ProfessorTerguson: Best pitcher ever.


So many Yom Kippur afternoons as a child where our mother reminded us that if Sandy Kofaux can sit out Yom Kippur we can not play baseball with our friends for one day.

Strictly speaking, you could display the statute on Yom Kippur, but you probably can't cover it or uncover it on that day.

He was indeed the best ever, for three seasons.   He was really good for another three.   Other than that, no.

Incredibly biased here, but also coming with it.  My starting pitcher (if I could pick through time) in a game I absolutely have to win:  Bob Gibson.  This is not to downgrade Koufax in any way at all and prime Koufax makes a very very short list of pitchers I would consider in this case, but prime Gibson would get my nod.

I'd check the lineup, go righty/lefty heavy. Granted, the 27 Yankees were three lefties, one switch, and the rest right. But Ruth and Gehring were two of the lefties, so you're kind of farked either way.

Bob Gibson.

He'd throw close to crowd the batter, then stare down the umpire ready to toss him.

/and then get 27 Ks

I'm not smart enough about baseball to offer an opinion on the best players ever, but I do know the home plate umpire should be Enrico Pallazzo.

cmon subby, you can't even spell his name right?

Best third-strike call I've ever seen.
