    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    I'll take the over. I am surprised he would play in the WBC with his injury history.

    Re: Chipper Jones

    Definitely over 25, without a doubt. He has to take his sporadic days off, too, so you have to factor that in. I'm thinking the Braves would be lucky to have him for 120 games.

    This is a shame. He is truly one of the great guys of baseball. I hope he can stay healthy.

    BTW, that was a sweet game last night huh?

    Also, unsung player of the game: Shane Victorino. Helluva game, and he got almost no credit.

    Over. They will probably sit him quite a few games even without injury given his age/injury history.

    Victorino reminds my of Dykstra when he played in Philly, only without the 'roids (hopefully). The guy is tough and just flat out makes plays. Those are the type of guys that I like to root for.

    What? I'm here... I "hope" chipper plays about 145 games missing the occasional planned day off... He could play through what he has right now if he wanted to...

    Victorino is my favorite player in MLB right now and it's not really that close... Love that guy. If the USA pulls off the Classic win it will be because of guys like him and DiRosa....
