A short plea for sanity

Good afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,

Please remember when posting that we're all baseball fans to varying degrees. No matter which team we root for, we're all here to read and write about the Boston Red Sox and their rivals du jour.

Not everyone is going to be a statistical genius, nor will they necessarily share your opinion. Refrain from insults (that includes calling another a "troll"), and teach those who are more junior in their fandom. There is no right and wrong with regard to someone's opinion, as evidenced by the fact that Bill Bavasi still has a job in MLB.

There are rules of conduct for this blog, but it isn't Seseme Street. Give each other the benefit of the doubt and a little latitude. Most of us are adults.

Lastly, please take the time to add basic formatting to your comments and diaries. Paragraphs and punctuation make them infinity easier to read.

And remember: Manny's happy; you should be, too.

Manny Ramirez, future hall of famer and American Citizen
