George Brett - I love reading about some of his impressive stats. Here are a few.
--Brett's 1980 batting average of .390 is second only to Tony Gwynn's 1994 average of .394 (Gwynn played in 110 games and had 419 at-bats in the strike-shortened season, compared to Brett's 449 at bats in 1980) for...

| O-T Lounge|| Lawn Mower Recommendation - RedHawk on 6/26/14 at 2:30 pm|
My 15 year Craftsman mower went kaput last week and need a new one. My yard isn't that big, but it is a bit thick with bermuda grass.
Was leaning towards the Troy Bilt with 160 CC Honda motor for $249 at Lowes. But they also have a Husqvarna with front wheel drive and same motor for $329.
