Sarcasm, sir. But also it has been a pattern in the past that other Cub boards start labeling new posters as trolls and idiots quite quickly. A bit of an "good ol' boys" syndrome.

I can see where you would think that. But the "trolls" in reference number below ten if anything and really have nothing to contribute but inane rumblings. A lot of the posts are usually beating a dead horse...to death.

Im all about good conversation and a cool exchange of ideas even if its an opinion that goes against the norm, but some of those dudes need help.

Well SJJ said what I was going to.

And my sarcasm meter has been a little out-a-whack with the "trolls" and their crazy comments.

I don't really think that article changes much.

I think it's just Epstein trying to keep Garza and his agent happy by saying "we're not shopping Matt Garza".

If he does get traded I think it should be a trade deadline deal, so we can see how Wells, Demp, T. Wood, and Volstad pan out. And also see if Samardzija can make the rotation out of ST.

I am just waiting to hear what Better news has to say when Garza gets traded. I'm quite sure it will be a fun spin

The flip side is the horror of him being right if they don't trade him. *Shudder*


I never even thought of that. Suddenly, I want to see Garza traded. :o


Reasons I hope Matt Garza is traded:

51% - I believe a well-executed deal makes the Cubs better for the long-term
49% - Would be a boot to BetterNews' groin


That said, he's actually been not quite as bad lately - some folks like that eventually kind of get the hang of it. Even diehard doesn't grind my gears like he once did.

But, yeah. There are definitely some dunces...

Speaking of those guys, I wonder why they don't ever come over to this side of the site. I've heard many mention that it is nice that they aren't here, but always have been a little confused as to why they are not.

Does Brett only allow people he likes (or doesn't dislike to state it more correctly) to post on the message board?

It's because trolls hate effort. It's part of the deal for what they do. Thus, you add another layer of "effort" required, and many of them don't bother.

Anyone is welcome to join the Message Board. It's just that certain kinds of folks don't tend to do so.

And then, just like herpes, BetterNews comes roaring back! Got to love that guy. (LOL).

Ugh.

No one needs to be dicked in the dick more than BetterNews! Newbies, find the lexicon thread for the explanation of my previous statement.

I hope we trade Garza just to shut him up.
