Well, you know what the problem is - you need to serve better coffee in your kitchen!"

I see we have a few crossover posters from BBTF.

Richard is my middle name, by the way, so maybe we should figure out who the best all-time Richard is? -- and would J.R. count?

I actually cant think of any others who went by "Richard", and i dont want to settle for Dick Allen! -- or Rick Honeycutt, or Rick Manning...

You don't have to call me mister, we're all friends here.

Of course the '60 game ended with Mazeroski's blast and you probably knew the '62 game ended with McCovey's line drive too, but i'll mention that anyway.

Which of the above pitchers (John's complete list at top) lost a heartbreaking sudden death playoff game one year, then later won an almost-as-dramatic sudden death playoff game?

(Hint, which may make it too easy, but what the heck: the win was a 4-hit shutout to boot)

And sheesh, i shouldve at least known Gibson too. I guess one of us should do the research before i award the prize, but what kind of retractable dome would you prefer -- sliding shield or fan/clamshell type? Taxpayer financed or privately funded?
