What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I have been a Rangers fan my entire life. When I buried my grandmother, I put my Rusty Greer signed baseball in her coffin. I knew that her spending eternity next my grandpa would drive her crazy. So I thought I would make eternity a little bit better if she was next to her favorite player. Don't get me wrong, my grandpa liked the Rangers also. He actually died a couple years later. Kinsler was "That young looking fellar with the hippie hair" and when ever his hair wasn't shaggy grandpa couldn't recognize him. Elvis, to him, seemed like such a nice young "n-word" He meant no offense.
So I come here, to these good forums, draped in Rangers pride and curious about off season options, and watch you idiots insult each other incessantly.
I want to trade Olt for Trout, McCutchen, Price, Cano, and Grienke. Oh...wait, Grienke is a free agent. Strike him off that list. As ignorant as the comment is, half you jerks would tell me how much of an idiot I am for making it.
The point is pretty clear. Stop acting like a bunch of pathetic children. Learn to enjoy the game again...because I enjoyed it very much for the first decade of this new century, despite the win/loss record and the merits of SIERA as a legitimate pitching statistic.Sincerely,
I liked the anecdote about your racist Grandfather. Other than that this post was a total waste of my time.
Thank you for your insightful response. And my grandfather wasn't racist. He just was 90 and never changed his vocabulary. Seriously, every damn thread I read today came down to people calling each other idiots and morons. I just wanted to catch up on possible Rangers news and got a little pissed off.
Don't trip, man. It's the Internet. None of the people on here are members of the Rangers front office. It's all speculation, except some is justified and some is irrational.
I am not tripping. I am thrilled that you are not member of the Ranger's front office. And almost all of it is irrational.
Damn, tough crowd. I tried to give you a nice, balanced response. Wasn't expecting you to be a prick about it.
Really, a prick? Dude, hombre, guy, etc. etc. whatever. Who do you think I was pointing out when it comes to acting like children? Oh wait, you were one of those poor souls.
Oh, you made a sweet thread to call everyone else children?
Please tell me more about hippies and the "N" word and how we're obviously not on the same level of fan as you are.
Splutter, my grandfather used that word all the time and he was a mean, ignorant racist. Even if he said it why are you repeating it? We can't choose our grandparents but we can choose our words.
Is this breaking news? 99% of people who take part in blogs or internet postings of any kind are nuts. I'd say the percentage is about the same for the general population.
To SLUT Mcgee:
Any more racist stories bout your granpa. BTW--u use the word --UR RACIST! Seriouslt the best thing u could do is GO AWAY.
The hypocrisy of this post is nuts.
Should of buried yourself instead of a Rusty Greer ball. Half the fun of the off season is the speculation.
eric reining, you are an ignorant, condescending, two-faced, pea-brained wild ass.
That last post was not mine. And congrats all of you for proving my point. Racist because my grandfather didn't change his vocabulary, burying myself with ole Rusty, choosing my words but never using those words to say anything racist. I am impressed, you have almost progressed since the ideas of the old testament.
And you assholes will go on and on insulting each other because of bullshit.
But I am the new guy. If insulting me, getting me kicked or banned or whatever brings you fucks together works, then I will be happy.
Take a midol, Slutter. Why you even care this much is comical.
i didn't say bury yourself with rusty.
Is this shit for real? I mean... REALLY?
Hey guys, he said "N word" not the real thing... that's not racialist at all...
You need to chill bro. The sooner you realize you can't DEFEAT the internetz, the better off you'll be.
So the gist is you don't want to be ridiculed for suggesting ludicrous trades? Go to any ESPN Dallas article, click on the comments and post away. Trade ideas devoid of logic or research are the norm over there. Post them over here and someone like "Eric Reining" will rip it to shreds, but it's generally not anything personal. There have been a lot of trolls though lately (Jim B., T.O., et al) and it has spawned a lot of the ugliness you are so offended by.
If you have a serious idea about the roster (hint: not "trade Young for Cliff Lee!"), it's a free country, knock yourself out. Anyone who responds seriously and maliciously to the obvious troll trade you suggested with Olt is a "moron" and is not worth getting so upset over. Just my opinion.
lol - the guy was RIGHT! Oh my!
The way you beat stuff like this is to NOT POST on it... you guys walked right into his rant and made it pertinent.
What do you mean by "you people" ?
Man, this thread made me smile. Now I'm going to go have a great day.
I was hoping the Tigers would win the Series, but now I'm just hoping for a San Fran sweep so the offseason can get here sooner.
PS. Slutter, just ignore the children. Remember the saying about the squeaky wheel getting the grease.
Oh yeah, and does anyone else think that 'MadBum' is the dumbest nickname for a player since.... ever?
That was a very hypocritical post. Dude comes on here and tells everyone they are idiots and childish for insulting each other while he takes part in the insulting. People who insult others on the Internet are usually unhappy people with a lot of problems. It will all be okay Slutter, just try to be more positive in life. Wake up tomorrow and plan to make the rigt decisions. I'd bet that if you went a whole day and only said nice things to people you would feel better a out yourself. :)
