    Re: Sam LeCure Tweets Out

    I always get a kick out of people being against twitter. Idiots will be idiots will be idiots. Twitter is an amazing thing that is way more good than it is bad.

    As for Sam, nothing good comes from that. That is a battle he will never win.

    EDIT: For the record, I wasn't calling people who are against twitter idiots. I just meant idiots will find a way to be idiots no matter what. Don't blame twitter for it.

    If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. No shame in that. Some guys can, some guys can't. The team should have a social media and teach guys ways to deal with the crap.
    No one should have stand some of what is put on Twitter. There are some hateful, vile things said about players, coaches, etc.

    Criticism is part of the job. I have a feeling, though, LeCure isn't reacting to mere criticism.

    In the history of player-fan interactions, it ranks below Cobb and Dibble, and even below Ted Williams.

    I suppose. But jeez, you going to react to everything bad in all the various social media? There is a whole lot of garbage out there. I mean, RZ is pretty tame and no Reds post here.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    While there isn't anything inherently wrong with Twitter, I do think some players are better off without it. I would think that after what 3 years in the majors?, that he would get that fans are gonna be fans.

    What's ironic about this is I feel Sam is one of the "favorites" of Red's fans (at least here on RZ). Nobody's in Joey's class when it comes to escaping criticism, but Sam is certainly up there. And Sam is no Joey.

    Re: Sam LeCure Tweets Out

    I don't use Twitter or know how to.

    But in terms of social media, message boards, comment sections......I believe people should have to use their real names and you should be able to click on that name and get their phone number and address.

    Let's see how many people are rude, obnoxious, insulting, condescending, big talkers, etc........when they can easily be found/are accessible. Violence might increase, but hey.........no more hiding behind a keyboard or mobile phone.

    Call it.......THE PURGE!

    I know you are kinda joking, but I think that scenario might even worse than the present one, to be honest. I mean, I know all of my info is already basically on line for folks to cull if they really want to -- but I want absolutely no part of a service that demands I readily give it up for free to every joe schmo...

    I love Twitter, but never directly criticize a player's performance. That's what message boards are for. Also, just because you critique a player, doesn't mean you "hate" them. That's junior high nonsense and I'm surprised Sam would lower himself to that level. I take this as Sam letting his struggles on the mound get to him. That's not a good thing and hopefully it isn't the case here.

    Yeah, there some tongue and cheek in my comment.

    But imagine if there was some accountability for what we all said where someone could confront you in person. Alot of people might think twice.

    Always brings me back to that picture I can't post of the big, fat, naked guy behind the computer. Or that humorous Brad Paisley song "Online". Lots of pretenders and wanna-be's posting on the internet and twitter.

    Probably true. In fact, Twitter most likely wouldn't exist if those were the rules. That is, unless I am grossly overestimating the general public's need for privacy.

    Of course, there have already been so many epic fails on Twitter (Anthony Weiner says "hi") that I wonder sometimes whether people even understand quite how public their tweets are.

    Just for the record, I'm 6'3'' , have been mistaken for Brad Pitt, and always wear a suit and tie when I post.
