Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

On what to do to keep from going crazy with your kids. I have a 5 and a 3 year old. There are a lot of things on YouTube that are interesting for both them and my wife and me. They like watching anything about animals, travel vlogs and sailing videos. I refuse to put cartoons on. My wife will let th...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Agreed with above. However, I think many believed they would be able to get the rest of the channel content minus the games if they were out of market. Right now the Marquee twitter account says that is not possible. I’m not 100% convinced that is true. For instance, on DirecTV if I have the sports ...

Re: Feel good news thread

For years I’ve had an intense itch that we didn’t know the reason for. Many things could trigger it, but cold and wet were the worst triggers. Last year we found out it was due to Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Beat that last year. This year it has just been nice to feel normal again for a long period of time...

Re: Work Jerks

My wife works at a place that works a 9/80 schedule. 9 hours per day M-T, 8 hours one Friday and off every other Friday. And these psychos work their off Fridays for no extra pay all the time. In my company you can’t bank any time from year to year. Probably my biggest complaint because there are ti...

At least he admits that they have tons of resources and isn’t crying poor or about some crazy tax/debt limitations... That’s one positive thing, right?

Re: Pick your Expansion team

Angels
Mets
Royals
Blue Jays
Rockies
Diamondbacks

Despite two titles being a Marlins fan would be awful.

Now if it was just based on the years I was following baseball (about 1994 on):
Angels
Astros
Royals
Mariners
Rockies
Diamondbacks

Is there any chance Ross was partially favored because they think he can help them retain via long term extension any of the current players (Bryant)?

Re: Theo Speak

My grandparents lived in Arizona my entire childhood until they passed while I was in college. We visited them every summer and often on X-Mas break. We went hiking all the time. My grandpa’s property backed up to a big stretch of state park and we’d go quartz hunting. He eventually had a whole gar...

Seriously? Dusty is still getting interviews?

That has to be an Andy MacPhail move. Dusty makes Joe Maddon look like a coaching savant by comparison.


Does Bryce like Dusty?

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I’m just going to go on the record and say that I think David Ross is a recipe for disaster. I’m very opposed. That's a weirdly strong stance. Why? I don’t think managers can make a large positive influence, but I do believe they can make a large negative influence. Ross could work out just fine, b...

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I most remember Trachsel from my first game at Wrigley Field. My dad was teaching me how to keep score. After Brian Hunter lead off the game with a double my dad turned to me and said, “Well, there goes the no hitter.” Only hit the Astros got that day. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHN/CH...

I work from home and have the whole place to myself. 4 bathrooms. 2 kitchens.

Coming up on 5 years of this working situation. I could make a lot more money, but there is no way I’m ever giving this gig up.
