Franchise Roll Call 

So which teams have the most pitchers in my top 200?   Take a look!

To be eligible, a pitcher must have been active on the franchise for a minimum of 4 seasons.  Why 4?  Seems like a fair number of season to say a player was a big "part" of the franchise.  In the rare occasion that a pitcher did not play 4 seasons on any one team, he will be considered a member of the franchise in which he pitched the most.

The franchises listed below include their entire franchise history.  Example: the Baltimore total includes St. Louis Browns' pitchers, etc.  Here is a list of all MLB franchises and their "variations."
