Chavez vs Straily

Behold, the rarely disputed greatest player in baseball.

I was going to say that I have no love lost for the Angels, but they were my childhood team, and now I don't love them anymore and in fact kind of hate them, so I guess I...have?...lost love for the Angels?

Anyway, it would do my heart good to see the Fish stomp a mudhole in their collective rally monkey-loving chests ala Stone Cold.

Thread Question:

We know the record sucks, but the All-Star game is IN Miami this year, there's no way they wont have some Marlins in this game. Who you got?
