There's not much to explain. I despise Jim Edmonds.

"Old school" experts on radio, TV, or anywhere in MLB.

"Clog the bases"
AVE/RBI/ERA/WIN are most important stats
Fielding percentage shows the defensive value of the player
The batter is 8 for 10 against this pitcher, so he obviously owns him. (Can't you grasp small sample size?)
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

The steroid ERA was kinda rad. I like offense.

There's a fantasy football cafe but they're talking about that throwball abomination.

I hate baseball commentators except Vin Scully. I'd rather listen to vuvuzuelas blaring than Joe Morgan, Joe Buck, and Tim McCarver. I also hate ESPN, but that goes for their shows on all sports obviously.
