And the aforementioned Nick Markakis was seriously considered as a pitcher.
Come on Yankees, let him pitch the next mop up game
Gibson the best athlete among pitchers? I don't think so. I remember Gene Conley and he was a good pitcher and a Boston Celtic. That sound pretty athletic to me.
a nickname for me would be like “The Bearded Bastard” or “The Doctor of Decimal Points” or something.

A whole bunch of major leaguers were ace pitchers and star position players even in college. It does surprise me that more don't do both at the big league level. Why not, given all the pitch count carefulness and injuries?
I think it's possible that there could be Brooks Kieschnick types who can both hit ok and pitch ok... but it would take such an incredible amount of raw talent to be both an outstanding major-league hitter and an outstanding major-league pitcher without devoting oneself full-time to either pursuit...
