His deal ends next year any way
First big league game
He still had quite an impressive career after that (but I didn't nominate him)
He had, after that....3340 innings, 235-142, 138 ERA+, and 72.8 rWAR...and he obviously could have pitched more years...
I am not denying he took, and that it had an affect.
But you can't just look at his home runs totals and say that's steroids. Because it's not.
He also played against expansion, played a half...
Steroids had an affect.
But so did...............expansion!
It's a convenient narrative that people seem to forget.
Imagine if 15% of Miguel Cabrera, Giancarlo Stanton, and Jose Bautista's...
I like to think the Rays have a great internal operation and know how to replace Maddon at this point with someone who will have the same philosophy. Dave Martinez seems like an obvious choice to...

Sorry the updates are a little spread out here. Got my brewery open last weekend, and me and my kids have been sick this week (Norovirus). But gonna get things moving forward now.
She is a work of art to begin with
I preferred the Goonies character
This has nothing to do with Kobe and everything to do with how individual legacies are viewed around the sports world so poorly.
Rings/chips are team accomplishments, in no sport, can any...
I hope you see the irony in these two statements together, back to back.
I mean, Kobe kind of needs to shoot any way. Who else is going to put up better shots?
The sheer volume of the shots isn't the issue. It's the quality of them. Is he taking a lot of very...
So your evidence of us being 'wrong' is by saying that at one time, there were some people (no one on here specifically) were wrong about a player evaluation 10 years ago?
That's your plan?
17 threads about Kobe on the NBA front page (not including the stuck threads)
Hot topic right now I guess.
No, because rings are a team accomplishment and it would have nothing to do with him individually and everything to do with how his team played together.
Who were the 5 most valuable players in that game in order.
Name every scoring player, do a complete breakdown on the pitching, hitting, defense, and game calling from the umpires.
