As you can so obviously see people like Dizzy Dean, Buck O’Neil, and Satchel Paige have said some pretty outstanding quotes, are they true?

Have you ever wondered what it 's like to witness complete domination in sports? Look no further than Justin Verlander. The 6 time all-star has won a Cy Young, League MVP, Triple Crown, and has thrown two no-hitters in his current 13 year career. Justin Verlander is one of the most dominant and feared pitchers in all of baseball, but Justin is still searching for that one thing and that is a World Series championship.

Most quarterbacks, at any level, would have been nervous, but what Montana did, in the biggest game of the year, really shows how he earned the nickname Joe Cool. Joe Montana had great stats for an NFL quarterback. He may not have the best stats of all time compared to today 's players, but when he was done playing they were some of the best ever. In just 10 seasons of twelve games or more, he threw for over 40,500 passing yards, including passing for 300 yards in a single game thirty nine times, six of those times in the postseason.
If people were to search the name Peter Edward Rose they will see that he’s an all-time leader of base-hits,singles, at-bats, and games played. Pete Rose is one of the greatest baseball players to ever set foot on the diamond. Sadly, he will never be in the Hall of Fame because of his foolish mistake in gambling with his love for the game. Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio as a child and being nicknamed ¨Charlie Hustle¨, must of made him feel the need to actually hustle people, even though the name had a completely different meaning. Beginning his journey to fame in 1963 when he made his professional debut as a Reds he knew he wanted to play hard every play in the game.

The Texas Rangers currently sit atop the AL West by 6 games over the Houston Astros led by the forgotten ace Cole Hamels. Hamels was dealt to the Rangers at the deadline last July and hasn 't missed a beat the former world champion has put together a quiet 12-2 record with a 2.84 ERA putting him in Cy Young conversation. Hamels has been one of the most consistent pitchers in baseball for 10 years being the ace for two different clubs and helps lead the Phillies to a championship in 2008 as I mentioned. Since putting on the Rangers uniform he is 19-3 and amazingly he hasn 't been talked about as much as he should because he is out West. I think that 's been a great benefit for Hamels because although he is the ace he is not “the guy” as he was in the latter part of his Phillies career.
