I usually use Sporttrac when it comes to salary since they usually stay pretty updated when it comes to that.
You must not use it that often if you still don't realize it's Spotrac, not SpoRtTrac :)

I jest.

It took me like a decade to realize that the reporter, Shams Charania, was the same guy who ran Shamsports, which was the contract site I used to use for NBA salaries.

Much appreciated. I love responsive government. I'll vote for you in the next moderator election.

This isn't your department but do you know why all those thingys at the top are grayed out? It would be nice to be able to put key phrases in bold or italics.
Moderator elections?

I want to thank all of you guys for all the effort you put into the Tribe forum this season. In all seriousness, I enjoyed this season much more than I had anticipated simply because of all of your posts, etc.. You guys actually helped rekindle my love of baseball. The vibe in here was all I ever wanted...a bunch of fans shooting the shit about baseball in a (mostly) friendly manner, and I learned a lot from some of you more analytically intense guys.

@Derek, I hope you come back next season.

Anyway, just as a poster and not a mod, thanks to all of you!

Guys, for the second time in a few weeks, we had another non-baseball related blowup in a Tribe thread. They pretty much all start the same -- someone makes what they think is only a "close to the line" comment about politics, someone responds by moving it further out, and then all of a sudden, someone's blood gets up and it takes off. Usually accompanied with someone who can't resist getting in their own opinion before urging everyone else to stop talking politics.
So the conversation goes from discussing spin rates and sticky in gloves, to discussing Anthony Fauci, Townhall.com, and Hermann Goering.

I appreciate everyone who stayed out of that.

I'd ask again that people stay away from that stuff. I have absolutely zero sympathy for "passion" as an excuse, and after the fact apologies for derailing a thread don't undo what happened.

Please feel free to ping me if someone sees it getting out of hand, and if I don't respond quickly enough, any mod who is online will do. You guys should know by now that literally my only agenda here is for this forum to be a good, friendly place to discuss baseball.

Goering?

Well, I suppose he has the girth to be a power hitter.

He'd be dropping bombs all over.
