    You are a good hearted person. Judging by the vitrol I have read in many of the threads there is no need for a thick skin to post. If you read what others post on what you write there is a need for thick skin. Anonymity has allowed people's inner butt head to show. If one disagrees with a group viewpoint hackels are raised and let the denigration begin.

    One still has to wonder with Blackburn. After the bone chips were removed in 2010 he never seemed quite like the same pitcher. For a pitcher that relied on command than overpowering pitches, the loss of command surely affected the outcome.

    What's wrong with that?
    It also appears that some of the more "insensitive" comments have been deleted.

    Yeah, it's likely the most admirable thing about you how you can always state something once or mayyyyyybe twice and then be done with it. I feel like Fletch in the presence of Stanton Boyd.

    Not sure why we feel the need to rush to Blackburn's defense here. I was under the impression that the main topic of these forums was baseball, and if the subjects of the thread are Nick Blackburn and baseball, there's not a whole lot of positive things to say.

    Did this thread just, with a straight face, claim that a MAJORITY of players probably read the stuff on here? Wow.
