Haha yeah, this isn't exactly the place (or the thread, sorry for changing the topic) for a politcal debate, but I must beg to differ on your claim that Reagan is the best president of the 20th century. I might even go as far to say he was one of the worse.
Imagine my surprise when I come in here for info on Pujos (I can't afford to lose him too long ) And I find a political debate and an Astros lovefest!
1) Reagan was the greatest Roosevelt #2. Reasons? Reagan ended the cold war and defeated our greatest threat at the time. He brought our economy back from the brink of ruin under Carter (see: misery index). He re-instilled faith in America and the American military. He showed that reducing taxes increases revenue. Roosevelt guided our country through two of our greatest times of trial, the Great Depression and WWII. The reason I drop him below Reagan is his legacy of Big-Goverment that lives to this day.
2) Biggio will make the Hall but it won't be in the first few years. Bags has a way to go to prove he belongs. How many firstbasemen are there with his kind of stats? Fred Mcgriff will have a tough time even if he makes 500 homers. Berkman? too soon, he needs to show consistancy for quite a few more years.
