    A couple of things:
    1) You could easily make the argument that 1969-1992 numbers better apply to today's game than the more recent range that includes the Steroids Era.

    When we all have heart attacks by the time we are 40, just remember how you thought it was a waste to spend money on a closer. :-)

    I will say this, I don't think that I have ever seen someone that came up an infielder look as comfortable in CF as he does.

    Ha, I typically do this as well but not this year. You just have to look at the projected lineup and realize how few runs we are going to score. Last year we totaled fewest amount of runs since...

    So let me get this straight, when Steve Stone mentions the Cubs, it's sour grapes but it's perfectly ok to bash Dempster for exercising a contractual right until the end of time?

    I find it interesting that Alou has the same career OPS+ as Sosa.

    If anyone has a shot at getting unanimously voted in, it's Maddux.

    It looks like it will be up to the Veterans Committee to...

    Oliver projections has Ruggiano as a 3.5 win player. I'm not sure that happens but he can at least play all OF spots.

    Hart was going to be able to get more money from an AL team with an open DH spot. He can probably still hit but who knows if he could even handle 1B at this point much less LF.

    I guess I am rooting for a Red Sox vs Dodgers WS just for the storyline. There are a lot of former Sox players on that Dodgers team that will want to show that Red Sox made a bad trade.
