Re: Jon Lester's Cutter Is a Cut Above the Rest

RIPD Jon Lester's season No, I thought ahead here. Since trading Schwarber from my fantasy team fixed him, and Lester is on my team, I'll just have to trade him, too. Update: Just released him from my fantasy team 30 minutes ago. He'll be good to go for the playoffs. Are you picking up all National...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

Wouldnt be shocked if he was out til late June/July and its a pretty good bet that he struggles when he does return. That sucks for him, for that to happen while running the damn bases is a shame. I much prefer reading about things like Syndergaard holding a shotgun to his shoulder and pulling the ...

Re: NBA Offseason

That's a lot of teams claiming to lose money in a league that always seems to be telling us how much money they are bringing in (obviously don't know what kind of accounting shenanigans some may be pulling or if it's part of some owners plans to run at a loss, but still). https://twitter.com/zachlo...

Re: The Des Moines shuttle

He really seems like a Hendricks-type pitcher. Not overpowering stuff but great command. I like him as an option for the 5th start spot next year. This move does seem questionable now though. I'd also guess Davis is catching him today? Joe would've had to of gotten into the meth for Taylor Davis to...

Yeah I'm picking Oakland most likely. I'm in 2 so I'll maybe do Oakland in one and Seattle in another, Ravens are also a decent option.

Super hoppy bitter IPAs are the dumbest beers ever. Give me a big bourbon barrel aged stout or a hazy IPA or GTFO.

Most IPAs are the dumbest, most overrated beer ever and made up for beer snobs to be all sanctimonious about.

I have no doubt the FO is figuring out every angle to get this done. But get it horsefeathering done Theo, whether it's a promise to rip up his measly contract within a year and give him a $100-200 million new contract, access to a secret TD Ameritrade account set up by Ricketts with millions in it ...

Re: Cubs open 2018 in Miami

Pretty unfair to the Brewers that they might not even play in Miami this weekend and even if they do it will be a damaged stadium and the next time we go it's going to be re-built and refurbished like new.

So I've been wondering about extensions for our young players and which ones would actually accept it. I think #1 for me is W.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

With Willy back and the offense needing a boost, if Joe is willing to punt some defense early in games, I really would like to see some variation of the following offense (not lineup order 1-8 just positions) vs RHP; C: Avila 3B: Bryant SS: Javy 2B: Zobrist/Seal Boy 1B: Rizzo LF: Happ/Jay/Schwarber/...
