I don't mind the bunting most of the time just because of who we have in the lineup, but if they can't hit, at least make sure they can bunt. If they can't even do that, you might as well just let them swing.

Do folks even know what Kluber throws?
Sorry, not a Kluber, mph guru. I thought he threw harder than that. You know, being our Ace for the last few years, I assumed he went harder than 93. My bad.
FYI, not everyone that views the boards knows every stat and metric. I see why this board has few posters over here on the Indians board. Some here like to be condescending assholes.

Ok, I get that some of us can come off as condescending assholes at times to those who don't care to research as much, but I'm not seeing it in this situation.

If you didn't know how hard he threw then shouldn't your post have been "Wow, that seems low. What does he usually throw?"

Dude you worded your post acting like you knew what he actually throws. Why don’t you chill out? No need for that.

Haha. I love this. I understand what you mean. However, please keep posting in here if you are interested, as conversation is always good.

There are a few ways to communicate in the Indians section:
1. Ask questions and get answers
2. State facts and get props
3. Share your thoughts and feelings and strap in for a beating

The last one makes for the most entertainment. You'll realize that the jerks are mostly like a mean older brother or a horrible father. They don't respect you, but they do love you.

4. Troll the fuck out of the section and then bitch about how this section and the people in it are terrible.

Even your "apology" comes off super douchey. "Not a Kluber mph guru"?

You said his velocity is concerning. You probably shouldn't follow that up by insinuating that it's completely unreasonable to expect a person to understand the argument he brings up in the first place. Insinuating that you need to be a "guru" to either already know roughly what our pitchers throw... or to do the minimal amount of research and look it up before you make an argument to the contrary is, in my opinion, not a genuine apology--it's just another attack.

If someone in Genpop said that Kevin Love was a bad three point shooter, that wouldn't fly. We'd laugh at that person. We'd tell them to learn a bit before making statements like that. Why should we expect anything less here?

This is an interesting continued position.

It’s a good way to justify bullying and personal attacks to equate those posts to posts that don’t directly attack anyone and posts that point the bullying posts out.

Claiming posts say people “are terrible” is a good way to take the heat off too because it makes the people pointing out the bullying behavior look like they’re doing something out of the box rather than acknowledging the bullying and personal attacks and just stopping it.

But hey...I’d bet you guys will eventually figure it out.
