Rob Neyer is a god. A god with waaaay too much time on his hands. But a god nevertheless.

I would just refer everyone to Neyer's new book, which is very good.

Well, I mentioned this nearly a month ago and nobody seemed to notice. I think Neyer is great, but not so a lot of others on this board.

Mark Grace as the All-Time Cubs first baseman?

Sorry folks, but that's just stupid.

Hey! Not so fast, pieman! I bought Neyer's book primarily because of your recommendation (well, yours and Bill James). So be sure to check your mailbox, because that commission check from Amazon.com should be arriving any day now.

Yeah, becuase he ONLY had more hits than anyone in baseball for about a decade AND was probably the best defensive first baseman at the time too.

Thanks for the recommendation of the Neyer book. I picked it up earlier today, and it is a very addictive read.

Brian Anderson is our 3rd-best pitcher? Gee that's depressing, I would've figured Batista, but he's only been since 2001 and a lot of pen appearances might've been it.

Damn, the Cubs have had so much talent on their teams. Sad really. I grew up with Cubs baseball when Eckersley, Sutcliffe, Moyer, and Maddux were pitching (Moyer was my hero, talked to me for a while when he signed a baseball of mine). They also had Grace, Sandberg and Shawn Dunston. Just a lot of good players none of whom played well at the same time.

Of course, I blamed it all on the GM.

Frank Chance
Cap Anson

Also: Bill Buckner actually WON a batting title and managed to drive in 100 runs. Could Grace EVER say that? No. Could he hit useless singles in already won/olst games? Sure. That was his talent.

Some pure idiots have tried to call Mark Grace better than Rafael Palmeiro because Grace had the useless stat of most hits in a ten-year gap. COMPARE THE STATS THAT COUNT. Runs, rbi...Palmeiro is a million times the player Grace ever was..

As a matter of fact, even LEON DURHAM was more productive over a couple years time as Cubs 1b than Grace ever was.

Defensive first baseman are damn near useless when you are talking a difference in a .996 FA and a .993 FA....

Blauser as shortstop for Braves instead of Furcal? Sure Blauser set the single season hit by pitch record, but I'd have to say Furcal is a MUCH better choice.

Perhaps Youppi! will be used as compensation for the Orioles, who can then use him as an upgrade over Lee Mazzilli as manager.
