  1. Price was basically the same until he broke out of it in the ALCS/WS last year.
  2. Quite a few Orioles as honorable mentions in that list
  3. This had always been my argument to non-baseball watchers. Outside of football, what other sport do you have so many interesting plays that could happen that you don't see every game? Triple plays, shutout outs, stolen bases, balks, steals of home, bunts singles etc. I don't watch the NBA because I feel like the lack of variation between games becomes monotonous and boring. I feel the three true outcomes style of the current game is making baseball like that. It is killing what makes baseball such an interesting and dynamic sport, the variety. I think this is really hurting the appeal for people.
  4. Can we vote for two seasons? They could a winning season in sequential years.
  5. Waiting to see the long term results of viewership ratings? Casual fans for sure dig the long ball.
  6. The question is then, has Wells made that adjustment already in the minor leagues to compensate for the subpar velocity? It would be a great story if the guy can compete in the majors at his velocity.
  7. I view it as you have 9 positions on the field you have to fill. In a perfect world, you'd be above average at as many possible positions to be a WS contender. If you move a guy off of catcher to like first base, who potentially could be the best in the league for a chunk of his career at catcher, you still need to find another guy be that above average guy at catcher. Unless you consider catcher a dispensable position and rather focus your resources at other positions.
  8. That's actually pretty sad that in 35 years we've never been better than 8th
  9. Guess the Braves didn't get the memo.
  10. I know it is much easier to get AA batters out on underwhelming stuff, but Wells, outside the K numbers is just dominating and is a year younger for the league. There's got to be something there right?
  11. So like once in the 35 year history did the lowest seed even make the finals. And the lowest seed to ever win was a 6th, once. I guess my point is that in the NFL and MLB, wild card teams go on to win the championship quite frequently in comparison. I think by having so many teams in the playoffs that essentially have no chance, it makes the first round relatively pointless.
  12. NBA playoffs is pretty awful too. I mean what's the point of having the first round? When is the last time one of the lowest seeded teams even made the NBA finals? I know none have ever won.
  13. Adam "Pacman" Jones of the Bengals? Not particularly the best role model.
  14. Collectively 91 career between the two. Sign me up. Although we better start GrayRod on a steady diet of fried food and milkshakes right now.
  15. You remind me of the Philly fans during the '10-12' seasons. "Every 5th day is a Halladay"
