I am not trying to be insulting. I am trying to show you that you are incorrect in something you said. There is a huge difference. If I were insulting you, I would have called you named such as idiot, or moron. But I didn't, because I wasn't trying to insult you. I was simply trying to tell you that what you are perceiving to happen, isn't. At least not with the frequency that you had implied. It isn't an opinion that says that, there are facts involved in it. You very well could be right when you said things like they don't have a plan up there or that Mesoraco might just be a back up (things I can't say I agree with on Mesoraco). But when you say that they both chase pitches out of the zone, implying that they do so more than others, I felt the need to show you otherwise because if I interpreted what you were attempting to say about them, it is untrue.
As for me "always having to be right", it isn't so much that I have to, it is that I generally don't start to say something unless I have a strong feeling that I AM right about what I am going to say. When I don't know, or don't have a good reasoning behind what I believe, I just don't talk. Well, except in those few scenarios were we get overemotional to a scenario.
I decided to delete my response. There's no use in arguing with you.
