    So in other words I have to agree with you or I'm just simply wrong?

    No, but it would be nice if you not take a simple proposition and reword it to fit your needs and then call it wrong. Further, I acknowledge it is uncertain as to whether the WBC is the source of Ramirez's issues. That's why I called it a "possible" explanation, and a "hypothesis", each of which denote uncertainty. It could be that Ramirez just sucks, independent of going to the WBC. It could be an injury. It could be bad luck. It could be the WBC. It could be a combination of things. It could be none of those things. But I am unsure how I require agreement from you with regard to my general wondering. You don't agree that it is a factor. I point to data that shows it could be. Life goes on.

    If I had said Ramirez is "ruined", then, sure, have at it. I didn't. No one did. Putting words into my mouth and then disagreeing with them is less than satisfactory from my position.

    I think it could be a factor but I just think other factors are much more likely. People just want to blame WBC because it seems easier.

    Then they dont want to explain other pitchers who come from the WBC and pitch perfectly fine.

    Hey

    Soto walked! His first walk of the year in 90 some odd plate appearances...He has got to develop at least some plate discipline. The good thing is, he's not striking out much.

    Hopper...no...

    LOL, sorry don't know if you meant to be funny with the way you started that post but it made me laugh. Here I am reading this argument of sorts between Mem and GIDP and then all of a sudden.....Hey Soto Walked! Just struck me as a went to a fight and a baseball game broke out sort of thing.
