Livan Hernandez somehow manages to keep getting work in the Majors.  It's not that he is a bad pitcher, it's just that he shouldn't be any good.  He doesn't throw hard, he's not terribly athletic, and he's 37 years old.  Yet, Hernandez caught on with the Milwaukee Brewers last year after the Atlanta Braves released him, and he intends to continue pitching in 2013. According to William Ladson of MLB.com, Hernandez wants to keep pitching until he reaches 200 wins. RHP Livan Hernandez plans to play big-league baseball in 2013. His goal is to reach 200 victories. He has 178 victories entering '13. #MLB — William Ladson (@washingnats) December 23, 2012 Hernandez will not reach 200 wins in 2013.  He would need to win 22 games, which means he would have to get a starting gig somewhere, and he would have to be unreasonably good.  Last year, Hernandez made exactly ZERO starts.  He went 4-1 on the season.  At that pace, he would have to pitch for the next six years to get to 200 wins. While Hernandez has been relegate to mostly a relief role, some team may be willing to take a chance on him.  He has remained healthy throughout his career and he could be the type of player to get work when a pitching staff suffers injuries.
