Scottsdale's Donatello Davey passed Frank Chong to become the winningest pitcher in Fingers league history. The 36-year-old currently stands at 186 wins, 2 more than Chong. Davey's career dramatically improved when mcbain10 took over the Scottsdale franchise in Season 5. He was 52-45 through Season 4, and has a record of 134-65 since.

A compatable pitcher in Real Life would be Jimmy Key. Although Davey is not a lefty, his career numbers so far are similar to Key's.

Jimmy Key 186-117 - 2591.2 IP - 3.51 ERA - 1.23 WHIP - 8.7 H/9 - 2.30 K/BB
Don Davey 186-111 - 2563.0 IP - 3.84 ERA - 1.29 WHIP - 8.7 H/9 - 2.24 K/BB


Armas is the next all-time winningest pitcher in Fingers. He's at 161 wins right now (only 32-years-old) and he plays for the MAPS. In two or three seasons he will own that record. But what would it take to get to 300?

At exactly 8.5 years into his career, he's averaging 19 wins per season. At this pace he would hit 300 near the end of Season 19 when he'll be 39 years old.

The biggest factor will be whether he's in a MAPS uniform for a majority of his remaining career. If he is, he has a chance at 300. If not, I think his ceiling is 270 career wins.


Philadelphia chose Cedar Valley College (TX) righthander Leon Padgett with the first overall pick in the Season 12 draft. Padgett, 19, is a hard thrower that projects to dominate righthanded hitters with one spectacular pitch and a decent second pitch. Stamina and control look good, but durability will be a concern. But leave no doubt that this guy was worthy of the number 1 pick as he was far and away the best pitcher in the draft.
