    They seem to have a good enough time glad handing each other on Twitter so maybe all’s well that ends well.
    I missed this apparently. What the world? Details please.

    The Napalm Girl photo was put up in one of the Covid threads I’m sure for some shock value but Doug launched into a diatribe about he will no longer be affiliated or come to a site that allows child pornography. Even though I’m 99.9 percent sure you could find that picture on Twitter if you wanted and that’s where he tends to camp out these days.

    For the record, I have seen the photo multiple times. Itís an important part of the story telling and awareness of a terrible event and the conditions. There isnít anything remotely sexual or pornographic about it.

    Now, the mods correctly communicated redszone was not the place for said material, but thatís another discussion. Shaming people and implying they were essentially pedophiles over that photo was grossly inaccurate and inappropriate to suggest.

    Maybe there was more behind the scenes or stuff Iím forgetting but he did get frustrated that people were expecting the Reds to lose a lot.
    Raisor was in the "there won't be enough innings for the young guys" camp the year after guys like Amir and Cody Reed had clearly shown they weren't starters. Others were upset that the Reds hadn't added any veteran starters after failing to do so had clearly been detrimental to the young guys' development. The season predictably started terribly and then Raisor asked for the self-ban.

    Does he even realize that that pic won a Pulitzer Prize and is one the most iconic photos of the 70's let alone the Vietnam war?

    Is Raisor some big deal in twitter or something? I mean I know he used o post here but...what's his handle on Twitter?

    Googled Raisor Redszone and this thread popped up LOL....

    Interesting.

    Tough to see a context where that photo is needed, but to call it child pornography is completely missing the base. That’s asinine.

    McLain tonight is the microcosm of minor league baseball:

    The good: A single and a walk in four trips to the plate. Two stolen bases. Two double plays started.

    The bad: His fourth error in 20 SS games and somewhere around 45-50 chances. Oof.

    I think he's a CF waiting to happen. Barrero will be the SS. Senzel will probably be bitten by a Tsetse Fly and contract an illness that will cause him to retire. CF is where the need is and McLain was always an iffy bet as a big league SS. I'd get on with that conversion ASAP.
