    How's this for "mental masturbation":

    Votto = Will Clark

    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.

    Please. Chuck Norris would kill both Tebow and Superman at the exact same time with his big toes.

    I would say more like Bruce= Mr Rodgers

    Johnny Cueto = Jose Rijo

    I'm pulling that one out of you-know-where, but they're both known for great sliders, right?

    But the Bruce comparison to Chuck Norris was okay, right?

    Well had we known there was sarcasm there, it would have been almost as good as the Chuck Norris one.

    By the way, the Bailey = Van Poppel comparison was way better than so I disagree.

    Don't worry, I'll spell it out for you in advance next time Doug.

    In the future, though, I would suggest that if someone has an issue or question regarding something that they might disagree with or misunderstand - to avoid, with all their power, quoting a post and responding with just a rolling eyes emoticon.

    It makes it hard to take that poster seriously and it's quite rude to your fellow poster. I think many of us on here have earned the benefit of the doubt and don't deserve to be treated that way.

    I am very bad at picking up sarcasm and I guess lately there have been lots of anti Bailey types of things going around so I probably took it the wrong way because of that.

    Cinderella Man is on TNT currently, so I am going back to watching that.... I suggest the rest of you also turn it on. Great movie.

    Have you ever looked at Larry Walker's stats. His career .9654 OPS is 20th all-time in baseball. He has an MVP, 7 GG, 5 AS, 3 SS. He averaged 110/31/107 per 162 games. So your saying that the only way to not be disappointed would be for Bruce to not make the HOF, since Walker is a borderline HOF player.
