People are gettin so uptight about the kid's damn start that they can't even take a little sarcasm and a jab at the risk they took. Time to chill out folks.

Check out D-Train's first month last year. In his third start he got shelled by the expos. Well, in Riley's third start he got shelled by th D-Rays. I think he'll turn out all right.

Very good research. I remeber that btw. ;-D ;-D

I watched the kid pitch 2nite. He has nasty stuff, he just needs to command his pitches. I still think he can live up to the hype.

Although I have to say im a bit sad I droped Harden for him

If Riley makes a good comeback in his next start. Props to the kid and I'll eat some crow. But people getting so damn defensive because of somebody's comment on a player, that's just crazy. People act like they're best friends with everyone in the MLB.

Wow, you really wanna nitpick?

An "I told you so" - figure of speech referring to the act of telling people they were wrong when you were right. But you are correct in that you were never right. You never gave any input on Riley, so as far as the rest of us know, you too were on the bandwagon, got burned, and are now on the "Riley sucks" bandwagon. Point being, you're a coward. Grow up.

Who are you to be calling me a coward? You don't even know me. To be telling somebody to grow up, when you're the one throwing out names, is insane. I made a general post, just like many other people will about Riley tonight and tomorrow. I said before, if he comes back and proves me wrong, I'll eat my crow. I admitted to getting fooled on the hype of Affeldt and Vogelsong, even though I never personally voiced my opinion on them, so once again, who the hell are you to be calling me a coward?

Guys.......Let's try to keep this discussion mellow. The bottom line is that we are all looking for this year's Dontrelle or Webb.

Please refrain from namecalling so that we can keep this thread open.

Thanks, I was looking for a moderator to get into this. This is a place for knowledge, advice, and the occasional joke or sarcastic message to be shared. The occasional heated debate is okay, but the namecalling has me outraged, although it was just some petty stuff.

We all lose control once in a while. Even Riley. I look for him to rebound.
