I thought that Bonds and Clemens numbers would be a little higher than what they were.
Biggio will get in eventually. I think people just looked at him as a really good player for a long period of time, and never truly dominant. I disagree and think that 20+ years of putting up the numbers he did(and getting to 3000 hits) deserves a first ballot election. But it could be argued that the only reason he got to 3000 was his longevity, and really he has one of the lower batting averages of the guys with 3000 hits.
He will get in though, not many guys take 68% first year and don't get there eventually. I think Bagwell has a good shot as well. Maybe a killer B's reunion in the Hall some day?
Poor Milton Bradley, his life is just one big board game & he sits in Jail, directly in jail.
On another subject. What the hell is up with the Arizona Diamondbacks & Justin Upton? They have been hinting at trading the guy for weeks now & then finally get a deal done with one of the four teams on his do not trade list. How can they disrespect the guy any more than this? It is one of the weirdest things ever & handled about as poorly as I have ever witnessed. Now, any other team that is interested knows that Az. absolutely has to trade the guy & the actions of the GM has greatly reduced what they cann expect to get in return. Weird, just plain weird!
As you said they are going to have to go back to teams that they were talking to before they tried to make the deal with the M's and none of the GM's from teams they were talking to are going to give them the same deal as what the D-backs were going to get if they would have just dealt him to a team that wasn't on Upton's no trade list.
If I was a voter I would have had Biggio on my ballot but I can see why people wouldn't.
There are just voters out there who will not vote for anyone on the first ballot and we will see that next year when some dumbasses will not have Greg Maddux on their ballot when the guy is arguably one of the best pitchers in the history of the game.
The Nats are se ton world domination. They continue to get stronger each day. And the Yankees continue to flounder & that's not a bad thing.
JB, In the Lost MLB thread, I asked you a question but I never got to see your answer so I'll wash, rinse, repeat.
Since Houston went to the AL West & we have 15 teams in each league now, that requires interleague play everyday. My Angels open the season with 3 in Cincinnati against your Reds. Any thoughts on that?
With Hamilton going there along with Trout and Pujols already there, at least one of those games during that series should end up on ESPN or ESPN2.
They have to do interleague all season long or else there would be teams not playing at all. With 15 teams per league, there would be one from each league sitting it out.
