It'll be fun now that war-era players show up on these lists, though. Hank Borowy won 58 of his first 109 games and went to the World Series with two different teams during the war and didn't pitch that well when all the regulars came back.

Mulder, Hudson and Zito are all 55+. Several Yankees rank high. Guidry, Pettite, Borowy, Gomez, Chien-Ming Wang, Johnny Allen.

Clemens just misses with 354 in 709 games. But if u only count starts (707) he qualifies.

Mussina picked up win #50 in just his 90th game. He had 55 W in his first 100 G, and 61 in his first 109. Marichal had 50 W in 97 G, 51 W in 100 G, and 56 W in 109 G.
