You just defined Twitter my man.

Been to confession lately?, b/c it looks like the end of the world over here.


If you're not looking at Twitter a few times a day then you'd have that impression. But 140 characters means you actually have to think before you post or you don't say anything and no one ever sees it.

And just as you posted that it started raining again at a steady clip.

And Symbolic, step away from the keyboard for 60 seconds before you post. That post by DHotP is an accurate reflection of your night's work.

2 innings in.

Don't blame people for calling it what it is.

Alright then. This place is full of knee jerk reaction posts. Im rarely one of those. I back up my posts with facts and legitimate arguments. But go ahead and pick out 2 innings worth of posts from a whole season if you must. Again look at the season posts and get back to me.

Are you guys insinuating Im a knee jerk poster on here? :lmfao:

Yes. It is full of knee jerk reaction posts. That's the point and the problem IMO. Specifically the game threads.

And no. I'm not going through a year's worth of posts. People who survive plane crashes don't go up to crash again. I'd rather walk through Kabul wearing an American Flag t-shirt and a burning Koran.

I just find it funny I get singled out by 3 people for 2 innings of posts, when Im always one of the more positive people on here about our team. I could care less what people on the internet think of me, but this is a Tribe fan forum. Ripping each other is pretty counter productive IMO. Tons of people make REALLY STUPID posts on here, but I dont go out of my way to point it out. The only person Ive openly disagreed with on more than one occasion is Scrambler. But we seem to be pretty similar in our approach so it doesnt bother me.

Personally I wont lie, ive been here for 2 years, and this is the first time anybody has ever called me out for that specific reason. My point remains, maybe I did jump the gun today, but there are many many more posters far more guilty of this than me. Just seems odd IMO. Whatever, I enjoy reading Peekers and UK's posts, and we have had some good convos in the past. Just seemed bizarre to point that out. I also did make some positive posts to.

Also I dont see whats wrong about hating Peralta. They guy was lazy, and a pouting baby when he played for us. But as soon as he goes to Detroit, he decides to actually hit the ball the other way, while subjecting us to years of incompetent play. I dont like him, and it sucks seeing him fulfilling his promise with another team after we practically gave him the job for 5 seasons. Just my two cents, take it for whats it worth.

Dude- it ain't fatal. Just something to keep in mind. That was a barrage of negativity and pessimism.

It just was. No big deal. But it's part of what makes the gamethreads tough to enjoy and it gets worse each year.

I have no idea why game threads bring it out more than other threads. But it happens and it's difficult to watch.

Is there any serious chance this game will get postponed/called? I'm figuring if we're tied right now and Masty is nice instead of nasty we might get the advantage by calling this one. Not that there is a free day to make this one up for the rest of the season - barely any time to breath, it seems. So maybe we should just hope the rain stops and play on...

Eh no biggie. I guess it just rubbed me the wrong way at first. I did however admit in the beginning of the thread I probably jumped the gun. But whatever, Im good. No hard feeling. Ill keep it in check. But its getting harder as the season goes on. Last week tested my nerves Ill tell you what. We could have easily gone 7-0 on that trip. So maybe that frustration is still lingering.

Rain has slowed down here but there's more right behind it. Like we're stuck in a loop of dark green radar readings that aren't going away. And this field is soaked though the crew is heading for the tarp right now.

As a Tribe Board Reader and not poster (this place is terrrrrrrrrible outside of a few people who still carry) I can explain what just happened pretty easily.

Peeks burned out awhile ago and mentioned it in the locked disaster thread earlier today. The quality of these threads is somewhere between goat jizz and elephant dung. You used to at least have scattered game discussion w/ THREE WORD POST/RACIAL ARGUMENT.

Since this fall to suck (it isn't really a fall, more so a Peeker burnout) happened today and I<3PRONK posted a quick break down of your mini-melt tonight it was easy pickings that got jumped.

You're one of the better posters here (shudder) so don't jump off a ledge about that stupid shit.

Is this a compliment? lol. I cant tell. I said my piece and Im cool now. TBH this is my favorite sports forum Ive ever posted on, and I like the majority of you guys. So I guess I took that harder than I should have and I can admit that. No sleep for 35 hours may have played a part. ;-) ;) :wink:

Yeah. That pretty much covers it.

SO I pretty much have to beg for some stimulating in-game discussion or kill myself. Because I have an obligation to look at this shit.

And tarp was removed to dump the ocean's worth of water off it.

Back on now and more rain headed this way.

Kill me.

Next dry period I'm making a break for the vehicle.

I highly doubt they're playing this one soon. Pouring again.

And there's no way Masterson or Fister are back if they do start again. It'll be 2+ hour delay at the least.

Crap, not sounding good. Bummer as I was really pumped for this game.

Just standing next to Katie Witham in the cafeteria. I take back every derogatory comment I made about her earlier in the year.

All of it.

Every word.

The two-faced 'Seinfeld' episode comes to mind. I'm extremely confused.

Durbin will come in to pitch.

Try and contain your excitement.

Against the middle of the Tigers order as well.

Durbin Vs Cabrera/Martinez is, to say the least, an unfavourable matchup.

They might have to ferry Durbin from the bullpen to the mound. Feudal lords would be envious of the moat in front of the Indians bullpen and in LCF.

Durbin against you, me and Am I Here Again? might be an unfavorable matchup for Durbin.

How many cigs do you imagine Leyland went through during the break?

Acta has to be hoping to get three innings from Durbin. Just 10 days ago Durbin worked 2.2 IP. looking for that again.

Well, if the heavy rains weren't a sign of the apocalypse, then I guess Chad Durbin throwing quality strikes might just be!

Uh oh. Leyland realized the Indians are powerless against junkballer lefties. And Masterson is out of the game. Tigers might be happy about that rain delay.

Below has only pitched 13 innings since coming up from AAA but he's doing well. Opposing batters are hitting .220 against him. Meanwhile, we've got Durbin.

Seeing Peralta with a .315 average just angers me.

Beer sales during delay clearly good. Can hear one guy from down the 3rd base line screaming, "You're a bitch Peralta!"

The alcohol has not impaired his truth-telling ability.

Dare I say Durbin looks good? Throwwing tripe, but he's spotting it well.

Just don't let Miggy get a second look at him. He'll poke one of those crapballs on the outer portion oppo for a homer.

Most impressive thing about Boesch's catch? He literally sang "Singing In The Rain" as he jumped through the puddle. Huge Gene Kelly fan.
