They are.  The amount of music and noise in the stands during games is the worst I have ever heard.  I don't even like going there anymore.  Machestah is better and I am looking forward to the Red Sox AAA team moving to Woostah.  

For the same reasons I don’t like  to attend Greensboro Grasshoppers home games anymore. Between every single pitch there is some annoying noise out of the PA...the whole freaking game. It is like everyone in the stands is 5 years old and needs to be entertained constantly.

Tytus Tiger

He was a nice guy who posted way too many of his hand drawn gifs which got annoying.  I recall that he left because he was sensitive about people criticizing his artwork.

Biff or someone has got to have a copy of the photo Yoda made with a blowup doll thrown across this bed. OMG, this is a 17 page thread!  I haven’t scrolled all the way through it but I bet that photo is embedded in here.  I can’t believe all those names I never see anymore around here.  It really makes me nostalgic.

You're only happy because you're alive to miss them.

This thread is just insane.  It unlocks the pulse of the people who used to inhabit this place.  I don’t like to feel as if I were the Grinch, but like him my heart has grown three sizes today.

Very nice. RIP. 

Brian was such a great poster here. He knew so much about everything. The thread asking him to check in on that day is haunting. 

The thing that seems to stand out the most about him is that he would engage with anyone, and he always did so in a respectful manner, even if he was telling you how wrong you were.

Sorry to be the bubble buster here, but this is not anywhere close to true. There was a time when we had to create a separate forum for minor league discussion because he and Edman were such huge pricks to the minor league fans who were casual fans and not statheads.

Well, then maybe not everyone. Those minor league folks at the time were an interesting bunch, and if I remember correctly were incredibly irrational and couldn’t handle hearing that their boys weren’t actually good at professional baseball.

To the extent he acted like a dick to a particular subset of folks, I just don’t remember that. I’ll defer to your recollection. But I did spend a couple minutes going back to try and find something like that. I couldn’t find it, but I did find this thread, which is pretty much the type of thing I was referencing. He seemed to put a lot of thought and consideration into his posts, acknowledging the other person’s position, and providing good reasoning for his disagreement.

When I just signed in and saw this Title the first two that came to my mind were Estrepe1 and Huey.

My recall is that there were two sides to that.  Some of those minor league fans were unreasonable and a few would bait people like Edman and Estrepe into fights.  Edman is one of my favorite internet friends, but he can be a kind of a ***** sometimes and he admits to it.  I don't ever remember Estrepe being a ***** to anyone.

I remember when Yoda posed as Dave Dombrowski for a live chat.  He had Dave’s willful evasiveness nailed down perfectly. 

That never happened.

I realize it is a sacrilege, but some of the stuff Huey wrote turned me off to him.

His pictures were awesome.

Nah I agree with that part too, more so for his Pictures and pure Lakeland information.
