Very well done. Expand that out and it would make an interesting book I believe.

Saw Jackson here in Chattanooga- luck sure wasn't a factor unless you consider facing pitchers who throw 90+ arrow-straight fastballs lucky...

"Great hitter" or "Really Good Enhanced Hitter"? I was a big Manny fan when he was in the Cleveland farm system and was thrilled to see him have a great career through the years. But I have to say that my opinion is that he was great because he was juiced like many of the late-90's early 00's players. The timing of his excellent seasons, including the Dodgers late season run, seems a bit too coincidental, no?

Dykstra would have been a perfect fit for the Mets. His dad could have given them some sound financial advice.

Ah, Ruben Rivera indeed...my wife always reminds me of what a bust he is as I went on a Rookie Card hunt/binge while 'ol RR was in the low minors...yeah honey, this is going to be The Next Great Yankee. Even better when he stole from Jeter. Anybody interested in a stack of Rivera RC cheap? :(

No doubt you guys have great info and baseball intellect, but your podcast was unlistenable. BP has the potential for a fantastic podcast given the wide range of subjects within baseball stats in addition to simple baseball and fantasy talk, but you need the correct personalities to make it entertaining as well. Good Luck

Wharton93, that post was brilliant and informative from an economics standpoint...the fact it has a -6 rating as I write is sad. Contrary to popluar belief, baseball is a "game", life is not. Why reject intelligent discourse regardless of the forum?

I have a large stack of Rivera RC's if anyone is interested...my wife is kind enough to remind of that stack about once a year...I haven't bought another RC since.

Excellent to hear this news. I think if this is done right it could revolutionize the way hockey is viewed. I\'ve been a fan for about 11 years now and always felt hockey was missing quality analysis. Hopefully you\'ll find some quality writers from Canada to provide additional insight as well. Maybe even a forward by Tom Glavine. And I agree that a soccer prospectus would be at least worth a good try.

Okay, my response was uncalled for...I\'ll give myself a - rating...as a minority in America (hockey fan), I can get touchy...I\'m hoping Sidney Crosby runs for pres in 4 years so we\'ll be represented in the US after years of oppression, especially by ESPN...Crosby in \'12!!!! I\'m having fun...anyone else?

I love Keith Olbermann and Barack Obama! And George Bush introduced steroids into baseball, loves the DH, hates long, deep, slow kisses that last 2 days and is the cause of every miserable thing that has happened to humanity in the last eight years... (God, I am so in need of a positive rating...)

I hear George W. Bush knows a little about the game...and surely now he has time to jot down a few thoughts in a BP foreword.

Just to clarify, I have yet to read a post wherein anyone who does not care for Olbermann states they are not going to buy the book. I\'d buy the book if Satan wrote the foreward, although I hear he is a New Jersey hockey fan or maybe he\'s playing in Pittsburgh. I guess with the Hall of Fame debates and presidential elections concluded, we just need something to bare our teeth at and this issue was just laying in the field like a wounded deer in mid-winter.

Maybe you can get a Curt Schilling interview where he breaks down and weeps about the tragedy of Olbermann being included in BP similar to Tom Jackson\'s pitiful un-manly display over the Rush Limbaugh/Donovan McNabb issue. And anytime you include a political figure, especially a severe left/right figure, in an event, show, or book, you are going to get massive feedback from both sides as it should be. While I love sports, the politics of our land should supercede entertainment.

Yeah, us hockey fans LOVE ESPN! Sadly it like having a family to feed in today\'s economy...you hate to go to Wal-Mart but your choices are limited otherwise. Definitely jacked about the MLBN coming in January. The NHLN was a huge blessing to hockey and I love it. Also give XM/Sirius a try for its baseball coverage...excellent.

Not to sound like this is Basketball Prospectus, but don\'t hate the Yankees, hate the game (or the rules that govern the game). I am a life-long Yankees fan and even I have to admit the Yankees gross spending over the last 10-12 years goes against my personal beliefs about how I\'d like to see any team run. However, equally as honest, for any game I am in, I want to know the rules and exploit them to the best of my abilities to win the game within those set rules. The game the Yankees play in is beyond anything any of us will compete in and they are playing within the rules to best win this game. While many of us on this site play in a fantasy baseball league with winnings in the $500-$2,000 range, MLB teams play with billions of dollars at stake. I know when I compete in my league, I\'m doing whatever I can legally do to win. I would expect no less than this from a major business like the Yankees. And if you have a competitive bone in your body, you\'d act just like the Yankees in the same situation. The anger should be directed at the owners/players/union that sets and accepts the current system. While that statement may be debated at length as well, no rational person can logically blame the Yankees for doing what they do. And as I\'ve read on this site somewhere before, the other MLB teams outside of the Red Sox ought to be happy the Yankees use money primarily to solve their problems rather than a combination of sabermetrics and money (Red Sox).

I\'m very excited that the Dodgers AA team is coming to Chattanooga, TN. Hopefully they will bring through some top-notch prospects like the Reds did for many years.

Count my vote for a Hockey Prospectus, excellent idea...and if you are one of the a-holes that doesn\'t like hockey, then please choose to stay the hell off hockey discussions and go back to jerking-off at pictures of Sweet Lou Pinella.
