Chipper's really an outstanding, oldschool type player. You rarely see people who spend their entire career with one team anymore. His HoF chances are iffy at best. He'd need at least 2 more seasons to get to 500 home runs and/or 3000 hits, which is pretty much what he'll need. Especially with all the 90's/early 2000's players with steroid inflated stats all retiring and eligble on the ballot.
He was named to the All-Star team several days ago and is a sure 1st ballot HOFer in my opinion.

I agree, Chipper is a first ballot Hall of Famer.

That has to be one of the worst non-trade panic moves in recent memory.

Gotta keep selling tickets even though the team is nine out of the wildcard!

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Eh, he hit a double on his first at bat.* I certainly agree, if he is feeling uncomfortable, he shouldn't be playing, but there's no reason to think he didn't want to return.

* Granted, the team lost 5-0, but Ryan Howard isn't close to a cure for the problems that ail this team.

For once, I agree with a Braves fan. Mets have had a nice week, and still lost ground I think.

It would be a sign of the apocalypse if the Nats (nee Expos) played Pittsburgh in the playoffs, not to mention a ratings disaster.

Well, the Cubs have won 9 of their last 13. [Lovie] All the pieces are in place [/Lovie]

I just hope, when they trade Dempster (and they will after 5 more scoreless innings today), that they don't bring Volstad back up to take his place on the roster.

Volstad's still on the major league roster. Once they dump either Garza or Dempster, I imagine they'll call up Alberto Cabrera and give him some innings as the fifth starter. I'm not sure when that will happen, though: The Braves were reportedly going hard after Garza, and the response from Epstein and Hoyer was that they could have him for a box of baseballs as long as they took Soriano, too.

Volstad was optioned to AAA-Iowa. I don't think that he's still on the major league roster, but what do I know?

As far as the Garza/Soriano idea, if it means they don't have to pay for Sori's remaining contract, it might be acceptable.

^ Speaking of KC:

Frank White has a hissy fit.

And the weather scares the shit out of the Twins and Rangers:

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Tony La Russa selected Matt Cain to start for the NL in the All-Star Game. Why? Because he was concerned about Posey catching an unfamiliar pitcher (Dickey).

Seriously.

Not joking.

La Russa then began claiming that Dickey will pitch at some point, but only to Ruiz (which makes no sense, it isn't like the Phillies have knuckleballers). Half of the press conference was various reporters blasting him over this, to the point that Cain himself said it made no sense.

Man, La Russa isn't just a troll -- he's just a straight-up jackass.
