re: 25 years of Baseball HOF predictions by Bill James in 1994 - Bench McElroy
[quote]It took that long for Carlton Fisk to get in? [/quote] It was actually mentioned in the piece that it's virtually impossible for catchers to get in on the first ballot. Johnny Bench is still the only catcher to ever be elected in the first ballot. Even Yogi Berra didn't get in until his s...

25 years of Baseball HOF predictions by Bill James in 1994 - Bench McElroy
[quote]1995 Bill’s prediction: Mike Schmidt and Jim Rice Actual: Mike Schmidt Interesting that Bill thought Jim Rice would sail into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. He did not — Rice got less than 30 percent of the vote that first year, and his Hall of Fame election turned out to be a l...

Football Study Hall: Which CFB coaches consistently overachieve or underachieve? - Bench McElroy
[quote]Last offseason, I tinkered with a measure called second-order wins. It is basically my version of the Pythagorean Wins concept, where you look at a certain component (usually points or runs scored and allowed) and determine what a team's record probably should be as opposed to what it actuall...

Dabo Swinney gives passionate defense of what football provides in communities - Bench McElroy
[quote]“I think the game’s never been better. I think there’s an agenda. When North Korea gets the nuclear bomb, it’s going to be football’s fault. We’re in a culture that everything is football, and it’s because football has the stage. I don’t care what people’s agenda is, yes, we’ve got to improve...

re: Does Pete Rose belong in the HOF? - Bench McElroy
Imagine if Les Miles was a serial gambler, was accused of betting on LSU games, lied about it for 15+ years, admitted to betting on LSU games later on to sell a book, and showed zero contrition or remorse for his actions. I bet the reaction from LSU fans saying Rose deserves to be in the HOF would b...

re: Should the MLB expand their playoffs to more teams? - Bench McElroy
[quote]If you aren't one of the top 5 teams in your league after a 162 game season you have absolutely no business making the playoffs.[/quote] I would actually prefer if baseball goes back to the balanced schedule they had in the '90s and just have the teams with the four best records in each le...

re: Who had the best peak between A-Rod, Bond and Griffey Jr - Bench McElroy
Griffey vs. Bonds was the Kobe vs. Lebron of the '90s. Griffey was the more popular and entertaining player similar to how NBA fans view Kobe but Bonds was always the better player by a significant margin. Griffey was considered a superior slugger and better hitter for average yet their batting aver...

re: How much future misery would you trade for a championship? - Bench McElroy
None and it's not even a debate for me. I've been a fan of teams who won multiple championships over a short period of time and teams who went 10+ years without a winning season. The feeling of misery rooting for a perennially bad team is far more intense than the great joy of rooting for a team th...

re: Rob Manfred, MLBPA have discussed 154 game season - Bench McElroy
I know it will never happen in a million years but I always wanted baseball to have a round-robin 174 game schedule with every team playing each other six times. Have the two teams with the best overall record play each other in the World Series. It would be the best way of determining a champion in...
