    No, I either enjoy it or I don't give a ****. I certainly wouldn't want a knuckle dragger to come out and white knight for me.

    Whatever happens, just keep that sig up hero!
    It has not softened and I'm not wrong. Most of the story there is true but you're leaving out the more important parts.

    Youíve thrown your lot in with the dumbest of the dumb...clvderp and crazytwit. Well done.

    Youíre incredibly stupid, and the worst kind of forum poster: aggressively argumentative despite all your points coming from a position of extreme ignorance due to your 6th grade reading level and even worse mathematics skills.

    The three of you form the Trio of Truculent Twits.

    A proud bunch indeed!

    ToTT assseemmmmmbbbbblllllle!! Derrmel, clvderp, and crazytwit.

    Just keep that sig up as you promised hero!

    LOL! When you and your brown-nosers think I'm stupid I take it as a compliment. It means I'm doing something right.

So they were both arguing from the premise of the Braves having a below .500 record. As soon as the premise is proven wrong, the conclusions drawn from the premise are basically meaningless.
    My prediction after the good start was that the Braves would hold the previous yearís attendance if they stayed in the playoff race.

    The counter prediction was that they would not.

    Doesnít have to be super personal. It wasnít a big pissing contest, became more of a curiousity.

    Iíd prefer that third parties donít screw it up trying to revise it otherwise though.

    As the other party to the debate being discussed, which of the following statements would you say is true?

    1. Iím lying about the discussion in my explanation above.
    2. Garmel doesnít understand what was discussed, and is wrong.

    Absolutely. The "targets" just change periodically.
    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though. (2017 Draft Thread)

    If they don't make additions they can expect the same 3-5 win improvement they saw last year. That makes the Braves a 75-78 win team. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    You were the "counter prediction" that said they would not increase. That means you were wrong. Your lying is denying the simple fact that you were wrong. It's not rocket science. You have tried your damnedest to twist these two very simple facts.

    Love the information and discussion. Hate the "I have to be right, and you have to be an idiot..." Can we respectfully disagree, or do we have to turn every thread into "I am the smartest one here, and I have to prove it by making you look stupid?"

    Really wonder what the holdup in Angels' signings is all about. With obvious holes at 3B, C, Closer, and of course in the rotation and only $138 million committed to non-renewal/minimum guys, what gives? They usually flirt with the luxury tax number, so they've got roughly $60 million to spend. Is there really any reason that they're not squarely in the middle of Kimbrel/Keuchel/Grandal/Moustakas rumors? If they think Adell will be ready to replace Calhoun in 2020 and Canning will be ready to replace one of Harvey/Cahill in 2020, isn't this the time you want to push all-in and try to get to the playoffs if you hope to re-sign Trout when his deal is up? If you let Calhoun, Harvey, and Cahill walk next winter, you clear ~$30 million.

    Itís hard to find old posts now that the search wonít go farther back than 1 month, but hereís the thread that corroborates the second half of my explanation:

    http://www.chopcountry.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8089

    This is about 1ímonth into the season and I see a lot of me talking about how great flat or increased attendance is. Exactly as I described a few posts up.

    I see zero arguing, or backpedaling, or anyone calling me out for being wrong.

    If I get some more time later Iíll dig up more posts that show I was talking about attendance as it pertained to payroll projections.

    LOL! Dig up the posts that came a few weeks before this one. As I've said on an earlier post you were argumentative until Southcack proved you wrong. You were the "counter prediction" until Southcack won you over.
