It wasn't after the fact. I made my first reply before I knew anything about the Sox-Twins score.
The Twins vs. Boston game started @ 1:05. Your first post scolding people who sat him was at 2:53 pm. I'm sure you knew the score or how the game was going by then, brah. If you had time to post here, I'm sure you had more than enough time to glance at a box score.
I'm not naive enough to think I can outsmart the game. If any of us were, we'd be millionaires from sports betting. Any player can have a breakout game, any day, against anyone. "Any given Sunday." On a 1/162 scale, it's basically random who has a good game and who doesn't. So you just stick with the good players and hope that they fulfill their value over the course of the entire season.
Ok.. so I bench a guy who has been injured and hasn't really performed well in about 3 years. I bench him in week 2 against a strong offensive team. No one is trying to outsmart the game. Brah, you're not a fantasy teacher. I've been playing since 2002. No need to dole out your fantasy nuggets of wisdom.
Liriano had faced Boston twice in his career. If those two games were the reason you benched him, that's naive. Like I said, we operate on a 1/162 scale, not a 162-game scale. Anything can happen on a day-to-day basis. Rookies hit grand slams and bat .200 for the reason of the season. Sluggers go 0-6 and finish the season batting .320. So trying to predict what's going to happen on a day-to-day basis during a 162-game season is impossible.
And way to not listen to anything I posted previously. In my last post, I clearly stated that's NOT the only reason I decided to sit him. Re-read my other post if you want the other reasons. And also way to presumptive, brah. I never said anything about predicting what's going to happen on a' day to day 162 game basis'
Sounds like you're reading a bit too much into benching Liriano than anyone else here.
Listen, I'm not trying to argue, but I think it should be OK that people benched Liriano --- and I don't think they should be called 'naive' or be accused of 'outsmarting the game' or criticized like that. We don't agree. That's fine. But when you resort to crazy accusations, assumptions and name calling -- then you need to relax -- it's just fantasy.
