Just wanted to Introduce myself

Unread postby Parker_ASN » Thu May 03, 2012 7:46 pm

I'm not sure if this is the place to do it, but I will and hope for a pardon from the higher-ups if it is not.

My name is Parker and I have been reading this forum for sometime now. I guess you would consider me a long time reader, first time poster. I enjoy the playful discussion that occurs here, but I also enjoy that this board can have a serious baseball discussion from time to time as well. I can not wait to be a part of it.

I am a writer myself, and blog for Akron Sports Now. I mainly cover the Akron Aeros. I will try to keep my writing out of our discussions, but will have a link in my sig if anyone is interested in keeping up with them. I hope that this is OK, and I don't think I am the only one who does this.

Thank you in advance for the welcomes. I am excited to get to know all of you. :cheers:

Greetings! I hope you become a regular contributor to the forum. What made you decide to join the discussions now? How long have you been visiting the site? Are you one of these psychopaths who think matt laporta will be any different if he comes up to the club again?

Started paying attention to the forum last football season, Finals are finishing up so I have more time now, I guess that is why I am starting now. And I would be for trading Laporta, not adding him to the club.

I don't want to start a game thread but want to let you all know the game is on MLB. The problem is ass hat Hawk doing play-by-play.

Good start. You're at least smarter than that asshat who started the LaPorta thread, and it took us less than 10 posts to figure it out.

Welcome.

Few things.

1. Don't worry about linking your stuff. Regular contributors will not be thought of as spamers.

2. Peeker is all high and mighty now that he has figured out how to use his moderator tools after 4 years of moderating. Just to give you some background, his Indian name is Doesntknowaneaglefromanowlwhilethewheelsonhisbusgoroundandround. You can see why we shortened to Peeker I am sure.

3. I hate stats.

::doh::

Yeah...welcome and all that required crap....blah...blah...


These guys here don't know eagles from assholes despite being the latter. Most don't know baseballs from frisbees other than realizing they can throw neither.

What are your thoughts on extrapolations indicating Shelley Duncan, based on a few ABs against September call-ups, is likely a 40HR, 145 OPS+ guy. I put that out there because I'm a huge Duncan fan and believe he's simply been overlooked for the first 12 years of his career and that he's finally coming into his own.

Good luck. Pup's Indian name is "Dick".

Welcome to our corner of the ether.

I don't want to say that I'm the best and most knowledgable poster around here. That would be presumptuous and a little assholish. I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

Peeker is bald and thinks he's the lone person on the face of the Earth that can see through Holmgren's clever ruse.

Pup...it isn't that he hates stats. I think he's just afraid of numbers. Like Jim Carrey. Only with Pup it's not just 23...it's all the numbers.

"Please allow myself to introduce.......myself..."

That's all I can think of when I visit this thread.

That and how GD goofy Motherscratcher actually is.

Sometimes when you have the opportunity to meet posters you interact with on a regular basis you find common ground and that they're really decent people.

I've been around mscratcher twice and still just think he's a goof.

Nothing else at all comes screaming through. Other than the disappointment of course.

Welcome, Parker. Pay no attention to the guys' blustery attitudes. Down deep they're all pretty decent guys. Well most of them. And VERY down deep. But you'll get used to them. Just takes time...and lots of adult beverages. Or college bars nearby. ;-) ;) :wink:

Looking forward to reading your posts. Skimmed through your most recent blog post and enjoyed it.

Another thing...AmIHereAgain is kind of the voice of reason around here and pretty much the only thing keeping the place from devolving into something that resembles whatever might lurk deep in the recesses of CDT's belly button.

Yeah, but if I come around more often I know you guys will drag me down into the murkiness that you guys inhabit.

If that happens I'll bring a case. Image GLBC OK with you all?

Donny's Indian name is "Dick".

A lot of guys here share that Indian name. It'll make sense if you stick around.

1) Tread lightly in the Cavs/NBA forum. Eye is quite carnivorous.

2) As an aside, I keep thinking that I am dreaming, since the Tribe resides in first place. Then I look at the AL East and KNOW that it is all a dream.
