Re: What Caused the Losing Streak?

I don't think Sontensei being banned had anything to do with the losing streak, but it will certainly have postseason repercussions.

Re: How old are you?

According to the poll, I have to be in the top five.

I'm 48, just 2 1/2 months away from 49.

I was born just 21 years after the Cubs last World Series appearance.

Re: Fantasy Rants

stupid garbage time touchdowns. I had a 25 point lead on my opponent entering the 4th quarter of MNF in a critical matchup. He had Newton and Benjamin. The only thing that would beat me was likely 2 Newton to Benjamin TDs. Yup that's exactly what happened. Lost by 2. I barely escaped what would hav...

Re: Fantasy Rants

F the Giants. I had a 29 point lead heading into the Sunday night game with Maclin vs the Philly D. No sweat, right? The sack on the final play gave Philly 30 points to just 1 for Maclin. The Giants even tried to give it away a couple of other times in that drive with the sack/fumble and then the sa...

Re: College Football - Week 7 (Oct. 11)

So how good is Iowa. Only B1G team I haven't seen. Assuming IU will lose either way on the road. But they are going to have to win at Iowa, Michigan or Rutgers to get top a bowl game. They are bad. They may have played the crappiest schedule of any major conference team and have struggled against i...

Re: Cubs claim Jacob Turner on waivers per Ralph/Rosenthal

Don't worry guys, out FO will get this done. Even if they have to give up something halfway decent. They won't let Jacob Turner slip through their fingers. There's no reason they should have to give up anything decent. The Marlins have no leverage here. I've seen this from several people, but the M...

Re: 2015 lineup or no?

The overall turnaround in optimism about this team's future over the last week is astonishing. Not that I'm saying it's wrong (it was right all along), it's just amazing how one player's three game stretch enticed it. edit: maybe "overall" should be, "those that weren't previously op...

Re: Javy called up to Cubs

I witnessed a Darwin Barney walk off home run, that's pretty monumental... The game in '07 when they went percentage points ahead of the Brewers for the first time after being down how many ever games it was, it was a walk off HBP or wild pitch. I was at that 2007 game also. We had poor seats, sitt...

Any thoughts on Josh Vitters uncontrolled spiral into oblivion? He was great in 2012 at AAA, then again last year, at least while healthy. How often does the bottom drop out in a guy's third year in the PCL? If anything, I'd expect absurd, video game-esque numbers. Maybe it's mental at this point. ...

Finally a reason to watch a game instead of sitting at the computer refreshing the Minor League thread every five minutes.

Or I'll do both.
