Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

i mean those are all things that if the white sox don't check, neither do the cubs lol I view the Cubs as a far better "location" draw than the White Sox in terms of Wrigley and just generally the stage the Cubs are on vs the White Sox and also don't the White Sox have some of the worst S...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If the White Sox are actually serious about signing Harper, is anyone at all concerned about them blowing past whatever largest offer the Cubs end up with, considering their irrational and petty hatred of the Cubs organization?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I'm surprised you didn't mention "privileged" too That was implied. I already know your opinion but I'll ask it anyways, do you think white straight guys don't enjoy privileges? I mean, can you name a person who owns a baseball team that isn't a straight white guy? I can only think of one...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

You all need to learn to separate your political views from every single aspect of life, especially the parts that are supposed to be fun. A lot of sucky stuff is going on, but I’ve become a lot happier by not letting it be on the forefront of my mind all day every day. Can’t change anything anyway...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I really don’t understand hating the Ricketts. Like, aren’t we supposed to want the monopoly guy to own our team AND also be a fan who wants the team to win AND is smart enough to hire smart baseball people to be the ones to decide how to spend his money? Not sure what more you could want in an own...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Saw that Garrett Richards will be a FA. I know he’s been hurt the past 3 years and had TJ surgery this year, but he has really good stuff. Anyone like the idea of the Cubs taking a flier on him and grooming him for the bullpen? He has really good stuff, but not sure when he’d be back from rehab.

Anyone know why Cole Roederer was defensively substituted out of last night’s AZL Cubs 2 game? Looks to have happened between innings.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-4-18

A couple of potential injuries to monitor???

Game logs from yesterday’s games show that Ademan got taken out after a defensive play at 2nd base and Rochest Cruz got taken out after running to 1st on a groundout in the 1st inning.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-25-18

What a depressing minor league season for the Cubs. By some lists, the 3 top pitching prospects for the Cubs: Alzolay out for the year. De La Cruz sucked and then got suspended for 80 games. Albertos imploded. Their top hitting prospect at the start of the season, Ademan struggled mightily in the f...

Re: Familia to mystery team (not Cubs)

In a trade that has been widely expected since last night, the Athletics have officially acquired right-hander Jeurys Familia from the Mets. In exchange, the Athletics have sent a pair of minor leaguers back to New York: third baseman William Toffey and right-hander Bobby Wahl. The Mets will also r...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-14-18

Hopefully Hatch's last start was a sign of him improving after a rough month or so. I remember him having a really ugly start to 2017 as well, before turning it on. Meh. Make him a reliever and see if his stuff picks up. I don't really care for Hatch and I was disappointed when the Cubs selected hi...

Re: 2017 Post-Season Prospect Rankings (BA, Fangraphs, BP)

While the Cubs FO has done well at the top of drafts, in international free agency and trades, is it fair to criticize the lack of prospects from rounds 2 and on (besides Cease)? From looking at these top 100 prospect lists, there are a number of players drafted after the 1st round and competitive b...

I'm not a professional autograph seeker, so what is typically brought for players to sign? Pictures, balls, etc?

I'm going also for the first time and bringing my 8 year old. How early do I need to be there each day and what is good for kids? Not staying downtown, but planning to trek into the city each day. I know my kid really wants to meet Rizzo. Any advice is appreciated.
