Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

The FA RP market is so deep I really have no interest in spending the money it would require on Kimbrel. Eovaldi seems like a ticking time bomb too, I’d rather just exercise the Hamels option if we’re spending on SPs. If it blows up, it’s only 1 year.

This guy actually sounds kind of good, is he?

Maybe? He’s kinda Morrowish in his journey

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

One day off after a game that will likely end between midnight and 1AM on Thursday and then ten more consecutive games without a break starting on Friday. What a horsefeathers schedule. Yeah, at least they have a DH this weekend to help get the position guys rest and also if they do their job from ...

That fan rushing the field and getting to the mound when he was out there and then having an oh horsefeathers moment when he realized Howry would beat his ass is still one my favorite all time Cubs moments

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

Pretty much; I'm just not expecting him to even last TO the playoffs, much less into them. I just dislike Kintzler that much....it's no deep DLR love. Kintzler is legitimately one of the worst pitchers I've ever seen in a Cubs uniform. Maybe I'm being irrational but I hate this dude beyond measure ...

Re: It's Maddoning

Yeah, being spoiled is awesome. I definitely have some issues with how Joe uses the pen, but not nearly to the point I'd want him gone or anything. And if I did, it wouldn't matter anyway, because he's not going anywhere. But yeah, I'd suspect our 4 star Yelp doctor and staff are history after the ...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

That guy is just a troll who somehow has built up a fan base as a White Sox guy on twitter even though most of his tweets are about the Cubs.

He totally thinks their rebuild is going 100% great too.

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

What I dont get is how the injury is a deep bone bruise? That doesnt seem pitching related. Hit by a ball, fell down, bar fight.. maybe. But how do you get a deep bone bruise that keeps you out since july 18th without some contact? He probably has that same stress reaction type deal Darvish had/has...

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

Maybe next time don't spend $10M a year on the guy who you have to baby the horsefeathers out of to get down to a 70/30 chance he's going to get hurt The signing itself was fine, IMO, but they REALLY dropped the ball by acting like they only needed to prop up the bullpen in-season with the likes of...

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

https://twitter.com/espnchicubs/status/1042199223670779904?s=21 I remember that game. We were questioning why Morrow was coming in after the Cubs broke it open and it was explained that he was already warmed up or something and I want to say that Edwards and/or Cishek was also unavailable that game...
