My Favorite All-Time Lineup (not necessarily the best)

 

1B- Jeff Bagwell

2B- Chase Utley

3B- Chipper Jones

SS- Nomar Garciaparra

C- Jason Varitek

LF- Craig Biggio

CF- Ken Griffey Jr.

RF- J.D. Drew

DH- Joe DiMaggio

 
SP- Roger Clemens

 

SP- Justin Verlander

SP- Cole Hamels

SP- Bob Feller

SP- Tom Glavine

SP- Daisuke Matsuzaka

RP- Dennis Eckersley

CP- Trevor Hoffman

 

I have six starting pitchers, but one could be another reliever. Joe DiMaggio is at DH since Griffey is at the CF position.

 

 

 

 

 

It has been discovered that some granite kitchen countertops contain a dangerous amount of uranium. There is enough of the radioactive substance to exceed the yearly standard for visitors to nuclear facilities. It has been suggested that 85% of granite countertops are safe, but that is unacceptable. Granite countertops are fairly common, and many people have been unknowingly and unwillingly subjected to something that could possibly drastically increase the possibility of cancer. Any company making countertops should now check their materials thoroughly, recall unsafe counters, and allow testing and replacement for concerned consumers. How much of a concern is the situation really? It is unlikely cancer would be caused in a short amount of time for exposure, but ten years or more down the road a consumer who gets cancer may not know what the cause was. It is better to be safe than sorry; companies should respect that and consumers should project that in their actions.
