I definitely find the complaining and policing posts waaaaay worse than the the game commentary. That can actually be pretty helpful in keeping ahead of the masses. Most of us aren't going through boxscores all night, so it helps when the guy watching his favorite team is chiming in about a 9th inning going badly. But the bitching about what posts are worth posting is useless.

This thread was classic before this year and now it's just childish. Bunch of freakin little girls. I rarely check in anymore. Too bad. Used to be one of the most valuable threads around here. :-C

Looks like Troncoso is gaining more and more of Torre's trust as the setup man to Brox. Despite 1 on 2nd with no outs in the ninth, and third base with one out, he was "wild enough to be effective!" Was worried about the wild pitch but it didn't happen. Had 2 on w/ no outs in the 8th, but Soriano chased tons of bad pitches, and then got the GIDP shortly after. With Cory Wade not quite there (he was pretty lucky all last year) and the rest of the bullpen a tad iffy, Troncoso could garner vulture saves, but as a dodger fan, I would really be sweating it if Brox went down for any length of time. A more patient offense might have fared a lot better tonight, especially since he had to get 6 outs.

I can't believe people don't find it wise for someone to do a tiny tiny tiny bit of research before posting a question with a simple answer.

I guess this is what it's come to.

So be it.

If you don't like/aren't interested in someone's post there is this thing down the right hand side of your screen called the scroll bar.
The scroll bar moves the page up and down so that you can read what doesn't fit on your screen.
Some mouses even have a scroll wheel in them if the scroll bar is too difficult for you, and they are usually really cheap to buy.
You roll the scroll wheel up and down, using the same principals as the scroll bar to read what doesn't fit on your screen.

No, no, no. I didn't call him a "common-sense genius". I called him a "delicate genius" like in Seinfeld. (Get it Seinfeld fans, 'cuz his time is so valuable). I thought I should put something fun in my rant* .... y'know....because fantasy baseball is supposed to be FUN.

That's why we're all here, not to feel bad, or angry, or lazy, or dumb, but to take a little fantasy baseball break and have a little fun.

* And maris and the other poster, I apologize if it was a bit much, but in my defense I also went golfing for the first time this morning. And if someone talked down to me on the course I really think I'd be reluctant to go back. That's what's happening here. Even some responses have said it. This forum should make us want to participate more in our leagues and get more into the game because Fantasy baseball is really, really awesome. Do you think the French have an equivalent game? Hell no! My point: Someone getting into this game is more important than the second or two it takes to read a post you don't like.

That's it, I've said my piece. Geez, I feel like Mikey from the Goonies.

Now, let's work together and get that "rich stuff"!
