    I just have one question: There aren't 10 better Power Forwards than Amare at this point? If not, then it's a really weak position. He's a shell of his former self. I would submit that he's on...

    You're taking it out of context. I threw out reasons that one could argue for Cabrera being better than Pujols--not that I think he is or isn't. I was just throwing things out there that could be...

    What exactly are his "limitations"? That he doesn't score from the outside with enough consistency? Neither does Lebron.

    He plays great defense. Runs the offense extremely well. Rebounds...

    I looked at the list and thought 2 things: 1, Rose owned CP3 in their head-to-head game this year and 2, the position of PG has really changed.

    There are guys who are more "traditional" PG's like...

    A couple of thoughts:

    1- How you win is important. Cheating is just wrong and it's flat out stupid to say otherwise.

    2- To blame anything on the officials is ridiculous. If somebody robs your...

    He's played in tougher divisions, has no suspicion of steroids on him--yet, and he has a triple crown.

    I don't personally think he's better than Pujols yet but for 1 specific season, I'd say...

    I agree BUT the reason you have relievers is to clean up that mess to begin with. I think if the reliever gives up the run he should be penalized for both runs in some way.

    I don't think it's an out of line statement but I do think it's false. The older fans have seen more of the sport and aren't as inclined to be as biased as the younger fans tends to be.

    I know you weren't talking about me but I am old enough to remember Jerry Rice in his prime. I saw his whole career. He's probably the sole reason YAC became a recorded stat.

    That's fair. BUT you have to admit, the rules have changed to favor the modern player over the older player. When Jordan played the NBA was extremely physical and very defensive, unlike now. When...

    I disagree. Kobe is probably not a top 10 player. He's a scorer and that's about it.

    Fitzgerald, when all is said and done, has a shot at being a top 3 or 4 WR of all-time. Kobe has a shot at...

    Every generation thinks their players are the best of all-time. It never works out that way. Lebron on Kobe couldn't touch Jordan with a 100-foot pole. Pujols would never start over Gehrig and...

    I think it's an interesting discussion. Ultimately I don't see where it makes sense to penalize a Pitcher's ERA using a defensive metric.

    I think a better discussion is what stat should be...

    It's comments like this that make this a nauseating discussion for most people.

    Leave Derek Jeter out of this because it has nothing to do with ARod.

    I agree. The problem with stats is that they're very subjective. Whether it's football, baseball, or basketball, the same stat can be argued from multiple perspectives.

    The problem with this entire debate is that most of the Hispanic hitters were steroid users. Pujols, ARod, Manny, Ortiz are all tainted by association or suspicion.
