      It's possible to gain some power as you age, and roids don't really change anything.

      The Braves are in first place, woooooooooooooo! And since I'm also taking the reigns of a Rockies fan, UBALDO DOES IT AGAINNNNNNNNN (with a **** ton of pitches).

      • If you had to name an all defensive MLB team, who would be on it?

            Was wondering if you'd say Mauer. I love Mauer of course, but I think he's overrated defensively. Great arm, but sometimes I question his pitch calling and he's had some problems receiving the ball on plays at the plate, although he had an amazing tag in the Texas game on Saturday.

            How about Ichiro in right? Or is he just overrated defensively? Markakis? Carlos Gonzalez? Choo?

              I don't think Markakis is all that great defensively, and Choo is good but his arm makes him seem better than he is. For the other two, CarGo will probably end up back in center eventually and for now, he's now overtly great in right, and Ichiro is probably up there with Cruz.

              As for catcher, I would have said Laird but I think last year was an aberration of excellence.

                      Jeter and Hudson are extremely overrated defensively imo. Tex has a good glove but I dont think he has the range that Pujols has.

                      • Yeah Hudson can play too aggressive sometimes but Rollins is legit, you can't really go wrong with Jeter though IMO. And tex has a few gold gloves recently, he has great coordination.

                        • Jeter sucks defensively. I would take Asdrubal Cabrera while on the DL over Jeter.

                            Jeter has pretty much no range going up the middle. He better be prepared for a possible move to LF next year.

                            • there is 0 chance jeter gets moved, especially to the outfield. his lack of range hasn't hurt the yankees and they've got nobody to replace him.
