Bottom line, for whatever reason(s) Mr. Wood is 67-50 lifetime since 1998 (6 seasons). That is not a very good winning percentage or a high win total for a guy over 6 seasons (< 12 Ws a season) and on a team that was in contention for a number of those years.

Yeah, we've had this argument before. I just didn't know other people also held this opinion.

Here are few I just came up with, and a couple that I just really like:

JT "what, are you waiting for it to" Snow "in SF before you score?" (2003: :~( )
Mark "thrown-out-from-right-field!" Portugal
Ruben "the biggest idiot in the world other than Rico" Rivera - this one isnt clever, but its so true it hurts :-b
Neifi "why are you in the majors?" Perez
Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez - this one's just really cool, IMO
George "douche-bag" Steinbrenner - this is coming from a Yankees fan, too.
Nomar "schizo" Garciaparra, aka "Tic, tic, tic, swing"
