    ESPN has an interesting article up regarding Toronto potentially stealing signs.

    At one game over .500, like I said, it's really not helping.....

    so you're assuming that they'd still be one game over .500 if they didn't steal signs? (obviously presuming that they actually are)

    No - I know they wouldn't be (assuming they're ripping off signs).
    But what good is the risk of stealing signs if it's only gonna put your team at one game over .500?
    Wouldn't it be better to sink your energies into something that will help you contend?

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    At the same time, having a guy dressed in all white putting his arms up wouldn't take alot of energy.

    Yanks got name-dropped a lot in that article. I wonder if it was a Yankee that Bautista had that "conversation" with?

    I think the article clearly states that it was a Yankee pitcher who called out Batista.

    Why does a catcher with a .200 BA have his own Twitter page???

    I would assume yes - remember when he flipped out last year when someone threw near him, and then spit towards Robertson when he hit the homer? I bet this is connected.

    If making racist and homophobic remarks makes you unsignable, then nobody on my former high school's baseball team would be eligible and I'm sure the majority of posters on this board would fall under that category as well. That said, I don't know exactly what the guy posted.

    EDIT: Just read the tweets. If that's all he said, I see 10x worse stuff on my facebook feed everyday.

    #1 Ugh, what?

    #2 There's a link within the article to what he posted

    Edited my post probably just as you were posting this. The stuff he posted is, unfortunately, the way a large amount of today's teenagers talk. Obviously it's stupid that he posted that stuff in a place as public as twitter but if the Nationals are seriously not signing him because of that, it's just silly.

    As for #1, contrary to popular belief, I actually think the average poster here is smarter than the average human, but I still wouldn't be shocked if a large number of posters make similar comments to the ones that kid did (especially our younger posters) when they're not having to speak within the guidelines of this forum.

    I've seen my fair share of less than tasteful jokes, hell I've said stuff that I've been warned about but I've never seen anyone on here dropping N bombs like he did.

    Because people are smart enough to know that if they do that it's an automatic ban. Obviously people don't talk like that on here but it wouldn't shock me if a number of them did off the site.

    Look, I'm not defending the kid's stupidity. I'm just saying that he's probably not a racist, or at least any more racist than the average person.

    He may not be a racist but it's apparent he has a complete lack of judgement.

    Another trait that's rather common of people within my age group.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Forget .200 hitters in the majors. Why does an unsigned college baseball player no one has heard of have a Twitter page? Who cares what this nobody has the say. Maybe I just don't get Twitter but I thought you had to be someone to be followed by more than your family and friends.

    I have several FB friends who treat their status updates like they are being followed with a fanbase and it's so annoying. I've blocked a few of them from showing up on my news feed.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    There's nothing to "get" about it. Twitter is just another social network. You either like it or you don't & everyone has a different opinion of what "be somebody" means.

    I'm more interested in what the nobody who runs the fake Hank Steinbrenner account has to say than what some dunce like Snooki has to say.

    Apparently the Giants have hit 19 straight solo home runs. Yikes.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    yeah, those comments don't read as racist really at all, actually, besides maybe the first bit about rapping/stepping. the n-comments are clearly dialectal. being racist isn't about using some key words. lol @ outing his teacher on twitter, though.

    lack of judgment, indeed, but a lot of kids get on facebook/twitter and say all kinds of things that would put them in legal trouble or are just awkward. raised as they have been in a more digital world, they're pretty oblivious about the repercussions.
    like delv, but better

    And if you don't cheat (or you just suck at it), you get traded.
