I'm going to have to go against the majority and go with Beckett here. I think Prior is being overused right now and is at risk of being worn down by Baker. In a couple of years he's probably going to be a shell of his former self and will likely be shipped off to some team in hopes of rejuvinating his career (possibly the Padres).

Beckett on the other hand should have a more lasting career and IMO has the mentality to be a force in the playoffs. I wouldn't be surprised to see him end his career with a couple of World Series Rings.

LOL, yeah I did. I was hoping to catch a few people off guard before someone caught on. :-b :-D

It's more like 5 years old though. It's really crappy weather outside right now (we've gotten about 4 inches of snow in a couple of hours here in South Dakota). I had plans tonight but I can't go anywhere with the weather so crappy. I was hoping for a good laugh while I'm just sitting here in my dorm room.

Nice.

So now that Saddam Hussein has been recently deposed, do you expect (along with everyone else) a leveling off of oil prices? Maybe a return to $20/barrel by 2006 and moving forward?

Also, the Phillies have this rookie 2B by the name of Utley. How do you think he'll turn out?
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
