    Can you cite a single article that backs you up on any of this? This all seems like nothing more than a bitter partisan rant by a far right winger.

    I agree. I made this post a week or two ago and multiple right-wing posters claimed I was being biased.

    But let's be real here. How can someone genuinely claim that passing this bill is against...

    When's the last time you made a post that didn't bash the Democrats? You bash them when they do what you want, you bash them when they do what you don't want and you bash them when they don't do...

    This guy's a clown. First of all, this is a traditional Republican seat. Even without this controversy, he probably would have lost it. Second of all, he should take responsibility for his own...

    Thank you. I don't mean to overstep my bounds, I'm obviously not a mod but I'm just looking out for the better interests of most of the posters here. I know sometimes it takes a third party to...
  6. Could you two please cut it out and get back to...

    Could you two please cut it out and get back to the topic of the thread? One of you is being more of an ### than the other, but this isn't kindergarten. We should be able to move on rather than...

    Beckett certainly has the talent to be a Cy Young caliber pitcher but the problem is that he lacks consistency. Pretty much every year, he puts up a couple of months that are stinkers.

    2009 -...

    To be honest, I didn't read the Youk comment. Once I saw you comparing him to David Ortiz, I stopped reading because the production of David Ortiz isn't at all relavent to the production of John...
  9. Again, not a fair comparison. Ortiz is a 34 year...

    Again, not a fair comparison. Ortiz is a 34 year old who has shown significant decline. Lackey is a 31 year old still in the prime of his career.
  10. Because it's being compared to another pitcher's...

    Because it's being compared to another pitcher's career worst year and another year in which he was hurt. I think we'll have to see how they do this year because their career numbers are very similar.

    Yeah, all you gotta do is take out July, August, September and October of 2004, his 2006 season and his 2008 season and he's been a good pitcher in the American League :D

    I've actually heard that from quite a few Yankees fans on message boards. They all say something along the lines of Burnett doesn't throw the fastball as much as he used to or Burnett rely on the...

    I don't think they're underrating Burnett as much as they're overrating Vazquez. Burnett's had an ERA over 4 each of the last two years and has been injury prone the vast majority of his career.

    Let's not get carried away now. Beckett isn't Pedro, he's not going to have a 2.48 ERA.
  15. Not a very fair comparison considering it...

    Not a very fair comparison considering it includes Lackey's career worst year and Beckett's three best years. Plus, Lackey was dealing with injuries the last two years but he's usually a horse. He's...
  16. With all things considered (quality of his...

    With all things considered (quality of his pitching, how many innings he made, defense behind him) I agree that 2009 was his second best year. And he's posted the best 3 WAR's of his career the last...
  17. I don't think most of these guys are picked up on...

    I don't think most of these guys are picked up on the battle field, or are caught actively trying to kill our troops though. It's not like they stand in the street shooting guns at U.S. soldiers.
  18. Is Beckett really well above Lackey in terms of...

    Is Beckett really well above Lackey in terms of talent? His career ERA is only 0.03 points better and he had the benefit of pitching 5 years in the National League.
  19. Not without a shoulder clause in his contract he...

    Not without a shoulder clause in his contract he isn't. 35 year old pitchers with previous shoulder issues don't have a very good track record. At least the ones that weren't pumped full of steroids.

    You do know that Gardenhire is the player manager of the Twins, not the GM, right?

    Yeah, the best part is that the first reason listed for Cashman being ranked #3 is that he has 4 World Series rings, even though he pretty much inherited the team in 1998 than won 3 of them and it...

    I think it will be important for the Red Sox to secure a shoulder clause if they're going to sign Beckett to an extension. From the language used about his shoulder in the past, I'm not so confident...

    I have a hard time believing that Javier Vazquez, who couldn't keep his ERA below 4.50 over 4 years in the AL Central is a top 3 pitcher in the American League. Toto, I don't think we're in Atlanta...

    You guys realize that there's like a 90% chance that the Red Sox will be in the top 5 in MLB in runs scored right? You're acting like they're going to be in the bottom of the league in runs scored...

    It's not really all that interesting an argument. The Red Sox won 95 games in the best division of the best league in baseball. The Phillies won 93 games in the NL East and 15 of their wins came...
