    I'm also curious about this:

    What exactly is lost with the name change? If this is part of cancel culture, what is being cancelled?

    If you say tradition, what tradition is lost? Here is the...

    To anyone calling this is p**** PC stuff......I have a proposal:

    If MLB expands and gets a team in NC or Vegas or wherever, here are some suggestions for names (I'll use NC as an example):

    No typo. Manfred just finally did the right thing.

    Dang. You almost had me. I thought you were seriously arguing. The "lol" gave it away. Well done.
  7. I'm quoting the above post because it was my...

    I'm quoting the above post because it was my original and I'm struggling to find the over dramatization. If what I wrote is drama to you, then real drama must have you curled up in a fetal position,...

    Whoops. I responded to specific sections but didn't separate them. Look at the gray quoted box above my previous post.
  9. Continuing to bring up the 17 MVP and world...

    Continuing to bring up the 17 MVP and world series is a poor attempt at a jab. I was able to get over 2001 and 2004. Say something of substance and back it up with evidence.

    Instead of using energy to take jabs by questioning others' arguments, use that energy to come up with a real reason why pitchers shouldn't throw at batters other than it being "childish and/or...

    Wow you're reaching. I'll use terminology you understand: sample size. I'm sure if we extended the Astros cheating scandal to equal the 5 years studied in the linked article, we'd see a greater...

    You're probably right about not trying to reason with him. However, I don't think it has to do with his understanding of masculinity. I think he's one of the fans who just wants computers to play the...

    You set the precedent for bad arguments. Claiming that a pitcher who got lit up by the Astros wasn't good enough to begin with, without providing evidence, was a bad argument.

    I just looked up...

    Okay, any player not tough enough to take a baseball to the hip shouldn't be in the game.

    Excuse me while I play a sorrowful tune on the world's smallest cello.

    Trying to devalue the sentiment of retaliation/retribution/justice by saying "we don't play in the sport" can easily be reversed: why is someone defending a person they don't know who plays a sport...

    I wanted to write about a couple of things that have scarcely been discussed. I wanted to mention these things because the discussion veered into "will the Astros be as good with or without the...

    Using nostalgia as proof of my post being sanctimonious is something I can't respond to. With regards to nostalgia: I'm not looking for Nostalgia. I'm 30 years old so Nostalgia for me would be the...

    My username may already turn some of you off to this, but I think this part of Manfred's report speaks to why the Astros are getting more heat for this:
    "But while no one can dispute that Luhnow’s...

    You attempted to delegitimize the strength of the fan base by making this comment. You spent a long time going back and forth with others trying to disprove this. Just admit it. You took a jab....

    Rather than fall down the rabbit hole that you and judgemenot fell into (I won't argue about semantics or who said what), I'll just give my take:

    - If you're saying that you believe the...
