Comment on King Felix Reigns Supreme by chase http://www.thebravesblog.com/2012/08/king-felix-reigns-supreme/comment-page-1/#comment-17398 chase Thu, 16 Aug 2012 03:51:14 +0000 http://www.thebravesblog.com/?p=794#comment-17398 I was there when Randy Johnson pitched his perfect game. It doesn't seem near as special anymore. @Jim_Powell tweeted this earlier today "There were 6 MLB perfect games btw 1923-87, six more btw 1988-2008, and now six more in the last four seasons" It's still a rare and impressive feat, but there is a selfish part of me that wishes it would stay even rarer so that my experience can remain that much more special.

Comment on Soapbox Time by chase http://www.thebravesblog.com/2012/07/soapbox-time/comment-page-1/#comment-17103 chase Mon, 02 Jul 2012 22:08:33 +0000 http://www.thebravesblog.com/?p=671#comment-17103 I definitely agree with you on the point that you can't import your stats AND be considered a rookie. In terms of whether they should be considered rookies, I'm split. I, without a doubt, believe that the MLB is the premiere baseball league in the world. I don't think there are any that compare to it, both in terms of talent and difficulty. With that in mind, why wouldn't someone that had never played in the MLB be considered a rookie? If you say that someone playing in another professional league is not a rookie during his first year in the MLB, then you are essentially saying that he played in a league that was equivalent to the MLB. When you grant that equivalency, and base his tenure on his "imported" playing time, I think you have to import his statistics at that point as well. As much as I hate Chipper getting robbed of RotY (and I think he was robbed regardless of whether Nomo was a true rookie or not) I think I would much rather something like that happen, than a player come over with 800 home runs, play a season, and then retire the home run king.
