    Re: Who would you pick?

    Who's in your fave 5?

    1) Jojo- our version of Matt Holiday; a monster at home (reds/mariners) and all star level everywhere else
    2) DougDirt- Basically Homer Bailey. Phenomenal in the minors but gets roughed up a touch in the majors
    3) WestofYou- Every team needs a coach that watched pre WWII baseball and can back up almost any statement made with an obscure article from a 1968 newspaper from Omaha. (a la Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting)
    4) Mth123- He is a version of Greg Maddux. Except where he aged and slowly saw his numbers drop he remains on his Cy Young form.
    5) FallsCityBeer- The amount of pessimism that exudes from his body is rivaled only by Baseclogger and Highlifeman21 (better? everyone stay calm, deep breaths, inhale, exhale, now that must feel better) . He will be able to bring down any opponent's argument in under 3 lines on a post. Basically he is Mariano Rivera

    Pick 5 guys for a imaginary battle of the boards. I chose 5 and jokingly listed a reason for each.

    Calm down little buddy

    The concern is a joke like that could shut down an interesting thread...

    Re: Who would you pick?

    I think that someone should compose a comprehensive baseball knowledge test and include a few questions that would require putting the knowledge into specific situations. This is a tough task and I am personally not willing or able to make such a test, but it is still an idea. I mean how did all great inventions start? With an idea
    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.

    Bingo.

    See, *BaseClogger* gets it.

    It's always a shame when interesting/engaging threads go the way of the dodo b/c someone had to take a political cheap shot....



    As an aside, these refs are HORRIBLE in the MNF Niners @ Cardinals...

    Hmmm, I can't let others go to battle without me. So as long as I don't have to argue against any of these guys....

    Re: Who would you pick?

    Only five? That's tough, but I'll take a stab at it.

    Yachtzee - knows at least two languages; likes Devo; good sense of humor; handy in case of legal problems
    RedsManRick - very informed, motivated, and passionate; his posts are well-thought out and articulate
    FallsCityBeer - won't bend on anything; he knows he's right, regardless of how right/wrong he is; will out-last any opponent
    KittyDuran - everyone loves free stuff
    camisadelgolf - he brings beer wherever he goes; exceptional grammar and spelling (despite the frequent alcohol poisoning); likes to talk in third person

    Honorable mentions:
    westofyou - tends to start the more interesting threads, even if people don't always post much in them
    BCubb2003 - his 'random thoughts' are always classic (but should post more)
    Matt700wlw - has the ability to reach a large audience; nice guy
    RedsMetz - open mind; plays a perfect devil's advocate; great at encouraging a more fluid discussion
    Boss-Hog - we need someone to help keep things civil; also handy in the case of bandwith problems

    Is the question who's the best for general baseball knowledge, or who would be best for general baseball discussions/agruments? Seems to me those are two different skilz.

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    Re: Who would you pick?

    Any list without me is a good list. I'd go with:

    woy
    M2
    SteelSD
    princeton
    Raisor

    I covered snark, snide, history, stats and common sense.
