Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Harrelson was the worst announcer that I ever heard. It just goes to show you that if you hang around long enough, somebody will honor you The worst part is he hasn't gotten worse over the years as Hary Carey did, he sucked like this right out of the chute. Reinsdorf loved him for some reason. Let'...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

In my little town I grew up in our class was very close and we still are, but since Trump the tight group has gotten a lot smaller. It's hard to explain, but a lot of us are like family. Many of my friends go and visit my dad since my mom died. Our class reunions are fun, but I wouldn't say they are...

This is both disgusting (on the GOP's part) and hilarious (for the GOP) https://www.miamiherald.com/latest-news/article218820735.html One Republican ad questioned a combat soldier’s commitment to helping other veterans. Another struck a sinister tone in referencing a veteran’s Marine Corps t-shirt....

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

Elections have consequences. There is a sizeable minority on the left that are secretly happy all this has happened. Not because they can say I told you so, but because they think this is going to usher in some sort of new era of progressive policies. They don't understand that there are very few pr...

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

A Trumper undoubtedly leaked a story to the NYT saying Rosenstein tried to envoke the 25th Amendment and offered to wear a wire when talking to Trump. The timing is uncanny. Rosenstein is, of course, denying the story. It's a pretext to fire him and a distraction from the stadium fire that is going ...

Speaking of political wagers, I have a COMPLETELY hypothetical situation for you to chime in on as you would like. Let's say that you had three even-odds wagers with a friend of yours. You placed 1000 bitcoins at even odds that Trump would not remain President for his entire elected term. You place...

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

Supposedly, there are a bunch of Federal court employees who have a damaging story to tell about Kavanaugh but are afraid to come forward for fear of backlash. I think it may be related to when he was a clerk for a Federal judge who was booted off the bench for sexual harassment. There is a good lik...

Re: 2018 remainder of season injury thread

If the Cubs do manage to win a World Series against Boston or Houston, this "team" has to be considered one of the best ever for what they've done after all the injuries.

It's Maddoning

Joe seems to have pretty significantly mishandled the pitching staff with his hand-picked pitching coach (see Theo's comments about Morrow). If the Cubs don't make it deep into the postseason what are the chances that his contract is not renewed?

I would bet against that happening. Only people who are capable of feeling shame would consider resigning over this. Being accused of sexual assault just emboldens these jackwagons. Yeah, what pressure is there really for him to withdraw? The GOP sure isn't gonna pressure him. The President isn't. ...

I don't want Kavanaugh anywhere near the Supreme Court, and I think he could be disqualified for numerous reasons, but I struggle with the Ford accusation because I don't see any way for it to be proven or disproven. I don't doubt that the events occurred, but I fear for the precedent it sets and t...
