It seems the biggest issue that gets in the way of fans on the Redszone having some degree of harmony is a philosophical difference in opinion about an offensive players approach (not just our offensive players) at the plate. Not making an out is king on one hand, and on the other hand putting the ball in play seems to be paramount.
Not that there is anything wrong with having a difference of opinion, but a high degree of animosity stems from this difference. My stance is everything in the organization seems to stem from that singular thing, a philosophical view of an offensive approach.
Who the Owner should hire for GM, who the GM should hire for field manager, who the COO hires to broadcast games, what players to keep, who to get rid of, who should be acquired, what any one players worth is (ours, theirs), who should play, where they should play, where they should bat in the lineup and so on can all be traced back to philosophy.
Your philosophy, my philosophy, the media's philosophy even get's some play. It's fair to debate these things as fans IMO so don't get me wrong I'm not saying that any of the philosophy's are wrong persay. Because IMO most all of the opinions that are usually tossed about have had some degree of success just about anywhere you look.
Problem is IMO that there is perhaps a lack of communication, either you don't get me and vice-versa and/or people simply are not taking the time to read and completely understand the intended conclusion. I guess I could be wrong and that most everyone completely understands the opposing point of view and just disagrees. I do think there is plenty of the former, but it's probably mainly the latter.
So I guess I wanna know if it's the former (just not getting the opposition's view) then what is it you are having trouble with figuring out?
If the latter is the case then why? Why is it that people value their opinion so much that there is no room for the other, why is that opposing philosphy wrong?
Or do I have it wrong? Is this even the correct argument, i'm not sure. Perhaps that's why am struggling with the different viewpoint.
