ESPN conducted a poll once where they asked

Hall of Famers Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Jim Palmer, Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton, Bert Blyleven, and Don Sutton who was the best pitcher of their generation. They all agreed.

Tom Seaver.

1. Only the Mets would trade the best pitcher of a generation, never mind the face of a franchise.

8. As an aside. I saw Mike Cuellar pitch for the Astros when

the Astrodome opened in 1965. He played alongside my favorite ballplayer-Joe Morgan.

9. Joe Morgan, later with the "Big, Red Machine." What a team.

Bench, Griffey,Rose, Morgan, Perez, Foster, Geronimo and Concepcion.

All of could swing the lumber. I liked Tony Perez and always wondered how he got the nickname "Doggie"?

4. What about Koufax? Gibson had a record-low era in '67, and then there was McClain's...

30-win season.

6. I once asked Bake McBride, the Rookie the Year in the NL in 1974, who the

toughest pitcher to hit was. Without hesitation he said Seaver. Of course this post Koufax and McClain. These pitchers are mainly talking of the 70s I think.
