When Dennis Eckersley retired in 1998, Jesse Orosco took over the all-time games pitched lead (#1), a spot he still holds through today, and one of the few pitchers in baseball history with more than one-thousandcareer games pitched.

Bullpens have changed. Should the baseball writers change as well and regularly recognize relievers, perhaps even giving a seperate place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame? How about middle relievers — do they belong or not? Share your opinion on Baseball Fever .

Did you know that Lee Smith , top 20 on the all-time games pitched leaderboard, is also in the top 20 on the all-time saves leaderboard?
