Boy it sure would be hard to pick four Republicans for the toilet people Mount Rushmore. So many of them are just so bad!

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

That's the dumbest thing I've ever read. Same price, same cost in picks, but don't have him for this year? Why?

Not to mention the other teams that probably would have traded for him if the Bears said "we'll wait until next spring".

I wonder if the protagonist will be the FBI agent or the thief. Gotta be the FBI agent, right?

It's going to be 3 hours for sure, that story has so many characters and stuff going on.

Re: Non-prospect that had the best MLB career?

Among the WAR top ten leaderboard from 2013 (arbitrary) to present is Josh Donaldson, Jose Altuve, Paul Goldschmidt, and Matt Carpenter, and none of them made it onto a BP top 101 list.

Re: The New Daily Double...?

This thread grates on me way more than it should, which is probably not at all. Dernier was just decent for only a year and Kenny Lofton was a Cub for only a couple months. These leadoff combos were not deserving of nicknames. Like at all. Why is this making me so angry? In summary, the nickname &qu...

Janet Reno just looks like a regular human to me. Sanders looks like a demon. I guess it must be about what she says and the way she says it. Is it ok to hate her for that?

Re: Offseason Transactions

Acuna turned down a 5 or 6 year offer for around $30 million, I assume if he would've accepted this would've allowed him to start the year right away in MLB since they would've got a year or 2 of FA bought out. I don't think five or six years buys out any free agency. Seems crazy for him not to tak...

A lot of posters here really like LHP - M. Liberatore so I'll post the link to a recent article on Fangraphs. I still think the Cubs have no chance at him, and it's kind of a waste of time to dream on getting him. I do think his velocity picks up as we get closer to the draft, and that he gets take...
