Koop, here is a better answer to your question about shoeless joe: From experts.com: "Jackson is the only rookie to have batted over .400; he hit .408 for Cleveland in 1911 (although he would not be considered a rookie by today's definition)."So he was a rookie, but today a player in his situation would not be.Okay I got Gehrig right, I'm thinking of a good question.Okay here's one: Name ONE of the top THREE leaders in career WHIP (Walks + Hits per Inning Pitched).I'll give you a hint (because this is harder than it sounds): 2 of them are from the turn of the 20th century, and one of them is still active.Feel free to give 3 answers, since there ARE 3 answers.
Karl: She was a bit -- what's the word that you can use, cuz I don't wanna offend anyone?
Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

I figured Pedro would likely be in there...his peak numbers are pretty sick.Alright let's see here...There are two players who are tied for most homeruns hit in the month of September....they hit 17 HR's that month. One of them is Babe Ruth. Who is the other???Hint: Played on a team that is currently in the AL Central and is not an active player.

Harmon KillebrewBut that is a wild guess, and I don't even know if I spelled his name correctly.

I guess this is all unnecessary rambling because Hollywood personifies something I hate about most people. He can take valuable knowledge, stare it right in the fucking face and never let a single sentence absorb into his brain.
