What Aaron said is exactly right, and I'd say the reality is even more extreme. BM is fun for what it is, but there is almost no realism to speak of. That said, it is a fun little time killer if you don't want to spend the time to immerse yourself in OOTP.

They call it an inverted W because an M the outer lines on an M are straight up and down, so an inverted W is a better representation. Aside from that, I don't see where it was necessary for you to jump down jemiller's throat in the way that you did. He certainly never claimed to be a doctor, he simply noted the fact that some people with knowledge of such things see Strassburg as a likely injury case down the road. Granted, he may have put it in more definite terms that he should have. But I didn't see any malice in his statements, unlike your rather nasty responses.

Does anyone believe that Hosmer/Alvarez have a realistic chance of becoming a free agent? The Pirates\' statement seems to make clear that Boras\' aim is a renegotiation of Alvarez\' terms.

\"I know it might sound heartless, but Scott Boras does not have the responsibility to do good for baseball fans, he has the responsibility to do well for his clients.\" But by challenging Alvarez\' contract on the grounds of time, wasn\'t Boras wrecklessly endangering the financial well-being of another client? Knowing what I know of Boras, I am shocked that he would even make the time argument, knowing that Hosmer\'s contract was submitted even later. He\'s smarter than that.
