But nice attempt at trying to revise the history of the conversation. There's no person on this board that wouldn't be disappointed if Bruce had finished with a sub-.800 OPS. So really, the condescension is a bit uncalled for; especially since I recall you getting upset at someone just the other day in the game thread for doing exactly what it is you're doing here.
That's not at all what I was doing here. Not even close. The condescension I referred to was the posters who constantly talk down to others, as if they're somehow superior to them. I never do that. If I wanted to be that way, I could have gone back and found the quote and used it to single that person out, but that's a jerk move and I'm not the least bit interested in being that way. Honestly, I had no memory of who posted it and didn't care. I just thought it was odd at the time and still do.
As for everyone being disappointed if Jay doesn't OPS over .800, you can leave me out of that group. He was and still is on pace to drive in 100+ runs and hit 25-30 HRs, while getting numerous clutch hits and playing great RF defense. If anyone considers that a disappointing season, then I guess we just have different standards. As usual, I respect your opinion, even if you don't respect mine.
