One of these guys is Glavine and the other is Mussina.
A few things -
1) While Glavine is a compiler, he also was a dominant pitcher for a decent amount of years. Mussina was great, but was he ever dominant? Glavine was considered one of the best pitchers in baseball for several years, but did anyone really look at Mussina in that way? 5 All-Star Games for Moose, 10 for Glavine, and 2 Cy Youngs.
2) I know wins are largely meaningless, but 300 wins is a big deal.
3) Pitcher WAR is calculated mostly using FIP, right? I'm passing on it as an important stat in this argument.
