National League under manager "Sparky" Anderson, they reached the World Series, but unexpectedly had to push the series to seven games against sluggers Fred Lynn, Jim Rice and Carlton Fisk, including veteran slugger Carl Yastrzemski and ace Bill Lee's Boston Red Sox before winning in one of the greatest World Series ever. They repeated as champs in 1976 but by 1982 their great dynasty finally cracked and they fell to the basement. The 1927 New York Yankees , led by sluggers "Babe" Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Bob Meusel, ignitors Earle Combs, Mark Koenig and "Jumping Joe" Dungan, aces Waite Hoyt, Urban Shocker, Herb Pennock, George Pipgras, "Dutch" Ruether, and reliever Wilcy Moore, they and skipper Miller Huggins, the best Yankees team of all won 110 games, lost just 44, and swept Paul Waner, Lloyd Waner, "Kiki" Cuyler, "Pie" Traynor and "Oil" Smith's Pittsburgh Pirates in an easy sweep and copped the fourth and last game at home in style. They kept winning until 1965 when their legendary dynasty FINALLY collapsed. The 2004 Boston Red Sox , led by aces Curt Schilling, Derek Lowe, Tim Wakefield and Pedro Martinez, closer Keith Foulke, ignitor Johnny Damon, sluggers David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Bill Mueller and Mark Bellhorn, and with the managerial skills of new manager Terry Francona, the Red Sox finished second in the AL East to sparkplug Derek Jeter, sluggers Jason Giambi, Tino Martinez, Gary Sheffield, and Alex Rodriguez, aces Kevin Brown, Javier Vasquez, and closer Mariano Rivera's New York Yankees, winners of 101 games that year. However, Boston finished 3 games back with 98 victories, but still won the American League wildcard, which means having the best second-place finish in the league. The Sox swept sluggers Vladimir Guerrero, Jose Guillen, Garret Anderson, sparkplug Darin Erstad, aces Bartolo Colon, John Lackey, and closer Francisco Rodriguez's Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. When Boston faced the Yankees in the ALCS, they were down 2 games to 0 when they lost Game 3, 19-8 at home! However, Boston recovered to win games 4, 5, 6 and 7 to make the biggest comeback ever and sweep slugger Albert Pujols, Jim Edmonds, Scott Rolen, Larry Walker, ignitor Edgar Renteria, aces Chris Carpenter, Matt Morris, Jason Marquis and Jeff Suppan's St. Louis Cardinals to win their first title in 86 years (1918)! They won another title in 2007 and made the playoffs every year since 2003, but it may end in 2010. The 1981 Montreal Expos , led by sluggers Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, sparkplug Tim Raines, ace Steve Rogers and closer Jeff Reardon, and manager Dick Williams helped the Expos won the second half of the season due to a mid-season strike, beat slugger Mike Schmidt, ace Steve Carlton and closer Tug McGraw's Philadelphia Phillies in the deciding fifth game. However, against skipper Tommy Lasorda, ace Fernando Valenzuela, star infielders Davey Lopes, Ron Cey, Bill Russell, and Steve Garvey's Los Angeles Dodgers, it wasn't easy for Montreal to beat them as the score was 1-1 in the 9th inning of the deciding fifth game, too. LA's Rick Monday homered and the Dodgers went on to win the fall classic. The HR cost the Expos the fortune of their franchise and their first ever pennant (they never got closer to a World Series). By 1986, most of the players on their team became ex-Expos on business decisions and attendance collapsed also. The 1995 Cleveland Indians , led by ignitor Kenny Lofton, sluggers Albert Belle, Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, and Carlos Barega, veterans Eddie Murray and Dave Winfield, aces Orel Hershiser and Dennis Martinez and closer Jose Mesa, they won 100 games, but lost only 44 games in a 144-game schedule due to the 1994 strike that canceled the season. The Indians ended 35 years of futility, won their division by 30 games and beat Mo Vaughn and Jose Canseco's Red Sox in the first-ever division series and ended sluggers Ken Griffey, Jr., Edgar Martinez, speedster Vince Coleman, ace Randy Johnson, reliever Tim Belcher and rookie sensation Alex Rodriguez's Seattle Mariners' terrific Cinderella season in a 6 game League Championship Series. However, they had to face aces Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, reliever Mark Wohlers, slick fielder Marquis Grissom, sluggers Fred McGriff and Chipper Jones's Atlanta Braves in the World Series. The Braves led 3 games to 2 going into Game 6. However, Tom Glavine and Mark Wohlers combined for just one allowed hit. Only Cleveland backup catcher Tony Pena's 6th inning single was the only hit for Cleveland and Dave Justice's homer provided all the needed scoring. Cleveland went on to build a great dynasty that ended by 2002 and a lucky playoff ALCS berth in 2007. The 1994 Montreal Expos , led by ace Pedro Martinez, closer John Wetteland, sluggers Moises Alou, Marquis Grissom and Larry Walker, and skipper Felipe Alou worked altogether to put the Expos on the top spot in the NL East, 6 games up on the Braves on August 11, when a strike ended the season and playoffs. On that day, the Expos had a 74-40 won-loss record and were reportedly on pace to win 110 or more games, with 5 Expos making the All-Star team that year. Unfortunately, the strike forced to end the Expos' remarkable season and their franchise collapsed from the next season on and became the Washington Nationals in 2005, moving to the nation's capital. Finally, the 1998 New York Yankees , led by ignitors Derek Jeter, Chuck Knoblauch and Paul O'Neill, sluggers "Chili" Davis, Tino Martinez, Chad Curtis, Darryl Strawberry and Bernie Williams, aces David Wells, Andy Pettite, David Cone and closer Mariano Rivera, skipper Joe Torre's Yankees won 114 games and lost 48, went on to sweep Ivan Rodriguez and Juan Gonzalez's Texas Rangers, Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez and Sandy Alomar, Jr.'s Cleveland Indians and pound out a sweep of Kevin Brown, Greg Vaughn and Trevor Hoffman's San Diego Padres to win the first of 3 straight titles and the second one of a skein of 4 titles in 5 years to improve the 1998 Yankees's overall record to 125-50. The Yankees reached the World Series in 2001 for the 5th time in 6 years and in 2003 but reached the postseason 13 times in 14 years before winning their first World Series since 2000 in 2009. They may reach the playoffs again in 2010. These were 12 of the most powerful dynasties ever and there are many more to come in the future. ( Full Answer )
Well yes, but I think they were called the Cincinnati Red Stockings, and they were the first team in the National League.
The Florida Marlin (Miami) and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (Tampa), have never hosted a MLB All-Star game. Although Tampa was supposed to host the 2000 game, it was moved to Atlanta instead. The Washington Nationals have never hosted an All-Star game, although they hosted it as the Senators eons ago. A…lso, if you count the fact that the Expos, who have since moved to Washington have hosted the game in the early 1980`s. ( Full Answer )

Most teams have 12-13 pitchers on a team. However, in September they are allowed to expanded their rosters from the original 25 to 40; at that time they always include another 5-8 pitchers in the call up.
On average, there are about 11 to 13 pitchers on every Major League team. There are, on average, 5 starting pitchers, a closer (last-resort pitcher), a set-up pitcher (a pitcher who throws while the closer is still warming up, also the backup closer), 2 long relief pitchers (1st inning through 4th i…nning backup), and 3 middle relief pitchers (5th inning through early 8th inning backup). The starting pitchers are the pitchers that start pitching in the 1st inning. The pitching rotation is the order of determining what starter will start. The rest of the pitchers make up the bullpen.
