    Re: My Re-Introduction...

    From time to time there has been speculation on this board as to whether any players read/post here. You seemed to have answered that question and I was personally intrigued by some of the things you posted.

    Some here do put up defenses when someone posts 'insider information' because it's been done before by people that have none and are simply looking to cause problems on the board.

    Hopefully you won't have any problems since, as indicated by your first post in this thread, your spelling and punctuation has improved to an acceptable level.

    Re: My Re-Introduction...

    I'm curious, how did you happen to come across the board?
    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.

    I for one thought for sure you were a troll when you were saying that Bellhorn and EZ were coming up. I just really didn't think you really knew anything. Sorry about that.

    After the Cantu thing, I figured KeyMastur had some connections to the organization. I just think it's a shame he had to have his job put in jeopardy before he decided to be cordial with people.

However, I might attempt to cordially express how good/bad you are at your job every now and then since it's occasionally relevant. Please don't take it personally, though. Before you came here and disrespected the board, I thought you were horrible at your job even in 2006.

    Let me get this straight

    It should go without saying that Key has a little insight into baseball and handling pitchers that NONE of us on this board has.

    In fact I would be willing to bet that he can hit the ball better and catch the ball better than everyone on this board.

    Yet, his OPINION is somehow not relevant because he is not one of the top 61 at his particular chosen occupation. (notice the extra 1...Think about the Reds) But someone else who has never walked on a baseball field has an opinion that is more relevant????

    I'm a financial planner so I guess whenever I make a comment (about baseball) someone can say that I'm a horrible financial planner so my opinon doesn't count.

    Frankly I am excited to have him on the board and hope that I can learn something from him.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Who said anything about his opinion not being relevant? In my opinion, he has some of the most relevant opinions on the message board. What I was saying is that I have some negative opinions about particular people in the organization, and before I knew of anyone from the organization visiting the board, those opinions were already formed, and I don't plan on holding back those opinions just because someone from the organization might read them. And as always, I'm not going to go out and say anything negative about someone unless I am willing to state my basis for it.

    After rereading what you said I guess I could have mis-read what you meant. I apoligize for that. I think I was tainted a little by some of your comments in the Hamilton thread that I felt went way too far and then reading this comment I felt that you were discounting him.

    Thanks for the edit, GIK, even though I have nothing to hide. Congrats to Ryan for whatever he discovered on Google, though. I wonder if it was anything as interesting as what I found out about him.

    Re: My Re-Introduction...

    Can we please stop this? I see no reason to have a grudge match here on the board, and I see no reason for anyones personal matters to be brought up under any circumstances either. If you don't like each other, there's an ignore button.

    I think this thread has run its course. If any of you would like to address KeyMastur or vice versa, do it via e-mail or PM. This isn't a forum for your personal issues.
