The Thursday Thinker: 1000 Inning Brewers

Eleven Brewers have pitched at least 1000 innings in their careers. How many can you pick out of this list of 20?


In our World Series game preview last night I mentioned the following:

Barry Zito, widely seen as an expensive disappointment, has thrown just over 1000 innings as a Giant. Only eleven pitchers have ever thrown 1000 innings as a Brewer.

This seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out a different kind of Sporcle quiz. Given 20 options, how many of the eleven Brewers with 1000+ career innings pitched can you choose without guessing wrong?

In the past we've asked people not to post spoilers in the comments, so everyone gets a chance to try out the quiz without having it spoiled from them. I'm scrapping that rule this year and simply warning you that comments may contain spoilers. Also, please use the comments to post your score but remember there's no reason to cheat here, because there aren't any prizes.

Some of you will likely get all of these. If you do, be sure to post your time along with your score in the comments.

If you finish this quiz and you're looking for more Brewer-related Sporcle quizzes, last week's quiz asking you to name the 2012 Brewers is also still active.

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