P.S. Pedro was far better than Kershaw. Happy to take up that debate.

"Pedro was far better than Kershaw."

You just lost all credibility for a period of one baseball season. At that level, "far" has no meaning - "slightly", "marginally", "a little bit" better, perhaps - but "far" is the distance between Pedro and Aaron Harang, or Clay the K and Edwin Jackson, not between the quintessential Boston Pete and the best lefthanded starting pitcher in Dodgers history whose last initial is "K"!

Sounds like the new guy is trying to stir up some trouble right here in River City...

I for one welcome our new Pedro-loving overlord. I will unfortunately miss the chat because I'll be toiling in the sugar tunnels, but I look forward to reading the transcript later.

Is Kershaw closer to Pedro or Harang? I can't really tell. http://www.fangraphs.com/graphsw.aspx?players=200,2036,1451&wg=1

The day after Clayton Kershaw day is always such a drag.

Don't think of it as "The Day After Kershaw Day." Think of it as "Boxing Day" or "Greinke Day" or maybe even "Kershaw Day (Canada)."

Wow. An app is long overdue! Don't screw us Android user by making it iOS only.

No I think "far" was the right word.
