Seriously though, stop trolling.

munch, I was actually on your side at one point in this thread, but really, you have pretty much buried yourself. It's OK to admit your are wrong sometimes.

I'm at work and the video doesn't work here either. It was probably stored in the cache at home from watching it before.

But thanks, everyone, for proving my point by drawing ridiculous conclusions about my actions. Because finding a broken link was obviously my plan all along.

The video existed. Coop said it. It stayed relevant during the offseason. I really could care less if people want to act like it didn't because they have something against me. I feel vindicated.

You said it was a quick 10 second google search.

Just ignore the fact that your "evidence" doesn't even work and it was recorded BEFORE the surgery ever took place. And what did he say? Your link didn't work.

This is painful to read. Those of you expecting a confession, concession or apology from a certain poster clearly aren't going to get one. I vote to move on and revisit Danks' injury status when we get closer to Opening Day.

Hey, have you guys heard that Baseball Prospectus has published its projections for the 2013 season?

Detroit got shafted!



That Cleveland is above us and KC is complete and utter garbage. They have zero pitching.

I can't quite figure out why they're so high on the Indians, either

So, posting a dead link and then giving a summary of what might have been said before the surgery isn't enough for you? Tough crowd.

That's because the whole thing is nonsense. Besides Cleveland sucking, the freaking Mariners are ahead of us? The other three teams in the AL West all made the playoffs last year. They could have won 88 games and still finished in 4th place. They have absolutely zero chance of winning their division, and even if the Athletics stumble (very likely), they'd still be fighting NYY, Chi, TB, BAL, TOR, LAA, TEX for that last spot.

So they disagree with your personal percieved strength between the Sox and M's.

I gotta say, it's somewhat hilarious to have people who earlier in the thread were so adamant that it's impossible to forecast baseball can be so adamant that there's no way the Mariners could be better than the Sox this year. Pretty god damn hilarious.

Even if a person thought the Mariners would be better than the Sox this year, the Sox still have a better chance of making it in. It's common sense. The Sox are pretty solidly in the top two of their division. Most of these "experts" will probably pick the Sox to finish second, and that's probably the most likely outcome. The Mariners are most likely to finish fourth. I'd much rather have to leapfrog one team than three. As for Wild Card possibilities, look at the strengths of the division. The Mariners get the hapless Astros, but they also have to play three playoff teams intra-division. The Sox get the hapless Twins, but also the mediocre Indians and Royals.

This is in the same boat as their win predictions. Baseless predictions. No different than any of us posting our predictions on a website. However, Joe Blow's predictions are presented using nonsensical percentages that give the illusion of accuracy.

All right, so BP doesn't agree with that. You'll notice they have the Sox barely clinging to 3rd. BFD.
