re: We'll be hearing a bunch of eligible calls this year! - STEVED00
I think we see the OT eligible a lot this season (like we did in '09). Personally I hope the OT eligible is Armstead just to see the fear in the eyes of the DB/LB who has to take him on when he comes in motion to lead block. ...

"The Wolverine" and the X-Men timeline?? Spoilers * - STEVED00
Finally got around to watching The Wolverine a couple nights ago. Obviously the end ties into days of Furtures Past but the whole Jean Gray storyline has me confused. Is Logan having these dreams bc he killed Jean in XMen 3? Is Jean a figment of his imagination or is she kind of "haunting" him? ...

[quote] I'm not defending Rose as a HOFer bc I don't think he should be in, but the whole stats argument an that he was just an OK player is bull.[/quote] Where did I say he was just OK? I said he was a very good player who played at a high level for a long time. I agree my standard of great...

re: If Pete Rose Only Bet On His Own Team - STEVED00
Baseball has always rewarded longevity. Compare Rose's best 6-8yrs to a guy like Albert Belle's besr 6-8 yrs then Belle would clearly come out ahead in all categories other than # of hits. Difference is that Rose was really good for prob 12 years and good for another 8. ...

re: If Pete Rose Only Bet On His Own Team - STEVED00
I would definitely say he wasn't in the top 5 all time in any of the positions he played (maybe not even in the top ten). Baseball is big on career quantity though. He played for a really long time at a high level and stayed very healthy. ...

re: If Pete Rose Only Bet On His Own Team - STEVED00
Not arguing anything. I said Pete Rose is not an all time great. I think his notoriety creates sort of a legendary figure. He is a mid tier HOFr based on his on field performance. IMO, the fact that he is shady as frock is enough for me to be ok with him never be in the HOF. ...

[quote]quote: In a 162 game season, sometimes managers make decisions not for the game they are currently playing, but for the upcoming games, as well. For instance, if you bring 3/4 your bullpen into today's game to try and win, you may not have enough pitching to make it through the weekend. ...

re: If Pete Rose Only Bet On His Own Team - STEVED00
The Legend of Pete Rose far surpasses the actual player Pete Rose. Let's be honest, Pete was a very good but not great player. Sure he is the career hits leader but he did it over 23 seasons. He played power positions (1st,3b,OF) with avg to below avg power and few SBs. he was an avg defender. ...
