[quote]I think if their offense starts clicking then pitching becomes less crucial[/quote]
Yes and no. The offense is good enough to win a lot of games by itself. I just think the bullpen will negate a lot of the positives and with no farm players to help out or trade, I'm not sure how much they ...

I've always said that Dead Space would make an amazing film. But, they would have to create a sense of isolation for Isaac for most of the film for it to work. Almost like Cast Away in space. But with alien zombie things.
And it would be fairly hard to add in the supernatural element without i...

We are arguing semantics here. In the eyes of the MLB, both of these players were involved in a betting scandal. Ergo, these two players are going to be viewed in context together forever, even though they did not do the same exact thing....

Speaking of, Shoeless Joe should be in the HOF. But, if you let him in, you have to let Rose in. I think Rose should be in but more than likely they will wait till he is dead, or a new commissioner wants to make a huge name for himself, which is highly unlikel...

Definitely Louis. He said it was his first screenplay ever to get picked up and they asked him if he wanted to direct. They gave him pretty much no creative control during filming though....

Definitely. I've always been a fan of the quiet superstar like a Dirk or a Gretzky. But it is damn hard to not like a guy like Kobe, someone who puts 100% in all the time and would play injured if they let him, even if he has flaws on and off the court. But who doesn't. ...
