            During the Mets game tonight, Keith Hernandez talked about facing him. It was unsettling to hear Keith as impressed with somebody else as he is with Keith.

            I remember watching J.R. pitch at Shea in those gorgeous Taco Bell Rainbow unis.





            He was so freaking good and fun to watch -- in a time before every pitcher was 6-6 he looked about 11 feet tall out there.

            • J.R. Richard is in the "What might have been" Hall Of Fame. He was dominant in ways maybe a handful of other pitchers were. Would have been so nice to see him pitch 10 more years than we got to see. He struck out 600+ batters over two seasons in the late 70s at a time when most hitters loathed striking out and batters with 200 were unheard of. My guess is a guy with his stuff today might routinely strike out 15+ batters in every start and if he managed to throw 200 innings in a season today, he'd strike out 400+ easily.

                              Were they together?

                              I thought Richard retired before Ryan came over.

                              I think of the Astros pitching as being: Richard, Andujar, Dierker, Niekro. Insanely difficult and all completely different.

                                Only the 1980 season, and for that matter, only until July, when Richard went down.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
