  1. You can call and they'll check a list for you. I suggest doing so. What number do I call?
  2. I highly doubt that 87,000 different individuals registered for this. When people say they got rejected, it means that they probably got rejected on all 6 e-mail accounts that they used. Having said that, I suspect it's pretty damn likely that those people haven't heard yet have been picked (unless you are a total dumbass and mis-typed your e-mail address when entering). To be honest, I thought I had misspelled my email or something until I read that others here haven't heard back either. Maybe I'm still a dumbass but it's a little less likely all three of us are.
  3. Still no e-mail saying I was rejected :o nothing yet on my end either :o I haven't gotten an email yet either. Weird.
  4. Name a better one. And not, "I am afraid of running into the fence" Heyward. Off the top of my head, Justin Upton, Andres Torres, and Jay Bruce are all head and shoulders better. Heyward is probably better as well. He's pretty good, and he really came on toward the end of the year, but it's hyperbole to say he's the best in the League. Andres Torres was a scrub before last year ... Justin Upton has never been able to put it together and Jay Bruce hasn't done it for more than one year. Lol.

Heyward is probably better as well. He's pretty good, and he really came on toward the end of the year, but it's hyperbole to say he's the best in the League. Among RFers who played at least 700 Innings, he ranked 5th in the MLB in UZR/150. So he's pretty good. But it's also one year, and he wasn't really talked about as a super plus plus defender coming up, so it's hard to say. Anywhere to see that for free? Where do those 4 I listed rank?

  7. Wait, did he just call Mike Stanton the best defensive RFer in the League?
  8. Mallet.. talented strong arm Quarterback troubled by character questions.... when did this work out for Miami in the past? :whistle You may have forgotten that they(and a bunch of other teams) passed on drafting Randy Moss for that reason. And look how that turned out.:whistle Miami picked 8 slots behind Minnesota The Dolphins had the 19th pick that year(2 spots in front of the Vikings), traded it to Green Bay....FWIW... http://en.wikipedia..../1998_NFL_Draft Moss was drafted 21st and the Dolphins were one of the 20 teams that passed on him, Trading the pick still constitutes passing on him. Pretty sure they traded the pick several days before the draft.
  9. So for those that said not to worry about the long losing streak because it is only spring training, it may be worth rethinking that line of reasoning. Did you even read the article?
  10. Hate on the Rays all you want, all I know is that I straight **** on people with David Price on The Show.
  11. Pretty sure Gboro played 2 games.
  12. Id put West ahead of Miller right now. West has a consistent delivery, better control, and his velo is right there if not better than Millers. Just so its clear. Andrews' MiLB line: 3.08 ERA, 7.7 H/9, 0.3 HR/9, 3.5 BB/9, 8.0 K/9 Wests' MiLB line: 3.46 ERA, 8.3 H/9, 0.9 HR/9, 3.8 BB/9, 9.6 K/9 Andrews' MLB line: 5.50 ERA, 9.7 H/9, 0.7 HR/9, 5.0 BB/9, 7.2 K/9 Wests' MLB line: 4.91 ERA, 8.7 H/9, 1.1 HR/9, 4.6 BB/9, 4.7 K/9
  13. Jason Vargas was never considered an elite pitcher like Andrew Miller. I don't think you realize how young 24 years old is. I mean, you say it as if has a couple of years left in the big leagues. Like I said, even the great Randy Johnson didn't figure it out till he was 26. I see that you are sticking with "he's still young." Jason Vargas might not have been billed quite as highly as Miller was (however, as I've insinuated, Miller's reputation might have been unfounded), but he was a second round pick, had amazing success in the minors, and was a BA top ten for the Marlins. And this Randy Johnson comparison is laughable. Johnson didn't receive innings in the majors until the age of 25, which negates your point completely. And he had a solid minor league career. Johnson did not struggle whatsoever to the extent Miller has. All that Miller and Johnson have in common is that they are both LHP. That doesn't negate his point at all. In fact, it makes his point for him. Johnson had 3 full seasons to develop before he pitched to big leaguers. And it wasnt pretty. At 22, Randy walked 94 batters in 119.2 innings. The next year he walked 128 in 140 innings. After that, 72 in 113. So yes, he struggled. He didn't find any control until he was 29. Andrew could've used a few seasons to figure it out too, but his contract all but guaranteed that wouldnt happen. Is he still a cant miss top end starter? Probably not. But he still could be a solid #2 or very good #3. I dont think you trade an Andrew for a Heath Bell when you've got a 'pen as good as we have.
  14. Pittsburgh shipped this centerfielder over to Washington for an outfielder (Milledge) who has pretty much proven that he's not going to make it in the majors. Morgan is proving to be what the Marlins dreamed of having in Maybin. Why didn't the Marlins grab that fellow? Hermida may have been acceptable payment. (Remember Milledge? He was the Washington centerfielder that played two fairly routine flyball outs by Bonifacio into an inside the part homer and triple during the first couple games of the season). I think most hope that Maybin can be a .370/.430/.800 guy with excellent defense and developing power. Morgan has likely reeached his ceiling as a .700-.750 player.
