    1. I know Pedro isn't the greatest pitcher of all time. Other men have won more games, had better numbers, won more Cy Youngs and did it longer.

      But I honestly believe that my eyes have never seen a better pitcher in his prime than Pedro. He was everything you could possibly want in a pitcher. I feel privileged to have seen him at his best.

  1. I'm no Bud Selig fan, but I never understood why he was villified for the tie game. The managers went to him and said they had no pitchers left. What was he supposed to do? Managers had taken heat in the past for not getting everyone in the game (which was preposterous). In response to that, they put everyone in and got caught with their pants down when the game went into extra innings.
