Some say Harper (should he stay healthy and produce like 2015) will get $500M when he becomes a free agent.
True. And the "innings eater" label I hear people throwing around is ridiculous. Until last year when he "exploded" to over 200 innings (averaging just a tick over 6IP/start) he had 2 years of not even averaging 6IP/start yet throwing 90-100 pitches every start. A guy struggling to get through 5 innings is not an innings eater.
I would say in the cases you sighted all have to do with those players being REALLY good and it just so happened they fell into a certain demographic. If Inciarte, or Parra, (to use Llary's examples) were seen to be of value and part of a winning team AZ would've kept them regardless of their race or skin color.
So now rather than fielding the best team possible ownership has to have racial quotas to please the fans??
"<span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Ned+Yost">Ned Yost</a></span> sits in the dugout, enjoying life anyway."
This line made me laugh, nice.
That's why I now sync up a radio broadcast and turn the TV volume down.
"It's not all bad: Zito's durability and good career start combine to make him among the next in line-behind former teammate <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=938">Tim Hudson</a></span> and essentially even with Roy Oswalt-to make a run at 300 wins."
Always fun to look back at comments like this and realize how ridiculously off base they are.
Come to BP looking for articles on the baseball weekend and get a lame attempt at humor. Man, BP has fallen.
I'm sitting here at my desk thinking the headline was an innocent mistake and then read "2-1" in the article as well...what the heck?
That slash line...brilliant.
"You have our sympathies, Pirates: The Cubs didn't deserve worse, but you deserved better."
Or we could just go back to only division winners getting in the playoffs. You don't want to play a one game crapshoot? Win your division.
Is there a reason BP doesn't have an article up about the Price trade yet?
It's articles like this, and the fact that most other articles are Fantasy related, that has led me to not renew when my current subscription runs out.
I agree but it seems saying so gets negative votes.
Sorry, I don't understand these "future" articles, at all.
What has played, 3 games? Good grief.
I go with getting the 8th place hitter out and then having the pitcher lead off the next inning.
Can we all agree now that the "outrage" over him being sent down, missing EIGHT games, was a bit silly?
I honestly don't know how to figure out that graph.
I had Nick-y Punto in my head the entire time I read this article.
I remember reading an article not so long ago about how much (or shockingly little) the vast majority of minor league players are paid. It was eye opening.
Getting another year of control of Bryant vs not having him on the roster for about 10 games is a no-brainer despite the backlash. It's business, smart business.
The Cubs have a LOT of "ifs" to even be on the cusp of contention. I wouldn't be surprised if the Cubs win 90 games or lose 90 games this year.
He played the entire year (his first full year) at 22 years old. Played great defense, hit 16 homers. His walk and K rates are similar to <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=45435">Adam Jones</a></span>. Wanting Utley instead of Schoop is what turns a franchise into the current Phillies. Look beyond the slash numbers.
What's wrong with Schoop?
Numbers transposed in Kris Bryant's batting average.
How is Tanner Roark just dismissed in all this?
What about Joe Panik?
"he’s one of the few players in baseball with the potential to supplant Mike Trout as the overall #1 pick one day"
Wow, that is a BOLD statement.
But if voters voted in a guy on the first ballot (they either are a HoFer or aren't...the "he isn't a first ballot guy" is ridiculous) there wouldn't be log jams. 10 Hall of Fame players do not retire each year.
I don't get the 10 vote limit not being enough. Are you telling me that every year there are more than 10 HoF worthy candidates? If that is the case then the HoF is being watered down.
No "Babe" with John Goodman pretending to know how to swing a bat left handed??
Could someone explain Matt Sussman's votes for AL MVP and CY Young to me please? Price is his MVP but not the Cy Young choice?
Maybe we can get another awkwad press conference before he goes!
He was at only 100 pitches! I think Matt Williams made a huge mistake. I know in hindsight it's easy to say that but Zimmermann had just retired 20 straight batters, keep him in the game!
Also, I can't believe how bad Posey's slide was...he's lucky he didn't break his right ankle.
Weird Al would not approve of your using numbers as letters!
This topic seems to be gaining momentum...there was also a recent article in Sports Illustrated I believe (or it may have been ESPN The Mag). I honestly did not know their pay was this bad, very eye opening.
