The past couple days have made me realize why I stopped reading sports message boards

They’re mostly full of idiots looking to trash anything and everything in an effort to show that they’re smarter than the people who run the teams for a living. Why bother to look at the full effect of a trade when you can crame it down into one dimension and feel superior? Did a trade just help the team in 3 or 4 different ways? Eh, doesn’t matter, you can always cherrypick the stats and prove that your GM is a raving loon because there’s no way the pitcher he just picked up will ever hit .300. I open up these pages and I just have an intense urge to get all Coulter-like and inform them of their stupidity.
Luckily the Enquirer’s Reds blog is a bastion of relative sanity.
