Wishing for someone's death is not funny and I don't care what the context might be. If you wish to "spice up" a boring forum conversation by suggesting that someone put a bullet in someone's head, well I don't quite know how to react. I have a sense of humor and a truly funny comment is always welcome. I fail to see the humor of such comments.
    Purposely or not, you're not understandng how humor works. It's not literal. When someone has a long day at work and comes home to say "Man, I'm gonna jump off a bridge" you're implying we should all react as if he/she is suicidal and must be taken to Bellvue for observation. It's exaggeration, hyperbole, etc. for effect.

    Again, he isn't wishing for Kozma's death as I already said in my last post. Are you really not getting this? You're a smart guy, come on now. I'm guessing you're just not a fan of his humor because even a kid can recognize he isn't actually advocating for Kozma's murder. This is silly.

    What's it to you?

    I think sticking with genital mutilation would be a better choice than threats of murder, but that's just me

    This is absolutely not allowed, and even if it was, it's in very poor taste. Watch how you word things.

    I honestly can't believe you are weighing in on this. Where were you when a poster calls someone else a douche and tells them to 'shut their mouth?'

    This was just an innocent exaggeration/expression. God damn. If I had said, 'Put a fork in Kozma' That doesn't mean I want someone to stab Kozma with a fork.

    I wrote that Kozma should be slingshot to the moon yesterday. I wonder if that's allowed.

    Could be but he has a YS swing. Something has to give though. Way to many prospects in the OF. The R5 could be a bloodbath ..

    No, we're not allowed to say anything meanie meanie on this board because there are apparently way too many overly sensitive adults on this forum.

    i think we gotta look at observed batspeed as a function of approach and ability.

    you want to see batspeed become a weapon in terms of letting the player adjust and react to late movement, or give himself more time before swinging.

    if observed batspeed is high because the guy is taking a longer swing path to generate that speed, or he swings too hard and unbalanced, then that's not a plus.

    Need to move some of them, plain and simple. Trade them for guys not subject to the draft for 2-3 years.
