Wow. In reading the comments section of the Kenny article, I’m reminded why, though I often disagree, I come to this site to read baseball discussions. Trolls abound everywhere, but the tenacity to fundamental aspects of productive discussions is far higher here than the majority of sites elsewhere. Kudos to the posters and patrons of this site for establishing that standard and continuing the fight for it.

Brian Kenny deserves some sort of Baseball Nobel Peace award for writing that on MLB.com. The comments section FLIPPED shit. They all then had the same dumb arguments he squashed in the article.
