OT Banter Game: Over, Under and Just Right.

Fun game to break up the monotony of discussing baseball when no baseball is being played:

 

1. Name something that is over rated.

2. Name something that is under rated.

3. Name something that is correctly rated.

 

Be bold.  No one is right or wrong.  People will disagree.  We’ll talk and pass the time.  I’ll go first...

 

Jack Nicholoson's career is over rated.  I think the last time he was actually required to act in a way not almost entirely consistant with his own personality was in 1980 (The Shining).  Of his early classics I think only Chinatown and One Flew Over the Cuckchoo's Nest have held up well.

 

Van Morrison is under rated.  I know, Van Morrison is much loved.  But until he is rated at least as high as The Doors and Bob Dylan he remains under rated.

 

Joe Posnanski is correctly rated.  Everyone likes to read Joe’s columns.  Everyone knows Joe pretty well knows what he is talking about.  No one pretends Joe is a baseball genius, or that he deserves a Pulitzer Prize.  Joe Po’s writing occasionally transcends the genre of sports writing, and the public recognizes he is good enough at his craft to get away with this.
