  4. Most Dominant Pitcher In This Era?

    Just a little food for discussion! As much as I like Roger Clemens I'd have to say the most dominant pitcher of his era is Randy Johnson. He is another physical phenom who is still throwing 'em in the upper 90's. He's done something that only one other pitcher in history has done and that's win 4 Cy Youngs in a row. He also won pitching's equivalent of the triple crown with wins, ERA and strikeouts. Incredible for a guy who is approaching 40. He is a fierce competitor who doesn't give in and...

  11. I'm Just Curious

    How do you all like the results of the recent MLB Players contract? I am sure the players did not realize the impact the luxury tax would have on keeping down their salaries. I'm not sure if some of the owners wouldn't still spend what it takes to field a winner, but the luxury tax allows them to really hold down contracts without the fear of a collusion charge. Frankly I felt salaries were getting way out of line and anything that can slow or better still retard their growth is fine...

  16. Mets to try weather- and opponent-related flex tix pricing in '03

    Seems like a very unique concept, to say the very least, but that's what they're doing. I'm unsure how they'll determine which team is "better" (standings??? Eenie-meenie-minie-mo???), but that's their battle plan. :D :) Good weather and good teams to cost more at Shea Nov. 22, 2002 SportsLine.com wire reports NEW YORK -- The better the opponent and the warmer the weather, the more the New York Mets will charge for tickets.
