A Competitor Website's Baseball Opinion Is IRRELEVANT So Stop Sending Me Their Shit

I take anything Dan Katz says in the blogging realm as gospel.  He has a rule for us “don’t punch down” when getting into internet beefs.  No pun intended to a popular term on Red Line Radio.

I do not want to ever be the reason a certain website (you all know which website I’m talking about) writes a take down piece on Barstool. It just ain’t worth it.  I’m not a mud guy.  So me engaging them in an internet matching of wits would be breaking that rule.

Truth be told, I used to think this website used to be great.  It was a great blend of funny/smart/edgy, all that good stuff.  The pre lenay kekua years.  It was a top of the rotation arm in my internet pitching staff.  But then it went by way of Kenny Powers and lost about 12 MPH on its internet fastball.  We don’t have to go into reasons why, but it did.

Anyways, Sox fans are begging me to write about them because they always trash the Sox.  I never really cared when they did before, because (if I’m not mistaken) one of their staffers is a Sox fan and truth be told, I did think it was kinda funny when they’d acknowledge a Yolmer Sanchez arbitration hearing or some other piece of useless, obscure White Sox news.

Then they had this last week:

And they got roasted by the internet for such a bull shit headline and subsequent article.  White Sox players were also pissed:

And our loyal followers were begging me to engage them.  I resisted for a solid week or so, but finally decided that enough was enough, that they had to be banned:

And if you didn’t know, my banned list is forever and always.  So from now when the Sox win about a half dozen World Series titles over the next year, they are not allowed to mention their names.

But then last night they wrote this article:

Now the thesis of the article is true.  I don’t disagree with any of it.  But they’re #banned, so they’re not allowed to mention the White Sox anymore.  Remember?

The whole purpose of this blog is to tell people to stop sending me shit that that website writes about the Sox.  I don’t care what they have to say.  Because not long ago, they wrote this article about Tyler Flowers calling for a bean ball because he pointed at the hitter… no dumb fuck it’s call an inside fastball.

Seriously, read it.  Give them their coveted clicks and laugh your internet tits off.  The fact that that got published truly is mind bottling.

So, please stop sending me their shit when they shit talk the Sox.  I don’t care.  This is the one and only time I will ever acknowledge their existence.
