Re: The Cardinals

this is my kinda horsefeathers right here The recent history of Cubs players involved in domestic violence might be reason to reposition your moral high ground.

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

Okay I lied, my new favorite thing about the Brewer attitude is the idea that 3 years from now everyone on the Cubs will be old and/or expensive and they'll have no farm system to replenish with. They say this immediately after the Cubs traded Eloy, Cease, Candelario, and Paredes. The only one of t...

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

More of a general Brewers musing, what do you think Theo would have done if in like 2013 he randomly found the Cubs 5.5 games up in the division at the all star break. I'm thinking he would have stuck to the plan and done exactly what the Brewers are doing with their fringe acquisitions because eve...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I'm saying that Dunn is sorta what he is right now, and that's fine. We don't need him to be an MVP. And maybe he ends up hitting for better average (bonus!) but he doesn't need to to be productive That statline through your first 162 games doesnt scare me at all.

Quintana was probably drooling at the chance of facing that Sox offense that he got to see in person blow his wonderful starts for years and years. Poor guy.

Jesus, what a click bait, hot take troll. https://twitter.com/MorrisseyCST/status/885574350396641281 It’s a trade that is all about the future, which is fine if the future is what floats your boat. And it apparently floats an armada, judging by Cubs fans’ reaction to the trade on social media. But ...

He is a good #3. The Cubs gave up at top 3 prospect in the game for a guy that has underwhelmed this season until recently. Watch him pitch and tell me he is an ace...its just not there.

Re: Addison Russell

Im at the point I think Baez is the least likely to be moved out of him, Russell and Happ now.

Happ's value might be at its highest and a perfect time to move & I feel Baez has surpassed Russell on both sides of the ball, plus still has the much higher ceiling.
