2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)How did you get into baseball?
(Sam from San Antonio)
Last question tonight.

I was raised on baseball. My parents took me to my first game when I was two (I heard them on the radio before that), and some of my first memories are watching Pudge, Rusty Greer, and the other Rangers of that era. Hot sun and red dirt has been a part of my existence as long as I could remember, and so it seemed only natural that as I grew older, that passion and love for the game morphed into a fascination with the mechanics of it: Why is this this player better? What makes this guy worth more money? What is a good decision by a DM? What is a good pitch? How can you quantify this? How can you qualify this? Where is the game still growing? Where are the analytics still growing?
The best thing about baseball is that the answers to those questions are still changing, still being molded and shaped by our further understanding of the game. We'll never know everything there is to know, and that is poetically beautiful. (Kate Morrison)
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wikipedia's list of position players who have had Tommy John surgery: Rocco Baldelli, Joe Borchard, Shin-Soo Choo, Chris Denorfia, Rusty Greer, Luis Gonzalez, Matt Holliday, Norris Hopper, Cezar Izturis, Kelly Johnson, Xavier Nady, and Vance Wilson. Also, Jose Canseco could be included but doesn't really count since he blew out his arm while pitching.
(Gump from nyc)
Jimmy Wales is a great guy, but .... man, that's a really incomplete list. (Will Carroll)
