• If you lived in Chicago, and had to cheer for Cubs or White Sox—Who would you pick?

  • Why do people not like their home teams anymore?

    Best answer: A lot of it has to do with the fact that professional sports teams by-and-large do not represent the cities anymore. Chicago is an exception because most of its teams are embedded in the city but the fact that the players, coaches, and oftentimes owners have no connections with the city creates an empty... show more
    Best answer: A lot of it has to do with the fact that professional sports teams by-and-large do not represent the cities anymore. Chicago is an exception because most of its teams are embedded in the city but the fact that the players, coaches, and oftentimes owners have no connections with the city creates an empty relationship that literally only hangs on because of 'tradition'.

  • Who is the most overrated power in hitter in MLB in 2018 between Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton?

    Best answer: Neither one is overrated in my book. But so far in 2018 Harper has 19 HR's in 245 at bats, that's averaging a HR every 12.8 times at bat. Stanton has 16 HR's in 266 at bats, that's averaging a HR every 16.6 times at bats. But in their career Stanton has 283 HR's in 3843 at bats, that's... show more

  • Should Omar Vizquel be in the Hall of Fame?

    Best answer: Yes, but not on his first ballot. He got 2,800 hits and 11 Gold Gloves, but he doesn't have the big numbers like a lot of home runs or RBIs, but defense is important, too, and he was consistent on both sides of the field. perhaps in the next 3 years or so.

  • Does Pete Rose deserve to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame despite allegations? How about OJ Simpson for football?

    Best answer: Rose has admitted to gambling on baseball so the "allegations" are fact.
    Simpson is a dumb motherclucker but at least he was smart enough to wait until his playing days were over before reverting to ghetto mode.
    That makes him smarter than Rose, but that's not saying much.

  • Why The Mark McGwire-Sammy Sosa Home Run Battle Of 1998 Changed The Baseball World Or MLB Forever?

    Best answer: Well, first it was Barry Bonds, then others tried to emulate them. Take a look at the stats-Homeruns and Strikeouts have both increased as more and more hitters swing for the fences. Prior to the chase, the single season record was 189 strikeouts in a season-That's since the begin of the league. Since that... show more
    Best answer: Well, first it was Barry Bonds, then others tried to emulate them. Take a look at the stats-Homeruns and Strikeouts have both increased as more and more hitters swing for the fences. Prior to the chase, the single season record was 189 strikeouts in a season-That's since the begin of the league. Since that time, 27 players have struck out more times in a season. This year alone, we have five players who are on pace to eclipse that mark. Joey Gallo already has 109. He's on pace for 235 strikeouts, which would be 12 more than any other player in the history of MLB.

    We are now at 8.56 strikeouts per game per team. That's two full strikeouts more than the 1998 season. Batting average has dropped 21 points. This year looks to be the lowest league batting average since 1972. We also have the lowest hit total since 1968.

    Yes, 1998 was exciting to watch. But with more and more hitters swinging for the fences, it makes for some bad baseball.

  • Baltimore's Bench Davis?

    Best answer: Will any team be interested in him in the future? Not at that price. The guy's hitting a buck fifty with 4 homers in 207 at bats. Aledmys Diaz has more homers that Davis. So do Chris Young and Denard Span. Boston released Hanlley Ramirez 3 weeks ago and even he has more homers than Davis. Davis is at a point... show more

    Boston released Hanlley Ramirez 3 weeks ago and even he has more homers than Davis.
    Davis is at a point where his skills are declining. Signing him to that contract was a huge mistake and one of the reasons that Baltimore is as bad as they are right now.

  • Which team would a Red Sox fan have supported in the 1976 World Series? The Cincinnati Reds, or the New York Yankees?

    This is a question I'm itching at since it's way before my time. I grew up in Massachusetts to a family of overwhelmingly Red Sox fans, indeed my Dad would remember this era very well. I was even a Red Sox fan growing up. But, I became a Reds fan as a teenager largely because of Ken Griffey Jr. and his... show more
    This is a question I'm itching at since it's way before my time. I grew up in Massachusetts to a family of overwhelmingly Red Sox fans, indeed my Dad would remember this era very well. I was even a Red Sox fan growing up. But, I became a Reds fan as a teenager largely because of Ken Griffey Jr. and his teammates of the 2000's. That gets to my next question, especially for Red Sox fans of the '70's... Were you (or Red Sox fans you knew) rooting for the Reds in the 1976 World Series, despite being beating Boston in '75 because you dislike the Yankees so much with the old northeast rivalry? Or were you pulling for your American League brothers to get back at the Big Red Machine for keeping the Red Sox from finally winning another world series?
