The question I've always had was why would Eckersley throw Gibson an off speed pitch when the guy could barely walk to the plate? Throw him the heat! Has to go down as one of the dumbest calls in sports history. You clearly have a wounded opponent so you make it easy on him by throwing him something he can catch up to?
