Baseball Told the Right WayIn-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!
Today I got to watch one of those increasingly rare performances by Greg Maddux, which reminds me why he is one of the greatest pitchers ever. He's always been one of my favorites, and today he was in a groove, tossing a complete game 6-hit shutout in vintage-1995, 103 pitch efficiency.
The Cubs amazingly scored some runs and gave The Professor his 297th win. My question, why is this getting no press? I bet nobody ever expected me, of all people, to complain about an east-coast media bias, but how much publicity surrounded Clemens when he was going for #300 last year? Will somebody go wake up the ESPN cartel and tell 'em to fire up the hype machine. Apparently they are too busy talking about the Lakers and imitating VH1 countdown specials to cover real sports.
It's a shame that 20 years from now Greg Maddux will probablly still be in the shadow of Clemens. Clemens really has only been slightly better, and Maddux's peak years were much more impressive. Plus I like Maddux more. That ought to count for something.
