Re: Addison Russell

I've struggled with this one more than anything surrounding the Cubs. I incorrectly overlooked Chapman due to the long suffering of losing while in a year that was great based on W/L but low on morality. Murphy is a homophobic clown, the Ricketts' and their terrible ideologies angered me but not to ...

are you guessing the twins manager will become the cubs bench coach?


Meh, nevermind. I completely forgot about that.

Re: Cubs coaching staff 2019

If I was to make a guess, I would guess that it would be Baldelli. Of course, with a new PC (Hottovy) who's inexperienced I'd rather see them get someone more familiar with pitching as well as the analytics of managing. My personal choice would be Brian Bannister as BC with the potential of becoming...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I like the idea that the deep state is a horrible, uncontrolable beast until you imagine it is trying to put Hillary in jail. Or the idea that a Flynn guilty plea and subsequent cooperation was the first domino needed to bring down Hillary. There is no way the people typing this actually believe it...

Re: Stocks

"Black Monday's" loss of ~500 feels awfully quaint nowadays. What would that make yesterday, "Death Spiral Tuesday"? If the market lost 5500 points on Tuesday, that would have been similar to '87. With car sales and home sales stagnant, I expect consumer confidence will slump to...

Re: Addison Russell

The only reason he got a contract is because the Cubs didn't want to get nothing for him but I can almost guarantee you he's played his last game as a Cub. Why let a guy become a free agent after the horsefeathers he did? I'm confused as to how his value will go up if they don't intend on playing h...

Re: Fired Hoiberg

I can understand the firing, he's not a NBA coach (I'm aware Garpax gave him crap), I don't understand how Boylan locked up the gig already for next year.

McCarthy fired. Game against the Packers in 2 weeks just got slightly harder I’m not sure I buy into the notion of McCarthy was terrible, like most people here in Packerland. Yeah.

Re: Fired Hoiberg

I don't follow the Bulls much at all, but how are GarPax still around? How many coaches do they get to hire/fire? This is Boylan's second stint as coach, right? No, this interim coach is Jim Boylen, different from the Jim Boylan that was interim head coach 10 years ago. Is this the worst run organi...
