    Yeah, Scherzer is already 30. As an SP, he won't get a bigger deal by waiting another year. His biggest opportunity is now. The market will develop for him very soon I think.

    I think it's still far too early to say that. He frequently draws favorable comparisons to Adam LaRoche and scouts seem to love his bat as well as his big frame (6'4").

    He may never amount to...

    Piazza and The Hall

    Ok, it's been a few days now, but how is it possible that Biggio and Smoltz are now Hall of Famers while Piazza will have to wait until at least his fourth year of eligibility?

    Good call. Although, Anderson is more of a "can he hold up" question mark while Bills is probably a bit more of a "will he ever be effective again" type of question mark.

    Agreed, but that's kind of my point. I see Seager as a .300 25hr type. That is rarified air even at 3rd base these days. Add that to a defensive skillset that projects very well at SS, but even...

    I see your point and a high OBP is obviously highly important for a leadoff hitter, but high strikeout rates lead to reduced ability to put the ball in play.
