    Yep.

    If you have talent but don't produce when called on, you'll find PT hard to come by. Produce and you'll find yourself out there a lot. Mes worked on his game a lot this spring and its showing.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    1 out. Bases loaded. 3rd Inning.

    Bruce K's on 3 pitches.
    Mez with an easy comebacker to the pitcher.
    Wasted opportunity. Ugh.

    3 games in 4 days for Mes. He's overexposed.

    He's getting too many consistent starts. You just can't overwork young catchers like this.

    I'd have posted the same on a Jay Bruce thread if there was one readily available.

    It was a moment of frustration.

    I guess I'm the only one who has those.

    I keep forgetting how sensitive and controversial this board is. As a friend of mine who used to post here said to me offline "all they do on Redszone is try and one up eachother all the time. I'm done there."

    Gave me a good laugh because he was dead on.

    My cousin used to post on a bass fishing message board. He told me you wouldn't believe how many fights broke out on that one. He had to quit posting because he couldn't take it anymore. A BASS FISHING MESSAGE BOARD!!!! That one made me laugh for a long while.

    They might go fishing instead of posting, then you're just taking as revenue out of Boss and Giks 7-11 slush fund

    God I hope not. Treating each failure in baseball, a game where, when you bat, you fail much much more often than you succeed, as something to be updated to further an agenda gets just awful to read.

    There's big money in bass fishing. I know a guy who runs some local tournaments and even in those the prize is pretty significant ($1000-ish for first). It's no wonder fights break out on there, as they do anywhere when money is involved.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Yeah. My cousin is a pretty intense outdoorsman. He grew up hunting deer with bow & arrow, rifles, tons of fishing including going to Minnesota a lot in his younger days. He has a concealed carry license. His Dad ran a local gun club. He grew up around Darryl Pace and competing in a lot of archery and rifle shooting competitions. He loves to bass fish though and has his own boat.

    He is a huge internet junkie, like me. But I'm more mainstream sports. He's more outdoors stuff. But he gets really intense and will argue with the best of them. Worse than me .

    I found it comical that people would actually fight on a Bass Fishing message board.

    Pretty intense arguements over VOBF (Value over Bait Fish)
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