I would assume slim to none. Let's be generous and say he hit's 35 a year (his 162 game average is 41 for his career)...he will need to play 7+ seasons at that pace to catch Aaron.
The thing that gets me about pace of play is how blatantly the rule book is ignored regarding the strike zone and each ump making up his own zone. How is this acceptable and just waved away like it's nothing??
Is it just me or are there a TON of potential huge impact shortstops on the doorstep of MLB?
I always get a bit choked up about how Gehrig realized his career was over...routine ground ball, flip to pitcher for out, teammates say "nice play".
"According to BrooksBaseball.net, the average velocity of Hernandez’s four-seam fastball was 93.07 mph last season. It was 98.36 mph in his rookie season in 2007."
I don't know, I attribute this to King Felix learning how to pitch rather than anything injury/fatigue related.
Recently watched a short 30 for 30 about Rose, probably the saddest thing I've ever seen.
That was awesome. Was tough stifling my laughter while sitting at my desk.
To expand on my thoughts...his front appears to be way to far open or his arm dragging behind, just looks odd to me. Reading Jason's comments I see he notes his "delivery is clean" so it must just be me.
I'm definitely not a pitching expert but something about the picture of Biddle throwing a pitch on the top of this article just doesn't look right. His form looks dreadful to me.
I just read 90+ "new" comments that were nothing but whining. :-
Why, as a voter, are you concerned AT ALL (fake voting or not) what another voter is or isn't going to do?
What's quite a statement is people thinking the only way to protect, grow, teach, nuture our kids is to have government step in or in someway hide our kids from whatever "evil" is trying to get them.
I have almost, almost, gotten to the point where I don't give a flying **** if a pro athlete wants to juice or not. If they want to shorten their lifespan, shrink their testacles, have back acne, all for the sake of running faster, hitting the ball higher, tackling harder, who cares? Let's just turn them all into freak shows and see what happens.
I'm sure most of us have heard that they basically had bowls of uppers sitting out in the clubhouses, basically like M&Ms.
What? If everyone thought that way then only borderline guys would get in. Vote for the guys you want in, period. Don't try to outthink the room.
Bottom line though, a vast majority of the BBWAA voters are frigging idiots.
You consider Edgar Martinez a HoFer but not Tim Raines, I'm not sure what to say about that.
I absolutely expected Baltimore to crash and burn last year after the all star break, what they were doing was completely smoke and mirrors and 1-run game luck. They kept it going which was cool and a great story though. That said, I think the Orioles are going to take a HUGE tumble this year, regress, whatever you want to call it, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them struggle to win 75 games.
Maybe so, but I don't believe it's money wisely spent.
-1 for not being able to stop the uncontrollable urge to add political commentary.
Angel fans, settle down. You are about to witness 2 players go over the talent cliff while on the hook for $300M or so. There are no World Series trophies in the future based on this signing.
I don't know about anyone else but these gif heavy articles make me nauseous...really hard to look at. ESC, here I come.
Oh, never thought of that. But MLB AtBat feed costs, right?
How can you sync the radio and tv when radio is about 10-15 seconds ahead??
At first glance I thought that guy pumping his fist was Alex Smith.
As much as many Tiger fans want to believe the end is near...they win tonight and get a road split, go home for 3 (think they'll take 2) and we go back to SF ahead 3-2. Book it.
Pretty sure 78 was mine...Reggie's hip being one play that sticks in my mind (I was 12)...was this also the series when Goose Gossage almost killed Ron Cey?
The Yankees (and the Angels will eventually) deserve all the trouble they will get from signing an aging "superstar" to a double digit year / triple digit sum contract.
This. In what other sport do officials so blatanly ignore a rule in the rule book? If an ump calls a strike just above the belt the batter nearly has a coronary.
Do these PECOTA odds take into account Mat Latos melting down over one missed call and a bad fielding play?
And I don't like 2-3-2 either.
I think it's unfair as I've always said the team with home field advantage, should home field hold up throughout the series, should never have to face an elimination game until the final game of the series. With 2-3 format the team with advantage could potentially face 3 straight elimination games, completely wrong IMHO. The elimination game pressure should fall on the "weaker" team.
His first step was IN and then he coasted...he just badly misplayed that ball, which is RARE.
BP couldn't find a picture of Valverde in a Tiger's uniform?
