You don't need to take someone's recognition of a player's good day as a personal jab that you need to defend. If someone said "Didi with another 2-5 day, boy are we going to regret that trade," then maybe it's worth some debate.
Actually, if you look on this thread, most people outside of the OP don't make a point of updating with bad stats. Like I stated before, the OP (I really need to look up his name, but I am a lazy, lazy man) has done a good job of just doing updates. Other than that, it's mostly been people biding their time waiting to post a hot streak by someone they thought would be a good player with the Reds. yet instead the Reds dealt that player.
I am not taking it as a personal jab (well, besides the time it was and stated as much). I just hate something that started as a thread that actually looks back on a Reds trade with objectivity, but became something else. It becomes a thread about "oh dear God why did we deal that guy?!" Overall stats with updates from the last update are great. I enjoy that. Yet when people update 1 day or a random hot streak and ignore the rest, well, that is just poor form. Why haven't people posted about Stubb's recent cold streak? Why did Didi go through a 2 for 14 streak before Doug decided he was doing work? Why was it a big deal before that, and then suddenly nothing? Why are there no posts about Stubbs being below .600 before his hot streak? That is my point.
Make updates, not cherry picking stats because you liked them.
As for chilling out, I am not upset in the least. I am articulating an opinion. Sometimes that can be done with brevity, and sometimes it cannot. The length or the matter at hand does not purvey anger.
