Re: General Chit-Chat thread

I make my kids watch trains and nature videos on YouTube. They’re always mesmerized. Then my wife decided to start introducing cartoons for some stupid reason. They were happy. I wasn’t annoyed. Why change things?

Re: 2019 Cubs schedule

Barring circumstances much worse than this last season, I am fully expecting 100 wins next season.

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

https://twitter.com/basebailking/status/1050164359299850240 When I was 13 I was walking down the sidewalk in St Louis before a Cubs/Cardinals game. I noticed Angel Hernandez was walking towards me. I very creatively said, “Hey, Angel! You suck!” Amazing I know. But seriously, if the 13 year olds re...

Re: Amazon Scam Site

I’m pretty sure it’s a Mobile Safari issue that keeps getting worse across many websites. Fangraphs was also the first place I started seeing it frequently.

https://media.giphy.com/media/oskoZyFO0II2Q/giphy.gif Yes, I know. And if we sign Harper I’m still going to be excited about it. I’m not vehemently opposed. So if you're against signing Harper then you're basically against any large contract for a significant FA. The Darvish deal can still work out...

Re: The Cardinals

For the 800th time, 94 or 95 wins is not blowing the division. Especially when it’s due in large part to one player on a different team going Barry Bonds mode. We survived Carpenter going Bonds mode, and we may survive Yelich as well. Not to mention the injuries. Nobody is blowing anything. 800 tim...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

My wife and I graduated high school together. I had zero desire (not negative desire, just no desire) to go to our 10 year reunion, but she wanted to go. It ended up being a good time. Also, kind of depressing in a lot of ways. Life was good to a few but hard on most. We also had deaths since high s...

Re: Tiebreakers and Makeups Rules

Then how would they determine for a potential LCS? Head to head results, I guess? If that were tied, I don't know what the next move would be - but then, since most inter-division matchups are 6 games per season, if one weren't completed, odds are someone would have the H2H edge. Let’s say the over...
