He always had low pitch counts.

Not just from longevity (which is true for many on list) but after he "found it" around 1998, he was occasionally as brilliant as Maddux for pop-up inducing ability, batter frustration levels, etc. -- almost more impressive, due to slowness, age, general sense that he was doing it without "raw skill," just guile alone. Of course, he was also capable of getting shelled any given day, but there are many more surprising names on this list. Jaime Navarro?!?

And what a game from 1997 it was Raphy! He was facing this lineup from Cleveland:

Marquis Grissom
Julio Franco
Jim Thome
Matt Williams
David Justice
Manny Ramirez
Tony Fernandez
Sandy Alomar
Omar Vizquel

Every player in this lineup made the All-Star team at least twice. 38 All-Star appearances altogether and a total of 2519 cumulative career home runs (and counting).

Quite a lineup sent down by the Moose.

It was July 22, 1997. Maddux threw a complete game 4-1 victory over the Cubs in only 76 pitches. 59 pitches in the first 7 innings, a rest as though it were a long rain delay, and then back out there for game 2. Of course the Braves were so loaded with pitchers that they were able to schlep eventual 20 game winner Denny Neagle out there for game 2.

Here are his career shutouts sorted by pitches. He had one with 99 and another with 93. There is a also a game from 1997 that does not have pitch data, in which he allowed 1 hit and no walks .

The non-sensical fan in me was thinking that the Braves could have pulled him after 7 innings comfortably ahead, and then pitch him again in game 2.
