Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:43:07 PM »
Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole.  If everything but the last word was true then this would be a great accomplishment.  Still, Danica has broken a barrier in NASCAR becoming the first driver ever to win the pole at NASCAR's top race.  How do you think she will finish in the actual race next weekend?

I think she has a shot but will she be in the big one.

Ouch.

I hope she wins. In reality I think she finishes in the top 10.

It could go either way. She could win the race, finish in the top 10, finish lower than 10th, or even wreck. But she definitely has the talent to win the 500.

Darrell Waltrip put it best the other day.  Major accomplishments in NASCAR are to win Daytona, Darlington, Indy, Bristol, AND the pole for the Daytona 500.  No easy task.  I think if she finishes on the lead lap and in the top 15 it is a major success.

  • Anthony: No problem Ryan. I've been looking at your proposal in Bush for a while now and its well put together

    Today at 12:41:37 AM
  • Anthony: Hes unbelievable
    Today at 12:41:46 AM
  • RyanJames5: Thanks. I think it's a necessary update. Along with a few of the other proposals would really improve the league.
    Today at 12:41:57 AM
  • Anthony: 3 years of control on the best closer in baseball, you could get a lot for him, especially since Showalter won't use him in the playoffs anyways
    Today at 12:42:38 AM
  • RyanJames5: lol I know we do B. Don't get me wrong. I love Britton, but I think the likelihood of resigning him and Manny is almost zero
    Today at 12:42:58 AM
  • RyanJames5: Lol. I do believe it's only 2 years of control.
    Today at 12:44:15 AM
  • Anthony: My bad I forgot 2016 is already over.
    Today at 12:44:52 AM
  • RyanJames5: I think actually more than the impact on the field the fans would flip BooYah! if he was dealt
    Today at 12:45:39 AM
  • Anthony: If you could get a Chapman deal plus a little more for him, hard to turn down

  • brandonj2262: Why hasn't he signed haha
    Today at 12:51:18 AM
  • Anthony: Weird to think a competing time should trade their best play to be better, but if you can a few game changers who play everyday, its something to consider
    Today at 12:51:34 AM
  • RyanJames5: Haha yeah he's crazy. He must really want to stay in Chicago.
    Today at 12:51:53 AM
  • brandonj2262: Yea it's tough as a fan to look at some situations and say it's the correct call
    Today at 12:52:36 AM
  • brandonj2262: Yea if the Marlins offered me 92m I'd say when can I sign

  • Anthony: How much impact does a closer have IYO?
    Today at 12:53:40 AM
  • RyanJames5: I agree there. Not a ton of times that it would make sense to trade someone like Britton when you're intending to contend again next year.
    Today at 12:53:41 AM
  • brandonj2262: See I don't think a closer is huge...look at the Giants over the run they have made the past few years. Closer was Romo/Casilla
    Today at 12:54:59 AM
  • brandonj2262: Won some World Series's
    Today at 12:55:16 AM
  • RyanJames5: I think it's more of a bullpen impact than just the closer.
    Today at 12:56:01 AM
  • RyanJames5: If you have a lights out 2 or 3 guy it can make an AVG rotation solid because they only need to make it through 6
    Today at 12:56:40 AM
  • Anthony: In your guys case, he can't mean much because of Showalter. He's a fantastic manager, but you have to use Britton like Tito used Miller in the playoffs for it to be worth it
    Today at 12:56:51 AM
  • brandonj2262: We both said when the O's traded Rodriguez for Miller they needed to do what Tito did this past year with Miller
    Today at 12:57:56 AM
  • RyanJames5: I'll be interested to see what impact that has on relievers going forward. Because it works or short spirts, but I think we all saw that Miller and Chapman were out of gas by the end of the series and they'd only been used like that for a few weeks.
    Today at 12:58:08 AM
  • brandonj2262: Oh yea relievers can't be used like that during the regular season
    Today at 12:58:59 AM
  • RyanJames5: Neither of those guys give up the bombs they did in game 7 in game 1 of the series.
    Today at 12:59:00 AM

  • brandonj2262: Carlos Gomez 1 year deal with Texas
    Today at 01:02:54 AM
  • RyanJames5: Hmmm. No need for Desmond back then?
    Today at 01:04:03 AM
  • brandonj2262: I don't think they have any room for him
    Today at 01:04:39 AM
  • RyanJames5: Nats should just give up on dealing and sign Desmond.
