What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
"Let's see a show of hands as to how many think this is a team destined for the playoffs.OK...just as I thought. Lots of indecision, lots of hands going up halfway then being pulled back."
That was a little ridiculous... You cannot seriously have had any indecision as to whether they were going to make the playoffs AT ALL
Eric I have to call you on this. So, you mean to say that if you THINK you are right and/or have the stats to back it up when you ARE right, you can be an asshole on this or any board? Seriously? That is what you are saying here:
"Call him an asshole if you'd like, he probably is an arrogant bastard, but A reasoned opinion is totally, completely, fully 100 percent right on this.
I get accused of being an arrogant asshole on this site all the time, but I will generally always contend that it's not arrogance if it's right. After all, the truth hurts way more than bullshit does."
I can speak for myself here; I don't mind being corrected, informed or even proven wrong but if you are being a complete dick while doing it, it won't matter if you are right. You're being a prick just superceded any additional knowledge you gave. Clear as mud?
Dude, if you act like an an asshole you probably are one. And taking small sample sizes to prove your point apparently justifies your doom and gloom attitude. I Would love to see them sweep the next 2 series and roll into the playoffs on a high note. But if they don't and fumble their way into an early playoff exit I will still love this team. Why is there so much hate and negativity on this site?
Ditto on everything Eric said.
I was really looking forward to a 162-0 season and a complete sweep of the playoffs. Yet, once again this team dissapointed me... Gosh!!!
Reagan asks why there is so much hate and negativity on this site, and I die of laughter:@ Spanks: you're a tool. Oh and you're late for your shift at Wal-Mart. Those carts aren't going to gather themselves. Please find another team to root for because you suck as a person.

My crime? Criticizing Josh Hamilton.
Gotta agree with liver here. In fact, I'm a little shocked that Eric, who seems to pride himself on being even-keeled and rational, would come down on the side of such a indefensibly rude person as a reasoned opinion. He's not "100% right." He's called me out twice for saying things that apparently offended him so deeply that he felt compelled to call me me an idiot, fucking stupid, an asshole, a spoiled brat, and more. I asked him to link me to the comments that offended him, but he disappeared.
So I found the comments he's referring to, and they were left by someone else entirely. All that venom was spewed at me for something I never said, while at the same time he's imploring this site to return to good natured banter. Are you KIDDING ME? Even if I had said what he said I said, it wouldn't justify his remarks. People are entitled to express their opinions without being blasted. It's the height of irony that the ugliest people on this forum are the ones offended by negativity regarding the Rangers. "Stop being so negative about this team! Die, you goddamn moron asshole shitface!" Well, gee, when you put it that way...
But by all means, let's continue to be ugly to each other over something we all love, right up to the point when Joey gets sick of our shit and shuts the forums down altogether.
Ok, this is my last post on the subject. Spanks if you act like a tool that hates his team when they are struggling, trust me, they don't want you or need you as a fan. I guess I just don't like unwarranted negativity that stems from the Rangers not playing perfect baseball recently. All you're trying to do is start shit (good job by the way), but by doing that no-one will take any of your future posts seriously.
A real fan doesn't hate his team when play .500 ball for a small stretch. Bandwagoners do. You might check out the nationals, they have a pretty good record.
BTW, that's not criticism bro, that's hate. I see counseling in your future if you believe the stupid shit you write.
And there you go again.
What negative things have I said about this team? Not Josh Hamilton. The team. What shit have I started? Where have I been a tool? Where have I said I hate this team or any player on it? What stupid shit have I said? Be specific. Post links. Do some research. I welcome it.
Jeez, yall guys make me almost miss Rick in Ft. Worth...
