Hingham Hammer's comment:
TWM, you're a Big Time Phony.
"show me posts where I was dumb"
So many to pick from. Where should I start?
Betances was 1 of 3 "killer bees" you raved about.
Two are MIA and the last a BP arm. Big deal.
Montero was going to be a HOF catcher according to you. Turns out he's Hall of Shame material. I NAILED THAT ONE.
Melanson was to be the next Mo. Too funny.
You posted a while back that with the BP struggling "the starters would be forced into finishing games". Not even close. That's "chest pounding".
I thought going into the season the Yankees would be better then there showing. I felt if they signed Drew and moved jeter to 3rd. they would be a much better club.
Turns out I was wrong. Something you can never admit. Yankees are the oldest team in MLB and are playing like it.
You vanished during last year's postseason but there is no doubt in anybody's mind you would have resurfaced had the Sox been knocked out.
That is why you are viewed here as being a "Phony". Well deserved I might add.
It would help when you take me out of context to provide examples which you never can.
Strange if "there are so many".
I probably wrote one time that Betances and Banuelos were good prospects, which they still are. Brackman however was never in their class, he never had the stuff, control issues, too many moving parts. Banuelos age 23 is at SWB AAA, he had TJ surgery last season.
No one can deny Montero's status as a highly touted prospect by all of the scouting services when he was in NY whether he makes it or not is not up to me.
I make an innocent comment/opinion on certain issues or players that becomes etched in your feeble mind forever. From my original comment you tend to embellish upon it to distort whatever I've said to take on a new meaning/life.
Such as Melancon. When he was in the Yankee organization he was one their top pen guy and closer at AA, and then AAA, David Robertson was Melancon's set up. I think at one point when Mariano was rumored to be considering retirement I commented that Melancon would be considered as the Yankees closer. Only because at that point in time the Yankees had no one else in the entire organization to close, no one. Melancon was brought up given his opportunities but could not ever pitch under pressure. He was eventually traded to Houston with a no name for Lance Berkman. Then later moved to Boston where had the same exact control/pressure problems he displayed in NY. Melancon now seems to have found a home with the Pirates.
But I never wrote that Melancon was the 2nd coming of Mariano Rivera, that's one of your fairy tales used as a tool to bash me.
You're nothing more than a trouble maker, a name caller, all you have ever been on any site that you've ever been on.
My mistake was calling you out for your nasty attacks against other posters. Referring to two hispanic brothers who you disliked as "sp*c and span". Badgering Yankee Diva constantly for no reason and Canadian Papi who ultimately had you bounced from that site for for calling his wife names which are unmentionables on the web..
I have no desire to be your friend or pen pal. You are not here to discuss baseball, ignore me as difficult as it may be for you, I know attacking you gives you some purpose in life, I'll ignore you and things will be much better here for everyone else.
