You know, I kind of thought the same thing after taking Walter Johnson. I remember reading somewhere that he was a good guy who was actually afraid of hitting batters with his fastball (which Ty Cobb reportedly would take full advantage of by crowding the plate when he faced him), so I figured getting a couple of nasties like Gibson and The Big Unit would even things out.