The memory of Gibson off Eck will always stick with me...my wife and had just been married and moved into our base house at Vandenberg AFB in California...we were eating take out at our "table" that was a packing box when it happened. Funny how that stays so vivid in one's mind after 25 years.
No way they get Blanco at 3rd on that bunt...from the over head camera it's deceiving when stopped but in real time by the time Bailey stood up to throw Blanco was sliding.
Also, did Romo look teeny on the mound or was it just it me?
Lastly, doesn't Brian Wilson realize that his beard has run it's course and now he just looks like an absolute idiot?
I didn't mind the one-game "playoff" as much as the ludicrous, insane, idiotic 2-3 format. There is no way that is fair to the team with home field "advantage". I've always felt a team with home field advantage, should home field hold up for both teams, shouldn't face an elimination game until game 7. THAT is the advantage. I even hate the 2-3-2 format.
Dairy Queen (Grill and Chill) is such an underrated eatery. They have really good food. Sorry, saw the InDQredible in the article, couldn't resist.
The ump raised his arm to call IF when the ball HIT THE GROUND!
Well, being I predicted here on BP a Baltimore collapse starting mid August due to their incredible 1-run/extra inning W/L record and really average talent, I have no clue what to expect tonight. But I know I'm REALLY looking forward to watching!
"I'm not a big fan of it," right-hander Tim Hudson said. "I don't think a lot of players are. I understand there are one-game tiebreakers for division titles or wild cards, but this is different. We're already in the postseason.
Win the division and this isn't an issue.
I read the headline and thought..."Brandon Moss".
I wonder if they cash the checks signed the "fag" owner?
Who cares, really?
So where do the A's fall on the list of most unexpected playoff teams, assuming they get in? They have to be near the top, not?
Ugh, that stretch of 295 absolutely sucks though...may be the most direct way but I'll take 95 between the two...although that sucks as well...god I hate traffic in this area.
Another Royal at the top of the lists...seeing Hosmer and Moustakas struggling this year I bet KC fans are wondering whether all these guys are going to pan out.
Not too mention Gonzalez is not aging gracefully. His best days are clearly behind him.
Uggh, god I hate the "Nation" stuff. The other day on local radio here in Hampton Roads Virginia sports guy was talking about Old Dominion and "Monarch Nation". When will this all go away?
The Orioles success is a mirage, they are due to collapse...look at the run differential of the AL wild card contenders and tell me which one doesn't belong. It's startling actually.
Look at the run differential of the AL Wild Card contenders and tell me what team doesn't belong...I predict an Oriole September swoon.
What about the risk Trout takes in waiting and not asking now? What if this very limited sample size is the outlier and in 2 or 3 years he's a .275/.340/.420 player? Now, I don't think that will be the case but it seems everyone just assumes his production is going to continue to be off the charts and there is ZERO guarantee of that.
How about actually calling a strike a strike per the rule book?
As much as I hate Hawk Harrelson every time I watch a game with the White Sox I find myself shouting right along with him...You cannnnnn put it on the boarrddddd...YESSS!
@greshock...my son plays travel hockey here in Virginia and we frequently travel to PA for games...I hate trying to find a liquor store for the parent's late night drinking. Makes you appreciate walking into 7-11 and grabbing a case that much more!
re: Larkin's daughter singing...at my Air Force retirement in 2009 my 18 year old daughter sang the national anthem at the beginning of the ceremony and it was the most terrifying, wonderful, joyous, nerve wracking moment all at once. She nailed it, she is so cool under pressure, and I'm so lucky for her. And I have good bumps and misty eyes typing this.
Sorry for the personal detour.
So 2 1/2 weeks of somewhat "hot" hitting warrant a 1,300 word analysis and speculation?
@timber...then NAME some!
Livan Hernandez's was the best.
Don't TWO teams play in each game?
Well...that guy must be CLUTCH!
Yep...hit it on the ground, make them make a play.
Abstinence is the only sure fire way to prevent pregancy...home runs are the only sure fire way to score runs...both seem to be equally hated.
Did Schroeder ACTUALLY say that? And, if so, he's still employed?
Watching the game last night I heard the announcers say he can throw his knuckler anywhere between 60 and 80 MPH, that has to be a big reason for his success. Haven't most knuckleballers in the past thrown it at 1 speed?
