What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
You can read the rumors on mlbtraderumors.com. I don't think anyone ultimately knows the answer to your question at this point. There are those who are convinced a trade is imminent and those who think the Rockies and Rangers are still only in preliminary talks.
You could also read TR Sullivan's article on the Texas Rangers website.
WWJDD? I see what you are trying to say with your Brett Favre analogy, but who is the equivalent of Aaron Rodgers we are getting in place of Young???
Way to be your own cheerleader Matches! Awesome.
Just to be clear...is that cheerleader just a skirt or more than that (since you said you root for uniforms and not human beings and all)? Don't misread this as some kind of gay jab please because that's not how I mean it at all.
@Steve maybe Beltre?@ Joe I do but it just looks like the same thing posted over and over again
PS I still can't believe that I nailed your profile so well. Do you sometimes wonder if I am someone who knows you, who is a friend or acquaintance of yours, masquerading as a Joe character on this website?
??????? thats just weird
Joe,I didn't talk badly about your sister...read your initial post then read my comments again very slowly and carefully. If anything I talk about me and my neighbor.Also, you got what you wanted. You started a thread and got well over an hour of discussion from it. It's what you do so mission accomplished.Tell your sister to find a new favorite as I do every few years. By the way, mine is Cruz right now and hopefully will be for the next 3-5 years.David
LOL...you had to be there man, too much to explain.
Martin, that's a good point, I didn,t think about it that way.If MY still wants to be here, there is room for both...maybe ?
I dont really know, all i know is im getting a Beltre jersey that will be good for about six years lol.
Lopez is a joke.... just drop him and they only owe him $600K.... As for team chemistry, the best thing for that is winning, not one particular player.
If you don't want anyone to comment about your sister, maybe don't come here and post about her.
No one took any cheap shots at her or stated anything derogatory about her, yet you were itching to get caught up in an argument. When someone made a benign comparison to his neighbor who was more of a Favre fan than a Packers fan, you took it as an offense to her and to yourself and were all up in arms over it.
per Joe's initial post - "BTW, she is not one to make such statements lightly, she probably really is done with them for at least a couple of years win or lose."
Yeah....how dare we question her loyalty....
Any way we can just vote this idiot off the BBTIA island?
If my sister is done with the Rangers its because they treated MY like shit, I don't think that is fully established yet.
David was insulting to my sister because he called into question 30 years of her rooting for the Rangers and compared her to some dumbass who only roots for Brett Farve.
Yes, he did it somewhat inadvertantly but it was nonetheless insulting.
I never said that he said anything derogatory about my sister, only that he called into question her 30 years of having rooted for the Rangers which is a low blow inadvertant or not.
PS Pull T, you are still obviously sore about the time I exposed your true colors in the roid thread. Sorry you took all that so hard, but I wasn't intending to be mean or anything.
Meh, for me "low blow" = "insulting" = "derogatory" ...all the same...
My "true colors"? So have you profiled me now like you did Martin?
You obviously get WAY too worked up surfing around the internet dude...and besides that, you add absolute nothing to the discourse here. If anything, you are a net negative since you basically spam everything on here with your nonsensical walls of text and endless replies to yourself.
BBTiA would be better off without your ill-informed, self righteous, passive aggressive nonsense.
Ill informed, self-righteous I can go with, but passive aggressive? I think of myself as aggressive-aggressive.
Peace Pull T,
PS lol, walls of text, lol
"So have you profiled me now like you did Martin?"
What are you talking about?
Joe, If the story we're hearing goes something like this... Rangers signed Michael Young to an 80 mil contract a few years ago, it turns out he can't play defense really well anymore, so they sign a better 3b option and tell him to get ready for DH/Utility Role. He accepts it but then says something about how he doesn't see that as being the long term role for him and he won't be happy with it... Then how are the Rangers treating him like shit? The Rangers have a guy under contract for 3 more years and they don't think he can perform in the role that he thinks should be his... So they are trying to trade him, how does that make them the bad guys?
Joe: "If MY declined so much that he couldn't hit anymore than fine get rid of him, but he is still a good hitter and an excellent leader."
So, what you are saying is that he doesn't suck enough? So, if he got a little worse, you would be okay throwing him out?
I think this is really an issue of what value you expect from your players. You just value him a little higher than does most everyone else. This isn't an issue of loyalty to a player at all.
1. Joe watches way too much Criminal Minds with all this profiling stuff.
2. When the Rangers traded my first favorite player Dean Palmer for Tom freaking Goodwin I was 10 or so and pretty pissed off too. But I still rooted for Tom Goodwin and the Rangers just like your sister should still root for the Rangers if MY gets traded.
I don't know what the hell to think of this thread, but I think it's better off left locked for a good 24 hours or so. Or forever. Good God.
What concerns me about this thread is that it was clearly obvious right from the get-go what was eventually going to happen (mentioning family in this context is extremely flammable), and the more time I have to spend monitoring this crap, the less time I have to write. I like the forum, but I'm clearly going to have to re-evaluate things if a few more threads devolve into this kind of crap. I don't mind strong disagreement in the slightest, but I do mind the name-calling and other such jackassery.
And Criminal Minds creeps me the hell out. There's also no chemistry between the principal actors.
