Interesting quotes from a beleaguered Buck Showalter...

Recommended Posts

That's actually a decent separation and doesn't appear to be inflated by a lot of IBB's.

But then again, if the entire world of baseball players had a true talent, verified by God, of hitting with RISP with an OPS of .750, you would observe some players at .800, or .850 and some at .700 or .650. And in small samples of ABs off by even more.

Sure. I just commented that he's got one of the good separations with a large sample size and not inflated by IBB's. I certainly don't think it's statistically signficant, even assuming some probable level of skill. I do think it's notable.

How long do we plan to allow the least wanted poster in the world to continue this stuff? He is the anti "most interesting man in the world".

At least Trea doesn't going on and on about how Machado can't hit a slider.

Oh, he's developed a more nuanced opinion of that now. I forgot to PM you.

If you don't think I'm upset, you obviously have no clue who I am or care to find out.

Well, that's for sure. I do not care to find out who you are.

Why would I intentionally post things knowing I'd get slammed for them and take personal attack after attack?

THAT is the point. You do it all the time, so you know the answer to this question. You obviously have some sick need to piss everybody off, which you have proceeded to do in this thread, and in almost every Orioles Talk section thread that you start or enter.

You are intentionally obstinate, you get some type of warped satisfaction out of having countless posters trying their damnedest to get through to you, and therefore you are not a nice guy.

My goal is to express and inform.

Weams asked you if someone had talked to you directly regarding the "information" that you were posting, or if it were just something that you personally hoped to be true. You used Nestor Aparicio and WNST as your "source."

Your "goal" of expressing and informing is about as genuine as that of The Star or The National Inquirer in their quest to express and inform.

This is entirely false and that's all I will say because you've already made up your mind based on who you think I am and that's unfortunate.

The majority of people on this board have made up their minds on who you are. You are given actual evidence (instead of opinions) and you ignore them.

You're on the internet Trea. It's nice that some people on here have personal friendships. I've been fortunate to meet a couple posters myself. I'm sure you're a nice guy in person. I'm also sure you're probably no where near the annoyance in real life as you are on here.

For the most part your reputation on here is determined by your body of work. In your case that's basically a pile of trash. if you're a punching bag it's because you earned it. Either wear it or change. Don't expect people to accommodate you. In any event, stop whining about it.

If you want to rehabilitate your image you can start by using facts and evidence. I have rarely seen a truly fact-based argument here overwhelmed by personality conflicts.

For instance....

Fact: The Orioles are 2-0 in games Schoop has started at second base.

Treaism: The Orioles would have been 162-0 had they started Schoop at second base every game.

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.  
    • You’re right about some things, wrong about others. watch and see if things get better. I think they will.
    • I think at the moment, we get the 8th pick
