Aaron Boone Evaluation Survey: June 17th, 2019


  1. RetroRob

    Erik Kratz has returned??!! It’s “significant” moves like this when I miss RAB.

    • Robinson Tilapia


      Yeah. They signed him to an MiLB the moment he got cut by the Padres, Giants, or whoever the heck he was playing for.

      I miss RAB. I do miss an actual community as well.

      • Steven Tydings

        Yah, they signed him when Ryan Lavarnway got hurt (he’s on the 7-day IL) and Kratz was released by the Rays. He’s only started a few games for Scranton-WB thus far.

        • RetroRob

          Thanks. That’s probably why I missed the announcement. He hasn’t played much.

  2. Robinson Tilapia

    My God, I cannot wait to get these two back.

    • Your a Looser Trader FotD

      My man! Good to see you R-Tils. And totally agreed.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Hey bud. Hope you’re doing well. Slim pickings, commentingwise, at this point.

        • RetroRob

          What happened to the channel? I stepped away for a week and something…happened.

          • Robinson Tilapia

            Apparently, there was a fight over BRYAN, of all people. Half the group hacked the other half, a second was formed and…….I honestly don’t care. We need something better, without half the people being moderators.

        • RetroRob

          Bryan? Ha. He never bothered me, but I have to say the whole teen boy (be it real age or emotional age) mentality that overtook the group at times was a bit tiresome.

          • It’s not from a lack of trying. We have finally exorcised ourselves of them.

            The slack got deleted. Please email me as soon as you can. We miss your presence…
