You are so respected for being sincere. However, taste this for senselessness -
Are you disguising your lack of baseball aptitude by portraying yourself as a writing professor?
My writings were targeted for a demographic comprised of unsophisticated, jaded KC baseball fans, so I kept it simple. Also, I targeted DM and his insiders knowing that they take an occasional peek. We were pleased with our outcome. Go RSN!!!
As you may be able to persuade yourself by managing to justify any given matter, far greater challenges await you. Simply because it will be too late when you reach the point of acknowledging your shortcomings. By this time you will reflect on many of your oversights and understand that all along I tried to show you the light.
This board exercised their right to voice opinions regarding Aviles and I read many of them. This is an issue not of hate, but of opportunity. Tony Pena was given an opportunity and so were many others. To translate opportunity for you, imagine being a dog tied to a fence and your leash is changed from a short one to longer one, but never taken off. Its called restrictions- When you are restricted, you are limited. Who needs that?
I always understood, never wanted fans to hate, did not make things up and tried to take out of your darkness. Go KC !!!
You know, since Aviles was drafted in 2003, and Tony Pena took a powder rather early in 2005, exactly when did Pena have the opportunity to see the greatness that was to be in Mike Aviles?
