He wasn't posting on a somewhat scientific fantasy stats/team site, he was mouthing off to other fans. Instead of getting in to a drawn out annoyance fest just tell the guy the world doesn't revolve around the yanks, to think how much better of a record they'd have if they were in the AL or NL Central and the take a hike, jerky.
Pretty sure that's essentially what I did. I then came back later in the day and there was 5 more pages of his nonsense.
You have a lot of control over how conversations go with most people. I know you've seen some of the worst of them here like the Cow, but they're the minority. It would seem that these interactions of the past have contributed to decisions of most of the cafe regulars to be rather caustic and unable or unwilling to handle everyday fans with out craziness like in this thread. A person used to be able to come here a glean solid info rather quickly. Now it seems it's a which regular can impress his other regular buddies the most with the most snarky comment or caustic positioning of a view point. Maybe that's the goal here, more pages of crap to sort though, more clicks, more ads viewed. I certainly have put time into finding better resources out there rather than sort though the bile. x site just doesn't have much about it up yet. Funny read here at the cafe though
You might have a point if the guy posting was actually contributing something worthwhile. He wasn't. It was something more along the lines of trolling.
The fact that I was on the side of the majority this time (a rarity, indeed) should also say something about what the guy was posting.
