DeGrom Extends Scoreless Streak, Mets Continue To Excite and Impress

What can anyone say about Jacob deGrom that we haven’t read or heard a thousand times already? Shall I tell you that he’s a grinder who pitches fearlessly no matter who’s digging in at the plate? Shades of Bob Gibson and Pedro Martinez. Fearless. Or that he’s always thinking and making adjustments as the game goes on and that the deGrom who finishes the game is better than...

Lynn Joins Gibson, Dean in First-Half Win Success

The Indiana native joined Adam Wainwright...

‘Evening With Bob Gibson’: A Cardinals Cash Grab?

Moments ago, an e-mail came through to the Cards Diaspora inbox with the subject: “An Evening With Bob Gibson”. Gibby? One of the all time greats? We’d like to have an evening with Bob Gibson. Turns out it wasn’t some super-awesome thank you from the Cardinals for our years of hard blogging. But instead an opportunity to spend a few hundred dollars at Busch Stadium when baseball...

Cueto says he's baseball's best pitcher right now

CINCINNATI -- An announcer once said of Bob Gibson, "He is the luckiest pitcher in the world. Every time he pitches the other team doesn't score any runs." So that must make Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto the modern day Bob Gibson. Make that Lucky Johnny Cueto, because when he pitches the other team doesn't score any runs. Well, they don't score more than two runs, that's for...

Lynn’s Milwaukee gem in historical context

Watching Monday night’s series opener in Milwaukee, one could never have guessed that the Brewers were off to their best start since 1987 while riding a nine-game winning streak. St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn surely did not care. Mixing an effective slider with a fastball that topped out at 95 mph, Lynn held the home team offense to just three hits over seven...

For The Mets, Pitching Is The Name Of The Game

The past two seasons have been dubbed “The Year(s) Of The Pitcher.” This is a retread of the label first trotted out in 1968, in response to record-shattering mound performances by the likes of Bob Gibson, Denny McLain and fine years by several other hurlers, including our own Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman. At that time, a more apt title would have been “The Year Of The Infield...
