I am sad that you traded Drew Stubbs to Cleaveland Indians. He was the best thing that I have met in my life. I did not get to go to Reds fest it will be hard when I go this year. I plan on meeting Matt Latos. I wish Drew Stubbs the best

Is this thread a joke? Honey, Drew Stubbs was awful. You aren't excited for what is an obvious upgrade in Choo?

Good post, Michelle. I was one of the last remaining on the Drew Stubbs bandwagon, but I do think he needed a change of scenery. It will be interesting to see what changes he makes in his hitting philosophy with different coaching.

So are u saying Drew Stubbs is the best thing that ever met in your life? That is what I am confused about.

I mean I'm sure he was a nice guy but you make it sound like he is your husband with a remark like that.

I can't believe people loved him so much with how much he struck out.

So you like went to the movies together and stuff? Or you just met him once or twice at Redsfest, exchanged some kind words, and now he is your friend?

I know he isn't your husband, sheesh!

I know a handful of other females who hate the Stubbs trade because "His replacement is just uglier than him, and I can't pronounce the new guys name."

Oh, ladies.

I am still waiting to hear a good argument on why that guy should have stayed here other than his 'Man Candy' status with tri-state women. :rolleyes:

For those not familiar with the OP's body of work, I encourage you to search.

I saw the name and knew exactly how the thread would go.



I have OP's identity narrowed down to three possibilities:

1. Mentally challenged drop dead gorgeous 20-something that likes to chase ballplayers. --I'd like to believe this, but I doubt it.

2. Just some random internet savvy but mentally challenged 6 year old who somehow found their way to RZ. --Slightly more likely

3. Troll --WinWinChickenDin



Seriously...if you like VERY dry humor, grab some corn and do a search. It's like opening the fridge, when you are "kind of hungry." You won't be disappointed but don't expect to walk away with anything useful afterwards either.

The good news for you, Michelle, is that Cleveland is not that far away and sometimes plays the Reds. You will get chances to see him play I'm sure.

Just remember it's a game though and have fun cheering for the guys that will be here in 2013.

I have seen message board trolling that matches the OP's almost perfectly.

That being said, if OP is not trolling, then I really put my foot in my mouth there.

Lesson learned. It happens. REALLY seemed like a troll through. Well, I guess I am the jerk of this thread. But to be fair, I was an inadvertent jerk. Like offering a heartfelt "congrats" on a girl's pregnancy (while pointing to her belly), only to be told she isn't pregnant. Yep, did that too.

Sorry Michelle. And sorry not-pregnant girl at that party 10 years ago.

Your wannabe-righteous indignation is classless, "bro". Is it lonely up there on your pedestal in the clouds? Get over yourself. :thumbup:

I do have an idea what's going behind the scenes-at least enough to confirm this is not trolling. Even if were trolling, the proper thing to do is to report the post for moderator review rather than by making a nasty post, such as one of three earlier posts in this thread.

No one deserves to be ridiculed, and it will never be tolerated here.

Pokey was one of my favorite players too. I thought he was going to be a great second baseman.

When I was young, I used to wear glasses. Sometimes I would wear those goggles, Rec-Specs, like Chris Sabo did. I must have been 3 or 4 years old when my family went to a Reds spring training game.

I was trying to get autographs but really I was too small to get in front, and very shy so I wasn't going to yell at players asking for one. I wanted a Sabo autograph so bad, but I couldn't get one. He said goodbye to everyone and started walking off. My dad says loudly "Hey Chris!" Sabo turned around and my dad was pointing down at me. Sabo got one look my rec specs and came right over and signed my program, shook my hand, and everything. I thought it was the coolest.

Thats very cool! I had a pair of the rec specs too, but rarely wore them as I just was never comfortable with them.

I would have sherpa'd Stubbs on my back to any other MLB team, that's how bad I wanted him off the Reds.


That stated, I wish him nothing but the best. He always seemed like a good guy and he certainly gave the effort that was expected. It wasn't like he was happy with his results, either...

As for Stubbs' dating options, wasn't he with espn's Sam Steele before she moved on to Christian Ponder? Besides the fact that Steele is an obvious jock sniffer, I gotta say that Stubbs is doing all right with the ladies, whether in Cincy, Cleveland, or wherever he might end up...

Yea, it's always hard when one of your favorite players gets traded.
I wish Drew the best. The guy is a great athlete and I hope he does well in Cleveland.

You did something that won't allow you to go to Cleveland for 2 years? Michelle, now THAT is something I'd like to hear about lol!

You didn't expose yourself to a bunch of people at a Cleveland bar did you? Not that I would do anything like that:D , but for some odd reason I am not allowed to go to Cleveland bars anymore!

BlackPete Ibold
02-18-2013, 04:34 PM
I can say that I will not be in Cleveland for the next 2 years no matter what.


But that is all "want to' (or in this case, Don't Want), hard to imagine being banned from one of the crappiest crapholes that was ever crapped into being...

michelle....there is this company out there who will come to your house and install boxes in every room you tell them to....then they will place a round dish on your roof or in your yard.....then if you can come up with the monthly payment you can watch Drew Stubbs on TV playing for the Indians.....it truly is not that expensive when you consider all the other benefits of television.....

in all seriousness, Drew Stubbs will not be missed one iota at the plate, not even a little bit, matter of fact, he will not even be missed on the base paths, he rarely stole bases even against horrible slow wind-up pitchers......some will argue that he did steal but when you have his speed, you steal a base anytime you get a chance and pitchers almost never were worried when Drew was on 1st. Where this team is going to miss Drew is in CF......I have watched Reds baseball for a long time and Drew ranks up there with the best I have seen play CF in the last 25-30 years....Jr couldnt hold a candle to Drew if you compare their CF play as Reds CF'ers only......Drew had the uncanny ability to get to the alley faster than anyone I have ever seen....he sometimes didnt read the deep ball real well but his speed would make up for it and normally you would find him camping under the ball on the track.....he had major trouble running in on the ball and trying to make that running diving catch that is trying to fall for a single.....that was Drews only weakness with the glove.....as much as my next sentence will not make sense to anyone yet everyone will understand....if Drew would have batted .300 and stole several more bases then he wouldve won at least one gold glove....I truly believe that.

It seemed obvious to me that the Reds committed themselves to a post Drew Stubbs era in center field after the all-star break last summer. Enough was enough. Stubbs had been given every opportunity to succeed.

Honey, we are all reds fans first and friends second.....your not getting banned from a website because of one post.....every member here would treat you as friend and fellow reds fan regardless of what you've done wrong in the past.....they might not want to join you for a beer at Willys but we all are here for the same reason, we love our reds......so post away what you done and everything will be fine....who knows, you might even gain a few friends.....you'd be shocked to know what some of us have done in the past.....but that's why it's called the past.
