    Now hold on a minute here, Snepp is no mere moderator, he's a super moderator, let's get it right.

    Having cleared that up, there was really nothing to moderate, Fro's comment was pointless (maybe mine was too, if you choose the simpleton interpretation), but it wasn't inappropriate. Let's not turn into the mod police.

    My point, which I didn't do a very good job of making, is that there is a "Report Post" function available at the bottom of every post (the little icon with the exclamation point). This will bring any potentially problematic posts to the attention of the entire staff, and is much preferable to starting what could easily turn into a pissing match. Report the post, move along, and allow the admins to determine if any action is necessary.

    Thank you, that's exactly what I meant.

    There's some classics on here, my personal fave is the guy setting himself on fire. I'm waiting until the season starts to use it....or until Lightfoot posts something again.

    Mhm. Since the mods and the twerp seem to differ on what's appropriate and not, oh never-mind.

    I got what you were saying...I'm not sure you got where snepp was going with his instruction. True, twerp wouldn't have gotten his way had he simply reported it...but there still would have benefit overall...that benefit being that his post wouldn't have been posted in the first place.

    Of course, if people would stop and think for 30 seconds and try moderating themselves before hitting that old reply button...

    Well, I'm going to side with the ones who are trusted to enforce the forums rules on this one.

    I guess I'm not sure what exactly I did that made the Twerp respond like such a, well, twerp to most of my posts. Probably commented on a joke that went over gangbusters at the old MENSA meeting, but fell flat on the forum.

    Or if people would stop looking for inappropriateness when it's not there just cause they don't agree with the post to begin with...

    Well, it didn't really move the conversation along, though...

    We're not running a monastery and this is not the town from Footloose, folks. Lighten up a little.
    Completely agree, having read my post again, I was quite deserving of some derision. I have to re-evaluate my late night offerings, if you're too tired to provide some context, you probably should just log off and go to bed.

    We all know that baseball is a streaky game... Players get hot and they get cold... The month of June that Plouffe had was more that just a streak and that is why I'm optimistic about Plouffe this year.

    I don't expect Trevor to duplicate that month ever again... It can only be viewed as an exception in my thinking.

    However... Anybody who can get that hot... Has something. What was he? .314 12 home runs... something like that. Thats off the charts. If you can do that... No matter if it was an isolated streak... If you can do that... You have a bench mark of something working right to go back to... You have video to look at... as a guide to work through slumps...

    In 2011 23 dingers AAA and MLB combined in 478 at bats...

    In 2013... If he stays healthy... He could pick up around 600 at bats... If you factor all that in... An expectation of 30 plus homers is not far fetched.

    I think Plouffe has arrived... It's all in his hands... I'm prepared to be ecstatic.
