I thought it was about time he got some recognition for what he's doing right now. In my opinion he's the best pitcher in the league right now. I keep waiting for him to come down to earth but it's not happening.

You'd have to go back to Ron Guidry to see domination at this level.

pitchers are killing it this year. Looks like less and less hitters are taking roids.

Eras always flop, before roids there were pitching eras and hitting eras. All about adjustments.





























AND ROIDS.

I think it is pretty safe to say though that the cleaner hitters are getting, the better the pitching will look.

Pitchers were juiced up too though, and roids heal injuries as much as enhance performance. Two way street don't you think?

You think roids had a disproportionate effect for hitters?

101 MPH fastballs are half ass impossible to hit I don't care what drugs you taken fool.

Yes, I think batters had more of an advantage on roids. Wouldn't you say the numbers support that? I mean Randy Johnson and Nolan Ryan were throwing 100mph heaters with no roids. I understand both sides will probably benefit equally from healing from injuries but I think more muscle/power give more of an advantage to your hitting then it does throwing.

You a rockies fan LA?

Wouldn't increased muscle mean a better fastball? Also, injuries in baseball effect pitchers much more than other positions save probably catcher.

I agree wolf. Roids were just as important for pitching.

It's very solid, I'm gonna PM you on something though, not a trade.

You and Timbo have a very good chance at winning this league
