Do you want to discuss baseball or is this about beating your chest because you've identified yourself with the success of others achieved through no accomplishment or contribution of your own?
Just some friendly advice:
The ORG is a baseball discussion board that uses a Redscentric prism to discuss baseball-related stuff. It has a well-earned reputation for being one of the best sites on the internet for compelling, high quality baseball discussion that serves fans across the full gamut of baseball interests (stat-head to traditionalist to every other permutation). There is room for talking about all things baseball but the level of discourse is expected to be high quality. That means the content contributed is expected to be interesting and capable of stimulating fun discussion that in the best case scenario stimulates new insight, and in all cases respects board rules. Though not an absolute requirement, since this is Redszone, there is also an expectation that threads will in some way speak to things of interest to the Reds baseball team. So a Cards Kum Ba Ya thread really doesn't conform to the spirit of this community.
The fact that others open a thread does not absolve the OP of their obligations to meet these standards.
"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
