    That was excatly the first thought I had.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    When I read this, I groaned. Not because I dislike him, but because I remember the way guys I knew reacted to his name when I was 13 or 14, and I figured the reaction on this board would be about the same. Seems I was right. This is worse than Jung Bong. :

    Good choice. Very adaptable and well respected. High hopes for him.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    So far no one has said anything bad, and TC finds some good in the choice. I feel relieved.

    *cough* future podcast interview *cough*
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    This actually gives me a lot of confidence (as well as Tom Servo's wikipedia article). Thanks for that.

    He was also at Baker's side in San Fran. Reported to yell a lot.

    Since 1995:

    Team: Runs Allowed

    1995 SFG- 873 Runs Allowed <projected per 162 games>
    1995 SFG- 862 Runs Allowed
    1997 SFG- 793 Runs Allowed
    1999 ANA- 826 Runs Allowed
    2000 CLE- 816 Runs Allowed
    2001 CLE- 821 Runs Allowed
    2002 MTL- 718 Runs Allowed

    Average: 816 Runs Allowed per Season (5.04 RPG). His 1988-1991 Cubs staffs finished 10th, 6th, 11th, and 11th in the NL when it was a 12-team league.

    Welcome, Dick. You'll fit right in.

    Randy Johnson is probably my favorite name ever, though it's hard to separate him qualitatively from Randy Bush. I've always wanted to know how those two fared when they faced each other.

    It would probably be a push

    If he transforms Homer Bailey to the next Greg Maddux, the Reds nation will be rejoicing.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
