Game 6 Will Never Die. John McNamara: "It was true in 1986 and it is true today. He walked off the mound in the seventh inning and said, 'That's all I can pitch.' Too many people heard him say it. Bill Fischer, the pitching coach. The trainers, and other people. Some players came up to me and said, 'Do you need any help in this? We know what happened.' Why he won't admit it, I have no idea. I have a lot of respect for what he's done over the years, but I don't have a lot of respect for him as a person for not admitting what the hell happened. If he wants to go to war over that, I've got a lot of ammunition."