The kid was thrown under the guys seat next to the first guy...you can see his arm as he claws his way back to freedom.
Wilson's "schtick" got old about 10 minutes after it started. Can't believe the press just continued to eat it up.
Only quibble would be Reese at SS. Being you have Bonds and Clemens on your team I'd put A-Rod at SS.
I don't get the -1 rating...how do explain that in a generation pitchers went from regular 300+ innings, 20-30 complete games a year seasons to where we are today without linking it to pitchers being coddled? Or is it JUST the money and investment? Either way, pitchers today are being hurt by the philosophy that is supposed to help them.
Yep, and both drafted as shortstops! That was a horrible draft, with only Jim Rice taken prior to Brett/Schmidt being worth much. Frank Tanana was there but, meh.
I am convinced that the coddling of pitchers via pitch and inning limits in an attempt to stave off injury has actually done the exact opposite. You build arm strength by throwing alot and then throwing alot more...with proper mechanics. Was it here at BP I saw a wonderful article detailing Strasburg's motion to Greg Maddux's motion and how Strasburg is just an injury waiting to happen because his body is so out of whack when he pitches?
Name: Cheslor Cuthbert
HT/WT: 5’11’’ 200 lbs.
Notes: Body looks toned; more athletic than in ’11; feet are lighter; solid-build; short but not squatty; muscular legs; thick lower half but not too thick; waist/hips are proportional to torso/legs; muscular upper body
Does ANY of this really matter if he can play? Or can't play?
I'm betting your prediction for Dunn, by year end, will be very low! He's going to have a .260/.400/.580 with 40+ homers and 100+ RBI, along with 100 walks and 200 K's...in other words, the real Adam Dunn.
"The shortstop took a step toward Jimenez, who then started toward Tulowitzki."
OOOO, tough baseball players. What a joke. You wanna solve the faux tough guy acts in baseball? If a batter and pitcher want to go at it, let 'em (or a base runner and a 2B on a hard slide, etc). You come off the bench, you are ejected, you leave your position to enter the fray, you are ejected. Let the guys fight rather than stand behind an ump feigning struggling to get around him and at the guy your mad at...HOLD ME BACK! HOLD ME BACK! I love baseball but it's unwritten rule book and the ridiculous scene of bullpens emptying in order to "match up" with another team's reliever and chit chat is asinine.
1. Derek Jeter’s defense degrades to the point where, when he tries to go to his left, he goes to his right.
Best line in the article, great! I get the Andino references now, just took a bit of memory jogging!
I need to do some researching on Robert Andino to figure out the joke here.
"The 2002-2003 Giants were led by Barry Bonds, who perplexingly peaked in his late 30s"
Perplexingly indeed. LOL.
ZERO POINT ONE SIX ERA?
Just a gut feeling but I think the Cardinals are going to be really, really good this year. Reason? I think the 25 guys left behind by Pujols will want to prove they weren't a one man team. We all know they weren't (a one man team) but that will be their motivation.
Is it silly to predict a Nationals World Series title within the next 5 years?
@Chiefsnark (first post)...that's assuming Cabrera actually lasts at 3B. Frankly, I don't see it lasting beyond the first month.
" Angels first basemen produced 2.4 WARP, roughly an average total."
Wouldn't an average total be a WARP of 0.0?
"He not only had the right to this appeal and the verdict that he received, but our acceptance of it as well"
I'm not sure I agree that we have to "accept" this verdict. If I'm understanding correctly he's not arguing that he didn't use, just that the handling of the sample was messed up...and I would assume then arguing that the sample was possibly tainted in the handling process. To me that just reeks of grasping at straws to get off, preceded by lawyers gathering around with Braun and trying to find a loophole. In my mind, he used...but you know what, I'm not sure I really care.
That is the "Perfect World Projection", not what anyone thinks will happen. If you watched him last year in MLB it's easy to see where a Cy Young is possible.
I can't even spell fake words right! HILERRIBLE!
Jackpot!! So much for any productivity today at work!! WOOHOOO!!!! :)
I only see 2011 spreadsheet.
As good as Hultzen was in college, and as mature as he seems to be, you don't think there's a chance he makes the Mariners rotation right out of spring?
Yes...forgot him...think 3rd.
Thanks much for your thoughts.
