    It is a discussion board. It was a joke on the predictability of Gomes' presence in the lineup being mentioned. Nothing more, nothing less.

    BTW, just got back from The Other Guys. Had potential, a few good scenes but kind of disappointed.

    I'm always happy when I see that Paul Janish is playing SS.

    Well, I wasn't being critical of it, I was expressing surprise over him being in there facing a righty in the midst of his struggles.

    But I guess that's not okay to do.

    For what it's worth, a Sun Decker kindly PM'd me that Gomes is 4 for 4 lifetime against Billingsley, which is cool information, and addresses my surprise.

    But I guess snarky putdowns of attempts to discuss are more the norm.

    Carry on.

    You're really getting carried away on this. It was commentary on the fact Gomes was inevitably going to have criticism about his presence in the lineup.

    Show me anywhere.... anywhere if you please... where I had a problem with you posting anything. Can you do that for me? Because I thought it was pretty apparent it was a joke and should have been taken as such.

    It would be one thing if I were being critical.

    I wasn't.

    I expressed surprise.

    No worries, a reminder why I tend to avoid game threads and opt for chat.

    I am not, Homer. Carry on.

    Phillips bounces to 2nd, Stubbs smacks a single to CF.

    Dude, it was a joke. You do have a sense of humor, yes?

    Lighten up. No harm meant by it. Clearly there's a feeling that Gomes shouldn't be in the lineup much, if any. And I was playing around on that sentiment wondering how long it would take to be mentioned. That was all there is to it.
