This might be my favorite post in a message board ever, and I've seen a lot of posts.


You and I must frequent very different message boards.

 

 

Hey must have never seen the "Women in Baseball" thread.

That thread is even more entertaining when you put Morken on ignore.

HAHA.  I did, just it never worked, I always clicked the button.

 

Now, if there was just an ignore feature on the front page.

Must maintain my cool.  Dang Brett, you really are making it tough with that blurb about Boras today.  Don't get me wrong, it is an excellent piece, but you knew it would draw haters like flies to a fresh dog turd.  I am calling on my inner Puppet Patience at this point.


Please don't feed the psychos.

People were crapping all over the Morrison trade. Brett could write about how he likes cats in pajamas and it'd turn into a THEO SUCKS fest.

I'm just avoiding that whole thread I read it as text only and then made sure not to look at a single comment. This upcoming year is going to be comment hell unless we surprise everyone and look competitive in April, but then the hater would be crying "if we only got X Y Z then we'd win the World Series." I hope if the season sucks Brett has created the ignore button so I'd only see you guys in the comments.

I don't want to accuse Ace of link baiting (or encourage it), but if he'd put up one thread per day that did nothing but attract the rage of the meatheads (and keep 'em the hell off of the other threads), I'd certainly not look askance.

Hell that could be the only post of the day and he could still pay the bills

Ha. That Boras post ... let's just say I had lots of iterations of the title (and messages therein using words like "meatballs" and "simple, angry folk") before I settled on the most straight-forward version. 

 

I hate to rouse the rabble, but sometimes the content does it for me. Just fucking sign Tanaka and shut some motherfuckers up for a few weeks.

"Theo is such an IDIOT!  He signed Tanaka for ### years and $### million and he's never thrown a pitch in the US!"

 

I'd almost bet my house that should the stars align and the Cubs snag Tanaka, a comment to that effect will be in the first 20.

That would be nice.

 

Worst case scenario from an rage-hate standpoint - the Cubs trade for an outfielder that the rabble haven't heard of but the stats indicate should be very good for the Cubs.  Then we'd have the "dumping prospects" hate, the "abandoning the plan" hate, the "stupid plan" hate, the "Theo got robbed" hate, the "Ricketts is cheap" hate, the "I don't like statistics" hate, and the "I'm smarter than they are so they should just follow my plan" hate all packed into a solid mass of self-feeding, vitriolic nonsense.  

 

And as a result the Cubs marketing team, who quite probably keep an eye on the comments here, decide to drink their way through all the beers in the beer thread.
