Dumbest thing ever said on Baseball 2night....

BB Tonight needs a guy like Mark Grace. Someone who is extremely knowledgable and actually has a sense of humor (Kruk's doesn't reach a large portion of the audience and HR's is way too dry)

baseball 2nite crew ranking:

1) t. kurkjian
2) j. brantley
3) h. reynolds
4) p. gammons
5) j. kruk


Brantley is the worse of them all. I can't stand him on baseball tonight and when he does games.

Look, everyone will say something and it won't always happen like they said. They are not perfect. Brantley for example said last year that Escobar was the worse signing in the offseason. Said the Angels way overpaid for him, well he was wrong. Should I hate him solely for saying somethign I disagreed with then, no. I should hate him because hes always looking a foot or two away from the camera and it just looks weird. He also, has nothing interesting to say.

His reasoning for hating the Escobar trade was because he looked at his numbers vs. the AL West and they weren't pretty. Mainly ERA, however, what he didn't look at was his splits on turf and grass and I believe Escobar played the AL West in Toronto 3/4 of the time.

Stupidest thing uttered on BBT:

Paraphrased, Kruk says the Angels have the best rotation in the AL West because they can put John Lackey in the #4 spot, a guy who won Game 7. Apparently, Kruk disregards his 4.6+ ERA the last two years.

Who has the best rotation in the AL West according to you? I don't think you can argue, no one has a great rotation in the AL West. Oak has no ace (Zito is no ace, he is no better or worse than Colon). The sad thing is those 2 guys are probably the 2 best pitchers in the division.

Seattle doesn't have the best, and Tex definately doesn't. It's between Oak and Ana, and I may be a homer, but I'd take the Angels' rotation over Oak, right now. In 2 years, it may be different, but right now the Angels in my eyes have the best staff in the division.

1/3 of the way through the 2004 season, based on his high wins total:

Kruk: "Paul Wilson is the front runner for the NL Cy Young."

I'd take Colon, Escobar, Washburn and Byrd over whatever 5 man filth the M's could scrape together

Dumbest thing ever said on Baseball Tonight is probably something like...

Toward the end of last season, Kruk said that Curt Schilling should win the Cy Young over Johan Santanta because "he's got more wins. Whoever wins the most games should get the Cy Young," totally ignoring ERA, run support, caliber of team, etc.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
