"Mad Dog" Greg Maddux and his 355 wins speak for its self. In his prime, he won 4 Cy Young Awards straight on two different teams which included 1 with the Cubs and 3 with the Braves. Maddux wasn't known for his velocity but rather known for his accuracy and precision.  The other thing that sets Maddux apart from other pitchers are the 18 Gold Glove Awards. He was part of one of the best rotations in the history of baseball and on a true dynasty with the 90s Braves. Maddux played for 4 teams during his career with the majority coming with the Braves and Cubs in his 23-year career which spanned from 1986 to 2008 but he will be remembered to most with the Braves from 1993 to 2003. Maddux is a true legend of the sport and made it to the hall of fame his own way which was based on control and controlling the game.
