Re: Reds acquire Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald for Drew Stubbs and Didi Gregorious
You do realize we're simply chatting on an internet message board and not typing up our college doctorate dissertation....right? I wasn't aware that we had to choose our words quite so carefully in such a casual environment. Apparently I was mistaken.
"None of the previous content should be construed as facts, these are all opinions or thoughts that I believe to be true even though they may not actually be true. Some things that I may believe to be facts were actually information gathered from the internet which does not have any sort of fact checking guru supervising it. Reader beware."
Maybe we should all include this phrase in our signatures? Lots of absolutes are quoted around here as facts but they're just bits of information we've gathered off of the net. Yet we're trusting that information as factual....how many people have actually done the research to verify that these things are accurate? I sure don't. There could be some guy at baseballreference.com who is dyslexic and has completely screwed up everybody's projections for Billy Hamilton going forward. Oh darn.
Semantics. I think a bit of common sense should simply be applied.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
