If the Rays deal Kotchman, who might play first base for them? Damon?…DanJo?…Joyce?
Ok, seriously guys, how do I ask a question in one of these chats?
They usually start around noon. If you’re here at that time, than the interface if different. If you come at 2, it’s done and the replay is here to read.
That’s what I assumed. And you mean noon ET right? Damn, I have to wake up at 9 AM.
When evaluating VOSCAR+, I think you really have to change the “positions”. So Jeter’s replacement should be “other team captain” or “most famous guy on team”. You have to compare him to people like Pujols and so forth. Jeter should get some bonus points for being fairly unattractive and still getting seriously play, but he’s got a high bar to clear being captain of the most famous franchise in sports.
Along these lines, crappy pitchers shouldn’t be compared to team aces. They should only be compared to other crappy pitchers.
And ugly crappy pitchers. Now they have a low floor, giving them huge upside VOSCAR+ potential.
This all leads to Brad Penny having to be a clear cut VOSCAR+ stud. Alyssa Milano? Eliza Dushku? Now marrying Karina Smirnoff? I don’t even know how you do it, but hats off to you, Brad Penny.
Brad Penny is an excellent call. He definitely gets my nod. I also think VOSCAR should adjust for the market/team you play for. If you’re in LA you have a better chance at hooking up with a celeb(Like Penny did when he was there and recently Kemp with Rihanna), same thing in NY, so if you can pull off a hot celeb while playing for a smaller market team that should be worth major bonus points.
The chat needed more Sweet Chen Music, and I agree that Penny is the VOSCAR+ front runner.
