Bob Gibson's season
« on: February 21, 2008, 08:41:34 PM »
Forty years ago!!

One of the greatest pitching seasons ever. Bob Gibson was so dominating that he allowed zero runs or one run 24 times in 34 starts! think about it.

His era was 1.12, an unbelievable number.

Yes!, that 1.12 is underappreciated. It should be as well known as 715.

Being the old fart that I am I recall that season.  One of the greatest feats ever for any sport.  Bob had a mean streak so not many dug in real deep against him if you get my drift.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg
