Make fun of the people involved if you want. After all, everyone here hides behind a keyboard.
Your preaching to the choir, here Rem. I didn't make fun of Haynes, and actually went on a diatribe myself on the derisive terms used against Anderson and recently on "O'Binder". I'm with you on whether or not folks would respond the same way to these personalities if they knew them personally. We all know the answer to that one. But your position is making this into a personal issue, which (excepting a few) the vast majority have not taken part in. I see folks glad that the FO is showing some signs of a change in mentality. Eating a contract when the body is still warm is a new concept for this regime. As I think about it, I would probably avoid the subject with Haynes if I met him because it probably wouldn't be very polite to bring up how bad he has stunk at his job the last two years in a social setting. I am sorry things didn't work out for Jimmy, but it's time for him to find a different line of work. Still, I am glad for the move in the best interests of the ballclub that we both root for. That is not rejoicing at someone else's misfortune, but understanding that some guys will not work out on the team.
