DateQuestionAnswer
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best team of Berts of all time? Rules: You can have anyone with a "bert" in his name -- Albert Pujols, Robin Roberts, David Robertson, Wilbert Robinson....
(Robert from DC)
Without spending too much time on this one, I'd go with these as my obvious picks:

1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Roberto Alomar
SS: Bert Campaneris
OF:Roberto Clemente
SP: Bert Blyleven
CP: Roberto Hernandez (R.J. Anderson)
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please comment on Bruce Jenkins' two-part story on the decline of the complete game in the San Francisco Chronicle. After part 1 you said you didn't disagree with it. Still true?
(oira61 from San Francisco)
I'm still digesting it. I think Jenkins did a lot of good work here - that he started with Doug Melvin's idea of reliever first shows he did his digging. In the end though, he goes back to what Keith Woolner pointed out a couple years ago, that we're using the exceptions to prove the rule. Robin Roberts was NOT normal any more than Randy Johnson is normal. If the point is that we can probably get more out of pitchers, then I agree. If the point is, as it seems at the end, that bucking pitch counts and just throwing until the arm falls off is the best way to find the next Robin Roberts, I'll disagree strongly. (Will Carroll)
