[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tito has thrown in the towel : yes harness, i was a decent poster when i AGREED with you
(which I have done quite a bit - but if i go off the reservation i guess there is no mercy....) I could care less about my prediction of 99 games...last time i checked however i will be probably 3-4 games off....not bad considering all the "injuries"...I could care less about my pedroia mistakes - I cite them frequently and laugh at myself - you on the other hand are a child - unable to admit you are wrong and petty
in your personal attacks...what is this nonsense with Burrito???? Grow up please...I loved the way you totally skipped over your enthusiastic support for the cameron/ellsbury debacle....
"they were both injured so i was not really wrong" argument....I also asked you to make a prediction about our team. Will it make the playoffs? How far will they go? Will Wake be on the roster
? Instead I get more of your filibustering. I'm not trying to trick you just to call you out later...that's your game - I simply want to know what you think because you, like many regulars on this cite, have opinions that interest me.

1) Agreeing with me is not the issue. I think you know many here don't. That's the whole idea about coming to a discussion board - to discuss.
I said you were a decent poster in that you had the courage
to stay positive.
It's easy to get down on a team that's not going well. Decent posters have guts.
They don't bail when things get tough - like you did in August of '09.
2) As for being petty, you have made some of the most abusive posts in the history of this forum. So don't stat pointing fingers my way. If a poster is gonna attack me, he/she can expect the same in return. If that bothers you, then you aren't as thick-skinned as you pretend to be.
3) I didn't skip over the CAM/Jake thing. If Cam was healthy and crapped out, then I'd freely admit it. Unlike you, I don't judge players when they are hurt. I know what it feels like to not be able to perform due to circumstances beyond my control.
It truly sickens me when PC quarterbacks spout beer-can crushing BS ,
only to then b*tch to their wives or kids about petty garbage.
4) I didn't notice UR taking any definitive position on whether the team will make the PO's...or how far they'll go. I say they will definitely
make the playoffs. How about you?
As for projecting their PO trek, it depends on many elements: mainly health and who the opposition is. A bit early to look into the PO crystal ball. I certainly won't bail on them or over-react due to the current state of affairs. How about you?
As for Wake, I think he'll be on a
playoff roster. Just a guess. I wouldn't be surprised if he or Lackey or Drew were left off a given round of PO's, in the hopes the team will be playing beyond round one.
I projected the '09 team would win 100 games. They didn't.
I said last year's squad would have the best road record they've had in a decade. They didn't.
I projected the O's would have a good season this year. They didn't.
See, I admit to coming up short. My world doesn't spiral out of control.
How about yours?
