If you read the entire thread you will see that my first response was that I have nothing to do with bats so all of my posts were simply my opinion and with "DW" in the title I was specifically being asked the question so I felt obligated to answer. I wish I had not answered. I did talk to Blo and AJ on the phone today about the situation.
Most people in softball eventually dislike me because if they are in upper level softball long enough at some point something is posted on oldscout they don't like, or things I write in tournament reports they get upset about, or classification of them as players or their team they don't agree with, or comments I make about bats etc.
I guess its just part of it.
From my perspective I try to be open and honest, answer questions, promote the game, but eventually everyone in the game falls on what they feel is on the wrong side of a comment I make, a report I write, a classification decision that is made etc so they dislike me for it...
It is what it is. Part of the job. It's like I tell my kids "It isn't my job to be your friend".
