Baseball trivia - NO GOOGLING

OK, 3 pitchers have 100 wins and sub-3.25 ERA for the decade of the 00's. 2 are active, one is not. Name them.

I really couldn't guess on ERAs, but for the non-active one I'd guess Clemens; the other two would be Randy Johnson and...I don't know. I bet Jamie Moyer has the wins but probably not the ERA. Ditto maybe for Wakefield. Smoltz (and a bunch of other relievers like Rivera) probably has the ERA but doesn't have the wins. Beckett? Peavey? Webb? Nah, probably not. Halladay? Oswalt? Santana? Yeah, I'll go with Santana.

Didn't they do this one on Mike and Mike in the Morning last week? If not I think it was something very similar and Santana was on that list also. I'm gonna guess Pedro Martinez but I'm not a big baseball fan and I wasn't paying much attention while listening so I don't know the third, maybe Maddux?

Yep, that's where I heard it.

Pedro is the inactive guy. So Santana & Pedro. One more to get, the one that Mike & Mike and me all missed. But, once I heard it I was like "oh yeah....."

I am 90% sure it's not Clemens - while he played all the way through 2007, he had a couple half-seasons in there, and even when he was full-time for Houston, they didn't score any runs for him.

Since this is probably some sort of timely comparison, I'm going to guess that the inactive pitcher is Glavine.

edit: nevermind, you posted while I was thinking.

Is the third guy Petitte? Zito? I doubt that since both of them have had at least a few 4.00+ ERA seasons...

edit2: I bet I got it - Petitte and Clemens former teammate - Roy Oswalt?

There you go!

Pedro, Santana and Oswalt. Once they said Oswalt I thought about it and was like "yeah, that makes sense...."

My 3rd guy was Zambrano.
