Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

the regular season all out dominance of 08 overshadows the mostly boring/mediocre regular season (at least until september) + playoff wins in 03 for me. 2015 has both on the backs of a core of great young players so that's why it's a clear #1.

Re: 2016 Cubs Convention Info

I know getting any sort of juicy info from Theo would probably be tough, but I'm curious about his draft philosophy. All four of his Cub drafts the first round selection has been used on a positional player, with many of the next several picks being used on pitching. Based on this track record I'm ...

Re: 2016 Chicago Bears Offseason Thread

I'm OK with this. We knew if Gase proved he was worth keeping with the Bears that he would be gone after a year anyway. Loggains provides some continuity, which is key and he does have OC experience. That was the same argument for Tice, sans the OC experience for Loggains which I don't find all tha...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

btw I don't look back all that fondly on 2004...aside from maybe the Nomar trade day, the Sosa/Alou back to back game and the Walker slide. but overall that season sucked. i remember it as a lot of waiting for prior to come back and actually look like prior, the cardinals getting off to an insurmou...

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

mojo's campaign to trade the cubs' 22 year old all time leader in postseason home runs (i realize this doesn't mean anything other than being a fun way to describe him and the awesome stuff he just did) is one of the weirder things i've seen around here lately for a lot of reasons

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

With the seeming lack of market for hitters this offseason, does Fowler come back to the Cubs? We know they offered him a 2 year deal this offseason but he wanted more years. With guys like Gordon,Cespedes and Upton struggling to get 4 or 5 year deals, things can't be looking good for Fowler. I'd t...

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

To be fair, there probably aren't a whole lot of people outside of the KC metro area that give a [expletive] about the Royals. They won the friggin WS, and I'd struggle to name 5 players. Can you name 5 players from any non-Cub (or Cub between 2009-2014) team? I would think just about anyone here c...

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

Ahh good stuff. Guess I shouldn't be too happy for the cute little Royals anymore after 2 pennants and a title, but its good to see them able to re-sign their key free agents and keep their team going strong. Is Gordon really that key to them? He seems more like a nice guy to have around to a disin...

Re: Baseball Gif Thread

i never had much of a connection with jr. i think a combination of how i didn't get into the game until 95 and i almost entirely ignored the AL (and anyone other than the cubs) outside of being aware of all those yankee players making the world series every damn year
