1. Three legends!

Hard to believe they have losing records!

2. Two relievers and a guy who didn't make it to the big leagues until he was 42.

I actually saw Paige pitch in 1965 with the As. He was 59.

3. "its not good or bad, but closers have changed baseball" bruce sutter

both sutter and fingers were pioneering closers

paige was a legend before he ever stood on a major league pitching mound. his record in the majors as a 40 something year old pitcher was 38-41. in the negro league he was 100-50 and, if I remember correctly, he was voted into the hall of fame by a negro league sub committee.
