Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I just spent the last 90 minutes or so watching the end of Game 7. Still makes me emotional. Nothing will ever top that. When I went to bed after that game I realized I had just experienced the pinnacle sports moment of my life. Only way it could be topped is if my kids or a niece or nephew do some...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

How much longer until Javy passes KB and Rizz in popularity in Chicago? Has it already happened? My 11yo son's a huge Baez fanatic, to the point of getting a blonde mohawk and temporary MLB logo tattoos for the back of his neck during youth baseball season. Of course, he was a huge Castro fan befor...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I was wondering today, what is the average cost per plate appearance across the major leagues? If you figure the product the owners are selling are plate appearances, and the cost for them to provide them are the salaries of all the players being paid. It comes out to $24-25k/plate appearance. And t...

Re: The Cardinals

Definitely in the camp of, “dang I wish they were still letting this idiot screw things up,” but I’m also going to enjoy that their organization is at the point that they are doing something like this. First time this 30 year old has experienced them firing a manager.

Re: The Cardinals

Our hitters just became a little safer. Probably a good thing considering they might be pissed when we are ending their season in late July.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

If the Cubs get back to the World Series I would like for it to be against the Yankees or Red Sox. I’ve always thought a series against those teams would be cool.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Teams have taken the approach of working counts, which leads to more BB and more K. They have decreased BABIP by shifting. OBP and not making an out are more important than AVG. SLG is more important than AVG. These are true because that’s what the math says. “Bullpening” works because that what the...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Totally a cherry picked date, but just for fun... As has been well documented, shortly after the Cubs suffered their first no hitter in late July 2015, things have been pretty good. NL Central standings since July 28, 2015. Team / Record / W% / GB / 162-game W pace CHC 292-184 .613 — 99 STL 252-225 ...

https://securea.mlb.com/assets/images/1/9/6/285420196/cuts/960x540/cut.jpg Weird that it’s 7 NL players and 1 AL player. I saw Jose Ramirez declined. Probably a few others too.

I can't help but feel like insisting that the "right" way to have a sandwich is with soggy bread and no cheese should be the kind of thing that gets someone put on a watch list. Lol. It’s probably good toasted with cheese, but soggy and cheeseless is how they made it at my grandparents’ r...

Re: ROCK & ROLL AND PIZZA WARS / I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!

FYI. For anybody in the Kansas City area, the Pizza Man in Lenexa is pretty good. I’ve only had the thin crust Chicago style (sorry, no deep dish here) a couple of times. I usually get the Italian Beef sandwich instead. It’s as close to Portillo’s as you can get around here. Although they recently s...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah, the “problem” with the 2015-2016 Cubs in terms of finding a really good 162-game stretch is their worst month in 2015 was July and their worst month in 2016 was June, but they were insanely hot late July 2015 into early June 2016. They were 5-15 June 20 to July 9, 2016, also 12-20 from June 20...

Re: ROCK & ROLL AND PIZZA WARS / I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!

I voted traditional pan, but I love/would try everything on this list. Except St Louis style. I have tried it. Even as a kid I thought it was gross. Chicago deep dish is a close second. I like tons of sauce, so that’s one reason I like Chicago deep dish. I always order extra sauce on any pizza that ...

Re: The Cardinals

I’m actually kind of holding out hope they somehow get a wild card spot but lose the game. In the process they mortgage some of the future and it buys Mozeliak and Matheny another season.

Crazy DH idea. If we scrap AL/NL, what if each team had to declare before each season if their home games would be played with/without a DH? If you're scrapping AL/NL, just pick a ruleset and go with it. DH or not. Consistency across the league is more important to me than whether we have the DH or...
