Good way to stay on topic and contribute to the thread. :-t :-°


what you dont agree? i mean they are drafting a year and a half before the 2007 starts. this league is gonna end up being a mess/already sort of is.

I don't think the point of the thread was to ask for a better way to do the draft, or to question why they did it. Maybe they didn't want to do a slow draft. Maybe they liked doing it in person while working. I agree it's already a mess, but he's not coming here asking for alternate drafting methods.


Nobody made a negative mention to it except for you, so basically if it wasn't for you nobody would have really cared that much that he made a post regarding the types of drafts. I mean, this isn't about alternative drafting methods, but the thread isn't about bashing mods/vets, either.

Besides if I was his boss I probably wouldn't be happy about fantasy drafts going on while workers were on the clock.

No one is bashing anyone. I thought it was an unnecessary comment.


So is it necessary to comment on it in a degrading fashion?

Your sarcastic tone was clearly bashing IMO.

How about we quit bickering and all try to figure out how in the world Victor Martinez is still going in the top five rounds of any draft. :-?

My sarcastic tone? If this is where we're at now, then I don't know what I'm supposed to do. If you want to now say my lines of text on the internet has a sarcastic tone, that's not my fault. I can't control the way you take it, but for you to just claim it had a sarcastic tone really ruins the whole point of me posting anything. :-t I take your post as condescending and threatening. How's that? I guess it doesn't matter how you meant it, because I feel it's threatening. Kind of ridiculous, huh?

Because I said it wasn't contributing, means I'm bashing him? What I said was far from a bash. I'm done with this. I'm not going to keep defending myself to irrational thought and overreaction.

You're honestly going to say that "Good way to stay on topic and contribute to the thread. :-t :-° " isn't a sarcastic tone and an unwarranted attack on one of the top moderators and posters here?

And you say I'm irrational... :-°

Ok, so it was sarcastic. I screwed up there, I still don't see how it's an attack. It was me saying I don't think it was contributing. I wasn't bashing him, flaming him, or anything. I'll even apologize now if it was seen as an attack, but I don't understand how you can see it that way.

Yes David, I agree. How is he still going so early?

I wouldn't have considered drafting VMart at his draft day price this year, but I would have thought no one would still make that reach after this year. Half of the catchers on the FA list in my league are suitable to be on my team. No need to waste an early pick on him.
