    Thanks GIK for the information, I understand a whole lot better now.

    I am curious as to why the Red Sox call their board "Son's of Sam Horn" ?? I can think of several great Red Sox to name a board after and Sam Horn isnt one of them.

    Its kinda like changing the name of this board to "Son's of Dan Driessen".

    Ask and you shall receive.

    Back in 1998 a small group of diehard Boston fans with a bent on noise-free intelligent baseball conversation assembled at dickiethon.com's Red Sox message board. It was a haven for those who were tired of sifting through the garbage that pollutes most of the larger sports message boards on the 'net. Spirited debate and deep analysis were the daily fare until those forums eventually crashed in February 2000. In an effort to maintain the terrific core group that had formed I set up a temporary message board on the free ezboard.com network. It was crude and I hadn't the first clue about web design, but it worked… and it also needed a name. Simply put, "Sons of Sam Horn" was the first thing that came to mind.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Plus, Mr. Anderson - Son of Sam should resonate some response of American History.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    He was caught the day I was born.

    Read into that what you will.

    Mike Mueller's Mom, in addition to being the high school Spanish teacher, was a big Elvis fan. She thought the whole thing was "muy malo".

    Oh and about the site changes, I can only speak for myself but I don't know if it matters much to me. I don't know if I'd have much to contribute other than "amen"-ing what someone else has already said. Chat seems to lend itself pretty well to jokes about players smiling too much so, no worries there!

    I really like the site and the quality of the posts, it sure has taught me a lot about baseball over the years, especially the minor league forum! Threads tend to stay on topic and are remarkably civil...unlike a lot of the Bengals forums I've visited.

    Keep on truckin'!

    When Jerry Narron is fired and Krivsky names Dent to replace him, that may be a good name for this board.

    My parents were only slightly bummed. Neither was a huge Elvis fan. That year will always be memorable for me because I was only 8 and I lost my first grandparent. I didn't take that well.
