Pedro or Gibson

This debate came about in another thread. So my question is when it's all said and done, who will be known as the more dominant pitcher?

Since Pedros still playing, its hard to evaluate careers. We dont know if the remainder of Pedros career, his numbers rise, decline, or remain the same. There is no question however, that Pedros peak years, his best 3, blow Gibsons away. Thats really not debatable. Career wise is open to debate due to Gibsons 2,000 lead in innings, and the uncertainty of Pedros final numbers.

Pedro had arguably be best season ever by a pitcher but the last few years he has been to frail. If you are talking about who had the most dominant season then it is Pedro but career-wise you are going to have to wait unit Pedro in done to make that decision.

btw - If I had to pick one pitcher for game 7 of the WS, I'm taking Gibson. No question.

I think gibson wins hands down actually. For one durability comes into play Pedro pitched 241 innings once in his career gibson beat that 9 times in his career topping out at 314 innings. Pedro had arguably one of the best seasons ever but gibson once went 22-9 pitched 300+ innings stuck out 268 had 13 shutouts and a 1.12 era and 28 complete games (in the same season). Pedro doesn't come close to touching any of that.
