Yuppers. Joe's approval means everything to me. I almost asked Bosio about Arrieta basically saying (On the Dempster show) Bos had no impact on his success last year. Decided not to create division.

I got to ask a question about Baez in cf in the coaches panel. Joe thinks I'm witty. I can die now.

Re: Cubs in Winter Leagues


I just asked Joe a question based on this tweet in the coaching staff panel discussion.bi asked if he thought this tweet was a dare to opposing hitters or a genuine desire to not have the ball hit to him. I made Joe Maddon laugh!

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

I watched every game that year. Moises Alou would NOT have caught that ball. He had trouble catching balls hit right to him. This is the same guy who thought it was better to try to kick a ball deeper into the ivy rather than reach down and pick up the ball and throw it to his cut off man. With tha...

Come August if we have a nice lead in the NL Central I wouldn't be opposed to skipping the occasional Arrieta start.

Re: Levine- Theo Epstein putting Stock in Soler

Considering Sheffield hit 500+ HR, I'll take that from Baez. Sheffield's problem was attitude and I don't see nothing but positives from Baez. yeah unfortunately there's a lot more important things that sheffield was a lot better at than attitude. Have you been paying attention the past 3 years? Th...

Re: Front Office Thread

Cubs hire John Baker as baseball operations assistant. I fully expected the last 2 pages to be about this. Instead we have a discussion about multiple World Series titles. Guess that's about right. John Baker in the front office puts them over the top in their quest for at least 2 WS titles! Better?

Re: Addison Russell is awesome and deserves a thread

So what's a realistic slash line for 2016? Unless Russell cuts down on his Strikeouts I don't see him hitting for a high Average. And during only two months of the season did he show any power. 260/320/400 would be my guess. Russell said he wanted to steal more, so getting around a dozen Stolen Bas...
