  1. Huh...perhaps beaming it out psychically was enough. Such a thing could be profitable at Foxwoods. We should investigate further.I think I've absent mostly because of work. It's been pretty crazy. They keep sending me to Kentucky right near Ohio. I'll be there all next week, so I'll be disappearing again. The good thing is that I'm going to catch a million Reds games by the time it's all over. I already caught them against the Mets. It's weird to walk up to the ticket office on game day and get my choice of seats for dirt cheap. Of course, I had to spend hours watching Mike Pelfrey fail to fin
  2. Hey guys....what's up? I'm digging the team. Lotsa depth. Tonsa bullpen.
  3. He has had 5 seasons of 4.40+ ERA, but in 2 of those seasons he managed to still have an ERA better than league average. For those two seasons, he was an All-Star in one and finished 5th in the Cy Young in the other. The other three aren't horrible seasons and they've come at the end of his career in his decline phase. You can find many Hall of Famers with similar results. I'll cherry-pick a fewCatfish Hunter - 7 of 15 seasons with a below league average ERA (note: being better than Catfish is not a good argument for inclusion in the Hall)Don Sutton - 8.5 seasons with a sub-100 ERA+, Cy Young
  4. 3.68 ERA vs. a league average of 4.51. 18 years and 3500 innings of a 123 ERA+ is nothing to shake a stick at. In fact, that's precisely Juan Marichal...only Mussina has 23 more wins. Granted, the shape of the career is different, Marichal's a peak guy whereas Mussina's been quite good for a long time, but in terms of total value, they're close. I don't buy the wins thing. 270 wins is more than:Jim PalmerBob FellerCarl HubbellMordecai BrownWhitey Ford...and a bunch of other Hall of Famers. Because I was curious, I looked up Hall of Fame pitchers. There are 62 by my count. 37 of them had less
  5. Mike Mussina strikes me as completely borderline. I have him a notch below Schilling and consider Schilling just barely on the happy side of the dividing line.I think I'd give it to him since he's retiring with something left in the tank and not dragging out the inevitable to pad his stats to reach an arbitrary milestone.
  6. Gywnn, along with Sandberg and Boggs were '83. Very easy to mix '83 and '84 Topps up though - they're very similar. The only other rookies from '84 (base sets) are Strawberry and Van Slyke (and Joe Carter for Donruss), which were a lot more exciting in 1988 than 2008.
  7. I like the trade personally. The important thing to remember is that this move can't be viewed in a vacuum. This is the precursor to whatever comes next. We've got 5 million more to play with and another live bullpen arm to cover for say, Masterson's departure whether that's to go to the rotation or be moved for a catcher. Coco was a good 4th outfielder, but I'd prefer a corner/1B type. Our two biggest injury risks are Drew and Lowell. If we get that corner guy, no one has to play out of position. My biggest hope is that they give new Ramirez old Ramirez's number 24. 1 million jerseys will sud
  8. Indeed....fan voting at mlb.com. Yikes.
  9. I dig the Youkilis love, but my homer mojo is going to Pedroia.Agreed on Aviles though (as well as the rest).
  10. I know what this thread needs....Ahhh....perfect
  11. Heartbreak's a little over the top. We were beat by a good team. Still a successful year. Won a playoff series, almost won a second after an improbable turnaround. It was fun. Let's do it again next year.....really kick up a Rays-Sox rivalry into high gear.
  12. Man, I hope so. If you're going to pull out the game where you were 99.4% to lose, you might as well finish the job....even if it does give the Rays all sorts of focus and determination for next year.
