We can sit here and crunch numbers or throw out hyperbolous ceiling and floor projections all night, we're still going to disagree.
But I'm still listening. I just think you're wrong.
I don't think it would be hard to interpret this sentence:don't waste your breath. that's what i've been trying to tell him, but he won't listen.
as you insinuating that I was stubborn or stupiddid i say you were stubborn or unreasonable or stupid?
not in so many words, but I think it's clear why I thought so.
i didn't insinuate or imply anything. if you assumed something in that statement and took it that way, that's your problem, not mine.
i don't agree with your opinion, but i respect it, as i'm sure you do mine. where have i ever stated that i don't respect it?
i was talking to HIM. i was telling him that if that is the only argument that he's got to try to convince you (that unless we count stats retroactively pujols will be better than arod from here on out), don't bother because i already made that argument and it didn't convince you.
YOU are the first one to lose your cool and get disrespectful here. if i WAS going to get upset and insult some stranger in a forum over some opinion of his that i don't even really care about, i would've said more than "don't waste your breath," and i would've said it to you directly.
if you took offense to what i said, all you had to say was "that's messed up" or something to that effect and i would've apologized immediately. as it is, you overreacted to something that was not there, in a statement that wasn't even addressed toward you.
I guess it was your turn to overreact.
(We really need that smiley holding up a peace sign.)
My last post was intended to be a clear olive branch, as I was saying that I misunderstood you, I really expected you'd soften up, but what an interpretation.
I wasn't overtly apologizing, but come on man, in light of that last post, you were obviously looking for a reason to make this personal.
you know what? lets forget it. i'm sorry for my part in the misunderstanding.
i didn't think i was being insulting, but if another poster (shasty mcnasty) is posting that what i posted did sound insulting, then it's not entirely your fault for taking it that way. at least some of the blame has to fall on me.
