    The Koufax pick was Stark being a jackass publicity hound. He readily admitted Koufax was the best lefty in baseball history on ESPN Radio.

    Is you concede someone's the best, but they're still overrated, to me you're just a jackass splitting hairs. I think that guy in college always parsing and qualifying every little moment of life, and squeezing the juice right out of it.

    That Boras accused Stark of manipulating stats for profiteering was priceless.

    It's blatantly obvious that Boras is convinced that he can get an insane contract for Andruw. As much as I'd like to say "fat chance," he got Boston to pay J.D. Drew, a living heart donor, entirely too much money.

    Psst, Scott ... Andruw Jones was never Willie Mays. Ken Griffey Jr. was the closest, and too many injuries quashed that.

    STFU, Boras. Wait ... don't. I want to see Jayson Stark continue to cook your sorry a_s.

    Ryan, like Kevin Brown, was one of those guys who got notoriously poor run support.

    That should have been the stat Jayson was locking in on.

    It certainly seems intellectually dishonest.
  9. But if Ryan had poor run support, so did the other pitchers on his staff. He still should have had more wins than them, right?

    Saw several of Ryan's games when I was a pup. Yes, there was poor run support, but as dominating as he was, Ryan would throw in a bases-loaded walk, a wild pitch and an error (he wasn't a good fielder) in a 2-1 or 3-1 loss. For many years, Tanana was the better pitcher on an offensively challenged team.

    It's quite possible you are right, but since you weren't there to watch them, what are you basing your unequivocal opinion upon?

    It does not mean that at all.
