You use phrases like "witless wonder" and "Francoma" and characterize his managerial technique as sitting their spitting into a spittoon. I'm sorry, but that tells the rest of us that you're not interested in a legitimate discussion.
Again, its too bad if you don't like the nicknames. I would only be too happy to engage in a debate about FRANCOMA'S weaknesses...and strengths..as a manager. Overall he gets a C from me.
Yes, I called that specific post stupid. As I recall -- and maybe my memory is faulty -- you've had posts that I've agreed with and even if I disagreed with some others, you posted in an intelligent manner. So I'm not going to post with a broad brush like you did. You didn't like my posts and called me arrogant and stupid. I thought one specific post was idiotic, so I called that specific post stupid. That you can't see the difference tells all of us a lot about you and illustrates you quick you are to jump to extremes. People quick to jump to extremes usually aren't interested in legitimate discussion.
And that inferred that I was calling you stupid -- well, I didn't realize you were so thin-skinned.
Most public personalities understand that they are targets for both criticism and applause.
Well no chit Sherlock. And I was letting you rant on about Tito anyway you want. What's so hard to understand. But if another person is ranting on in a childish, immature fashion, I DON'T HAVE to engage in a discussion with that person.
You do not like debating the merits of FRANCOMA because you are a FRANCOMA apologist. He was highly overrated and most mediocre. Do you honestly think he would have had the cajones to remove Hanrahan today? That saved a chance to win the game for us. I will give Francoma this: he placated his players very well. Too well. But he was a TERRIBLE in game tactician and stubborn as hell. Fortunately, he is gone.
Beyond the rest of your post on Francona -- like I posted before. You already have your mind locked into your own reality, so I'm not going to get any more involved in a useless back-and-forth concerning what Francona did or didn't do as manager.
Last I checked you are NOT the moderator here and therefore do not make the rules.
Seriously -- again with "the rules. Geez guy -- get help. I was just expressing my OPINION that it's a useless excercise. If you don't agree -- FINE. Do whatever the heck you like. But really -- are you that insecure that when someone expresses an opinion like that you're interpretting it as a rule.
It was phrased as a "should", referring to how you view good behavior on the part of other posters. Thats arrogant.
Geez, maybe I am arrogant, but I'm not so dillusional to think that I can magically create some rule simply because I'm posting an opinion on a subject.
But thank you if you think I do have that power. I mean, why else would you keep bringing it up that I'm creating some rule that you HAVE to follow.
So on that note:
I hearbye allow pumpsie or anyother poster engage in any useless comparison until their heart's content.
How kind of you to allow us to make "useless" comparisons. More arrogance. You are in no position to determine what is useful or not useful here. Sorry to rain on your arrogant parade.
