You and I are usually on the same page but, while I'm not unhappy that Jimmie Haynes is gone and I do welcome that apparent acceptance of the Reds FO that they must, at some times, accept 'sunk costs', we differ on the appareant need of some (many?) on this board to vilify players on a personal basis.
I have not seen one person attack Jimmy personally but have only addressed his failure as a ballplayer.
Oh really? The term 'Jimmah' is used derisvely and was never intended to be anything but. Yet, it's a 'happy' name for Haynes and used liberally by a large number of posters here. Much like 'Orcha' for Jimmy Anderson or 'BaBoon' for Bob Boone. The intent is the same....to make fun or the player/manager or portray them as less of a person than the poster. Let's be clear: any player/manager that's in the Bigs has reached a level that 99.8% of the general population can't and will never, ever, reach. And, that's not limited to MLB....that encompasses everyone of us in our chosen profession. Do you address the people you work with by derisive terms?
Make fun of the people involved if you want. After all, everyone here hides behind a keyboard.
BUT! Let me ask everyone on this board: would you say what you say here about a player; would you call that player by the names you call him here if you were standing face-to-face with that player?
