Re: John Mallee

Bryant's BB/K has gone from 11.8/30.6 his rookie year to 14.3/19.2 this year. Javy is a bit better in both categories since Mallee has been here.

Re: The Cardinals

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It would never get approved, but the best locations would likely be third teams in NY and LA metros. Texas could absolutely support another team, as well.

Re: Do the Bears have an elite running game?

I'm glad they had a good game running the ball. After six weeks, they almost meet my very lax definition of "elite". Woo! If they manage to keep up this pace, I'll win $40. Twice is in six weeks they've stacked 220+ on some fool. And both required overtime. The stats for this game look a ...
