Look who crashed the 8 wins list

Ubaldo Jimenez has the most wins in the bigs with 10. Then, after last night, there are seven pitchers tied for the second most wins in baseball with 8.

Cy Young candidate David Price has 8.
So does Mets surprise stud Mike Pelfrey.
Old friend Derek Lowe has 8 wins too.

And last night four more pitchers got to win #8.

Roy Halladay wasn't perfect but was good enough for his eighth.

Adam Wainwright and Clay Buchholz each added to their Cy Young bids with complete game shutouts and win #8.

And then comes the party crasher... Mr. Vulture, Tyler Clippard.
He's still piling up wins.

He might no longer be on the Jack Chesbro pace... but he IS on pace to win 23 games.

The record for wins in a season by a reliever is 18 by Elroy Face in 1959. That year he went 18-1 with 10 saves.

Clippard is only 10 vulture wins away from tying him.

It's a diabolical plot to get his name in the record books... and I am loving it.
