Sporcle Friday: Royals pitchers with 100 career wins

These guys have The Will to Win.

MLB: ALDS-Houston Astros at Kansas City Royals John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

You stat nerds can come up with all the pitching metrics you want - FIP, BABIP, DRIP, BIP, it doesn’t matter. The only stat that matters is WINS. Pitching wins show what pitchers wants to win more*, and today’s quiz measures the will to win.

*-so long as they last five innings or more, get enough run support, and have their bullpen hold onto the lead for them, and that’s only starting pitching wins, don’t even ask us about reliever wins which are a convoluted and ridiculous stat to even keep.

The Royals have employed a fair number of pitchers over the years, but 37 of them have 100 career wins in the Major Leagues. The years listed are their stint in Kansas City. Some of these pitchers won all of those games with the Royals. Others didn’t win a single game in a Royals uniform, having made their name elsewhere.

Of the 37 Royals pitchers who have 100 career Major League wins, how many can you name?
