The 2010 Padres' Incredible Bullpen

5+ Pitchers, 30+ IP, 2.00 ERA or lower (Since 1880)
  • 2010 Padres
    • Mike Adams, Heath Bell, Ernesto Frieri, Tim Stauffer, Joe Thatcher
  • 1906 Cubs
    • Mordecai Brown, Orval Overall, Jack Pfiester, Ed Reulbach, Jack Taylor
  • 1907 Cubs
    • Mordecai Brown, Orval Overall, Jack Pfiester, Ed Reulbach, Carl Lundgren
  • 1909 Cubs
    • Mordecai Brown, Orval Overall, Jack Pfiester, Ed Ruelbach, Rip Hagerman
This is subject to change because not only do the Padres play today, but there is the possibility of playing not just 1, but 2 (!) tiebreakers if they win and the Braves also win today, and then they also lose against the Giants on Monday.  All five of them are susceptible to going over 2.00 with one bad inning, but it's amazing they're gotten to this point.

The comparison isn't exact either, because the early 1900's Cubs' pitchers had at least 100 IP, and often more than 200.  Even with evolution of the modern bullpen, the Padres might still be the first with 5 such pitchers since 1909.
