Will Verlander win 25? ...or more?

He'll probably only get one more start. Leyland will give him a little extra rest and set him up to go game one in the playoffs. 25 sounds right.

Ok - time for some 70's music. What do you think about these songs?

Great stuff Mike the Guess Who right here from my home town. And I have met Burton Cummings. And Thomas the singer for Blood Sweat & Tears also another great Canadian, and a great contack of mine who is no longer on R&P as much, when by Wonderful Tonight's brother played in the horn section of Blood Sweat and Tears for a while I believe. all great tunes and I love what you are doing, by leaving out some of the better known bands of that time, as my favorite the Stones. But hey it was not just them and the Beatles that made the 70's or 60's. take care dave

Why in the world would you think Andy Pettite is a future HOFer?

You know, I don't think he will. In a different question today, I answered that he probably would make the Hall of Fame if he hadn't had his 'roid issues, but that was without looking up the numbers (I thought I had an idea of his totals, but I was wrong). For some reason, I thought he had a lot more than 240 wins. I thought he was within reach of 300, and as most would agree, 300 is an automatic ticket to Cooperstown. I was also surprised to learn about the 3.88 ERA; I thought it was much lower. But now that I've looked at his numbers, I'm inclined to agree. Pettitte won't make the Hall of Fame, even if the voters start forgiving steroid users.

Favorite Starting 5 Rotation and Closer For A Team?

The 1998 New York Yankees starting rotation: 1. David Wells (threw a perfect game) 2. David Cone (won 20 wins) 3. Andy Pettite (your typical Texas work horse) 4. Hideki Irabu (solid samurai picked up 13 wins) 5. Orlando Hernandez (best windup ever) Closer: Mariano Rivera (arguably the best closer ever)

What are my baseball cards worth?

While most of these players are (or were) All-stars, at the peak of their careers the card companies were releasing a glut of cards on the market. Most cold still get better than common prices, but the condition, wear and sharp corners will all be factors. Check on line or ebay for average prices.

Any obscure music recommendations?

Oooooo... Classic Rock :) Fleetwood Mac are one of my 5 equal favourite bands. The other 4 are :~ Led Zeppelin Jethro Tull Blackmore's Night {not CR} Dire Straits Favourite artist : Mike Oldfield And I like a wide range of other Classic Rock bands / artists, including The Who, and a couple of songs from others you mentioned :)

Favorite Fleetwood Mac era?

This is a *very* tough question for me, as they are one of my favourite bands, and that for me means their entire career. I grew-up on a mix of original Peter Green era and Buckingham/Nicks era, and only got into the Danny Kirwan / Christine McVie / Bob Welch era last year. So... I love *all* of it {except the brief Bekka Bramlet phase!}, and this is so hard. I guess my ultimate choice would be post-1975 era. But if I'm in the mood for my '3am music', then it has to be Peter Green era. And then there are the moments when nothing but Danny's 'Dragonfly' will do... It's not fair ~ I can't choose! {{{{{{{Patrick}}}}}}} I want photos! And a set-list!

Rank these pitchers?

For their Career: 1. Dave Steib, he was not seen enough by the general population for them to realize how great he was. 2. Jack Morris, every time you counted him he came back and won 20 games. 3. Mike Scuff, he was just nasty and people forget that he was the #1 on that staff not Nolan Ryan! 4. Bob Welch, good pitcher but a bit of a space cadet....Scoscia once said that he went to the mound to talk to Welch and he was staring at the clouds asking Mike "have you ever wanted to just ride the clouds man?" 5. Frank Viola, the circle change master; he had good years in Minnesota but was really a shell of himself in NY. NOTE: I failed to look up numbers on all five pitchers, I am going strictly off memory of the five; I would like to see any of them on a staff that I had!

Looking for the details on a song apparently titled "You Keep Me Up All Night"?

Could it be Lionel Richie. The album is called Coming Home

Any (obscure) music suggestions?

Some albums: "The Way Of The Vaselines" by The Vaselines (quirky Scottish group, now defunct, influential on Nirvana) "L'Amour Fou" by Kanda Bongo Man (soukous music from Zaire - brilliant guitar playing and very uplifting) "Barbed Wire Kisses" by the Jesus & Mary Chain (it's a best-of, but as you don't have any, it's a start : ) "45s And Under" by Squeeze (great melodic pop from a songwriting duo who were heralded as the new Lennon-McCartney. Not quite, but worth checking out) "Beers, Steers + Queers" by Revolting Cocks (the weirder side of industrial) "Architecture & Morality" by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (elegant early electronica from 1981)

I saw a ? that was resolved...but the answer wasn't correct. How can I add a correct answer?

You could see if the person is open for you to email or im if you are that concerned. Or maybe you can get to their 360 page and leave a message there.

