You'll notice that Koufax had only 6 years in which he was a pitcher. Before that he was just a thrower with incredible speed and stuff but no control. In his prime he was unbelievable.

But he wasn't Sandy Koufax then. During those years that K pointed out, as they say, fucking wow. Like Guy Lafleur's 12 years with Montreal 3-6-3. Look at the 6, no one better. Look at the 12, just your ordinary superstar.

The biggest difference here is that Koufax had maybe the greatest peak in MLB history in regards to pitching.

I know it's irrelevant but I actually saw Koufax pitch from 1955 (as a rookie with the Brooklyn Dodgers) till he retired because of an arthritic elbow.

In the least insulting way possible, I am shocked there is someone on this site who was alive in 1955. Not sure if because of agism or because I don't expect anyone who frequents this place to live past 50.

I may have told you this before, but who cares, I used to bus into Montreal for work everyday, and I'd see a guy I knew now and then and we'd talk sports. I was arguing about how great a CF'er Andre Dwason was. This guy was about 10 years older than me, he said, 'you know I grew up in NY in the 50"s ? I saw Mantle,Mays and the Duke play.'

His standards were probably different than mine.

His best friend growing up was the son of the traveling secretary for the Brooklyn Dodgers so they would take the train in all the time to Ebbets Field to watch them play. He was a progressive man apparently, Jackie Robinson was his favorite player growing up, I was shocked to hear him say that back in the day knowing about the times.


I've always wondered about how Jackie Robinson could break the color barrier in Montreal the year before moving to Brooklyn, but the NHL waited 7 more years. Obviously there were a hundred times more baseball candidates, but there were NHL calibre players of color in the Quebec senior league in the late 40's.

I saw him live a few times. When Gibson pitched you didn't worry about catching the last bus, a 2 hour game seemed average for him. McCarver would never dream of going to the mound unless summoned.

Apparently they're talking about trying to speed up games, especially the later innings where pitching changes can really slow things down.

I have an idea I'd like to bounce around with you guys.

Once an inning starts the defending team would have only one "free" pitching change. If any of their pitchers complete at-bats with 3 opposing hitters then the pitching team would receive one "earned" pitching change.

This would change the calculus for pitching changes. Managers would want to wait until they've earned a change, if they can. Otherwise you've got no safety net. For example, if you're thinking of pulling the inning-starting pitcher after two batters then the replacement pitcher is stuck in there for three batters, regardless of how crappy the reliever happens to be pitching. So maybe it's better to just let the pitcher pitch to the third batter.
