Just sign Bryant and be done with it. However, I like that K from LSU.

Not very often do you see triples on balls hit to left/center.

Stuff like this continues to be said, and I continue to be unmoved. It's [expletive]. The next Dem majority will see all these furrow-browed GOPers (current and former) rally around pols like Romney, Sasse and Haley.

He said best since Prior. That's not really comparing him to Prior. It's not really that high of praise, either, unless I'm forgetting someone really obvious. Best Cubs pitching "prospect" I can think of from 2002-now is like...Rich Hill? Cashner? Samardzija? Hendricks obviously turned ou...

Re: Addison Russell

So Russell at his worst is as good as Garcia at his best? Robel over his last 10 games .214 with a .233 OBP what happens when every hit stops being a XBH after they stop throwing him FB like they have since his last HR. You guys are blinded by the DV stuff with Russell, but he's 100% one of our bes...

Re: Addison Russell

He's 100% better than 2 of them and a better SS than Javy In July Garcia has a 1.020 OPS to Russell's .723. That's a bigger sample size and a much bigger margin. Also Jon Lester has a 1.400 OPS in July. Arbitrary sample sizes are fun. i know you are being sarcastic but arbitrary sample sizes that m...

What's the down side of eliminating student debt? Who loses? Student debt punishes young people in the poor and middle class. The kids of the rich don't have to deal with debt after going to Yale or Harvard that they only got into based on family legacy. It's another way to punish lower income peop...
