Re: Politics & Current Events

All I can say is I really don’t understand British politics. Brexit is wildly unpopular but they seem hellbent on voting for it.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Here is a sneaking suspicion I have that makes trading Bryant an even worse idea than it already is. - Multiple outlets talking about how trading Bryant is something more likely to happen in several weeks, after the grievance is known and the third base market thins out - Trading Bryant is easily t...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Can we discuss this logically yet or is the knee jerk hysteria still going? Yes, please. The idea that a franchise almost literally swimming in its own cash would need to trade an extremely productive recent MVP to improve its team (to say nothing of the idea that improving its team would be virtua...

For the first time, I'm really scared about what is going to happen in the next nine months. I would love to hear from a lawyer about the ability of Barr's DOJ to get indictments on FBI agents/DOJ people from grand juries based on scant evidence.

How about the Cubs just don't horsefeathering trade their best player? I'm having flashbacks from when I was 7 and the Cubs traded Bill Madlock. I cried then, and I'll cry this time too*. *I know Madlock wasn't traded. Yeah, he was... What am I missing? He was traded, but it was because the Cubs wo...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

I get not wanting to go over the top end (which is 248 this year) but it’s [expletive] not to be willing to be between the middle tier at 228 and top end at 248 and it’s completely ludicrous to want to get under the 208 this year and reset. They should be more than willing to pay the $6-15 mil or w...

In 2015 Joe was worth 4.5 Billion. PTR is reportedly worth $900M himself, while todd is worth $3 billion. I have no i...

You all have no idea how corrupt the state of Alabama is. Almost three years ago the former speaker of the House of Representatives (in Alabama, that position has more power than the governor) was convicted of 12 ethics violations.
