2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, what are PECOTA's comps for Billy Crystal? ;) (But seriously: He didn't look that bad out there, to these eyes. Are we that far away from when medical science gives us 59-60 year-old ball players?)

...I think we're still pretty far away from seniors ballplayers, but it's not out of the realm of possibility some decades hence. If I'm still here answering questions then, remind me that you were ahead of the curve. (Steven Goldman)
