I don't know Talion - an eye for an eye - isn't that Hammurabi? Or Draco (Draconian)?

I thought it was Draconian law that was the harshest - wasnt that a Jeopardy question the other night?

Olerud has a swing that can be argued as the prettiest in baseball, and where do you have him ranked?

Let Laroche prove he has more than gap power, and maybe he'll be worth a pickup next year, since no matter how good his first half will be, he will tire in his first big league year.
Looking at the ball going over the fence isn't going to help.

Hammurbi also piled the heads of prisoners in piles outside the gates of Babylon. some of us are more civilized than that.

Many compare him to john olerud, that is a pretty good comparison..........


he probly will never hit more than 25 hr in his career(bad for fantasy 1b) but he does have a beautiful stroke and i wouldnt be surpirsed if he become as consistent 15 hr, 320 avg.........

This site is not Japanese Culture Cafe. I know that. But Cornbread Maxwell wants to know. So I want to answer for him.
Upon entering some Temples in Japan, visitors are confronted by a pair of huge wooden statues which represent the Niou, the guardian deities of the Buddha who subjugate all enemies of Buddhism.

This site is Japanese site, But you will see picture from here.

I used the eye for an eye reference and didnt go and murdered the guy and flamed right back. We dont have to be so drama queens in here do we?
