I'll agree with you on that .. I wonder if we could nominate "Tommy John" for the Nobel Peace prize in science ...?

Good job wrveres, You went and attacked my intelligence level, everyone and their mother attacked yours, and then a moderator got involved. Stop researching my intelligence your making me feel figuratively naked. I do agree with you though. I don't employ tact. No need to beat around the bush when you know your always right. Somehow I think you know what I mean ;)

On the subject of Cubs pitchers. I am cautious about scolding about when pitch counts get high because most of these guys are treated like babies nowadays. I'm sure dusty feels the same way. I wouldn't do it with a surgically repaired arm though.

You have to remember that Dusty baker is the guy that allowed his son to almost get trampled by major leaguers scoring at home in the playoffs because he didn't have the brain to make a valuable decision to keep his child who is too young to be aware out of harms way.

Maybe all the cubs pitchers will be fine and glory will befall cubbie nation. If they start getting injured mark my words Dusty and Jeff Torborg will start their own fishing show while Jack Mckeon calls up one of his friends at the nursing home to come in and lead the blue bears.

Bring that blood pressure down a couple notches captain "FO". I know your chomping at the bit to tell me where to go. Before you do lemme tell ya I enjoy your posts. They're a refreshing change from the normal mindless banter. At least reading one of your posts I know there's some credibility there, even though you and I both know, credibility speaks for itself.

How does one go about making that kind of money at fantasy baseball anyway? I don't doubt it but I wasn't aware of it.

Just to get back to the original subject, as someone who watches alot of Jr. Cubbie baseball Wellemeyer, Francis Beltran and Matt Bruback all have outstanding arms. Wellemeyer's stats this year came from 3 RP. (Also, he did get one save against the Brew Crew).

But sorry Arlo, Steve Smyth wouldn't have a good pitch if he were a used car salesman. We need to package him in something to somewhere.

And just two more names to keep your eye on Bobby Brownlie at Dayton (A) and Andy Sisco and Lansing (A). Both will probably end up in a trade before they make it to the "show", they will make it and they will be good.

You can play for whatever prize fund you want. You just have to have a big entrance fee. As a example, get 20 teams to ante up $100 per team. Then charge for transactions, which are trades, pickups, dl moves. Using this example, you would be around a $4,000 prize fund, providing the service you use charges around $150.

Whats horrible about it? Dont people ususally spend time and $ with their hobbies they love? Besides, a big entry fee discourages kids and novices from entering. So you get the best of both worlds, higher competition, and a cash bonus.
