    It's the Jack Morris one that really paves the way for CC, but I'm not a fan of the "this guy got in so this guy should get in" logic. Hopefully the Hall can start holding themselves to a higher...

    I actually think you're both right. I'm not a fan of showmanship and will always prefer humble players who do their job in an understated way -- its one of the reasons Barry Sanders has always been a...

    Agree he wants a multi-year deal and has been an elite all-time closer, but not as sure about no signs of slowing down. He appeared to be a different pitcher in the second half and in the playoffs...

    Bottomley played in a great era for hitters. His OPS+ is a solid but unspectacular 125, compared to 155 for Votto. Also, a .369 OBP compared to .427 for Votto. Votto is under contract for 5 more...

    Baines is a tough comp for anyone as that was such an odd choice, but I think it's tough to imagine Votto not getting in when Edgar Martinez is in there. Fairly similar skill-sets and of course...

    Interesting. I actually think it gets a lot better in the 2nd and 3rd season but I loved the first, too.

    I know Tuffy Rhodes' 3 HR opening day stands out as the most extreme example here but for some reason Chris Shelton's opening to the 2006 season always sticks in my mind.

    After 15 games, he was...

    Per Rotoworld, Lindor suffered a left ankle sprain while running the bases. An MRI showed the sprain to be moderate. Not good.
