In Response to Re: A Realistic look at 2012: Part I
[QUOTE]I've got to say that I agree with you for the first time since the Gonzo deal, which I reckon is going to look like highway robbery in a couple of years. What Gonzo did this year, just coming off shoulder surgery is nothing short of amazing. Don't fall for the lies. I never wanted Dunn at even close to what Chicago spent and I wanted him for 1B- 3 years ago and as a possibility in LF last winter. You are a liar. You were slobbering over Dunn for years. You would have paid a fortune for a player who was a strike out king without the athletic talent to produce at a massive contract level. While softy's revisionist history will tell you he was "the leader in advocating for Gonzo" nothing could be farther from the truth. He blasted boom 2 years ago for wanting AGon, and all last season was saying there was a 50% chance that AGon would be traded at all before bcoming a FA. Boom wanted Agon for 2010, liar. I wanted Beltre for 2010, then said that Agon was an essential trade and extension for 2011 and that he would be 100% would be traded. I said it was at least 50/50 that the Red Sox would close the winter deal. I said it was only at leat 50/50 because of the extension issue. You then came in after the new was on the street and claimed to have "called it" by referring to one of your earlier ramblings about a hypothetical trade you would offer for AGon but you never went beyond saying you did not think the Padres would trade him last winter. You simply claimed you did, after the news was on the street. You are a fantasy mind stat snipet pasting loser who simply responds after the fact. You claimed the Twins couldn't afford Mauer, and I schooled you on the details on why the Twins could afford him and would extend him. You then admitted I was correct, but attempted to pretend that I was off on the range for Mauer's base, which was a detailed range that was stated as how high the Twins would and could go. He then said, if it happened, it would be for "Jake and Jed". Liar. I said that Kelly should be kept off the table if at all possible and Lowrie and Ellsbury should be included if Hoyer wanted more than farm scraps. Hoyer got hosed. I stated that the deal needed to be done and that who the 3 or 4 players were was totally dependent upon what Hoyer, desperate to sell, would go for. I correctly called the AGon trade last Spetmeber and showed softy the link when he lied about me earlier. Liar, you never called anything. In fact, despite your attempts to prevaricate about your hypothetical ramblings about Agon, long after my detailed trade thread in August, a copy of my own issue articulation, you stated in September that it was possible but you did not believe the Padres would trade Agon unless it was for "a king's ransom". I later said we'd trade Kelly, Rizzo and Bowden for AGon: softy said I was an idiot. No, after the Agon imminent trade talk was on the street, you simply aped the names that were on MLB trade rumours. Bowden was not possible, as he had zero trade value, and you still are an idiot for listing him. Rizzo was on my list of players to include if needed, but Kelly should be kept off the table if at all possible because of the lousy job InEpstein has done in FA contract for pitchers and farm pitching drafting development. Later when proven wrong, instead of admitting He was wrong and I was right, he blamed it on the "idiotic SD GM for noe demanding Ellsbury and Lowrie". You and your fellow loser shill, Harnazz, didn't predict or state that Agon would be traded at all. Harnazz, idiot that he is, claimed 100% certain Agon would not be traded last winter. It is a fact that Hoyer got hosed. Then, there was softy's lengthy thread whereby he claimed over and over that AGon would not extend in April, like many of us claimed he would, but instead would become a FA, and that the fact that we only traded Kelly and Rizzo for him proved it was just a 1 year rental. Liar. I said that the extension was likely to get done but not by opening day as Becketts did, but only if Agon allowed InEpstein off the hook for hedging. Only Agon's good character allowed a bad character like Inepstein to hedge by waiting until Agon played into early April and showed he was healthy on shoulder (took known steroids user in trade) Slomag can attest to it. Of course, now he is claiming he got that one right too, just as he claimed Mauer would sign for $17-18M/yr with MN. Liar. I never said what Mauer would end up signing for, only that the Twins would afford the estimated market range of 18 to 24M base and would extend Mauer. You kept stating, over and over, that the twins couldnt afford him. I went into detail on his agent and Target field up front money and how Twins would sign him. You admitted I was right, then resorted to prevarication on actual contract base after the fact. Don't drink the Clown Kool-Aid: it's poison. Sox4ever Folks, I usually ignore this out to lunch idiot, but it is quite clear that he does not ignore me as he keeps claiming. There is nothing realistic about his idle fantasy mind or offering 3 or 4M for a geriatrics Part 2 edition of timmy T-Ball and Varitek. And harness, how did you like Napoli magic fingers WS catching duty. Idiot!

Again you stick UR foot in UR mouth. Napoli constantly came up short compared to Mathis. You have no concept as tom how this criteria is measured.
With Napoli catching in the PO's, TX pitching has allowed appx. 4 runs per game. This is against the Rays, the Tigers, and the retirement league Cards. That's a far cry from NY/Boston/Philly, fool.
How are the 2nd rate
Did VMART do himself proud as a DH?
