DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, your rankings were very confusing to me. You neglected to include the following: Al Simmons, Indian Bob Johnson, the quieter "Nebraska"-style albums of Bruce Springsteen, Alex Rodriguez vs. New Coke, Richard Burton's films made while drunk vs. those he made while sober, and whether the left breast is superior to the right breast in most circumstances. Also, where does Evan Longoria rank among the above? Thanks for the chat!
(Steven Goldman from The Pinstriped Bible Seminary)
Thank you for bringing this up, Steven, so I wouldn't have to eviscerate any readers publicly. For the love of Jebus people, I have not done the 2010 rankings yet--that's why such-and-such a player isn't on the list.

I'm finishing up the review of 2009 this week, and then moving on to this year's positional rankings using a new system with advice you fine folks gave me weekly.

Also, left > right, and Evan Longoria's value is found in between those. (Marc Normandin)
