  1. When did Bonds become "may be the greatest player that ever played the game"?

    Don't shoot me for asking. It's no secret that I dislike the guy but when did he start getting all this attention that he may be the greatest that ever played? Was he thought of this way before 2001? Or just since?

  12. Red Sox hire Bill James

    As reported on ESPN by who else, Rob Neyer. He will be an advisor to the team. I always respected James and enjoyed reading his books written as an independent observer. He is an "enemy" now. I don't know what it means in terms of success for Boston down the road, but it certainly can't hurt any team having keen minds in advisory positions.

  20. Should Pitchers be considered for MVP?

    I would like to hear opinions on this.. In my opinion..the answer is no. That's what the CY Young if for..the best pitcher in basball.. It would make sense if pitcher in both leagues hit..and a pitcher had 20 wins..and era of 2.50..and a batting average of 300 with 35 homers and 115 rbi.. But we don't see that...
