Jim Palmer and Pete Sampras (comparison in artistry)
I believe Pete Sampras is alike with the famouse pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles in their careers, their style, and their situations. Here is a quote from Ray Miller, the pitching coach of Palmer's.
"(Jim) Palmer is the greatest 'situation' pitcher I've ever seen. He makes them beat him on a single and one run at a time. Most of the homers he gives up are solos because he only works to their power when the bases are empty."
I think of Pete Sampras the same way.
