True, he's a huge injury risk. But there's a Blackhawks thread at the top of the active threads and I'm digging for an idea to keep this party alive. It seems like the Cubs are well equipped to take the risk if they want to. They've got short stops who can step in if Tulo gets hurt, and they've got...

I ended up getting 4 lawn, but I'm not really that big of a Foo fan. I liked their first album a lot when I was 12. I also still really like "Everlong".

The rest would have to come with a lesser 2nd piece. Bryant is potentially too good to trade. I don't see any s...
