I too, enjoy TRF's posts.
However, I think all of these proclomations about leaving the board, etc... are a bit self-indulgant.
1.This is a baseball message board.
2. It is a community of sorts.
I think some people get so locked in to #2 that they sometimes forget about #1.
It's funny, I've loved being a member of Redszone since the day I signed up. IMO, nothing has ever changed for me with the board. I can easily ignore bad posters and redundant thoughts and blow them off as being part of the deal with internet message boards. Big deal.
I am truly baffled at the soap-opera-esque production some posters have put on recently. Yet, not even those melodramatic posts have tainted my enjoyment of the board.
I guess I just don't get it.
To be fair, TRF didn't exactly go on a fairwell tour. He announced his intentions basically with a single post in a thread.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
