No, I dismissed it, which is not the same thing. If folks are going to have an obsessive fixation with a player - and they will, no matter how much you cry about it - better that it be a player who does so much more for the team.

I get not liking the Umberger Fan Club, but let's not claim his market value should be lower 'cause it comes with a fanbase you dislike.
