It's not a completely useless stat. Cain is well known for consistently getting way too lucky on his HR/FB percentage, likely helped by the park he pitches in. Pitching in a homer-friendly park like...

It's really not that far-fetched to think that the Rangers can win this series. Texas has the advantage in starting pitching, the defenses are about even, the bullpens are close but Rivera does put...

Jimmy Eat World - I wish Jim would use the "short bursts of imagery" lyrical style more often (ex. Table for Glasses). I think it's when he's at his best, and when he gets too wordy, he's more prone...

Kane's the better offensive weapon, but when you add defense, penalty killing, checking, and leadership into the equation, Richards wins out. You know how the general consensus from hockey fans is...

The Flyers have 2 of the best 4 remaining forwards in the playoffs (Richards and Carter, and I'd take Richards over Kane due to his superior two-way play), the biggest crunch time player left...

Agreed, but the fact remains that due to circumstance it did not reach as many people.

Now we're just discussing semantics. Let's end this and hand it back to the BA Appreciation people.

Not saying it was the sole album, but it was one of the key early ones. And due to the fact that it exploded on pop radio moreso than most of its peers, I would guess that it probably did more to...

Agreed that it's been referred to almost every popular band related to punk since 2002, but as a result of BA, Jimmy Eat World was one of the, if not the first. Blame it on the majors and MTV, but...

We're going to have to agree to disagree here. I see no real difference in artistic quality between say, 'Lit Up' and 'Racing Like a Pro'. One of their best songs, in my opinion, is 'Cherry Tree',...

Wasn't a part of making this list, but I'd say it would definitely be in my top 40.

Well, it's certainly...

Classic example of an epic failure, in my opinion. Tons of truly spectacular moments, with a bunch of really unnecessary moments as well. Too many flaws to be considered...

Ouch, can't believe I forgot Perfect From Now On. Not a big Elliott Smith fan, so not surprised I forgot that one, but I can see the logic of ranking it that highly.
