John Smoltz On Tony Gwynn

John Smoltz showed a wonderful statistic regarding Tony Gwynn during last night’s All-Star Game.  Gwynn dominated the Braves’s HOF trio of Smoltz, Maddux and Glavine.

  • Smoltz: 30-65 (.462) 2 HR
  • Maddux: 39-91 (.491) 0 HR
  • Glavine: 29-93 (.312) 2 HR

I guess that says it all!

Greg Maddux on Tony Gwynn

H/T William Wallace:

Greg Maddux, one of the finest pitchers of his generation, told the Washington Post earlier this year that he was convinced no hitter could accurately differentiate between the speed of specific pitches, comparing it to attempting to gauge the speed of a car a quarter-mile away.

“You just can’t do it,” Maddux told The Post. “Except … for that [expletive] Tony Gwynn.”
