    Did the Merged thread about Dunn's.................

    pathetic finish get so out of hand that it was completely erased? Had to go to baseball practice last night and noticed it had vanished. Amazing.

    It must be, it doesn't show up in a search of my posts.

    That's kind of odd. I know the subject isn't exactly new, but it seemed to be civil.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    It is odd. I was looking the other day for that post that was merged about all time least favorite Reds but I can't find it any more. I hadn't read the Dunn thread and there weren't any complaints about it so I have no idea what happened to it.

    It must have really turned south after 6:30 or so, because the discussion seemed just fine after my last post on it...

    Dunn obviously spends his time hacking into message boards to delete negative posts. You know, since he doesn't care about improving his game and all.

    I posted in it a couple of times and the posts don't show up in my post history. Maybe the mods dragged it off to the bat cave so they could spray paint a big red number "5" on it (for rule #5)?

    I wasn't aware that there was an excessive player criticism in that thread. I think Juan Castro gets more unwarranted criticism on the board than Dunn ever has.

    That's exactly what I was arguing in that thread. Unless things took a dramatic turn last night, I didn't notice "excessive player criticism"--I thought the discussion was intereting and certainly civil.

    Then again, we have no idea why the thread was removed or by whom, so we're just speculating at this point. But it would indeed be very disappointing if the thread was deleted due to perceived "excessive player criticism."

    Yeah RT. The tone, at least the direction I was going with it, was one of relative value -- not exactly criticism. Hopefully we can get a mod to clear it up.

    The one thing that those two threads have in common is that I merged each of them with existing threads, for what that's worth. It's nothing that hasn't been done dozens of times in the past, however, and the new merged threads showed up for quite some time thereafter. I'm certain that no one deleted them. I'm as puzzled as you guys are.

    Maybe that's a good thing.

    Just like Ohio weather, just wait a few minutes. Another one will appear.

    I watched "A Haunting" last night on the Discovery Channel. Maybe spirits with ill intentions had something to do with it?

    Yeah, that's why I mentioned it. Maybe a glitch with the upgrade?

    Well, let's just start up that thread again! I'm sure we can all remember what we posted -- it's not like we haven't posted all those same ideas before.
