DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)In terms of perfection, isn't there a saying, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones? Who's your favorite past and current ML'er?
(Gary from Also a pyschologist)
I'm taking it as a personal mission to get Chase Utley an MVP award at some point. I grew up thinking that Joe Carter was the greatest human being ever. Yay Cleveland! (Russell A. Carleton)
2008-01-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Sheehan recently picked Jeff Francoeur as his top breakout candidate for 2008...what do you think?
(uptick from St. Louis, MO)
Joe and I have been arguing about baseball for 15 years now, and for all the stereotypes that exist about sabermetric "groupthink", we rarely see eye-to-eye on a lot of topics. (Don't get Joe started on my theories for winning at altitude, for instance.)

But when it comes to Frenchy, I agree. A year ago Francoeur looked like the new Joe Carter, with the 100+ RBIs and the sub-.300 OBP. But he made a lot of progress last year, and he's just 24, the same age Carter was as a rookie. Francoeur's .338 OBP last year is nothing to write home about, but do you know how many times Carter had an OBP that high? Try zero. None. Nil. Nada. (Rany Jazayerli)
2008-01-22 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Rice more deserving than Joe Carter? Substantially if yes?
(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
Yes, he is. I was very proud of the voters when they dismissed Carter's candidacy early on in the process. They didn't fall for the RBI illusion. Rice's career EqA is 21 points higher than Carter's. (Jim Baker)
