CC Sabathia currently leads the majors with 15 wins. He also shared the MLB wins lead in 2009-10.
Since the pitching rubber was set at 60' 6" in 1893, only 4 pitchers have led the majors in wins (alone or tied) for at least 3 straight years. Can you name those 4 pitchers, and which one led for the most years in a row?
(By the way, I found that trying to identify these pitchers by eyeballing the Yearly League Leaders list was surprisingly tedious, because of all the years in which several pitchers tied for the lead; but don't let me discourage you.)
