He didn't have the power to blow you away, but he was an absolute genius, and had the accuracy of a sniper.
Was always convinced you could place a strike-anywhere match on a stand at home plate, and Maddux could throw a pitch and light it.
His back door pitches were ridiculous. I've seen so many hitters take strike 3 looking at a pitch that seemed outside, but at the last second would catch the plate.
