I will call bull.
Fine. More sarcasm. I never claimed to know more than Cooper, or that I would be a better pitching coach than him. On the contrary, if you look at my posting history, I doubt you will find a single post where I criticized Cooper. As an outside, admittedly uninformed observer, it seems to me that none of the Sox current starting pitchers has earned "demotion" to the pen just because Danks is healthy.

What I'll never understand is why some people enjoy criticizing others, seemingly just for the hell of it, instead of just focusing on the merit (or lack thereof) of a particular idea.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
