As someone that doesn't necessarily know all the details of baseball everywhere (working on it), I would have loved to hear you guys give a personal description/take on the Lueke situation. Thanks for bringing it up, though. Why I like to listen to you guys.

Ben, your comments about statistics vs. scouting have spurred some interesting dialogue in my head. I want to try to write it up. It might end up being too bloggy for here but I'll pass it over eventually in case. It's somewhere in the mix of things to do.

Nice show and props to that email question. Holy hypothetical. If it counts for anything, I'm not sure I'm in the market for much of anything coming from North Korea!

I'd nominate Ruben Amaro Jr. for the list.

I'm kinda surprised that Steinbrenner doesn't get a mention for least beloved. There are a ton of people out there who HATED him.
