[QUOTE="duxup"][QUOTE="CleanPlayer"]Get rid of the DH, make the pitcher hit. That's what I'd change. CleanPlayer
I would agree with that. The DH is pure garbage.

I agree, DH is a disgrace! There is no need for it, it limits some players to only being a single tool which is hitting...and that depresses me

Yar. If you got say a Bonds on your team (well hopefully not an embarrassment himself kind of Bonds....) you should suffer him in the field as well if you want to play him. That always makes a game more interesting.

[QUOTE="biggest_loser"]

There is a rumour that its been pushed back to the end of 2012.

I am really looking forward to seeing this movie so thats disappointing.

EMOEVOLUTION
Oh well. I'd rather wait.. then get a bad movie.

Yar, after LOTR they've got some big expectations to meet.

The lack of flappers at the end was a bit disappointing, but still a fun video.

[QUOTE="Zamboni0721"]

That is simply operating income, which is total income from day-to-day operations (i.e., ticket sales, concessions). To view the top earners of the year, you're going to want to click on revenues, which tallies everything including sponsorship deals and other non-daily revenues as well. This list will more accurately reflect the status of the league. The Yankees' payroll in 2009 was 201,449,189 according to MLBcontracts. This is more than almost 80% of the other teams in the MLB earned.

No, I purposefully chose income to highlight how much more money clubs like Florida could be spending. The Marlins could double payroll and still be turning a profit. While this obviously wouldn't put them at the same payroll level as the Yankees, Red Sox, etc... it would put them in the company of teams like the Giants and Cardinals.

So you just chose a set of numbers that fit your argument :P

I recall Steinbrenner saying himself that their TV network makes more money from televising Yankee's games than they do day to day operations at the ballpark.

Rebuttal: there's no such thing as a poor owner.

The problem isn't that the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, Angels, etc. spend a lot. The real problem is that the Pirates, Marlins, etc. spend so little.

Fun fact: the franchise with the highest income in 2008 was the Florida Marlins. Others cracking the top 10 include low spending Nationals, Rays, Twins, and Athletics. The Yankees were second to last.

Is that purely based on income directly from attendance? I can't find any details but that is almost what it looks like.

[QUOTE="jg4xchamp"] I blame Childress for calling a bootleg pass....come on now? really?

That was exactly the right call, he gave the QB room to throw with even room to jog to get plenty of yardage...

He had an amazing season. I don't see why he would NOT come backlimpbizkit818
Yar, there is every reason to come back, no reason not to.
