or c) mweir stressing himself over 17 pages of this hilarious thread
We have a winner.
What do you propose I should do? Just give up and admit what ARod did was a perfectly fine thing to do, when it most clearly wasn't. Hah, I think you know how I've always done things on this forum.
i dont care what you do. i think you're just being a homer. if this wasnt a blue jays thing you wouldnt be spilling your guts out for 18 pages and counting.
Thats not even counting the 15 or so pages in Game Commentary that he's been going for.
The great Blankman, with another great contribution.
But whining about a play where your guy was made a fool of for 40 pages is contributing?
Why don't you say 'bush league' again. We haven't heard that enough.
Still think he said "hah?"
Who cares what he said? It was one syllable long. It could have been anything. Maybe it was pitched at an A flat. Maybe McDonald usually yells an A flat and both ARod and Howie Clark have perfect pitch. Boy that ARod, he sure is crafty.
Didn't a lot of people already explain the significance between saying something like "hah" and saying something like "mine?"
Exactly, something like ha, or like mine. It could have been Dog! or Mow! or Nay!
Who knows what it was?
Maybe Selig will send it to a forensics expert so we can figure out exactly what it was.
Man, I can't wait for some concrete scientific analysis. Then this thread will really get interesting.
mweir, I'm still waiting for you to explain how a professional baseball player playing in the Majors has any excuse for allowing one syllable uttered from behind to call him off the ball, when since he was five years old he's been told, shown, trained, brainwashed to listen for, "I got it, I got it" or "MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE!"
How is it possible that one syllable caused this to happen? For all those questions you seem to have no answer for, you have yet to address this niggling little flaw in your argument.
If you are asking me, I don't really think it matters. Everyone took steroids, the pitchers, he hitters everyone. And the only reason everyone is singling him out is because he doesn't like to talk about the media.
after a ridiculously long lunch i watched the video. it doesn't change my mind. this is a non-issue. its the third baseman's fault for not catching the ball. did rodriguez distract him? yup. do they have a right to be upset? sure, they lost the game, looked stupid on that play, and still have gibbons as a manager. as far as the announcers go (who have never seen anything like this in the game) i think they are full of it. you are telling me that a 15 year veteran of MLB has never seen anything like this in his whole career? thats a load. they are defending their player and piling on arod. remember, they are announcers who are paid to deliver color commentary for people who are less "mindful" of what is happening in the game. was it sneaky? sure. bush maybe? sure. does it really matter? nope. anyone getting all hot and bothered over it has way too much time.
like others have said before... plunk him next time you see him. story over.
