The amount of joke, sarcastic and off-topic responses in the Cafe seems to have increased in the last year or two. Frustrating when you are looking for good info and informed opinions, which the Cafe is second to none at providing.
All due respect, but it's just as frustrating for a Soriano owner to see his name in the "Injuries & Player Updates" forum wondering if there's something new being reported about him, only to find out it's just a guy venting 'cause Fonzie has been hitless over a few games. I was looking for "good info" and got nothin'! A fairly pedestrian three-game oh-fer by a notoriously streaky player doesn't qualify as a "player update", IMO.
Perhaps the "Game Commentary, Cheering & Venting" forum would have been in order here: "Watching the game? Talk about all the action, analyze umpires' decisions and pitch counts, smile when your pitcher gets out of a jam, and vent when your star slugger goes 0-for-5.
" Or even "Leftovers."
Athough I suppose I should be happy that it wasn't any real news about him, 'cause it could've been BAD news...
