Re: Jason Heyward - 2016 CF?

NSBB wasn't loading for me for a few minutes and I was convinced the Cubs signed Heyward and the board crashed.

Jesse Rogers is currently tweeting a lot of semi-coherent things about the Cubs being interested in Heyward.

Re: Shark Thread

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2015/12/01/levine-second-tier-will-work-for-cubs-pitching-needs/ The consensus is that Jeff Samardzija, under the guidance of Cubs pitching coach and mentor Chris Bosio, could return to his old form. What would be expected would be a 200 inning 200 strikeout number three...

Re: Today's wish list...

It is bad when someone asks a good question as I did, and get replies like the one just above. Shows real talent to write garbage. Thanks. So some think Heyward can be the leadoff hitter. If you like a K man as leadoff hitter, fine, but I don't. Frankly, I would rather have Denier back, or Lou Broc...

Re: 2015-2016 college basketball

What's up with the Illini? They are probably not that good, but both teams they lost two are tourney quality teams and the Providence game was on the road. Yep. They've been dealing with some injuries too. No Nunn yet, Black missed the first game, Tate is out, Abrams is out for the year, so they've...

Re: ESPN MLB Future Power Rankings - Cubs in a Landslide

Yeah, it's probably a combination of a lot of top prospects moving up to the majors in 2015, and Law just being particularly high on the Cubs system. I'd be surprised if the Cubs were consistently this high across publications, but given how high Law seems to have been on some of the Cubs prospects ...

Re: ESPN MLB Future Power Rankings - Cubs in a Landslide

I know there's been some discussion around here in the last week or two about where the Cubs farm system would rank this offseason, so I thought it worth mentioning that only the Red Sox received a higher minors grade than the Cubs. Of course, that's just one guy's ranking, but it appears that Law i...

There's literally no chance Black or Garner take his place and actually, neither has looked good in the AFL . This is based on what? Your eye test?

Thoughts on this season of Last Man on Earth so far?

Where is the celebrity stuff coming from? I remember the possibility being thrown out there a really long time ago, and then it was tabled. (I believe there was a rumor of Bill Murray being approached.) Has there been more on this recently?

Re: 2014 NSBB Cubs Top 50 Prospects

While you're right, I think that we could find a solid deal by dealing some depth away. This isn't "depth" like we tried to find deals with back in 2010, it's higher upside types, with some solid floor mixed in. That said, I still think you're selling it short a bit. While I too am having...
