    Well, nobody is perfect, not even Carlsen: he is a Real Madrid fan.

    Y'all know, right, that Carlsen could blow out his shoulder and never pitch again, right?

    Kershaw's got a ways to go yet to match Koufax.

    Koufax might never have matched Koufax if not for a Dodger scout who happened to be watching his own team in spring training.  He noticed that Koufax was trying to throw so hard he was taking his head back so far he took his eye off the plate. 

    It was when Koufax corrected for this that he gained real control in addition to his frightening speed, and began setting records.

    Well, it's official now. Magnus Carlsen's going 2851+ now, whether he wants to or not!

    Folks are tolking about him being 2900 by next spring.

    Kinda doubt that, though. Magnus draws too much. And he will be dropping major points drawing a "mere 2750."

    He probably just means it sticks out in particular.

    Yeah, Magnus does have a decent amount of draws, though not in the 2012 London Smile. Of course, he is probably having an above average tournament. If he could perform like this all the time, using the performance calculation, he would literally be above 3000 Smile
