Trivia Question of the Day

Q: Since 1990, twelve pitchers in MLB have had 20 win seasons that included 200+ K’s. Can you name them? (Remember, no Google searches)

Discussion Question of the Day

Q: It appears that the Cubs have been out of it for the last week or two, but many have continued to hold out hope. Would you rather have the team come down to the wire and NOT make the playoffs OR have them out by the end of the August?

I’d rather see the latter so I can focus on football, but that’s just me. What about you? How many games have you watched this month?

    Jake Peavy?

    BTW, love the trivia! It’s a whole lot better than discussing another Bradley incident, a Zambrano meltdown, or 1/2-dozen other players’ under-performing this year.
    Keep ’em coming, Joe!

  • Joe

    Jake Peavy is incorrect

  • Seymour Butts

    Cliff Lee, Brandon Webb, John Leiber….ok I’m guessing.

    About your other topic, This year there is not the overwhelming depression of last year, as it has been spread out over the last month or so. so emotionally, this way is easier. But I’m not sure I can say it’s preferable. I’m so pissed at the underachievers, for being such, that I’d probably prefer a repeat of last year. At least then they played well for the season, before chocking.
    But I have payed more attention to football this year, and probably will continue to do so as my team should be good (Go Pack).

  • Lee, Webb, Lieber – Wrong

  • Kevin Brown
    Bob Gibson
