Now, whether someone thinks he should be a Hall of Famer certainly can be a discussion, but he's still already in.
It wasn't a debate or discussion anyone was actually having; it was an odd non-sequitur reply to people pointing out that the job Epstein and co. are currently doing is looking pretty shaky at best.
Let's not ignore the weirder part that multiple people would apparently be fine with their favorite baseball team being terrible for years because their favorite baseball executive is HoF-worthy.
It wasnt non-sequitur at all, it was in reply to your asinine "laurels" comment.
And again you are embelishing, who in the hell said we would be fine with the Cubs being terrible. All that was said is Theo's career is solidified as pretty successful no matter what happens going forward.
Since you have trouble with reading comprehension Ill use an example. Jon Lester has had a hell of a career, even if his ERA is 6+ the next five years.
That statement, just like the Theo statement does not imply that any of us want Lester to get rocked the next 5 years.
You are being dramatic.. which I guess is your nsbb persona of the last 2 years.
