Re: Who is Ryan Schultz?

It's all so bizarre. The story on its own of Ryan manipulating these people isn't that strange. It sounds like any old catfishing story -- except that the catfisher was a teenage girl, which is also very odd, as Sofa was saying. The thing that drives this over the top is the baseball writing dynamic...

I mean, seriously, why is that being ignored? I'm definitely out of touch here. It all seems very strange to me. And it really sucks that these women were emotionally abused and deceived. I don't want to victim blame. And they are certainly victims. "Ryan Schultz" is deranged person that ...

what the what is going on in the head of a person who shares nudes with a twitter persona? I try to not come across as victim blaming, but that was definitely an 'am I out of touch, no the children are wrong' moment in my head. "I wouldn't have sent him those nude photos if I had known he wasn...

I could live with a Chatwood and Cobb offseason then try and find a Monty type guy to trade for that wouldn’t cost a major piece and would have ...

Re: Bob Nightengale: Chris Bosio Fired

I'm honestly not sure how much affect hitting and pitching coaches have. I think having good organizational approaches is important. And it's obviously better to have a pitching coach who is more knowledgeable. But all of that work is done behind the scenes, so it's hard for us to know exactly how ...

Re: Bob Nightengale: Chris Bosio Fired

Definitely a little strange. I don't like it. But I also don't know if I should care. I thought Bosio was a great pitching coach. But, then again, all of our pitchers started throwing 4 mph slower this year and we walked like 7 per 9 innings. So what the hell does he know? I'm honestly not sure how ...
