Vintage Maddux? I didn’t watch enough of Greg Maddux during his prime, but I can’t imgaine him (or anyone else) pitching much better than he did on Monday night against the Reds (recap | box score). How good was The Professor? According to the U-T, Jake Peavy, who charted the game, said that Maddux “missed [...]
