    I owe Bellhorn04 $100 (virtual), which I will pay off with two tix to a Seadogs game in 2021.

    He may not have led the league in IP, any year, but putting in over 29 starts and 199 in 6 of 7 years with the Sox is hardly being injured a lot.

    He was 25th in GS'd from 1998-2004.

    He was 15th in IP'd in those 7 Sox years.

    Sorry that was explaining Jim Rice.

    The subject was around favorite player, and my feelings on that subject were colored by the games I actually went to moreso than watched on tv or read about in the paper in the late 90s and early 2000s. A coworker was a season ticket holder, and I'd buy 7-10 games worth a year in that period from him. I think I went to 3 Pedro games in all, and in each one he was playing through injury and wasn't very effective. There were 2-3 more that he was supposed to be the starter in but didn't appear. That's what I meant by always injured - I meant it in a very subjective sense. I realize it was just my bad luck to never catch Pedro at his best. Contrast that with Nomar, who I got to watch have some sizzling games. I even saw Juan Pena dominate lol.

    Sadly I don't go to games anymore. Maybe I can turn that around this year.

    PS: I did get to see the "mother's day miracle" against Baltimore... and I think the last game I saw in that time period they scored 20+ runs against a Marlins team that would win it all that year.
