    Left-handed pitcher, BlueSky?

    Why not make him ambidextrous?
    You know I thought about this. That ambidextrous Vanderbilt pitcher is in the Mets system is he not?

    You might be cool, but you're not ambidextrous big league pitcher who inspired Ladies Day cool! The Count probably had furry dice hanging from the top of his horse-drawn wagon!!

    I'll take Steve Dalkowski's heater, in that brief period of time after Earl Weaver tamed him and before he hurt himself.

    He had it all in one package. I don't know about 7th best or whatever I just know that if you want to be a pitcher you could do far worse then to emulate him. We remember Ryans tough days with the lousy Angel teams but Seaver pitched some great ball with teams that had a lineup of Bud Harrelson, Warning track Wayne Garrett and a host of other Banjo hitters. I remember seeing the Big Red Machine guys going 15-5 and 14-5 etc and thinking Seaver was one year I think 16-14 with an era of 2.10 or close to it. Put Seaver in Cincy 5 years earlier and he'd have knocked on 375 wins.

    But if he's no better than the seventh best pitcher, why would you choose him :noidea

    Or Mark Fidrych's conversations with the baseball?
