No, it's not serious enough to force anyone out of the thread.

This happens literally every year.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

its just so surprising that the team that has had the best player at every position for the past couple years has failed to reach the world series

but at least this year they will go wire to wire in the worst division, as long as you dont count the times they werent in first place

no, last year i was bitching about people treating it like a nfl gameday thread and spamming it with one line "looooool!" "YES" and "lol jeter" type posts.

which i would gladly take back in exchange for the horrible mess that is this year's thread.

if you want to ban people for bad posting then you can prob take out a solid third of the thread but otherwise i don't really know what you could do about it.

Why cant you carry on your advanced projections conversations alongside the casual fan conversations? That's what works in every other thread.

that's how the thread has existed for the last three years i've been posting in it.

sorta irrelevant though because basically no one has tried to carry on any advanced projection type conversations in this year's thread anyway.

i don't think it's necessary. one line posts aren't an issue this year (and fwiw last season they died down after a couple weeks like everyone told me they would).

prob a good chance the aidsy trolling and super homerism will fade too as people get bored with it and baseball isn't so new anymore.

The AIDS of this year's MLB thread is completely different, and it's almost completely your, Greear and rmthawk's fault. It's not just gameday stuff, you guys just completely suck.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

rmthawk is obviously way worse than the other 2. i dont see a problem with greear, he is harmless. he clearly doesnt take himself too seriously, why should anyone else? greear becomes a "problem" i guess when he becomes confrontational with another poster and makes it his mission to endlessly troll him (likes he's doing now with phildo/lincecumdumpster*)

Going to see Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth tonight (last night of the mini-run). Everything I've heard has been awesome. Can't wait.

thread was godawful long before greear and his band of amateur comedians/scouts (can't tell who is which for certain) jumped up my ass. tbh i think it actually improved the thread.

So basically dittoheads or whatever the Jim Rome wannabes are called. Rome is good, people trying to be him are lame.

Not like it's award-winning wit or anything but Lincecumdumpster was mine, though afaik nutshot is responsible for the much funnier "anus mouth" nickname for Papelbon.

From someone who doesn't post in the mlb thread but likes reading them when the content isn't terrible, I think this is a good idea.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

of course it's bad enough to remove g10 and his hypeman from the thread, not that it matters. that's not the question anyway since people are more interested in playing "mad or not mad" between at the aquarium greear ikes rmthawk and random braves fans who are trying to rustle everyone's jimmies (in the parlance of our times)

you have the same situation in the MLB thread as you did 3 years ago where a bunch of people were *******s about sabermetrics. the difference is then you had people intentionally being dicks to prove a (probably pedantic) point and now you have a bunch of people being dicks to see if they can make someone mad over the internet

the "analysis" that is being presented as an honest argument is nothing more than googling some numbers that don't mean anything (ikes has repeatedly shown he doesn't know when to do a weighted average, for example) in the hopes of making phildo (mostly) mad about lincecum being bad in a few innings

phildo shouldn't get so butthurt about it but at the same time there's no reason that the village idiots should be participating in a "u mad" contest since it's only "fair" because it does, in fact, get phildo to try and actually argue his side, which is a worthless endeavor for any number of obvious reasons
