It seems to have offended Phil Dumbphy enough that he doesn't post here anymore.

Its just amazes me how things can be blown out of proportion to justify these guys but completley ignored at other times. The excuse that Delmon Youngs slur was the reason our Jewish owners didnt sign him is laughable. Especially when he went to a team with Jewish owners

Is this a witch hunt now?, If you have never used a slur towards anyone in your whole life even in a joking matter,then your a better man/person than me. However , Young nor syndergaard were not the first and wont be the last pro athletes/humans to make/say a stupid comment. Iam not playing it down, Iam just being a realist. Id be more worried about the young bat throwing incident. btw syndergaard said it to his friend in a joking fashon. He didnt say it to try to directly offend anyone. The comment was meant and directed towards his friend.

Where were the Wilpons when they signed Ryan Church? that was a little more than a joke with a friend. The point is the people that are using Youngs slur as the reason he wasnt signed is the witch hunt. Its abusurd that people cannot just say, "Yeah, we should have been in on that"

Koolaiders will come up with an excuse for everything. I'm Jewish and I certainly would prefer Young over Kirk, Duda, Cowgill, MDD and others.

Wasn't a joke. Church asked a question of clergyman Jon Moeller in Nats clubhouse.

from Washington Post Sept 18, 2005:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/17/AR2005091701522.html

"Church was concerned because his former girlfriend was Jewish. He turned to Moeller, "I said, like, Jewish people, they don't believe in Jesus. Does that mean they're doomed? Jon nodded, like, that's what it meant. My ex-girlfriend! I was like, man, if they only knew. Other religions don't know any better. It's up to us to spread the word." "




You see Church's concern for his girlfriend's fate (and fate of <Jews in general) of potentially being <damned throughout eternity because they don't believe in Jesus & wanting to save their souls as the same thing as Young ASSAULTING someone while SCREAMING RACIAL EPITHETS & getting ARRESTED for (and pleading GUILTY to) a HATE CRIME?

I couldn't find any info about any of the Phillies owners being Jewish. Only that they have a HALF Jewish GM. GM is an EMPLOYEE of the owners. He does as he's told by the owners.

So who are these Jewish owners of the Phillies?

No, he was make the point that we should have signed Young despite his anti-semetic tirade.

Which uses as its one and only premise, that he wasn't signed because of the tirade.

And he used ridiculous comparisons.

Did they not sign anyone else because of racial slurs? Or criminal records? Or bad hygiene?

Dude you misunderstood me big time. At no point did I or do I wanna smear a 19 uear old kid. I think its absurd thet peoples EVERY word is under a microscope. My point was how STUPID it is to use Youngs <jewish slur as a reason the Wilpons didnt sign him. The Wilpon defenders LOVE using whatever they can to defend the non moves. The biggest defense on not signing Young was the slur. My question was, why wasnt anyone upset of Synderguard then? My thread was to point out hypocrosy. I have NO IDEA how you took that as Im smearing the kid but that is not my intention

I think he wasn't signed because the Wilpons don't want to spend money.

I don't think 750K or so is too much even for them.

Then I'm not sure why we didn't sign him. At least he has proven to be acceptable at the MLB level.
