What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I just wanted to point out that over the past season who most of you crucified... Young, Kinsler, Lewis, Holland, Cruz, etc.
I defended them all and showed data to justify their worthiness. OOps! And Moreland will come on in the future.
I'd say I am batting about .750 on here. Commander and Andy, etc. too. The rest? Ehhhh, not so much buddy...
But, hell, I don't know baseball.
You are a bigger bouche than C J on his worst douche day.
Yep, I am a "bouche". And you are a "baseball guy".
Guys, can't we all just get along? The Rangers are in the midst of an epic World Series. Anything can happen. These have been some wild games, and there's at least 2 more to come.
I crucify Young (and still do) for his defense. Colby Lewis earned his more than most, mainly because of his home runs. And Moreland, with any foreseeable improvement, may never much more than a league average 1B. ( league average not meaning replacement level mind you, but in comparison with the other 29 starting 1b in the MLB.)
I like to bash Kinsler personally. Not because of his production, but because of his attitude, body language, and that he is a pike. Still a top 3 2B though..
Apparently you are "Keystone Heavy". A team in the WS that trust Michael at almost every IF position must be stupid! He :brung us". I like Moreland. He has been known as having a good eye, but also as a defensive liability in the minors. I didn't want Chris Davis gone, and still don't like that trade. But Mitch is what he is. I think he is what we need here. .. Cheap, and allowing space for Michael and Nap. Value comes in different aspects. When it comes to Lewis, you give me a guy who does what he does innings wise and roughly 80% of his HR are solos? I'll take it. He coujld make a ton elsewhere. And Holland is who I defended most, and those guys are where? Same thing with Kinsler, Cruz, etc. You guys have short memories.
Just because a team is in the world series doesn't mean that they are great at every aspect of every position on the field. I don't care if we won 140 games this season and swept the world series, that doesn't automatically mean that Young's defense is good. I would rather have Moreland than Davis, but he just was all around not good this year. And 200 innigns are always nice by a starter, but a 4.40 ERA, 4.54 FIP is not.
Keystone - I like your passion. But in your analogy, I;d not trade a soul. This team has earned their position, and will likely win the World Series. Try to destruct the 1992 Cowboys. It can't be done. It IS the "perfect storm".
Only Ricky in Fort Worth would come on here after one of the greatest Ranger games and start blasting ppl who are not as "intelligent" as him. Your arrogance is the only "80 grade" you have sir. Good grief. Enough is enough. I fear the day I see a dead horse on the side of a road because I know that Ricky in Fort Worth will be there beating it with a baseball bat showing off this perfect swing.
Ricky is the reason I rarely visit the forum anymore. He stifles good discussions with his "I'm right all the time" attitude. I check in every now and then to see if things are the same and, yes, they are. You are a fool, Ricky and this site is lesser because of you. You run off intelligent baseball people because like me, they avoid Jr High morons. Congratulations on being king of nothing.
I think the time has come for me to get some moderation up in here.
