Here's the original Maddux post, with career and single-season leaders, and a bunch of other factoids.
Every team has thrown at least one Maddux.
14: Blue Jays, Phillies, Twins
12: Brewers, Cardinals, Cubs, Giants
11: Angels, Reds
9: Mariners, Red Sox, Yankees
8: Astros, Athletics, Nationals/Expos (4 in each form), Padres
7: Rangers, Tigers, White Sox
6: Diamondbacks, Indians, Mets, Orioles
5: Marlins, Rays, Royals
It should come as no surprise to learn that the team Greg Maddux spent most of his career with has the highest total. The Pirates at #2 might be a surprise, unless you know that Zane Smith's 7 Madduxes are second only to Greg himself, and all 7 of them came with Pittsburgh. It also shouldn't it be a surprise that the expansion teams that weren't around until 1993 or 1998 land at the bottom of the list. Frankly, it shouldn't be too surprising to see the Royals near the bottom either, given their lack of success in the Maddux era.
Most Madduxes against:
17: Nationals/Expos (5 as Nationals, 12 as Expos)
15: Cardinals, Cubs
13: Astros, Reds
11: Indians, Mets
10: Blue Jays, Pirates, Rays, Royals
9: Braves, Brewers, Dodgers, Giants, Tigers, Twins
8: Athletics, Mariners, Orioles, White Sox
7: Red Sox, Rockies, Yankees
6: Padres, Phillies
The Expos played in the same division as some of the Maddux's greatest practitioners, leading to their lofty total. The Marlins land at the very bottom of the list, just as they did above. They missed out on the first five years of the Maddux era, but even so, they've been involved in far fewer than their share of Madduxes. Yet another thing that stinks about being a Marlins fan.
I'll do my best to keep these lists current.
