You mentioned many different teams that have participated, but not one other baseball team in the professional ranks. Why is that you think? After 20 years of being losers this is not the answer, and if it were I would bet that organizations that are actually successful would be participating in this type of activity also. You win baseball games by first being sound with fundamentals. The whole “hoka hey rah rah” attitude is for college. Get over yourself and observe what successful teams do with their players at the minor league level instead of arguing like kids over a timeframe for an injury that may or may not have happened during bogus drills that won’t help them win games in the first place. These guys are pathetic excuses for development staff and need to get out of baseball. Stark is an ex-volleyball player that had zero experience running a farm before he came to the Pirates. Quit defending mediocrity and ridiculousness.

The usual internet tough guys seemed more meek when actually confronted with the person they were busy impugning. Not too unusual. That’s why names should be the only ‘handles’. As in ACTUAL names. I loved Dale Berra too, but I’m fine posting as myself.

It just goes back to the ridiculous argument he put forward about how the system hasn’t been built up. For some reason he’s still holding on to that, as shown last night. It’s stuff like that which makes it look like he has a grudge. When he’s criticizing for something that is widely praised, that shows something.

No? Maybe I read it wrong.

In context, he was being sarcastic. He said the system stinks, you (and others) said all these experts say it doesn’t, he was then dismissive.

I went to bed early last night (well, early for my standards). My last post in the thread was around midnight.

He didn’t say I should try evaluating it myself. He asked why I would evaluate it, rather than just citing other people.

When you mentioned the experts agreeing that we have a good system and he said you should try evaluating it yourself you should have buried him.

Its a shame it turned into a love fest for how brave he was doing a chat there. He is correct about many things, but no one seems to call him on his BS to his face. When he is wrong, he instantly becomes dismissive.

You did a great job remaining professional despite his taunts about you being “angry” and others.
