    Anyone know what happened to Scrap Irony?

    Just wondering if anyone knows what happened to the poster Scrap Irony? He was a longtime and frequent poster on RedsZone that I haven't seen around for a while. While he and I were not always in agreement, particularly on politics, he was very knowledgeable on most any subject and like most of us, a big Reds fan. I no longer post on the political board. Hope everything is OK with him.

    Seems like his last few posts got pretty heated and hasn't even visited Redszone since. Maybe he just had enough and left? Hopefully that's the reason and nothing happened to him personally.

    I miss Scrap Irony, so I did a little digging. From the members list, I see he has not even visited the board since April 19. I looked at his last posts from a few days prior to that date, and you are right about the heated exchanges.

    Hopefully, he comes back soon.

    It appears his last exchanges on this board were about Cingrani.

    I think this thread ought to be about concern for Scrap Irony.

    I agree. Somehow it became about the Political forum. Let's get back to RANDY's first posts and concentrate on Scrap Irony. Anyone know him in real life?

    I can't guarantee its the same dude, but a "Scrap Irony" commented on this FanGraphs post:

    And he is making an excellent argument.

    Yeah, I don't know if I fully buy what he's selling. He may wanna pump the brakes on saying that the defense will be a 30 run swing....I was thinking 20 myself... But philosophically I agree with what he's saying. Wish he'd come back here. We need someone to offset the Chicken Little bunch.
