Last I checked, Duda is batting .247 to Rizzo's .296. And Rizzo has a healthy RBI lead. SB (this year) is not the only category that Rizzo dominates Duda.

And you should know that no player sporting a .214 BA is a stud. Maybe one day, but not today. That pro tip is free of charge.

If you believe Duda trumped Rizzo in 2014, you're the only one who thinks so. Even Duda's own family would blush from making that statement. Rizzo outperformed Duda in every standard fantasy hitting cat except RBI.

Many experts who have written on the psychology of internet trolling observe that the "common wisdom" or typical advice of ignoring a troll is in fact a mistake. Ignoring them in effect gives them even more power (which they crave), in this case the power to silence you.

I wonder if you would make the same argument if one of your early season darlings (Souza, Betts) were dramatically outperforming expectations in a specific cat. Somehow, I doubt it.

This reminds me of the 80s infomercials with the Chinese guy who berates the viewer for not being rich and turning that wealth into more wealth. "C'mon you idiots, I get a top 3 pic and select a league MVP annually... why can't you do that?!!!" Yes, because certainly we can always count on our sheer awesomeness securing us a top pick every year....

John never said that Jones was a top 40 player. He said that Jones would be a top 40 range player with a significant BA boost. Reading comprehension ftw.
Hilarious to claim that Rizzo is a 19th round talent without his 2015 SBs, as he was a top 30 player (26th overall) just last year with only 5 SBs.

Have to go Upton there myself, next is Cruz. Chapman is dynamite, but with only 4 keepers a closer is not a great way to go.

The key word you seem to have overlooked when replying to my post was "IF". IF Souza or Betts had wildly outperformed expectations in a specific stat. Not "ARE" outperforming.
Reading comprehension ftw.

For someone who likes to tout logic and reason, it's strange that by far the most likely and logical reason has eluded you... which is that he is Canadian, rather than from "across the pond." He may be British, of course, but that is not the most likely reason.

Sigh... "even if he is a Canadian living in Britain"? Isn't it the FAR more likely (and logical) scenario that he is a Canadian living in... CANADA? Unless North America is the wrong side of the pond.
Thus, your assessment would be incorrect.

You proved me wrong, RL? When? How? Oddly, the event is not to be found in your posting history. Was the post where this happened deleted?
- Crasstastic Crasstastic Aug 19, 2015 9:36 PM Flag
"YOU proved me RIGHT while proving yourself WRONG since you continued your replies to DS and he to you. Thus you fed the troll, which was the opposite effect that you stated!" ...the opposite effect that I stated. What effect did I state, that this was the opposite of? Your ravings have gone completely off the rail at this point... I'm serious, I haven't got a clue what the hell you're talking about.
You seem to be referencing some phantom post where I stated that if one engages a troll, they will disappear, and therefore by my engaging Strong and him NOT disappearing, I proved myself (or my imagined theory) wrong. But I made no such claim. Ever.
You certainly are doubling down on the disturbing sexual imagery. I guess I have to give you credit for fully embracing this dark (and gross) fantasy... way to commit, soldier! But I must point out... it's really funny that you're accusing ME of "becoming" a troll, since your brave swan dive into the world of ad hominem attacks bears far more of a resemblance to the lives-under-bridges set than anything I've typed here.

You are free to doubt all you like, the truth of my statement is not dependent on your belief or agreement.
But just so you are coming from an informed place, do yourself a favour and read over Strong's posting history. He is ignored, or at least not engaged after his attacks, far, FAR more often than not. If your theory were correct, this should have worked in deflating his trolling. Yet it has not (shocking, I know).
