Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Man this rollout has been an absolute disaster. It would be magnificent if this somehow completely blew up in their faces. Networks and providers have engaged in stare down tactics since the advent of cable TV. This is not surprising. Marquee managers should have streamed the network online for a f...

New MLB Playoff proposal... Crazy good or bad?

https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb-playoff-overhaul-opponent-selection-reality-tv-225017615.html

14 teams instead of 10. Best record in each league gets a first round bye. Division winners get to pick their first round opponents.

Wild!

Re: Politics & Current Events

Anecdotally speaking, my guess is 90% of the sound bites from Trump that make local and network news are absolutely worthless to the story. The garbage that comes out of his mouth is not worth the air time.

Re: NFL Playoffs: Wildcard Round

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like from the outset, Rodgers has looked like he'd rather be on a beach with Danica on his side reading State Farm scripts than playing an NFL playoff game.

I am glad Kaplan isn't going to be a part of it. Also, David DeJesus seems like a nice guy, and he has improved some from how comically bad he was when he first started, but that is a prime opportunity for an upgrade too. Definitely want Kelly Crull to be a part of it. kelly is an nbc sports chicag...

I was bored and ultimately wound up at Lester Strode’s Wikipedia page. This was the final sentence: Despite being one of the few openly black bullpen coaches in the league, Strode is not believed to be a managerial candidate for the team.

I think we are weeks, if not days away from Trump negotiating a resignation where he and his family get away with everything. At least he will no longer be President. His people will be going to jail though because Trump doesn't give a rat's ass about others. The absolute highest profile person who...
