Luis Tiant was the losing pitcher that game. He went 14.1 innings!

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I thought last year that David Bote was going to be our deluxe version Jeff Baker, and was perfectly happy with that. Now I'm beginning to wonder if we lucked into some sort of B+ Justin Turner clone (complete with hideous beard). Bote has more juice in the glove, though even in the rosiest scenari...

Epstein had this to say after signing a five year extension in 2016: In leaving the Red Sox, Epstein quoted football legend Bill Walsh, referencing his belief that coaches and executives shouldn’t spend more than a decade in one job, or else risk burnout or becoming stale. “I don’t know” if this wil...

and i suppose for the record i should clarify i don't think he's the missing piece in the cubs not getting harper. but it wouldn't surprise me for the front office to let him know his name is being floated about if it meant they felt the roster as a whole would be updated. he was very mature about ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

So if the Cubs traded their entire roster to the White Sox for their entire roster, what do we do? I mean, you realize that the 2019 Cubs team is not the same as the, say, 1996 Cubs team, right? How are you even just horsefeathering this up? No, I get it. I'm just not compartmentalizing the "c...

ROFL Trump is so horsefeathering stupid. In his announcement of a National Emergency he said he "didn't need to" declare an emergency, he just wanted to "do it much faster". Gee I wonder if that'll be brought up on court. So horsefeathering dumb. The man has no filter. He can't ...

My wife and I normally owe about $4000. This year we got a $6000 refund. Standard deduction, no kids, rent instead of own. My wife got sick so that dropped us a bracket. The main culprit is that i kept my withholdings at the old rates. That said, the tax bill didn’t solve any of the country’s probl...
