Gibson wonders if he suffered
a heart attack during
dominant ´68 season

Saint Louis post Dispatch, by Rick Hummel

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 1/12/2018 10:19:51 AM

Fifty years ago — really, has it been that long? — Cardinals Hall of Fame righthander Bob Gibson sashayed through the National League with a 22-9 record, 13 shutouts, 28 complete games, 268 strikeouts and a mind-numbing 1.12 earned-run average, best in the modern era. But it wasn’t that easy. “There was pressure all year,” said Gibson, who especially will be honored Sunday night among other Cardinals greats of the past 60 years at the annual St. Louis Baseball Writers’ dinner at Union Station Hotel. “I have them right now, but I think I developed ulcers then. I had a lot of

He was the best I ever saw. Almost always went the distance and his games usually ended in 2 hours or less. Almost superhuman in these days of 6 innings and call in relievers. What would a pitcher of Bob Gibson´s talent be worth today? It boggles the mind.

Gibson and Drysdale were two of the meanist pitchers in baseball history. I think one of them threw at a player in the on-deck circle because he thought the player was "timing" his pitches.

Nowadays, pitchers who throw inside to a batter get warned by the umps and face ejection and batters routinely charge the mound.

Both Gibson and Drysdale would challenge the batters to go ahead and make his day, so to speak, by charging the mound. Few did.

Left unsaid is that amphetamines - ´greenies´ - were openly provided and consumed in clubhouses. They were even put out on tables in bowls like M&Ms.

None of that is to suggest Gibson used amphetamines but uppers will certainly cause heart arrhythmia and worse especially in those predisposed to such things.

There´s a reason players of the late 60s through the early 80s didn´t fear the tight double-knit uniforms with their pullover jerseys and beltless pants. They were skinny as rails and often had ´help.´

Gibson got only 3.03 runs average from his teammates in 1968? That makes his record all the more intimidating. That´s what kept him from 30+ wins (and why he had 9 losses). There is no question that Bob Gibson is one of the greatest pitchers in the history of MLB. (I remember him well.) His ´68 season ERA (1.12) might never be bettered.

As I recall a lot of attention that year was justifiably devoted to Denny McLain, whose won-loss record of 31-4 also won´t be topped in our lifetimes. (McLain´s ´68 Tigers scored considerably more runs than Gibson´s Cardinals during that season.) In a sense McLain sucked a bit of oxygen out of Gibson´s singular season. (Detroit also beat St. Louis 4 games to 3 in the ´68 World Series, the final insult from the Cardinals´ point of view.) Baseball is a great sport, my favorite among the Big Three.

I got a big smile from the second replier´s reference to Gibson and Drysdale´s meanness on the mound. They were indeed, but in a good way. Their busts are also ensconced forever in Cooperstown.

If I was setting up a starting rotation for all-time, Bob Gibson would be my number one starter. Dominance, coupled with a all out junk yard dog mentality. Can´t quite comprehend a 1.12 ERA in ´68 and still lost 9 games.

My other four starters would be Sandy Koufax, Jim Palmer, Roger Clemens and Mickey Lolich.

Lolich was a workhorse and his performance in the 1968 World Series is reason alone.

FWIW, #4, Detroit´s Mickey Lolich was the star of the ´68 WS.

As for Gibson, he was at least as mean off the mound and heart attacks and ulcers hardly define "sashaying". I´d expect no less from the St. Louis Post-Disgrace and a city that loves its baseball way too much. Living among Cardinals fans for decades has pretty much ruined the game for me, they´re relentless and obsessed to a huge fault.

I know, all fans can be that way, here´s a story. Late ´80´s, Cards and Mets have been at each others´ throats for some years. Late season at Busch Stadium, the Mets are in town for a pivotal series. I´m in the press box, so are a bunch of hard-boiled, utterly jaded NY sports journos. They all have dazed looks, one says to another "What´s wrong with these people?!"

Indeed.

The photo is interesting. Notice that Cash is not ready to bat. Perhaps he intended to bunt? Or had he already swung and hit the ball?

Or was it personal? Was Gibson throwing at his head?

Could be, #9. Gibson was a beast. Bill White, I think it was, once said Gibson apologized after hitting him in the neck during a game. Bill told him, "That´s alright, I know you didn´t mean to hit me."

Gibson replied, "I meant to hit you, just not in the neck."

President Trump is shrinking the size and scope of the federal government.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values.

Arizona Senate Primary Battle Officially Kicks Off

The Arizona Senate primary officially kicked off Friday, and it’s going to be a battle — with war planes and all. Republican Rep. Martha McSally launched her Senate run at the Tucson Jet Center on Friday morning and will travel to other areas of the state later in the day. She donned a blue flight suit to fly in a World War II-era AT-6 trainer to Phoenix, and then to Prescott. McSally, of course, is piloting the plane herself. “Fly, fight and win. That’s our plan,” said McSally, a second-term congresswoman and the first female pilot to fly in combat.

Republicans hoping to hold on to the Arizona Senate seat currently held by Sen. Jeff Flake (R) face an increasingly tumultuous primary environment, with firebrand former sheriff Joe Arpaio entering the race from the right and Rep. Martha McSally trying to win over President Trump’s supporters without alienating more moderate general election voters. The Tuesday announcement from Arpaio, whose criminal contempt conviction Trump pardoned last year, came just days before McSally joined the primary. While Arpaio made his name as an immigration hard-liner and promoter of the discredited conspiracy theory that former President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, McSally

Federal prosecutors have long insisted the goal of a fraud scheme at Pilot Flying J was to boost the truck stop giant’s profit and market share, and this week they served up numbers to try to prove it. Jurors in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga this week heard testimony and saw financial records showing that Pilot Flying J’s margin on diesel fuel sales, the number of truck stops it controlled and the amount of diesel fuel it sold all grew substantially during the time of the fraud at issue in the ongoing trial of the firm’s former president and three subordinates.

It would rank as one of the greatest political upsets of 2018 and a stunning rebuke to Trumpism: a gay Latina Democrat grabbing hold of the country’s biggest red state. But is Texas ready for Lupe Valdez? The question was first posed in Dallas in 2004, when Valdez scored a surprise victory to become the nation’s first openly gay female Hispanic sheriff on the same night that George W Bush secured a second term in the White House. She won re-election three times in Dallas county before announcing last month that she would resign to stand for Texas governor. Born in San Antonio,

Gone are the days of a slouched, conciliatory, giggling and limp-wristed Barack Obama who for eight years preened and pranced his way into what was the warm embrace of the Davos elites. Mr. Obama was a thing of their own making, a caricature born deep within the disease-riddled bowels of anti-Americanism that run rampant throughout universities, Hollywood, and institutions like the United Nations. Their collective imaginings inseminated a concept and after a gestation of decades, shat Obama out. They marveled at how you really can polish a t##d and sell ice to Eskimos.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
