awh: So he writes bad articles, posts click bait here, does not add one piece of anything to the discussion, AND screws up html codes making the site look like we are thinking everything we say is super important? Stick the fork in BL man. This inmate is in charge of the asylum.

I agree that Amaro did a great job with the Hernandez stuff. It baffled me that MG was all over that being awful.

Interesting stuff there lorecore. Looks like some people had some uneasiness towards Amaro. It is sad to see what Beerleaguer once was. I did not come on board until midway through 2007 as that was when I found the site. Anymore we have no posts and then some lunatic losing his mind with posts early Thursday morning and breaking this place with bold tags that he doesn't close. It's funny too since he is so adamant in condescending to everyone about how to bookmark pages and he doesn't even understand simple html.

Lorecore: you are feeling extra salty today...getting out your TGP aggression?

Sorry everyone...I didn't realize the previous poster did not properly close their bold tag.

lorecore: To me the Blanton decision is sort of the flip side of how LaRusaa handled his pitching staff in the 2011 NLDS. LaRussa's worked and Manuel's didn't. The real issue in that NLCS though was Cody Ross deciding he wanted to actually play well.

Bubba: I agree with you completely. I think Amaro has made some good moves this winter and is slowly turning the farm system around. His continued pissing on the legacy of Ryan Howard though is baffling. Howard clearly is not what he was but he is only here because of an Amaro deal. For Amaro to bash him constantly is ridiculous. Also Bubba- I invite you to move over to The Good Phight. Beerleaguer was great and we still can follow JW and his exploits on Twitter. But the posting here is bad anymore and it is dominated by the troll posting his clickbait articles and ruining the flow of what little discussion is still here. Come over to TGP where the conversations flow free and have intelligent posters instead of "rocking chair" nonsense.

The Padres have signed James Shields which probably effectively eliminates them from the Cole Hamels sweepstakes. Shields will probably be a very good signing there for them. They will be fun to watch if you stay up late on the East Coast.

awh: Who are you to argue with fake numbers to crappy articles?

awh and clout: Don't waste your breath or humor the troll. Let's just all spend our time at TGP where they will monitor the nonsense awah\y. To answer your point clout: No you don't build around Viciedo but I think that does not preclude Amaro from going after him. He seems like the type of guy Amaro would salivate over.

Ah stupid copy and paste mess up. Here was my quote I was using BAP: "Alas, the next Cuban happened to be the worst of the whole lot." Speculation, yada, yada, yada.

"I take my best idea for each individual week, take one day to write it and two days to edit it." I can agree with your ideas to a point BAP but this last sentence is not necessarily true and is speculation on your part at this point.

That was as boneheaded a coaching move as anyone could ever make. The Seahawks were on the verge of being a force and potential dynasty. I think losing their defensive coordinator and that play call will haunt them for years to come.

And to the rest of the blog. I promise I am done talking with Tal. He can live in his delusional little bubble if he wants. I am more than willing to talk Fightins from here on out.
1 reply
Tal: You are straight up a delusional liar. I tried to engage you on one of your articles and it was clear that you didn't want to discuss anything. You were just insistent that your point of view was right without any facts or anything to back it up. That's fine, but just admit it. Also, if you are retired and doing extensive research writing articles then you have time to discuss those articles with people. You don't discuss them anywhere. Not here, not on your page where they post. NOWHERE! That means no one cares enough to read them. That means you are a nothing writer. All you are is a guy who writes pieces that no one goes to your page to read so you post them other places to try and drum up traffic. It doesn't work because no one goes AND it does not facilitate any discussion. I know you will say you have people clicking the links but stop lying to yourself. You don't. I told you before- if you posted articles here and legitimately wanted to discuss them with people- there would be people more than willing to do that. Some would agree with you, and some would not. That is the nature of this place. You don't want to do that though. You want to post a piece and then have everyone agree with you until the next week's piece. Lastly- some free advice: If this statement is true.... "I take my best idea for each individual week, take one day to write it and two days to edit it." then after reading some of your stuff- you might want to take your second or third ideas.

TTI, I'm amazed at the level of self-importance. WTF. awh: of me or him?
1 reply
awh: He won't go away because he has deluded himself into thinking he has people who read his articles. He doesn't even want to discuss his articles. And he thinks he can reach people better here. NOT the page where he actually posts his articles. The guy is a dope and it is unfathomable that he has conned whatever the hell isportsweb is into letting him write a weekly column. Maybe he has pictures of the site runners in similar positions to the picture Mini Mart had of Amaro.

aksmith: Yeah. I made the mistake of clicking on his link once and read drivel and then read another link just to see if maybe the first link was a bad day for him. No- he is that dumb. So get this: He thinks the Phillies FO wanted MAG but they knew other teams did as well. So the Phillies made a huge offer so other teams would back out. Then the Phillies now having sole negotiating power gave him a smaller deal. Pretty dumb huh? awh: I understand the concept of the whole minor league deal issue but to me I think it is clear that the FO values guys much differently than we do as fans. I hope they value Moncada high but again- they have to show me at this point before I get excited.

So you are saying then that you believe the nonsense posted by Delusional Tal that the Phillies purposely gave out a large offer to drive away other teams so they could get him at a lower value in the end? I think with MAG they legitimately were willing to offer him the money. Then after the deal was agreed to in principle they found an arm issue and MAG was stuck having to renegotiate the deal because he still was not going to get a big deal. The problem with Utley hanging around is not on Utley to me. I think the FO really wants him around and will need to be blown away to move him. They won't be, and he will play out the string here. I think you are wrong on Utley about the type of person he will be when he retires. He seems to genuinely like being in Philly. I can see him being an ambassador for the team in the future.
1 reply
I tend to believe the Phillies will end up not offering much for Moncada. I hope they do as I think the guy has the goods to be a huge piece in any future rebuilding but their modus operandi tells me they will lowball an offer solely knowing they will get outbid but they can say they tried. When it comes to foreign players they need to prove to me now they are legitimately going to get involved with one before I start to get my hopes up again.

We agree again ak. I am a little higher on Billingsley than you are. To me I think Billingsley is a little more consistent over the course of his career than the other two but I think the upside of Medlen is much higher versus Billingsley. I think Beachy is a guy who is not quite as good as his numbers portend. It's a negligible difference though. Maybe you and I ak could take over this blog- make like a little Great Sports Debate type stuff back and forth.

aksmith: First off, someone did impersonate me at one point and said nothing but homophobic comments which was neither clever nor funny. Secondly- if someone impersonated me on BL I would think to myself, "Hmm. Someone has taken time to impersonate my fake name on a blog. Says a lot for them." Then I'd go about my day. Thirdly- I agree with you on Vicideo. No real need for him.
1 reply
Man aksmith I was even trying to give you a compliment if it was actually you. I assumed it wasn't but I was holding out hope. You should've just accepted the compliment.

dragon: Someone has to make sure the pipes don't freeze up. Seriously though- I'm done trying to engage Tal. He wants to just post articles here for his zero readers and then drift away until it is time to post another terrible article. I asked him for proof people click the links- he has none. So clearly we are dealing with a delusional weirdo who is so insecure that he has to make up readers of his articles on a dead site because his other efforts- like begging Crashburn Alley to be a writer- didn't work. More power to him.
