I blame Nutting for the NL's failure to produce a "winner" for 12 straight years. The longest losing streak in All Star history.

I think you are correct ... he had his GM trade Jason Bay, Xavier Nady, and Damaso Marte to the AL!

FC and NH are just not spending enough on the payroll for the National League team.
If they just up'ed the payroll they would be competitive and not lose 13 straight years.
Nutting is just pocketing the profits from the ASG instead of spending it on the roster to
beat the AL. :roll: :lol:
If he doen't start spending I'm walking and going to belly ache about it for 17 17 17 17 17 17 YEARS!!!! :twisted:

Welcome to the Sarcasm Society
There is nothing more beautiful than sarcasm. That is definitely an overstatement but it should balance the moronic comment which says that sarcasm is the lowest form of humor. Now, whoever made that statement was desperately in need of a rectal broomstick extraction procedure.

Sarcasm usually requires a quick wit, and the ability to extract the minutest points of weakness in a conversation. So it is quite unlikely that it is the lowest form of humor as some would like to call it. Perhaps not being able to enjoy sarcasm is directly related to not having the ability to come up with sarcastic comments, which in turn creates a feeling of inadequacy, which in turn can spawn a Napoleon complex, that can cause someone to logicise that sarcasm is the humor of the stupid.

The problem with sarcasm in general, and I am not necessarily slamming anyone here :lol: , is that those who make ridiculous statements that are in turn the subject of some good sarcasm, are more often than not, not smart enough to know it was a sarcastic remark about their statement!

Well, that's not so much a problem as it is a reason to chuckle yet again.

Well I tend to be on the sarcastic side and I think many posters in here dont take to it very well because....

I believe that was a comment made by a character in "Catcher in the Rye." I believe that the comment was directed at Holden Caulfield, who employed sarcasm unceasingly.