Just to clarify, it's a Strat-O-Matic rookie draft, so all the other "good ones" are taken (and I in fact have Dustin Pedroia and Howie Kendrick).
My projected first round (in which I don't even have a pick) looks like this: Mike Trout, Eric Hosmer, Brett Lawrie, Michael Pineda, Desmond Jennings, Dustin Ackley, Craig Kimbrel, Freddie Freeman, Jesus Montero, maybe Brandon Beachy, and Jason Kipnis.
But you'd put Kipnis above Ackley it sounds like.
I'll be passing on Jemile Weeks, whom Lamanna has #11, but he has Kipnis #12.
We just started our league draft (APBA Baseball for Windows)...pretty knowledgeable bunch...Hosmer went 1st, Kipnis, Matt Moore, Moustakas, Ackley, Weeks, Pineda, Lawrie were all gone by my pick at #9...I took Chisenhall to fill a need, hopefully he'll pan out. I really wanted Ackley or Kipnis though...
"He's a fine runner, and that way you don't burn Molina's bat and glove if the Cards tie."
Am I missing something? If Lohse runs for Molina isn't Molina's bat and glove "burnt"? There aren't courtesy runners in MLB last I checked.
I'm guessing Jason Parks is somewhat a student of MLB hitters strengths and weaknesses...either that or he's a great BSer.
Brian Wilson has turned into a caricature of himself and his act is t-i-r-e-d.
"Having Verlander is always a good thing, but he's not going to put up a Cy Young/MVP type season every year, "
Why can't he??
re: Pujols...does everyone remember the sports talk world hemorrhage after Pujols' Opening Day oh for five performance?
The Tiger that is tiring and completely out of gas (and I called this back in August) is Alex Avila. Leyland killed him during they year, especially in August, by playing him every freaking day. Avila it completely worn out.
This is similar to what I've read about the best hockey players. Because hockey divisions are broke out by birth year, a vast majority of the best players were born early in their birth years. Theoretically a player born 1 Jan 1997 would be at same level as a player born 31 Dec 1997, despite the year in age difference, which at earlier levels (Bantam for example) is HUGE. I know there are always exceptions (Crosby was born in August, August 7 1987 to be exact, thus his number 87) but just on the surface this does make sense.
Off topic a bit, I know, apologize.
Heck, swap Granderson, Ellsbury and Bautista for just about any average player at their position, and their teams finish in the exact same place.
Which means nobody on a 4th place team should ever be considered for MVP.
My only point is WAR (which seems to be what many today base their arguments on), in and of itself, is not the way to pick an MVP. Theoretically a player on a 120 loss team could lead the league in WAR every year and, in some of your minds, that person would be a multiple time MVP winner. As Ron Burgundy said about ESPN..."That's just dumb.".
Super, Bautista is the best player on a .500 team that finished in 4th, 16 games back, yeah, he's worthy. Good grief, this is a case of people being so blinded by new age "stuff" that they can't see the forest for the trees.
I get using new age analysis and stats to shine the light on guys who aren't just compilers but there is NO WAY IN HELL that Jose Bautista should be the AL MVP. I do not understand how people think he is...just amazing.
In 1988 while driving non-stop from Monroe Michigan to Bismarck North Dakota (18 hour trip), just entering the outskirts of Bismarck I saw pink polka dot elephants crossing the interstate. Needless to say, was glad I was almost home but how stupid to drive that far non-stop.
Sadly for Alex Avila, I think Jim Leyland is going to run him into the ground. Saw a lot of Avila last week (on TV and in person at Comerica) on vacation back in Michigan and he seems to have a great bat, despite his minor league numbers and somewhat high OBP. Hopefully we'll get to see him to fruition but I'm doubtful. Damn Leyland (he is DESPISED in Detroit BTW).
Greg Brady pitched in MLB?
What the hell IS going on in that picture??!
I love how in the Giants/Phillies "brawl" earlier this week that Shane Victorino conveniently waited for someone to get between him and the Giant before he started flipping out. Baseball players do that ALL the time. HOLD ME BACK! HOLD ME BACK!! I say let the 2 guys go at like hockey does, anyone jump in or come off the bench, instant suspensions...let's see who the tough guys really are.
It's easy to find dings in Wheeler, who has a 3.99 ERA in 16 starts for High-A San Jose, especially in his command and control and an arm slot that makes him susceptible to lefties, but he also has mid-90s heat, a sharp breaking ball, and one of those bodies that just looks like an All-Star starter.
