2011-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)More devastating injury to their team: Kyrie Irving or Mike Scott?
(Ben Allaire from Raleigh, NC)
Scott. He was way more prominent in the offense and has way less help. As for Irving, I thought the undergrads in that “Get Well, Kyrie” video put it pretty well: With him Duke could go 37-0 and win the national championship. Without him they could go 35-2 and win the national championship. (John Gasaway (Basketball))
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)'10 Mariners vs. '86 Mets in a 7 game series: who ya got?
(I Got Ripped in 4 Weeks from I'm Crazy Ripped)
Still the '86 Mets. The only thing that seemed certain of beating them was Mike Scott in a Game Seven that never was. (Christina Kahrl)

2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneF. Leghorn (Denver): Was that 1986 season by Mike Scott one of the most dominating one-year wonders ever? It seems to me that he was not too great before '86 or after (injuries?) I just remember it was all due to his learning a split finger which, I think, eventually killed his arm.

Scott's '87 and '88 seasons weren't all that shabby, ranking among the best-ever in Astros' franchise history, and his '85 and '89 campaigns were good as well:

2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneF. Leghorn (Denver): Was that 1986 season by Mike Scott one of the most dominating one-year wonders ever? It seems to me that he was not too great before '86 or after ( injuries? ) I just remember it was all due to his learning a split finger which, I think, eventually killed his arm.

He was never THAT good again, but he had about a five-year run of being an above-average pitcher, including a 20-win season in 1989. He really was sort of a latter-day Smoky Joe Wood in 1986, though, just a spectacular, not-to-be repeated season. (Steven Goldman)
2009-10-28 17:00:002009 WS Game OneThis is getting ahead of things, but the way Lee is pitching this feels like it might be like the 1986 NLCS for the Yankees, where the Mets knew they had to win it in six because if it went to a seventh game they'd face Mike Scott again, and almost certainly lose. (Steven Goldman)
