At 14-5, Dartmouth grad Kyle Hendricks of the Cubs is the best pitcher in baseball

Kyle Hendricks is the first pitcher to win 14 games; maybe he will get 20.

I wonder what the all time record for wins by a Dartmouth grad in major league baseball?

Jim Beattie: 12 wins for Seattle in 1984

Mike Remlinger, 10-1 for Atlanta in 1999 – -.909 winning percentage;

Pete Broberg: 14 wins for Brewers in 1975, but had a losing record.

Jeff Tesreau (was a Dartmouth coach): won 26 games for the 1914 New York Giants; is buried in Hanover. 

Cole Sulser of the Orioles has appeared in 43 games this year in relief, with five saves and three wins. The only other Big Green major league pitcher, it seems, is Chuck Seelbach of the Tigers, who won a total of 10 games in relief. I’ve been a Dartmouth guy for 40 years, collecting baseball cards for 50 years but don’t actually recall this name or card:

edit to add: on further review I should qualify this to say his era is over 4.00, and he has given up a league-leading 159 hits over 144 innings. Good season, and winning, but only a fellow alum writing a semi-sports blog would call him the best pitcher in baseball. Go, Kyle.
