If I remember correctly, Bystro over on PSD said the Cubs really hated his attitude and wanted nothing to do with him.

Re: Food Monstrosities

So basically its a double sausage mcmuffin/biscut/mcgriddle with egg plus bacon? This is funny, they took an item that's been on Japan's breakfast menu for the better part of a decade and now it's a new menu item for us. In Japan it was called the Mega Muffin. There was also the Mega Terayaki and M...

Re: Food Monstrosities

I just looked at that places full menu and maybe that awful looking [expletive] sushi is the proper picture. 70% of that items on their menu are sushi. Outside of that there's like 6 different types of curry and that's about it.

It's weird that duck generally has a rep as a classy food bird, when they're such gross trash monsters. And what was up with Victorian folks acting like eating a goose was a big deal?

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Assuming starting point after arbitration is 206M and 246M is the point at which draft picks start being penalized, I'd do the following. Trade Almora+Chatwood for salary relief (-13M in 2019) Trade Caratini+Kintzler for salary relief (-5.5M) Trade Happ+Montomery+Hatch to Colorado for J.Gray (0, 3 y...

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

I got mine just last week and just like every other time I get one it led to me getting sick about 2 hours later and spending the rest of the next day and a half sleeping and feeling otherwise miserable. I'm starting to wonder if it's even worth it.

Very much so. There was that bat throwing incident where he intended to swing and let go of the bat to launch it at the pitcher but instead held on too long and chucked it at Josh Donaldson

Re: Week 1: Bears @ Stupid Cheeseheads 7:20pm NBC

Worst loss I have seen. Nagy crapped down his leg. He needed preseason reps. Agreed. Nagy’s playcalling was awful. If we wanted conservative we would have kept Fox. Very disappointing. Basically 15 scripted plays and Mack almost carried a garbage team to a win but our high profile CB blew the game ...

Are those Google glasses developed enough that the homeplate ump could wear them and see the strike zone box/pitch trax? Or do we not trust the umps would call what the technology is showing them? I have zero faith in them to call it correctly, in fact I believe they would actively torpedo the proj...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Schoop at SS, Shaw at 2B, Moose at 3B and Aguilar at 1B. This may be the single most awful defensive infield in decades. I'm sure the pitchers are all going to love that.

Did I miss why everyone hates Almora now and is willing to trade him for whatever? Is it just because of banking on getting Harper and him having nowhere to play? He's playing as well as he ever will. He's not particularly great on the bases, he has average power at best and his average is being ho...
