Did you know: That Bert Blyleven has more shutouts than

– Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez. Combined.
– Roger Clemens and Chris Carpenter. Combined.
– Greg Maddux, John Smoltz and Mark Buehrle. Combined.
– Tom Glavine, Mike Mussina and Brandon Webb. Combined.
– Orel Hershiser, Curt Schilling, Johan Santana and Bartolo Colon. Combined.
– Dave Stieb and Jack Morris. Combined.
– The New York Yankees pitchers have had since 1988. Combined.
– The entire American League in 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and … every year going back to 1992.

He also has more shutouts than every single pitcher of his era except Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan, Hall of Famers who each have exactly ONE more shutout than Bert Blyleven.

No, Joe, I didn't know until now.
