Late Night Trade Rumors + Simpsons

So I'm drinking some beer late at night and wanting to talk rumors. You may indulge or ignore me.

According to Jon Heyman the Angels have declared their intention to add an "impact" bat, and Adam Dunn is the second option to Mark Teixeira. Robothal says the Braves have a huge, Salty offer out for Tex, but that doesn't really make sense given how savvy Schuerholz is.

Wouldn't Dunn throw a monkey wrench into that Angels-smallball cult? If he goes there and they don't win the World Series will the blame entirely fall on him?

Heyman goes on to rank the best available starters thusly: Matt Morris, Livan Hernandez, Jose Contreras, Jason Jennings and Kyle Lohse. He adds that Jon Garland, Noah Lowry or Joe Blanton would easily jump to the top of the list.

Am I the only one who thinks Lohse is underrated on this list? Let's just look at this year:


            IP    HR   SO   BB   WHIP   ERA+  PRC   DERA
Morris    129.7   11   65   39   1.45   103    40    4.78
Livan     133.3   21   67   57   1.59    99    46    4.22
Contreras 118.7   12   68   45   1.61    73    29    4.68
Jennings   76.0    8   56   26   1.42    91    26    4.67
Lohse     131.7   16   80   33   1.33   100    42    4.48

Would someone really want Contreras over Kyle? Am I a crazy homer to think that our boy might be the best of these five?

If you're around to comment before I run out of beer or pass out I'll respond. Just to get things going I'll add controversial statements:

The US should legalize drugs, but not tax them.

Jeff Keppinger is an incredibly clutch hitter.

Helena Bonham Carter was way hotter when she acted in period pictures, before she got with Tim Burton and became quasi-goth and started always playing witches.

Update [2007-7-27 3:55:31 by Red Menace]: Also, seeing as the Simpsons movie is dropping today, what is your choice for the best episode? My money is on Lisa's Substitute from way back in 1991.
