Re: Christian Yelich

Since we (me I’ll take the blame) are giving this guy some merit, he says Marlins have requested final offers on Yelich. Post 671. His source also thinks they have a good shot at getting him, I hope not. He added some more after saying 95% chance he goes to Brewers, go to the Padres, Braves or Sox p...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

lol they're hoping this "cools down" Bryce Harper speculation It's going to be tough to cool down with our window closing this swiftly. Cubs play in Milwaukee in early April. When do Brewers single game tickets go on sale? I would like to see Darvish in his second start as a Cub vs the Va...

Re: Golf shop recommendations

Tax refund time is right around the corner... In the absence of a golf or shopping thread, can anyone recommend a good golf shop in the Chicago area to buy a new set of clubs? The most important thing for me is making sure I buy the "right" clubs for me, so I want to find a shop that is t...

I bet Cleveland was really upset when they traded him to Texas instead.

They were, Lucroy vetoed the trade and didn’t have the greatest things to say about Cleveland iirc

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

The Brewer fan message board guy who knows things says we got Darvish.

Post 162, the board seems to vouch for him and he says he has sources and has broken stuff before.....

Re: Christian Yelich

Can you imagine the window the Brewers are closing if they get Yelich? Marlins asked for Acuna from the Braves, apparently. The Brewers don’t even have a top 20 prospect, so many windows would be closed if they make a move.

Re: Christian Yelich

It’s kinda weird all the sudden all this Brewers news is leaking. Almost like they just want to fake show fans they are trying, don’t end up with anyone and then can justify starting Gallardo and Sogards of the world when they win 72 games and be like “what are ya gonna do, we tried to get good play...

I was really hoping he was going to be the guy to get the job as well, but overall should be a solid booth. I feel like Vasgersian is going to try to be the show and talk over A-Rod and Jessica though.

I could live with 6/150, was hoping 6/130 was the top. But from an AAV standpoint I can live with it. Especially if it’s front loaded a bit with real money. Yuck on six years, right? Right?

Re: Cubs starting their own network?

The nets, Michael Kay interviews, Mike Francesca simulcasts and lower level college sports. It's god awful programming that makes it truly pointless to exist. A Cubs channel alone, without at least one partner like the blackhawks, would be a terrible product for consumers. Got it, thanks. So offsea...

Re: Cubs starting their own network?

Anyone in the YES market know what they show in the offseason? Do they contract with like a lower level college conference to show games for football/basketball? I’m sure there would be some added Cubs original programming stuff but can only have so much of that.

Bucks fire Kidd Good. I hate Jason Kidd and think he's an idiot. Bucks can do better, and need to do better before Giannis and Bledsoe decide to go elsewhere. PS: I hope the Bulls target Giannis if he ever becomes disgruntled and pushes for a trade out of Milwaukee. You and every team in the league...
