Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

Will you stop talking out your ass and just making [expletive] up as you go? Are you going to quit being an horsefeathers any time soon? No? Everything I just said was true, so I'm not totally sure what you're getting at. Also, Chapmand wasn't arrested, charged, or convicted. He didn't go to jail. ...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

Murderers and child molesters get out of prison in only a few years, and then they continue on with their lives. That's how it works. Oh, is that how it works? Murders and child molesters get out and then they have no troubles after that? No trouble getting jobs or anything? They don't have to regi...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

There's a big difference between this and the Castro thing. Castro's was a matter of an alleged rape. The question was did it happen or was it somebody trying to cash in (I'm not taking either side, just stating the argument.) Chapman's is we know that he committed this atrocious act; do we root fo...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

I mean, Chapman served a 30 game suspension. How long should he be suspended for accusations? Lifetime ban? Almost all jobs judge you based on a background check. The only thing that matters is convictions. MLB is already going a step further by punishing players who were accused but not convicted....

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

Anyone posting anything trying to excuse or downplay Chapman's actions can go [expletive] themselves. You're part of the problem concerning DV and athletes/celebrities. I ignored a lot of garbage players and rooted for them as a kid because I didn't know any better. But I'm a [expletive] adult now ...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

I wonder if the Cubs' hitters are going to continue their friendly tradition with Chapman and tease him when they score too many runs for him to get a save.

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

I have a hard time demonizing him for what he did given the understanding of where he came from, what he endured, and what every day must be like. What I worry a tremendous amount about is how he has changed, or IF he has changed and how he did that. it almost sounds like he is trending towards dee...

I'm half serious and half joking. In the slums of Cuba, firing off half a clip in your garage to prove a point probably isn't THAT rare.

Sorry I cannot dismiss firing a shotgun off to intimidate something you're fighting with as something drunk people just do sometimes. That honestly depends your upbringing.

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

As David touched on, there are plenty of pro athletes who aren't very good people. I'd be willing to bet there are a few players on the Cubs roster that have put their hands on a woman in their life. You root for them. But, it's Aroldis that was the subject of a highly publicized police investigati...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

Why is it such a bonus that we don't have to face Chapman in the playoffs, but meanwhile it doesn't really make much difference that he's pitching for us now? Now our opponents have to face him, and we are the direct beneficiaries. And yeah, I am aware that your closer doesn't make much difference ...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

BTW, if the forum hadn't crashed, I could pull up my post from the off-season (before the domestic violence thing) where I said the Cubs needed a proven dominant closer like Aroldis Chapman to shut folks down in the playoffs. I said that I didn't feel confident in our bullpen. The general consensus...
