The Thursday Thinker: The Control Collection

We've talked a lot about Shaun Marcum this week, so you've probably seen this number once or twice: Marcum pitched 195.1 innings last season, and walked just two batters per nine innings while doing so.

As it turns out, those numbers would have qualified him for a relatively small list. In franchise history, only 12 Brewer pitchers have ever kept their BB/9 at or below 2 in a season where they pitched 100 innings or more. How many can you name in five minutes?

The rules remain the same: Post your score in the comments but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there aren't any prizes.

In the highly unlikely event that you get them all, post your time along with your score.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!

By the way, for whatever it's worth, the median season on this list was worth 3.2 WAR.
