On the ninth, George Uhle of the Athletics notched win number 200 for his career. Uhle has always been a second-tier pitcher, having never won more than 18 in any of his sixteen major league seasons. His career record is 200 - 188, so this is as much a testament to longevity as it is to pure talent. On the other hand, he convinced Connie Mack, a pretty good judge of talent, to pay him almost $20,000 per year a couple of years ago, so he must have had something going for him.
