If you havnt noticed people are also making fun of the whitest person in the world...Jesus.

Either its all okay to make fun of or none of it. Get over it, stop crying, nobody is serious, no racial slurs were thrown, grow up.


Jesus lived in the middle east. The only folks who believe he is that white were the white people painting all of those pictures.

I wasn't making fun of Jesus. Just his ability to play ball. Guy still had some other skills he could fall back.

Lotta dudes go into broadcasting. Jesus had a ministry. It was a good fit because dude was verbose and likely woulda been explaining one pitch while an entire inning passed.

Then I'll fit right in with all the people who complain about how we're always rebuilding and rage against the "next year" mentality of the Indians and then cry when we give up prospects for a proven player who can win now. And I'll fit in with the same group of people who seem to get no joy out of baseball whatsoever because they are too busy being miserable about it all the time, yet they let the sport consume most of their free time.

How about all of the ones who promised (seemingly to no one) that they weren't going to spend a penny on the team until they were contenders, and still don't support the 2011 team.

Another fun group for sure.

I guess I just don't get it. It used to be that I came here to keep informed because a good amount of you know a lot about the sport in ways that I can't even imagine knowing it. But now, no matter what is going on in the game, it seems that a vocal minority (I hope it is the minority anyway) makes it so you have to sift through pages and pages of the same old arguments over and over again to find any sort of useful information.

Not sure what one thing has to do with the other. It just seemed like you went off the deep end there. No big deal, just a little out of character is all.

We struck out with acquiring a bat if is all we came away with.

Ubaldo takes a lot of heat off, but I thought this guy was merely a gash stopper who could make everyone around him get better pitches to hit. I think he needs to be moved to the 2 hole, though. I thought for sure we would try to get Ludwick, Upton, or a RH stick worthy of bumping Kearns. I know...waivers game to play now, but looks like we're gonna ride it out and hope Choo comes back and ready to be Choo.

Humor is all subjective, just because you don't find it funny doesn't mean it isn't. I didn't bring up your main point because I honestly didn't think that you were so ridiculous that you think you are truly right in judging something to be funny and having it not be. It may not be funny to you but its funny to somebody and that is the point.

And honestly I don't care if you don't find it funny because I did and to me that is all that matters. I don't care if some guy on a message board doesn't find something funny. I actually think that fact that a joke made you so angry is :lmfao:

If you started telling black, gay, pick your minority jokes that were only funny to you, would that be also be acceptable to post?

Seriously dude. Try and think past today. And not literally today if you can dig.

They added an ace for at least two years after this.

They cleared OC for Kipnis to play everyday.

They are giving Kipnis and Chisenhall a crash course in major league-ology.

If they get it this year great. But they didn't make this move for this year alone. They made it for next season more than this year. The fact they didn't pay a bit more for Ludwick should get that through for you.

You can find a bat like his in August should you be in the race. They're building this team for next season and 2013 by keeping their best major league hitting prospects here and dealing the guys who most often miss. They have the makings of an excellent staff and they hope the kids are ready to jump right in the deep end by next year when they also get Choo back and healthy.

Recognize what's going on rather than posting out of immediate emotion. Think it through.

yes and no. It depends on the intent. If the person is using humor as a disguise for being a bigot or a racist then no. As long as their is no ill intent and it is honestly just in fun with no ill will then yes it is.


However racial slurs are a whole different ballgame and should never be used.

I'd been gone for several days....here's the Fukodome thread!!

Any particular reason this guy isn't hitting leadoff for this crew?? for all the moaning and whining about this trade and not getting the great Ryan Ludwick or BJ Upton, which is fine, the man is a consistent .370 plus OBP guy which this team doesn't have a plethora of sitting around. A man with a consistent .370 plus OBP for the last 3 years running is a freaking upgrade offensively whether anyone wants to acknowledge it or not. It's pretty obvious where the guy should be hitting.

His OBP is better in three other positions in the lineup over leadoff. Brantley puts together some good ABs as well and isn't over matched. Fukodome will be gone for years while Brantley hits in that spot AND Fukodome is coming to a new city and team.

They seem to be playing for the future as much as now.

If Brantley was the only cipher I'd be inclined to agree more but I'm fine with Fukodome where they use him now.

YMMV
