That's the articles title is it not?  I thought it was a very interesting read.  I assume NOTLD posted it since he's the only one who updates the news regularly.

You are correct. I did that. For those of you who don't know, I post those little news bits up there. No I am not a moderator and I do not have any special privileges or access to your accounts. I simply update the news for the Chief. I am an "Office nag" of sorts. ;)

Anyways, I thought that article was outstanding and decided to post it since it is in the current ESPN Magazine. That isn't the article's original title (and I didn't like the original title, "Tick, Tick, Tick") so I read it through and named it something I think is more than appropriate for it.

If you haven't read it, do because it is actually quite in depth about both Duke's criminal and sports past.

Power = Milledge
Contact = Logan
Speed = Logan
Defense = Logan

Milledge has ZERO power.

Yeah 2k6, I'd say that category is a wash. Nook with the clean sweep.

I don't see any "potential" out of Lastings. Nothing.  All he has going for him is his age. That's hilarious in a sad sort of way.

I honestly believe that Milledge can be a good player, but I don't know if it's gonna happen in Washington. We don't have a decent hitting coach that can work with him. He has regressed as the season has went on.

Ehh, Milledge could hit ten homers in a season, feasibly...Nook hit one in a half-season of regular duty, and it was a lucky slapshot in Coors.

On a positive note, Joel looks pretty good today.  Teams can't hit him, and if he could ever control the walks, he will be golden.

10? I don't see it. He hasn't hit a HR since March 31st.  He'll be lucky to hit 5 bombs at this pace.

Milledge won't approach 10 homers.  5 if he's lucky.

The game was meaningless.  Joel is fine when the game is out reach.  He chokes like crap when he's in a tight game.

The O's have the best bullpen in the majors.

Nice hit, Guzman! Need something huge here from Zimmerman. Double would work. Then a homer by Dmitri. That's all I'm asking for.

Shawn Hill gets a cortisone shot and might miss his next start. *SIGH*
