Uhhhhh ok




We had claimed someone named Ildemaro Vargas off waivers earlier today and he's out of options.

Fingers crossed somehow this will lead to Brennen Davis, 5th OFer(!!), this month. You know you want to, Theo!

Seriously, shut the horsefeathers up about the Cubs bringing up Brennen Davis. It's not happening and it's a stupid idea.

Wow...how many people have ever been in the lineup for game 1 of a DH and then DFA'd before game 2?!

Doesn't the other account usually handle this part now?

I don't think there's anything stupid about it btw, but you've been so exasperating for so long that at this point I'm mostly annoyed you get to curse! Do agree it's at least most likely not happening though

I ignore your posts the vast majority of the time because I think you're an idiot, because you're bad at scouting, because you're bad at logic and because you repeat stupid ideas like this over and over again...

Yes, my cursing is definitely a problem. Are you clutching your pearls?

Remember when you used to brag about ignoring all of them all the time constantly? Oh the glory days of probably any moment before this in 2020!

I guess you noticed the Judas one was running out of steam lately and had to change it up? Let's not!

I really wish Tim had just banned you when they were discussing it. Just move on to your next stupid idea.

Bigger mystery than my not being banned: How are you sooooo safe?* Like it's reposting tweets and insulting other posters, that's the entire act! Yeah I'm the worst message board poster or whatever that's fair, but you're constantly calling other people here dumb! It's just weird because you aren't *that* smart! I'll never get it but also I don't really want to?

Honestly when you do it with the Judas account at least that one hasn't constantly promised to always ignore me and never interact yada yada. I get why Brennen Davis on the ML roster seems like a wild idea on the surface, development control control development beep boop, but there's some reasons it could under conditions very similar to the ones we're in or approaching and after the Campusano callup by the Padres a couple nights ago isn't even so unprecedented

*Note/Edit: Not that I actually want you banned!

Dude, I rarely ever interact with Tom here and everyone knows it. That was another stupid post.

I have no stake in this whatsoever, but Tom is rarely if ever the instigator here and catches way too much horsefeathers, IMO. If people don’t like him just ignore him. I’m surprised he doesn’t push back more, actually.

From the game threads:

Regular Show wrote:Not a huge priority, but I think we need to cut Steven Souza Jr. and Almora. We could add better backup OF/bench bats at the trade deadline for minor prospects. I hate Almora and I'm not impressed with Souza. Hopefully, we have a little bit of money to add some better bats and create a deeper roster...


I wrote that in the game threads a few weeks back. I was happy that Souza was DFA'd and my intention was not to come in here and yell at Tom. I don't normally do that. I usually just ignore his posts, NOLA.

Maybe you do. I’m just saying that you and Judas (are you the same guy?) do drive-bys on him for no other reason than you don’t like him often enough. I enjoy his posts and to see him get banned for pushing back once out of every 10 times he gets dumped on by the self anointed cool police would be a bummer. This is a message board FFS.

I spent a good month and a half ignoring him, and then completely unprompted, I got a snarky "wrong account" jibe aimed at me. At that point, all bets were and are off. When he does something especially dumb, he now gets a gif. I only select the most ridiculous posts because I'd run out of gifs if I responded to them all. I really only target the incoherent babble or godzilla-related content.

IIRC that one Cardinals/MLB mod got caught shoplifting a WalMart or something while I was there and it made the news. That guy suuuuuuuuuucked. I left PSD for NSB, probably some thanks to davell

Acctually a few people that post here were pretty active over there...Kyle, David, davell, North, aren't you WowWolf?..I wonder what happened, probably me leaving? :dontknow:

BTW some of my most controversial PSD takes ended up playing out OK:

- Cubs should take Bryant, this one wasn't so controversial but definitely the popular choice was Gray
- Cubs should take Happ over this pop up Benintendi guy, maybe they end up with both since the Red Sox may move on
- Cubs should take Beede notsomuch
- Gary Sanchez is elite, would have been better than Russell as a return for Samardzija if that was ever the offer (Sanchez's character got absolutely railroaded as a prospect)
- CC Sabathia is elite
- Jeff or Greg or Tim or John or something Garcia isn't going to become a starter for the Cardinals
- Almora's bat no bueno
