I'm just greedy now.. and thinking that I should make more gut decisions.. maybe I'll do that today.. So what do you think? Would you take any other top 2 in the world series today and you were gonna only use 2 guys .. like back in the day.. just slingin guts.. the only drawback I can come up with is neither have them have been on the big stage from what I understand.. Would they crumble?.. I don't think so.. do you?
