Re: The Dempster Trade Thread

He's beyond due to have a bad start. With the possibility of that and also the injury chance, the only reason this isn't getting done is because the offers must be horrible. You'd think a team would want him making this start for them, with as close as the races are. I suppose there's still a shot ...

Re: The Dempster Trade Thread

I've got to assume it's a bluff. There's no way Theo is dumb enough to risk injury or a bad game from Dempster when there are offers on the table. Holy [expletive]. Hah, yeah, I'm still around.

Re: The Dempster Trade Thread

Thanks guys!

And yeah, I'd love to see a mini bidding war get started here. If it drives up the price a little, great. I just don't want to see Dempster on the mound tonight. It would be just far too Cub-like to watch him get hit in the arm with a liner.

Well hello there. Long time, no see. Anywho, I've got a question for you all. I'm currently working on an article and I'm trying to find some minor league statistics - and I'm having a hell of a time finding them. Baseball-reference has some very basic statistics, but even their minor league stats a...

I think it's really stupid that all they did was add los or el to the team names.

Re: Anyone here a Wrigley Field Ambassador?

I rose from the dead. I'm special.

I still browse around but don't post much..

Anyway, I'm still working at Wrigley - not as an ambassador though. That position was new as of last year. If you have any questions you can feel free to PM me and I'll try to answer what I can.

How are they gonna fit a soccer field at Wrigley if they couldnt fit a football field? Isn't it longer and wider? Yeah, this isn't happening. Wrigley is way too small to fit a proper field onto. It barely fit the football field. Aren't the dimensions of soccer fields somewhat negotiable? I was post...

Re: Waiver TE question, Week 14

Went with Celek. Unless things turn around in the 2nd half, looks like I should have went with Hernandez. oh well. I may still win, but either way the person I needed to lose did, so I'm in the playoffs anyway.
