Jim, I enjoy reading your posts very much and find them well-reasoned
and extremely informative.
They are, after all, opinions, and are presented as such.
God, what would ANY sport be without its fans arguing the merits of its players? I wiled away entire YEARS of my youth arguing Mantle vs. Mays in the late 50's and early 60's -- and loved every second of it! If memory serves, there was never a requirement on the block that you had to have played in the major leagues to voice a point of view -- only that you could defend it intelligently and accurately.
Keep it up!
