Re: Tyler Skaggs Dead (Angels Pitcher)

Wowwwww, that's despicable on the part of the family. What horrible people. What? If there’s someone in the organization enabling drug abuse and prescribing/supplying these guys drugs they don’t need they should absolutely be investigated. Did you read the article? They're just blindly lashing out ...

Cubs dong the Mets to death is a nice irony when facing Chili.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Insurance will help. His usage by the Dodgers is what killed him in my opinion. I would argue that him having a history of getting injured every year he's been in the majors since 2009 is what killed him Yep. If the revisionist history becomes "oh, well the Dodgers broke him" it's going t...

Love this. Remains to be seen whether itll be a good signing, but Yu seems to have an awesome, well rounded personality and also isnt afraid to use stats & facts.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Beyond that, you can't really point to a lot that he's done in the last couple years that have added to the short term or long term success of this club. Agreed the last two years have not been his greatest, but that isnt a sample size large enough for me to start saying they arent an elite FO or t...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

So you need a few more years AFTER the last two years? And I thought we were the idiots talking about him being terrible for five years in a row. Yeah call me crazy for not wanting to kick him to the curb after an injury riddled 95 win season. I trust his track record and his general intelligence. ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yes, again, I'm saying Epstein is in a position where he can't effectively just ride out his success to the end of his tenure with the Cubs. Sure that isnt how you phrased it. Theo's much closer to making yet another costumed getaway than being able to do some laurel-resting. Not going to dissect t...

Yes, that's accurate. The same goes for Jon Lester. Do you think Jon Lester is one of the best pitchers in baseball right now? The game caught up to Theo. I still dont think the game has caught up to Theo. He has evolved before. I think there is ebbs and flows to building a franchise and all FO wil...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

They have a track record going back to 03 that is pretty phenomenal. You can argue about bringing Russell, Chapman and Murphy in but it is very hard to argue against their baseball results. I also wouldnt have gave a horsefeathers if they got rid of Russell, but they I absolute understand the appro...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

IMO, Houston, Dodgers & Yankees are the top 3 FO's. Thats obviously the tier they are in and they all have their arguments. Theo and Hoyer have a much longer track record than the Hou / LA crew and even in the last 5 year sample size are clearly right with them. They also have the most importan...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If Bryce signs because of (in part) his friendship with KB, does that help the Cubs keep KB down the road cuz he wants to stay with Bryce? Conversely, if the Cubs can't sign Bryce, does that make it harder for them to retain KB? No idea what will happen but I wouldnt doubt if Bryce definitely wants...
