I'll take Gallardo versus Lincecum, but I don't have a sig. I could take an avatar bet, if a Giants fan was up to it.

I read you said wins wouldn't be part of the equation, but what will be? How are we evaluating these guys? xERA? FIP?

i don't care what we use as long as lincecum doesnt get penalized because the brewers have an infinitely better offense than the giants...an avatar bet is fine, or you could request someone make you a sig

Nope. I think you are right B-)


I have a feeling most of us would agree on that one. Why then are so many folks rigid about Pujols being the unquestioned #2 pick I wonder?


Wow, before I read about Pujols' injury, I probably would have taken you up on that one.

Haha, and here I was suggesting FIP or xERA so Gallardo doesn't get penalized for the Brewers defense. Giants offense, Brewers defense, deficiencies all around!

Eh, it's not like this matters that much, let's just look at ERA, WHIP, and K/BB for simplicity. I guess we'll just have to make a judgment call based on how those numbers look, possibly with 3rd party input.

And as of now, an avatar bet would work. However, if anyone's bored and feels up to making some sort of sweet Brew Crew sig for me, I'd be down with that too.

If Dice-K outperforms Kazmir the Sox will win 115 games....


No way, after Beckett's year last year.

I had a go. This probably looks like crap, but use it if you like it.

You know what's worse?
Have you ever heard Ben Sheets talk?
They interviewed him at the home run derby, and it's like he drove to the game in this.
