Terrific college player but he doesn't have a position. Too small to play power forward, and not fast enough nor does he have the game to play the 3.
Posted Wednesday October 03, 2012, About: Biggest surprise and biggest disappointment of the MLB season
Angels aren't a huge disappointment IMO. I'm a fan and I predicted them as a wildcard team, not so far off of where they are.

Really, signing Pujols made everyone more optimistic and ignore the team's issues. For example, Ervin Santana has been horse **** for years. Haren was a disappointment, but shaky last season too. Injuries slowed him down this year, which was a surprise. Wilson started strong but faded fast in the second half. They never had a 5th starter, but everyone over looked that and overestimated Santana because of Wilson.

The offense coming into the year was a mess. Trout was no where to be seen as he was in the minors. So, the expectations for this team were WAY too high all things considered at the beginning of the year.

Their biggest down fall was the bullpen. They had a brutal pen all year and it really cost them.

The bats came alive at the end of the year, and they have a good core for next year, with an improved bullpen, Greinke back and bounce back years from Wilson and Haren, this team could be really good. But they need to be good now, before Pujols starts to decline.

Sorry for the long post.

And I'd love to see Jordan

Bobby Orr, Dan Marino, Hank Aaron, Gretzky, Mays
I wouldn't pick Atlanta over St. Louis right now. Not the way Wainwright is pitching.

Granderson went from hitting .300 and 24 HRs to .240 and 41 HRs. He made the average for power trade off. Bautista went from being **** to amazing.

While he does have great stuff, he isn't rated that high. He was the number 51 prospect coming prospect coming into the year. That's the highest I could find.

Garrett Richards? Was there some age standard that Im missing here? I mean he's a good prospect and all, but he's had some brutal starts for the Angels...
Posted Monday August 13, 2012, About: AL CY
So...The logic here is even though Weaver missed five starts and still has three more wins, Verlander has more K's and a **** defense so he should win? Yeah it really sucks to be Verlander, I'd hate to have Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera in my lineup.
The all hype, no talent team was funny, but Howie Kendrick doesn't belong. He's a solid hitter.
Posted Saturday May 26, 2012, About: Sports clubs you would hate to be a fan of..
I had two thoughts immediately when I saw the title:

1) The Cubs

2) Any team from Cleveland

How does the Chargers firing Marty show "california for you"?
The Kings aren't an underdog at all. They should have been there the whole time. They have two extremely talented lines of scoring forwards, depth in their bottom 6 (Stoll, Richardson, Nolan, etc.), and a fantastic goaltender. This is no cinderella team.

A couple thoughts on left's arguments:

1) "nor a number one centre for 3/4 of the season"

What are Kopitar and Richards then? Both of those guys are number one centers. They didn't both miss 3/4 of the season.

2) "they swept the number one seed"

No, they didn't.

I laughed pretty hard when I read that.
Posted Sunday February 12, 2012, About: Greatest current/active American sportsman..
No vote. A-Rod is a ****, not a great sportsman. And I can't rank Woods #1.

That said, right has Roddick way too high and Armstrong is retired, regardless of entering minor races.
I'll be honest, I don't like either list. But i like right's a little better.

My list would have been:

Shea Weber
Evgeni Malkin
Claude Giroux
Someone tell me how Shea Weber is not on this list. Not a single defenseman picked??
Sorry I took so long coming back Dyhard, have a lot of family issues going on right now. I'll just forfeit.
Dyhard, doesn't look like I'm going to have time to finish this for the next day or two. My grandmother is gravely ill, and likely down to her past few days if not hours. I can forfeit this if you want, if not, I'll finish it Thursday or Friday. Sorry man.
