    Well, from prior posts it was clear that I was talking about both (hence discussion of condescension).

    I'm saying there are more tactful ways of making an argument while still being confident/strong minded. I'm just saying, you get into these arguments more than anyone, I'm suggesting you may want to reconsider your tact if you want to prevent having to defend yourself on the manner every few months.

    We come here to read other's opinions and arguments, therefore we should all be a little bit more respectful and mindful when someone is willing to engage in thoughtful discourse.

    With that, I'm done here. I initially meant to come in here to mediate and help improve the discourse, and ended up getting into an argument about an argument.

    This is awfully meta for this thread isn't it?

    I think people need to just stop taking things personally. There's a lot me and Doug haven't agreed on over the years, and we've gone back and forth a few times on a couple of different things. But you know what? I have a ton of respect for him. He does a hell of a job with what he does, and while he makes a strong case for his statements, I don't find him disrespectful. So maybe he's convinced Didi will be better than Cozart. Who cares? His opinion. If he tells you you're wrong, agree to disagree and move on. Quite frankly he brings a lot of insight to the board and knows a LOT about prospects that most of us don't, so I don't know what good poo-pooing him does.

    Fact is, the Reds are in a damn good spot. Can't we just enjoy it instead of breaking out the pitchforks and going after people, especially those that bring a lot of good qualities to the board?

    Although I've already said I don't agree with the way he states things at times, I totally agree with all the positives you have just listed about the man.

    Yea, well maybe that's the problem, is that the respect doesn't seem to go both ways. I'm right because I'm right, I'm the expert, you can't possibly challenge my opinions because I research this stuff, isn't real respectful.

    No, not really. This thread doesn't mention anything about prospects or bold predictions, although one was made, rather boldly, about Gregorious and Cozart.

    If I could go back in time, why on Earth would I begin to think about using it for that?

    I came to this thread to find some insightful news or thoughts on the Choo trade and have found a glorified pissing match.

    Moderators, please close this thread.
