I don't know why, honestly, and I worry sometimes that the chat invites "dislike," and I don't think that Ozuna faces it any more than some of the other favorite targets in the chat. Some of the questions you don't see about Fowler and others are ... not polite. So, I delete them, and try to unsee them. It could be just the nature of these things, right? The very notion of asking questions implies there is something wrong, otherwise why ask questions -- just enjoy. We invite questions via chat because they're important, but we also invite something of a petri dish for anger, and it grows like mold depending on the day. If I could figure out a way to improve it, I would. Trust me. I know I lapse into the frustration true, but I do my best to combat it by a) deleting the questions that are the worst or b) if they persist, responding abruptly, succinctly, and bluntly.
Do we need to go around the block with the Yelich thing again? Getting Yelich would have required patience to not get Yelich, because the Cardinals were rebuffed when they tried. They were told by the Marlins that they did not intend to trade Yelich. Yelich was told by the Marlins that they didn't intend to trade Yelich. And then they did. The Cardinals never had the crack -- and it was not for lack of asking. They preferred Yelich of the three, were braced to make their biggest offer for Yelich of the three, and -- news flash -- had tried to trade for him before, at least tried to engage the Marlins in conversation about him before. No luck then, either.
