    you can be sure I will take your praise in the spirit it was no doubt intended. My brother.
    Good point, but I am not substituting in this instance. I genuinely like it.

    Some of the prime provocateurs of bitchin posts are silent. Some that add to the bad vibe and still posted on this thread must not realize they come off as mean and nasty and thus continue the bad vibe.

    I'm all for more civil discussion, but I hope we're still able to tell an idiot he's an idiot.

    Of course. How else will they know?
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    It should be noted that I voted no because I feel like I have been very civil in my time on this site and feel no need to be any more civil going forward. I am surprise by how many people voted yes. Shame on all of them for not being civil enough to this point.

    It's more fun if we keep it from you.

    Here's an idea: whoever can go the longest without getting sucked into a flame war over insignificant trivialities gets to be the opening day starter.

    (How's your arm feeling these days, glunn?)

    I am having physical therapy to deal with pericapsulitis in my shoulder. But if the choice comes down to me or Correia, then I am willing to go out there for the good of the team.

    But sometimes you just can't fix stupid, no matter how hard you try.

    Thanks, old friend and now my brother. Your posts have greatly added to the richness of this site and I have enjoyed our camaraderie. Your posts made it easier for me to get through the disappointments of last season.

    That reminds me. It's easy to make friends on this on this site if you are open to the idea. And you can passionately disagree and debate yet remain friends.

    I feel like this gets overlooked far too often, my brother

    You're an idiot. Now go sit in the corner and play with your toys.

    I'm not feeling any of this love and mutual respect.

    Feel it from me. I genuinely consider you as my brother. We are part of an elite minority of Twins fans who get to read some of the most insightful articles ever written. Yes, in the forums we sometimes have to wade through mud to get to the green grass, and sometimes there is unnecessary bickering, but we choose to be here, together.
