    Of course this team isnt perfect. Their weaknesses are still weaknesses but ...
    Not sure anyone is offended. Most are pointing out that it's not smart nor something to hang your hat on.

    Not sure if you are talking to me but if we didn't win the west we would have been the 6 seed possibly 7...so where does that put you? For a guy who logged 4 innings this season he could have put positive attention on his teammates instead...but that wouldn't have gotten him any personal attention.

    Not offended, just think you open yourself up to criticism by it.

    If Handsome needs to insult the fans that pay their bills, to win the tourney, so be it.
    I disagree. That was the current picture at the time, not the big picture.

    I NEVER thought we'd miss the conference tournament. That doesn't make me better than anyone. That simply shows some of us saw this team as what it could be.
    Link to that post before March 15?

    I don't remember if I posted it. Are you questioning whether I believed it?

    Actually, I think we agree. I posted in March there was no way we had BA under .200 for the year. That was not possible, but I just had no idea what that meant in terms of the tourney.

    At that time, we were 10th, 11th place, so the tourney was probable, if I had thought about it.

    I had no control, so I gave it little thought. I am usually only thinking about two days ahead anyway

    To the "haven't done anything yet" people..
    His comment was about people saying (and no, it wasn't just a question.. people were actually SAYING they would not make the tournament) they wouldn't make the conference tournament.. Not only did they make it, they won the west. If you want to squabble over percentage points and seeding, that's on you, but YES, they did do something.. something some here were saying they wouldn't do.

    Yea, whatever motivates them! I don't respond,because I've never tweeted a negative comment towards any of them. That's what this board is for; venting, projecting,etc;

    I can promise you the majority of the clubhouse loved the tweet.
    If he was hearing it, everyone was hearing it.

We have seen a team not make our own tourney after going to the CWS the year before...not sure why a team coming off a non post season year and started the way they did is not capable of missing the tourney. It wasn't some obsurd thought. Don't think it shows fight, their "leader" is immature. Wonder how many teams would have the kind of fan support they had all year playing like that. Out of all the things he could have put out there he chose that...must have been working on that tweet all season long.
    It was an absurd thought.. Have you seen UTA, App St, Georgia St, etc etc play? There was no way we were finishing behind those teams. Just wasn't going to happen.

    Btw, I think a grown man calling a 21 year old athlete immature shows more on the grown man than the "immature leader" of a baseball team that has been _____ on by its own fans for 56 games.. Don't you?

    I thought it was possible we miss the tourney we are hosting, I made the comment here. Glad it's turned around and that they keep getting done.

    I kind of like the firey prove people wrong attitude they've taken. Baseball is always so rigid with unwritten rules and such related to showboating, etc. Would I have put the tweet out as a player one Robe's team? Probably not, but, I like the show of passion especially from the injured veteran. Hopefully they channel all that next weekend and win the tournament at home.

    Like a grown man who tweets at 21 year olds?? For a guy who sat in the dugout all year and is supposedly a team leader he had a million other things he could have said...but then again if he said "congrats to my teammates, we never doubted ourselves" wouldn't have people talking about handsome Monica.

    Whatever motivates them! I don't take it personally because of what was stated here on the fan board. This is a fan board, parents and athletes should not read it. Now if someone is out tweeting back to athletes negative comments, well you should have expected this was going to come eventually.

    Btw, his message didn't say "HEY CAJUN FANS..."
    The message encompassed all people saying they wouldn't make the conference tournament.
