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...

Re: 2018 Cubs Convention

The most important advice has already been given. Decide what forums you want to attend and be early for them . If you are in one of the forums that addresses questions from the floor and want a question answered, get in line early. How much early in advance do you need to be at forums and autograp...

Re: 2018 Cubs Convention

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

Also, what is typical for dining? Restaurants in hotel or outside?

Re: 2018 Cubs Convention

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.

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2017-2018

https://twitter.com/JesseSanchezMLB/status/860481830469775360 Cubs are still in the penalty box, but are still considered the favorites to sign the number 30 prospect this upcoming season. He's out of Mexico, so the Cubs are taking advantage of the loophole again, where only the amount given to the...

Anyone know of a legit website to buy World Series tickets without all of the buying fees you get at Stubhub, SeatGeek, etc.?

Re: 2016 Trade Deadline

So uhh.. any chance Chris Sale is on the block at the deadline? They're too dumb to realize they should be rebuilding and also probably wouldn't deal with us for stupid reasons. What Tim said about Reinsdorf not wanting to sit thru a rebuild at 80 yo. But there are dumb reasons why they won't trade...

Re: 2016 Trade Deadline

The White Sox are such a gaping hole of MLB level talent that they're furiously DFA'ing signing and trading for a revolving door of bums This is so entertaining Reeks of a desperate team that still thinks they can "go for it." With the problems they have with their starting pitching, bull...
