Re: Point - Counterpoint
Nobody has implied that Homer can be an ace? I say they have. People do it all the time. I've seen people say that Arroyo and Harrang will make good 2 and 3 starters in a few years once Homer gets called up. Nobody said YOU feel this way Steel but your responses seem as though this thread has struck a nerve.
Find something to discuss and you can find someone to take each side, even if the argument is Homer Bailey, future ace? The world is a big place and is full of differing opinions. Say anything about your favorite team, good or bad and there is someone out there who believes it. I'm a Celtic fan and people think Danny Ainge is racist despite the fact that something like 11 of his 12 draft choices have been African Americans. It is an absolute ridiculous stance to take, but some take it. Why? Who the heck knows.
To me your responses have been a little overboard in this thread. Ltlabner never even said anything about anyone on this board. The thread title is random thoughts. Maybe he is talking about things he has read on this board, maybe he is venting over discussions he has with his personal baseball friends. I don't know.
I don't believe anyone interpreted his 12:00 on their 30th birthday line to be a direct quote from anyone. To me he simply meant that it seems a lot of guys are put out to pasture once they reach 30. But you blow up and say that nobody has ever said anything close to that.
Your right, I didn't enter this thread to talk baseball. I entered this thread because I saw a pretty harsh overreaction to a guy posting some, "random thoughts" that didn't mention you or anyone else.
