If Jordan wants to leave because of problems with management, then shame on the front office for not repaying him for all he has done for that franchise.—Rob Del Muro, Greenlawn, N.Y.

Flawless Gibson
While I agree that Juan Marichal was a great pitcher the comment by Keith Olbermann in INSIDE BASEBAL (May II) that he was better in the clutch than Bob Gibson (left) is not supported by the facts. Olbermann says that Marichal was a clutch performer during the mid-1960s, when the Giants were World Series runners-up five years in a row. In two of those five years the Cardinals won and Gibson's overall Series performance was nearly flawless: He completed eight of nine starts, pitched 81 innings while striking out 92 batters and allowing only 55 hits, and had a 1.89 ERA.