So did Aaron Heilman.
The people at Google are probably wondering why the spike on searches for Sherilyn Fenn. Wow, very nice.
No, the article DOES say it was a diagnosed as a sprained ankle and then the author goes on to SPECULATE what MAY have happened. And yes, he could've been helped off with a couple trainers/benchmates. I guess I have too much hockey blood in me.
I'm sorry but the sight of Delmon Young being strapped to a gurney and wheeled off after his sprained ankle is just ridiculous. What, was he channeling his inner Paul Pierce?
Regarding Wilson, I don't know how a guy can be considered disappointing or a bust when the organization he was working for abused him until he broke down.
Definitely don't have to lose consciousness to suffer a concussion. My 14 year old son plays ice hockey and in February got hit along the boards, his head pushed in the glass...he visited la-la land for about an hour and a half, never lost consciousness, but the hospital ER diagnosed it as a Grade III concussion. I though it should be Grade II being no loss of consciousness, but whatever, bottom line is you don't need to be knocked out.
Now, my real question is, how does Brian Roberts sustain a concussion on a head first slide? I haven't seen the supposed play.
Scott Rolen was caught taking unauthorized practice swings in the batting cages outside of the Reds clubhouse. The swinging stopped when Dr. Tim Kremcek found Rolen out and told him that was a naughty thing for a player on the DL to do.
So players on the DL can't do anything baseball related?
With a side of bacon sauce.
With the news about Cueto having shoulder problems how does that change his outlook?
I've always thought you could look at a player's name and know if he might be good or not. Mickey Mantle, great. Babe Ruth, great. Duke Snider, great. Ben Zobrist, not so much. Mickey Tettleton, not so much. It really works...name any player that is considering a very good to great player and his name will roll off your tongue.
AND the #1 LF!
Why, if the OF's are being separated, is CarGo the #1 CF and the #1 RF? Is he THAT good?
I think "harbinger(s) for success" are K/9 and BB/9, not velocity.
I'm in a BBW fantasy baseball league, The Mudville Confederacy, and recently traded CC for Hudson and Gio Gonzalez...good move? I think so, obviously.
If the Cardinals cave and give him 10 years/$30M a year, they are destined to be a 2nd division team for at least the last 6-7 years of the deal. Pujols is amazing, no doubt, but to invest this much in a player already over 30 years old (do we REALLY know how old he is?) is a franchise killing move.
In fact, he's in such elite company that a Sesame Street classic is in order as we run through the entire list: Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, and Renteria.
That is awesome, just awesome. One of these things is not like the other things!
Meh, a flash in the pan WS winner...only remembered because of a catchy Sister Sledge song.
A "where were you?" moment" indeed. My wife and I had been married a few weeks before and were in our "new" house on Vandenberg AFB CA, no furniture, eating dinner on a moving box, watching the game. Wow.
Any team that overpays for Bautista will get what they deserve...and that is regression to his 15 HRs in 450 PA performance. He is the 2010 version of Brady Anderson.
This wasn't a "Premium" article.
Cynical much, holy s**t.
(Actually, it's a bit more brutal than you'd expect: you can watch a typical procedure here.)
My first thought was "he's similar to JD Drew" just like the first poster. I do think when you have a chance to get a young kid with his skill set you take it. Hermida could be VERY good and if he's not the price was minimal so it doesn't hurt. I predict he'll blossom in Boston.
Speaking of commentators...believe the Phillies/Rox yesterday on the radio had Chris Berman (the worst play by play guy in history) and Rick (everybody is "terrific" or "top notch" or "unbelievable") Sutcliffe. It was brutal.
It looks like a beautiful place. I work with a guy who has Mets season tix, drives from Hampton Roads VA to New York for certain games, have to ask him how it was.
Preventive care is one of the HUGE factors why players use PEDs. They can stay on the field by recovering from or avoiding injuries. Obviously we know steroid build muscle to a mass that the human body can\'t usually handle, thus injuries. On one hand I say, let them all use, who cares. On the other hand, I do care, I am really torn over all this.
The highlight of the gap between NFL ending and MLB starting...love to see that cardboard and plastic wrap sticking out the top of my mailbox! WooHoo!
