Re: Is Dusty Rhodes Overrated?

Dusty is basically a wind god I think. Most of the time his powers fail and the wind blows in, causing him to have to hit balls up the middle. Every so often his powers work and the wind blows out at 95 mph and he hits it out.

Re: Is Dusty Rhodes Overrated?

It's a Hall of Fame. Not a Hall of WAR. Writers would have lots of arguments that Rhodes is overrated, but there would be plenty of people on the other side pointing out that he has not a special but unique skill that few players in the history of the game have ever had. I think you missed the highe...

Re: Is Dusty Rhodes Overrated?

Equally important question back: are Ozzie Smith and Lou Brock Hall of Famers? We're never going to properly perceive an Ozzie in this game, but does Mr. Backflip make the cut for you? Like I said above, I'm honestly not sure how I vote in Rhodes' case. I tend to have a foot in the "best player" bo...

Re: Is Dusty Rhodes Overrated?

But what if you're a player who's played for 14 years and had just three seasons below a .320 batting average? Instead of a meaningless stat, isn't that quite telling? I love his case because that's the question it asks. The answer the modern world is coming to seems to be "no," it's not quite tell...

Re: Is Dusty Rhodes Overrated?

I read everything you wrote, and I'm not sold. If his biggest problems were that he played first base and that he didn't draw quite enough walks or hit enough doubles then you're simply discounting his regular excellence. The reason why batting average "doesn't matter" is because of wild fluctuation...

Good piece. I made my moves before the deadline, as I usually do, so little surprise I didn't push.

Re: 2039, Trade Deadline/Sim #22 Chatter

Hard to be upset about Palacios's deal. There's a ticking timer on the Rockville dynasty, but the core should be solid for the next few years.

Rockville Offering Cash For Pitching Prospects

If you have a pitching prospect with a potential rating of 45 or above, I'd be interested in trading cash for that guy.

Let me know if this interests you and we'll talk.

Re: 2039, Sim #18 Chatter

This is the kind of thing that needs more consideration when we vote GM of the year. Both what Calgary is doing by going for it and what Brooklyn is talking about. I think a lot of people are too risk averse. Prospects burn out all the time. It blows to see some kid absolutely killing it in AA or A...

First in the power rankings. Nail in the coffin for the division maybe. Did you hear the sigh of relief wherever it is that you live?
