Clearwater Threshers Recap – 7/9/2018

Oops, I did it again.  Sorry, but I’ve wrenched my back again.  It is very uncomfortable sitting at the computer.  I’m spending most of the day on my back.  Hopefully, this will only last a couple days like last time.

The Clearwater Threshers (42-43) lost to Dunedin, 7-0.  Adonis Medina (8-3, 4.92) gave up all 7 runs on 7 hits and 2 HR.  Blake Quinn and Alberto Tirado tossed a combined 5.1 shutout innings in relief.  

Haseley, Moniak, Lartigue, and Lino had the only base hits for the Threshers. Continue reading Clearwater Threshers Recap – 7/9/2018

Open Discussion: Week of July 8, 2018

The Phillies are 49-38 after a 4-1 week against the Orioles and Pirates.  They have taken over first place in the division, and been there for 3 days, now.

The Phils continue their road trip with a four game series at the Mets, a single game in Baltimore, and three games in Miami before the All Star break.

Drew Anderson made his first Phillies start Sunday, and Enyel De Los Santos may make his Phillies’ debut as early as Tuesday.

This is the Phuture Phillies Open Discussion for baseball topics.

“In non-baseball news, we have a troll among us.  One of our long-time readers has started trolling people here.  He has used over a dozen aliases and several bogus e-mail accounts.

His trolling has caused another long-time reader to change his online name and avatar.  He has responded to comments as billy, bravos, bud, gary, hive, j, John Costello, Kim Baptiste, mark, Marilyn Monroe, rmo, Romus, ted, tim, Tim’s Brother, and a couple more.  

You will notice that he is not above using someone else’s handle when trolling.  I don’t canvass comments in the open discussion as closely as I used to.  I DO check new users and if I deem their comments questionable, I’ll check into their background.  On a few occasions, I have blocked new users who appear trollish.  

So, what do you want me to do about our own internal troll?  I blocked two of his aliases but unblocked them when I realized who it was.  But, with this many aliases in the last year and his propensity to use another’s name, I will handle him as you wish.  This is your community, how should I handle this?”
