Re: The Rams don't like St Louis

There are more Ontario and Ohio license plates in Georgia than Georgia license plates. At least on the Interstates that lead to Florida.

Re: The Rams don't like St Louis

All the Rams fans saying the fix has been on for 20 years. Of course it couldn't be because they're awful fans. I was middle school age when the Rams were winning and going to Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs. I grew up in the St Louis area and then went to college at Mizzou. With all those ...

Re: NFL Wild Card Weekend

I hate the Seahawks and Vikings so much. I'm glad that one of them got their heart ripped out instead of being let down easy.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

That Prior game at the end of 2004 was infuriating to watch. 9.0 IP 3 H 1 ER 16 K 1 BB Cubs lose 1-0 in extras. 2-1. Sammy homered. Austin Kearns homered in the 7th or 8th I believe off the foul pole. Then some really stupid stuff happened in the (I think) 12th. I was in the left field bleachers. I...

Re: Schwarber's Position

Is there a scenario where we send Schwarber back to AAA for the majority of 2016 so he can catch every day? If not, it seems like some team out there would way overvalue him at this point and we should seriously consider moving him. I love him, but if he is more valuable to other teams than he is to...

Re: Who's that guy?

The way we pieced the bullpen together this last year and the total number of guys that were temporarily with the team I'm pretty sure 2 years from now I'll look at the roster and think "he was on that team?" for at least 5 different guys.

On the social anxiety. My roommate's friend in college was from KC. When Greinke was with the Royals this guy saw him at a mall and went up to say hi. Greinke almost immediately asked for his phone number and asked him if he would be his friend. This guy was a huge Royals fan, but the way Greinke as...

Re: season ticket wait list.....

According to the Cubs’ data, the average ticket price increased more than 20 percent from 2014 to 2015 on the secondary market. Well, that is one way to spin it, but tickets were still selling largely under face value on the secondary market. I don't think many people are making money on regular se...
