We've all seen what has happened on this board and it would be a very cowardly thing of me if I couldn't admit that I played a part in it. Hell I was the ring leader in stirring up all of this nonsense. I originally started out with subtle jabs towards a certain person but over a course of time things got far less subtle until everything finally exploded. I would mock this person, constantly criticize him, call him unkind names, wish for unfortunate things to happen to him, and even questioned his sexuality and character several times. While I was not alone in the attacking of this individual, I feel like I was the ring leader and that I even encouraged others to be more vocal towards that person. For my responsibility in the shitting on him, I feel I owe Andre Ethier a huge apology. I'm sorry Ethier, I let my dislike of your previous play blind me so much that I made this somewhat personal and would shout to anybody who would listen to let them no you sucked and would never be any good for us again. You have been instrumental for maintaining the huge amount of success that we have enjoyed since the big turn around. Your bat has played so well in CF to go along with much improved defense from the previous owner of that position, Matt Kemp, that I honestly do not want to trade you anymore. Keep kicking ass Dre.
