Absolutely. It’s just laughable to me that they think his defense would be a positive in any way.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Saw some Cards fans griping on Twitter that an announcer said Javy has the edge in the MVP race because he plays 3 positions. They argued “so does Carpenter”. It amazes me that they think Carpenters defense at 1st, 2nd and 3rd is even in the same stratosphere as Javy at 2nd, 3rd, and SS.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

I don’t know why but I get especially pissed at Cub fans who think Harper will break the Rickett’s pocketbook. They horsefeathering own entire city blocks and a billion dollar company that is not the Chicago Cubs in addition to owning the Chicago Cubs who are worth a billion dollars x3. The only th...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Reds got a decent return from the Braves for Adam Duvall. Get Lucas Sims Matt Wisler and Preston Tucker In like 2013 when those guys were real prospects, maybe. Haven’t they all flamed out pretty much?? Maybe, but Duvall has been awful this year and doesn’t have a place in their OF. Taking a chance...

Re: The Cardinals

On a side note, not that it would ever happen. But if the Cards were willing to take Heyward back with his current contract if the Cubs took Dex back with his current contract, who says no first? Would anyone on this board make that trade? The Cubs say no first. And very quickly. Heyward might not ...

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

This morning I’m reading that a Kawhi trade is all but impossible at this point. The Lakers are over the cap, so any trade needs to be dollar for dollar. How do the Lakers line that up? The same way most trades occur in the NBA They before the lakers signed those one-year deals with Stephenson et a...

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."

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.

Gotta be a touchback since it would have been a fumble recovered in the endzone.
