I'm 33, but my dad still says, if his life depended on a pitcher getting a guy out, he would pick Bob Gibson, in his prime.

Edit: somebody beat me to the punch while I was typing...

Your dad like my dad would probably say Koufax was the best lefthander of alltime.

I did mean lowered the mound too.
