    Analysis only a homer could appreciate.

    Oh thats sad, Ace gets some criticism and he gets all defensive. Typical cubs fan, wants to dish it but cant take it.

    At least you can rest assured I never had the impression that you bothered to research or reflect on your posts before spewing garbage into the internet.

    Quit spewing garbage into the Internet, Ace.

    Hey acehole, I don’t mean to rain on your parade, but what exactly was the “criticism” that Ace couldn’t handle? Hack called him a homer, then misread his post, and you pretty much just acted like a douche. If anyone has an actual argument for Ace, I’d love to hear it, but you two mental midgets aren’t filling that bill.

    As an unbiased baseball fan that loves to read the blogs and the comments,I am astounded that someone would attack Ace. He is very well respected around the baseball blog circuit and I find it appalling to have to read the uneducated responses of some ‘fans’.
    Its very true that some fan bases are smarter than others.
    Case in point is this article and thread.

    Like the infamous ‘Cap’ once said……….”just sayin’.”

    I simply cannot believe a writer for a Cubs fan site would write with an opinion biased towards the Cubs. Unheard of!

    Given the pitch in question was an errant curve ball and didn’t hit Braun, it still leaves you wondering what Macha’s intent is.

      To compete with LaRussa and Baker for biggest douchebag manager in the division?

    I will give him points for using Acehole, even though he used it incorrectly. Acehole is supposed to be used as a term of endearment. Look it up in your dictionary douche.

    This has got to be the stupidest sight I have ever been to. Just a bunch of Cubs fans trying to make themselves feel better because the “almighty cubs” haven’t fared as well as everyone thought. What are you guys now, in fourth place in the NL central. As far as Braun being cocky, I think the word you are looking for is confident. You cant tell me that if someone pegged you in the head (or near the head), and at you next at bat you homered against the guy, you wouldn’t be excited. If you had Braun you would be saying the same thing I am.

      I won’t speak for any other Cubs’ fan, but I wouldn’t be saying the same thing about Braun if he were a Cub. I would call him a cocky prick because I call them like I see them. I get pissed when Soriano waltzes down the first base line on fly balls that would be doubles if he’d put some hustle into it. I get pissed when Zambrano starts yelling on the mound and being a baby instead of using his emotion to get batters out. And I would certainly get pissed if Braun stared down the pitcher on a home run because he thought the pitcher was trying to bean him.

      Anyways, it’s a moot point because nothing is going to come of this.

      Oh, and for the record, at the present moment the Cubs are in 4th place…at 0.5 game out of 2nd and 1.5 games out of 1st. There is still a lot of baseball left to be played. Nice try, though.

      “Stupidest sight?” The irony…

      For future reference, “sight” has to do with your eyes. “Site” has to do with the Internet.

      Next time you call something/someone stupid, you might want to avoid making errors while doing so.

      Thanks for stopping by!

        Well, sorry “your majesty of spelling,” I guess I’m just not as smart as you cubs fans. At least Biggz can admit that some of your players are just as bad. I’ll give him credit for that. I guess I just don’t see the big deal about sticking it to a guy who almost takes your head off with a pitch. The problem I have is that you guys are making such a big deal about that, and about Macha sticking up for Braun. Of course he is going to stick up for Brauny, he is his manager. Baseball is an emotional game, and if someone tried to take me out (whether it be intentional or not) I would have probably done the same thing. I don’t see anyone getting all worked up about him almost pegging another player in the head. Whatever though, like Biggz said, nothing will come of this because it’s a divisional rival.