Where is the Big Three of Oakland now? Mulder, Hudson and Zito?

Hudson is hurt with the Braves, Mulder is hurt and a free agents, and Zito is bad for the Giants.

Is there a song nameable which comes even close to Fleetwood Mac's "Hypnotized" ~ ?

You know, this is a good question. Fleetwood Mac often overlooks those early LA years between the Peter Green and the Buckingham-Nicks years. Bob Welch was the bridge here, and Mick Fleetwood has often cited Bob Welch as keeping the band afloat through those lean years. I am personally NOT a fan of Bob Welch - too LA/laid back/soft rock for my tastes. But I do very definitely like "Hypnotized" and know I always will. It was an FM favorite here in NYC for years. Welch is now seemingly living off his Fleetwood Mac years, as tenuous as they may be (when Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the RnR Hall Of Fame in 1999, Bob Welch was NOT included) He has released in recent years two CD sets of music entitled "My Fleetwood Mac Years And Beyond" which are just re-records of his music from that period. Part 1 came out in like 2003, with part 2 coming out a little over 3 years later.

Based on the criteria for making it into the Hall of Fame, which of the following pitchers is the closest?

None will ever be elected unless someone gets a future convention of the Veterans Committee extremely drunk one night. Before we go to the actual tote board, I'd select Cone as my preferred FHOFer from this group. Here's how they did in real voting: Brown -- last played 2005, eligible January 2011 ballot. Cone -- last played 2003, eligible January 2009 ballot. Gooden -- first ballot 2006 -- 17 votes, 3.3%, relegated. Hershiser -- first ballot 2006 -- 58 votes, 11.2%; 2007 -- 24 votes, 4.4%, relegated. Saberhagen -- first ballot 2007 -- 7 votes, 1.3%, relegated. Stewart -- first ballot 2001 -- 38 votes, 7.4%; 2002 -- 23 votes, 4.9%, relegated. Welch -- first ballot 2000 -- 1 vote, 0.2%, relegated. Of the five who have been candidates, none lasted more than two ballot cycles, and Orel got the peak return at under 12%. I think Cone will do better on both counts (and Brown, in several ways, is the best pitcher in the bunch), but we must wait and see. I am quite certain that the Hall need not call the plaque minter for any of these fine pitchers, however.

What influence did your father have in your life?

You're lucky. I never had a good relationship with my father. It was very strained and he never spent any time with me or my sister, and was always telling us we'd never amount to anything and that he didn't have any confidence in us. Your quote is SO RIGHT......I'm estranged from my father now and as my son says, I have more issues than National Geographic. My mother is just the opposite.

Which era of Fleetwood Mac do you Enjoy the most, the Peter Green, Bob Welch or Nicks / Buckingham eras?

Actually, my favorite era is from Then Play On through Bare Trees, so actually that would be the "Danny Kirwan era," really. He's long been my favorite of their songwriters, though of the three frontmen/women combos I'd definitely pick Green. Peter Green - Coming Your Way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e30mRSqINeA (with "Oh Well" as a very close second) Bob Welch - Child of Mine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kd7g_hXtK5I Buckingham/Nicks - The Chain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nVT44ahu3E

Do you remember the old Fleetwood Mac with Bob Welch and Peter Green?

Well, I don't remember them at the time, as I wasn't born yet! But, I was fortunate enough to be brought up listening to albums from both the 'Buckingham Nicks' era, and the original Peter Green line-up. However, it wasn't until I looked further into the band for myself {in the last few years} that I became aware of the Christine McVie / Danny Kirwan / Bob Welch era from 1970 - 1974. I love Fleetwood Mac from their 1967 origins to the present day, but those classic Blues-based songs are what I call my "3am music" ~ the stuff I relax to. I also particularly like 'Oh Well', but my favourites are probably 'I Loved Another Woman', 'Underway' {full 15 mins version}, 'The Green Manalishi (with the Two Pronged Crown)', 'Man of the World', and 'Need Your Love So Bad'. My personal Fleetwood Mac collection is a little unusual, as it also includes: 3 songs by The Peter B's ~ a band Peter Green was in early in his career; the John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers album "A Hard Road", which was the one Peter played on, and that is where he met Mick and John; the two Chicken Shack albums featuring Christine McVie {then Christine Perfect}; and Christine's first solo album, released just before she officially joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 {she had already played uncredited piano on a couple of albums}.

Do you mean of the A's because that was the last team he pitched for? In 1990 he went 27-6 2.95 ERA. Retired in 1994 as an A.

Welch was the pitching coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks when they won the World Series in 2001. During the 2006 World Baseball Classic, Welch served as the pitching coach for The Netherlands.
