    [QUOTE]Going into this series, our best shot was to outslug them in a game and Ellsbury was the most likely guy to lead in that effort. He has been outstanding offensively and defensively. That should give him the edge over Granderson. No pitcher has won the MVP since 1984. That should rule out Verlander when there are deserving position playerfs also putting up tremendous numbers. When we look closely, Ellsbury's numbers are tremendous. 45 doubles, 5 triples, 31 Dingers, .321 average, over 200 hits, Plus 15.6 UZR/150 in CF, over 100 RBI as a lead off guy. Just a superb year.

    1) I have never said "Dominican Milkshake" before today, when you brought it up. that's a very crude expression I would never use. Since you are lying about that, what else are you lying about?

    Perhaps you did not say "milkshake" after all - but Dominican Jamba Juice is a label, and a racist one at that. Somehow you deem the words "Dominican Milkshake" as "crude expression" but "Dominican Jamba Juice" is polite? 

    Your posts were not difficult to locate, you have many rants like this all over the forum. I almost said something about it when I saw it the day you wrote "Dominican Jamba Juice," but I could not get away from the fact you also called me a liar in that thread as well, saying I was lying about living in Cambodia. Well I am not a liar.


    You lose.

    Try and read this article by ESPN writer Mike Fish and ask your self if ANYTHING I've said is untrue. It documents the history of the DR regarding PED use and baseball. If I rant about it sometimes, it's because I hate PED use. I hate what it's done to baseball. I hate when players get accolades because of cheating.  I believe it should be a level playing field, and it's not.


    I knew I had never said "dominican milkshake" because it was not a phrase I would have used. And that was correct. 

    It was about reporting. It was about discussing both sides, and being more aware of the details than many of you. It was about what probably turns out to be an accurate projection of Navarro as a player. In my opinion, he has one chance of making it significantly as a player, and it wouldn't surprise me if he does turn out to be a bigtime power hitting 3rd baseman someday. But if he does it is highly likely to be chemically induced considering where he is right now in his game and the culture of ped use in the DR. If some of you are not aware of Mike Fish's article I suggest you read it.

    Re: NEWS FLASH - In case you haven't noticed Ellsbury is having one of the greatest years ever for a lead off batter!

    Really. Read the article. It will open your mind about the situation in the DR. 

    Burrito, I'm sorry but I knew I didn't use the term you described. In the context of all of Expitch's BS, it made me angry. And I didn't use the phrase you described so I did have a right to be angry. I responded to what looked to be a lie. And it was in fact a lie. Just an unintentional one on your part and that makes it different. Please look at it from my perspective some. I knew I had never said that. 

    I married someone from South America. I even lived in South America for a while. I'm not racist. I'm just against what has been a rampant PED use problem in the DR and when I see people from the center of the PED world ( Santo Domingo ) go from zero to hero like that it bothers me. And when I look at guys like Navarro, who appears to have little talent but maybe they kept him around because there is always some potential for becoming a star from ped use. The Sox did dump him though and I think that is the way such situations should be handled. It appeared to some baseball observers that he was never going to be a good player naturally, so they dumped him.

    If you follow news reports on different player discussions over time, you find that the potential for PED use has been openly discussed in player evaluations. When they talk about player acquisitions, the subject of potential PED use comes into the conversation sometimes. I would think that it is even factored into draft discussions. It's a sordid part of baseball and it's potential use is even factored into who gets signed or not signed. And sometimes it does not appear to be a negative in those discussions in mlb. Sometimes it appears that the possibility of ped use is a plus. It is very sad but in the competitive world of baseball it may actually be percieved by some as a plus, an enhancement to that player's desireability.

    It's  sordid world. I just described it as it is. Read Mike Fish's article.

    I started this thread to talk about Ellsbury and the great yer he is having. The only one diverting it off topic is you. I didn't start this thread to talk about whether Bautista is on PEDs or not. You just wouldn't shut up about it, basically ruining this thread.

    And it is turning out that Ellsbury is becoming a real mvp candidate right before our eyes. It is turning out that yes, he is a front line mvp candidate. It was a good thread until it was diverted by you.

    Nope. You waved a red flag about Baustista, in your own words. "He is so tainted...." That was your second transgression. Do you expect such irresponsibility to keep going unnoticed and unchallenged? You are not man enough to take responsibility for what you state and how you state it. You got angry because you got nailed twice for playing loose and easy with men's reputations. What 100, 200, or 300 hundred writers say does not justify what you say on your own terms. Thus the red herring.
    That is, and has been from the start, my quarrel with you. You say that you made the remark about Bautista in passing. Remarks like that should not be made in passing, like noting, for example, that a player is now showing his socks. Yours was more of the hit and run driver kind. If you had taken the pains at the outset to qualify the remark, even with a simple sentence that began with "but,"  there would have been no "diversion."
    You told a poster that he can't "handle the truth." ( Your Nicholson imitation? ) You can't handle being put in your place.

    Expitch, let's discuss this 100 more times ok. "tainted" to me meant under suspicion and I think a lot of people know Buatista has been under suspicion. If you want to spend another 100 posts "putting me in my place" over this stupid, non issue, you have failed miserably and shown yourself to be a worthless poster who specializes in drivel.

    That is the "truth" you can't handle.

    I don't like saying it but after 100 posts of pure BS from you over this minor issue, it is necessary to say it. If you want to discuss this more I will feel very free to put you exactly in your place.
