    Re: Pick a Chicago Outfield

    My only comment on this will be that anyone that doesn't pick Carlos Quentin may be functionally ********.

    Dye was a really close call for me. He's still 35.

    I had a hard time between Dye and Bradley. I chose Dye since Bradley can't stay healthy for a full season.

    No love for Jerry Owens?

    I picked Fukudome over Dye because Soriano playing center would make me vomit.

    Re: Pick a Chicago Outfield

    Keep these coming, kind of neat. Milton Bradley is hard to pick, but hard not to pick.

    If there's a car-shaped obstacle in the middle of the outfield to navigate around, I'll take Joey Gathright.

    Comic gold! Nicely done sir. I still don't know how people do that.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I would like anyone to give me one good reason why you didn't pick Soriano or Quentin.

    I can't


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Pick a Chicago Outfield

    1 person did not pick Soriano and 7 did not pick Quentin. Either one plays 162 games and they are their league's respective MVPs.

    Re: Pick a Chicago Outfield

    The biggest knock on Soriano is his contract. By the time 2014 rolls around, someone will be paying $18mil for a guy who could have creaky knees and a slow bat.
