Kellyanne and her husband are playing the media like a fiddle. This is better than Matlin and Carvil.

I know we hate the comparison because the crimes aren't comparable, but this is the Bill Clinton playbook on dealing with potentially presidency-ending scandals. It works. Well, you just said it. The crimes aren't comparable. Lying under oath about an affair is small potatoes compared to what is ha...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If the White Sox are actually serious about signing Harper, is anyone at all concerned about them blowing past whatever largest offer the Cubs end up with, considering their irrational and petty hatred of the Cubs organization? He would likely bankrupt them. Even if he doesn't, they won't be able t...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I agree mostly with TT. If the Cubs don't make an offer to Harper or the offer is significantly less than what he signs for, this is mostly on the front office. It seems like Theo and Co have changed their operating assumptions that pitching is a premium and value is in the offense. Maybe Chatwood b...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Obviously, no one except Theo and his team, Boras and his team, and Harper know what's really happening. But I don't get the, "if Harper wants to come to the Cubs, he will." He will not come if the Cubs make a substandard offer. This is giving me PTSD to the Hendry/Tribune Cubs when they w...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It's funny that everyone just assumes the Cubs are some cash cow for the Ricketts family that throws off tons of cash on a yearly basis directly into their pockets. It would be very surprising if that was even remotely the reality. With that said, sign Harper. The Cubs are a cash cow for the Ricket...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Bryce just needs to sign so we have something fun to talk about. Day 1 of the Winter Meetings in Vegas: Harper calls a press conference. Sits at a table with hats of the Phillies, Nats, Dodgers, Yankees in front of him. Says he has decided. Then, Anthony Rizzo appears, flips the table. Kris Bryant ...

Yeah.... Schwarber likely won't be as plus a defender, i dont know wtf is going on in CF but if you have confidence in Almora/Happ that's your burden. Heyward is obviously washed. Rizzo is out of the prime phase. Zobrist is 45. Javy likely won't be a 5-WAR guy ever again. Bryant is an unknown. Cont...

meanwhile, the mainstream reporters are taking direct quotes from Theo: https://twitter.com/PJ_Mooney/status/1070796370544615424 Obviously doesnt mean they are out on Harper. In fact he might be alluding to the Cubs potentially trying to make it work, but it definitely confirms that we are under a ...
