  • Most Controversial Opinion

    It's pretty simple: Of all the opinions you have in baseball, what one is the most controversial?

    For me its easy: Babe Ruth is not the greatest player to play the game (he is in my top 5 however).

      Curt Flood should be in the hall of fame.

      The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

        Rogers Hornsby and Ted Williams are not only NOT my choice for 2B or LF on my all time team, they are not in the top 3 at their positions for my choices

        their outstanding hitting just doesnt make up for their weak defense and sour personalities

          Joe Morgan is not a top 5 secondbaseman alltime.

            Public financing of stadiums is a good idea (when necessary).

            Wrigley Field needs renovations or even replacement.

              Wow. Some of these really are shocking.

                Get rid of the fallacy of two "leagues.". They're nothing more than two conferences at this point. Common draft, trades and free agency amongst all teams, etc. Drop the pitchers hitting and play a schedule where every team plays every other MLB team at least home and away series every year. There's no reason star players shouldn't be seen in person by fans across the country every year.

                  Add two more expansion teams.

                  Then go to a four division setup, with no wildcards.

                    The DH is not as big a deal as its opponents make it out to be.
                    Less double switches does not necessarily mean there is no strategy in the AL.
                    Walking a lot does not necessarily mean the player is an offensive threat any more (or less) than a lot of RBI does because both are dependant on teammates for run production.

                      Mine is that I believe Catfish Hunter is a definate HOFer. Ace of a staff that won three straight WS, 5 straight div. 5 straight 20 win seasons is good enough for me. But not for a lot of people on this site. C'est la Vie....

                        Batting average is a statistic that should be looked at.

                        Pete Rose, Eddie Cicotte, and Joe Jackson all belong in the HoF and should be reinstated to baseball

                        Dennis Eckersley isn't a top 5 reliever

                        Get rid of the Marlins and Rockies for a 28-team, 14-league MLB.

                        Baseball needs a salary cap and a contract limit. You shouldn't be able to sign a player for more than 4 years

                          Did Eddie Cicotte gave a Hall of Fame career? That's a tough sell IMO.

                            Even if he did, you don't honor a man who sells out his team in the Hall of Fame.
                            They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                              Oh sure. I was just asking if sans the scandal was Cicotte a HoF pitcher?
