Re: Addison Russell

Do better, Rizzo. i don't know what rizzo's feelings are, but i don't see anything wrong with that quote Besides offering an opinion and then admitting that he has no idea what he's talking about? the problem is the part about the "investigative work" Rizzo should probably just keep his m...

Re: General Other Sports Chit-Chat Thread

The aces only being 96% to win reminds me that a lot of poker odds are not intuitive. How so? The middle pair of Kings could have put together a flush that would have won the hand. The odds of putting together a flush using four board cards, or getting 9-K straight with only the K in hand, is appar...

Re: #MeToo

Yes, and that applies either way. Too many white people have been voting against their better interests for way too long, and I don't see that changing too much when one party is putting out the, "BE AFRAID, WHITE PEOPLE; BE VERY AFRAID," welcome mat for them. Hopefully I'm wrong. Most wh...

Game 6 vs the Dodgers also ended in like 2 hours and 20 minutes which is unheard of in playoff baseball. I didn't even have time to get drunk before the game ended.

It is though. It's been 2 games. Granted, these are going to be the guys that are going to have to get it done in the next 3 years, but they don't have to get it done today. Even still, they have led all but 2 minutes of time so far this year. Right, I get they lost draft picks, but people are acti...

Isn’t he still learning the offense? I would expect him to get more comfortable with reads and knowing exactly where guys are supposed to be as the season goes on. If we haven’t seen a difference by game 8, then yeah, I get the concerns. This. A horsefeathers coaching staff last year plus people ar...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

If the Bears can't beat Seattle this weekend, there is a very good chance they open the season 1-5. They still have 3 garbage teams on the schedule, in AZ, BUF and NYG. This game is big, big, big if they have any hope of contending this season. Would you put Detroit x 2 in the garbage category? I t...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Hopefully it’s just a grade 1 strain for Pedro. Tanaka hurt BOTH his hamstrings running the bases and had a grade 1 and only missed 1 start and Jake last year had a grade 1 and missed only 2 starts (but we built a decent lead over that time, iirc, and maybe it was being extra careful, he did it on ...

Re: 2018 remainder of season injury thread

The only defense I could come up with for Joe is that maybe they told Strop to just stand up there and not swing, and Strop didn't listen? But that doesn't seem very Joe-like. Regardless....DH please. Bases were loaded, why not try to tack on more runs with seal boy? Strop already pitched 1.2 innin...

Also along those lines: a lot of countries have plumbing that can't handle toilet paper or wipes at all, so the practice is to actually have a trash can or waste bin for such things.
