Only 12 have won 20 games and 4 are former A's.
I do not know how much games Mudcat won as a A.??
I think it was about 12

Mudcat was a full-time reliever with the A's so he only won seven games total with them. He won 21 with the Twins in 1965.

A friend emailed me in regard to this a few weeks ago, and as a form of trivia asked if I could name the 12 African-American 20-game winners. I got 10 of the 12 (missed Wilson and Jones), but contested the alleged correct answer. My contention is that Ferguson Jenkins is actually African-Canadian, not African-American.

No early 70's at the end of his career. They bought his contract from Cardinals before the '70 season and was the A's closer that year before being traded to the Pirates for Angel Mangual in September. The A's then reaquired him for the stretch run in '71. I don't know why the A's didn't bring him back in '72 or why he couldn't hook on with another team as he did a great job out of the bullpen.

Technically, Al Downing makes five former A's on that list. He spent a mostly ineffective 1970 season split between Oakland and Milwaukee. The following year was his 20-win campaign with the Dodgers.
