- Comparison of Greg Maddux and other pitchers
- Debunking the lazy comparison of non-fireballer pitchers to Greg Maddux
- Highlighting the uniqueness and excellence of Greg Maddux
Greg Maddux comparisons have become a lazy habit among commentators when it comes to starting pitchers who aren’t fireballers. This trend is not only unfair to the Hall of Famer but also to the new pitcher. Kyle Hendricks has often been compared to Maddux, but the comparison is intellectually offensive. Maddux’s career stats dwarf those of Hendricks. Maddux was a finesse pitcher with unrivaled control and workhorse abilities and any comparison from today’s game just doesn’t hold up. Maddux was a unique talent and it’s time to break the habit of comparing pitchers to him.
