As for the conference, it has always been about politics and how much ass you want to kiss. Phenomenal athletes throughout the conference, but all you have to do is, know someone.
I have a hard time believing he is the 3rd pitcher in that team. He outhits both of the other by 100 points or more. And itís not like the other guys are shutting people down. They win because they have a really good team, but itís not because of their pitching. We all know that you canít sit Purcell, dude was the best for so many years. So as long as he is in any team, sponsors HAVE to play him.
