"Up until I got hurt, I was having a pretty healthy season."

That wasn't McCarver(it was Jamie Moyer) but it seems to fit the theme of the thread.

Tim McCraver when catching Bob Gibson

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter; that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

From all the stories I've read, sounded like Gibson thought he was a chump, actually.
