    Pujols is struggling, Lowrie is hitting LHP at a high level. That won't last.

    Smiley games played in April count just as much as games in September.  You and Smart-Perception should come out to Fenway for your first Sox game of the year.....I'll be there and I'll by you a beer....Go Brewers!

    Beni does bait but his OPs are often close to being reality such as:

    Jeter is having a tough time at the plate.
    Jeter is overpaid.
    Yankee have many aging players.
    SI chooses Boston to take it all this year.
    Oddsmakers favor Red Sox.
    Red Sox won the Winter FA Sweepsteaks
    Lee snubs his nose at Yankees

    All of the above were factually true.
    Beni enjoys adding hyperbole and humor to the facts.

    Meanwhile the Babe responds to Sox fan optimistic posts
    By using his red highlighter and nitpicks in a rude manner
    If someone says that Boston will be better this year
    Babe will ask for documentation and call them out
    Babe is crude, juvenile, and loves using deragatory schoolboy adjectives
    He loves saying Slackey, Lackluster, Beck-Hit, Papsmear, etc.
    Babe acts like a 55 year old going onto 11.
    Babe starts ten times the # of troll threads than Beni does.

    Beni gets the criticism for trolling and Babe gets a free pass, go figure.
    There seem to be many under-the-table, closeted Yankee fans in the forum.
    The ConcernTroll Man has it right.

    Mr. Beni, he just said that you start troll threads and you thanked him.  That doesn't make any sense, in case you didn't know it, being accused of starting troll threads is NOT a compliment.

    Actually, we could trade Marco Scutaro (222) for a catcher, but will
    never trade Marco Scutaro (222) for Derek Jeter (219).

    Thank you Beni because I would hate to see Jeter get his 3,000th hit on a last place team.

    While I can't fill an entire line-up out of yet, perhaps in the interest of creating harmony between RSN and NYU we could form a has been team?

    We can have Jeter at short, with Jason Varitek catching Tim Wakefield and Jorge Posada can stand at the backstop to pick-up the past balls. Add in Colon and Garcia and while we still need a lot of players, we almost have a starting rotation.

    Sorry, silly OPs just motivate silly posts. :)

    If Beni had just provided a link to what that beat reporter said and what many other reporters are saying about Jeter's hitting then the OP would not have been perceived as being "SILLY" What annoys me is that many who come to this forum are not well read. The talk shows in NYC and forums there are loaded with Yankee fans who are very disappointed with Derek Jeter's anemic hitting thus far. I would be worried if we had a SS hitting that poorly with four more years on his contract. It matters not to Steinbrenner since he has deep pockets and a legislature that is funding Yankee Stadium.

    chris, would you be disappointed if you had a left fielder making 20 mil a year with 7 years left on his contract hitting worse than Jeter?

    No it isn't but the topic of the thread is Jeter and not a comparison of how the teams' performance thus far. Please try to keep up. Start another thread if you wish to compare the two teams' performances.

    Posted by Dangerfeld[/QUOTE]DFeld, i see your point, those are certainly compelling cases against Jeter, i think it was a given his late 30's weren't going to be as good as his late 20's, i think it's safe to say the same will apply to Sox players....i guess Jeter's silver lining is that all of them are HOFers...

    Most of those getting worked up about Smiley threads are Yankee fans. Once Smiley starts a thread the Yankee fans come like flies to fresh cowsh-it on the ground. I think that Smiley should just quote the columnists verbatim or else provide links and then see if that disturbs the Yankee fans. Let the Yankee zealots argue against the scribes instead of Beni.

    Most people that post back and forth with Smiley find it good natured and fun or thats how I see it.  I think that those that worry about it take this forum far too seriously.  I like Smiley's postings even if they aren't rooted in reality (for the most part)
