Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

KB was hurt, so this thread somehow fell to the second page on active topics. He came back and did awesome stuff so I felt like it needed to be bumped.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Joe will use 7 different lead off guys in the first week and a half in September after we clinch the division in August and the whole roster goes on a bender with Theo.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

More necessary predictions and a little backtracking: - Even then I should just go with Forrest Whitley, always forget that guy due to some tunnel vision. - hopefully Honeywell just off the top Whitley is suspended for 50 games (as discussed in this thread) and Honeywell is having TJ (as discussed ...

Re: The Cubs are a Finalist for Shohei Ohtani

Well, that stinks but i guess it’s not going going to affect the Cubs much. Glad it’s not the Dodgers if it’s not us.

Re: The Cubs are a Finalist for Shohei Ohtani

I think they should lead with "Javy already knows your name, and he hasn't bothered to learn the names of half the guys in the organization. In fact, he just called John Mallee "bat guy" the entire time he was here, and he was one of our coaches."

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Or they punt on this mediocre class and look at 2019 (Melo, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker) And if they don't have an AS, oh well. Is it really that big of a deal? Ideally you'd like one when you host but its happened before (Denver in 2005, Atlanta in 2003) Is there another melo or is the famous one ...

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

I don’t like how this played out, it sucks, but let’s not pretend like Simeon was sending us the Rose and Parker’s of the world. And I would think we’d get credit for not only taking, but allowing Jaylon Tate four years at a big ten school. The Simeon thing was pretty much secondary. Taking away a ...

Hard to hold too much against him when the QB situation is so bad. Unless you want to be upset about not pursuing a 5th year qb, which I think has some merit.
