Re: The Politics Thread

[quote="Sammy Sofa"][expletive], Trump is the only candidate I think Sanders would even have a chance against; there's still almost no chance Trump gets the nomination, so I'd be much more worried about the Republicans running a relatively "normal" politician a la Rubio or even C...

Having lived through the 85 Cubs I really want the Cubs to get some more starting rotation depth. I would like to see them do some minor league trades for guys who could step in at the MLB level if need be.

Re: Ricketts discusses extension for Theo, how much is he worth in your opinion?

I think Theo's ego is big enough that he will want to be in the same ranges as the highest paid executives in sports. He can go anywhere.

Edit: if I were him I'd ask for an ownership stake.

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

I could totally see the Cubs trading Schwarber in the future. It's all fun and games now, slap on some Benny Hill music whenever he's running, defending, or facing a lefty, but eventually that new shine will wear off. Could be Soler and not Schwarber, but I think one of them is gone for a pitcher b...
