His ability to manipulate a few inches on the plate for Maddux and Glavine was huge key to their success. He was famous for getting thrown out arguing the pitch 2 inches outside, getting thrown out, and then having everything within 6 inches be called for strikes the rest of the game.
HOF'er for sure.
