    If I were to ask you to name the greatest pitchers of all-time, you’d probably throw me back a list that included Christy Mathewson, Cy Young and Walter Johnson. You might even get a little more modern with names like Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan and Sandy Koufax. And if you were really daring, you might get even get more modern than that with names like Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux and Randy Johnson.

    One name that you’d likely omit is Satchel Paige, which is a shame because he ranks among the greatest to ever step on the mound. We just don’t have the statistics to prove it.
