Re: Dexter Fowler

Yeah I think Soler's upside is high enough to give him the starting RF spot. If he hits well the Cubs can maximize his trade value at the deadline to improve the team if a better defensive/OBP fit is desired or keep him. If he hits like last year the Cubs still have more than enough assets to swing ...

I was mad that the CSN camera didn't capture the interaction between the 2 when Martinez was going down the line greeting the former Cubs.

Re: 2015-2016 college basketball

But for reals on MSU, are they good? I haven't seen them outside of the 2 games with Iowa. They are really good but I don't think Valentine is 100% yet and they clearly aren't the same team without him at his best. All that said, Iowa looks really good and I am not looking forward to the potential ...

Re: 2015-16 Blackhawks season

So Kane has 14 more points than the 2nd place guy (Benn), 2 more goals than 2nd place guy (Ovechkin), 3 assists than the 2nd place guy (Karlsson).

Also leads the league in PP goals, and is in the top 5 in +/-

Head and shoulders above everyone else right now.

Re: 2016 Cubs Convention Info

I think the only player on the likely 25 man that wasn't there was Coghlan. Wonder if he's upset that his unexpectedly productive year was rewarded with a spot on the bench. I remember him grumbling a little bit at the end of the season

Re: 2015-2016 Chicago Bulls season

I've resigned myself to the fact that Chicago is just not a preferred NBA FA destination for the top end guys. Unless they get really lucky and somehow none of the more highly regarded warm weather cities don't have cap space, I have a hard time seeing them winning out on the very tip top guys unle...

Re: 2015-2016 Chicago Bulls season

Can't wait for Derricks salary to clear. Get Jimmy some [expletive] help. Why wait? Sign someone this offseason. They'll have the money. So will like 20 others teams. Have to sell coveted FAs that Chicago is the best situation for them. Not saying it's not a good destination just that there will be...

Re: 2016 hype!

Concerns about a rotation that I believe is projected to have one of the highest WARs in baseball. As far as innings, Jake is the only one I'm slightly worried about given his significant increase last year. But even a 10% worse Jake is like a top 10 starter. Lester and Lackey have already made thei...

Re: 2015-16 Blackhawks season

yeah what a shock, this team is really good again When you have 2 of the top 5 players on Earth and evaluate talent well, it's going to be hard to be anything less. I've only seen them a couple times this year, but I think they are more explosive than they may have ever been. At times, yes, but the...

Uhhhh, that seems like a LOT of weight to lose in less than 3 months (and over the holidays, too), especially for a guy that really didn't seem he needed to lose much at all. That worries me a bit.
