Re: Politics & Current Events

Stephen Hawking's opinion: “Trump was elected by people who felt disenfranchised by the governing elite in a revolt against globalisation,” he told ITV1’s breakfast programme. “His priority will be to satisfy his electorate, who are neither liberal nor that well informed. ” Boldface is mine.

I now imagine Theo's pride in his son talking about baseball is like when Homer realizes Lisa is good at hockey. https://frinkiac.com/meme/S06E08/615047.jpg?b64lines=TGlzYTogSSBXSUxMIFNJVCBVUCBGUk9OVCBXSVRIIApZT1UgSUYgSVQnUyBBIEZBVEhFUkxZIApHRVNUVVJFIE9GICBMT1ZFLiAKCgoKCgpIb21lcjogT0sgSG9uZXkuLi4KU1...

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #27)

I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but there are absolutely not 26 better moments than Montero's grand slam. Easy Top 5. Yeah, I mean the order doesn't really matter and I totally prefer making the way through the rounds of the playoffs so that the list has a better flow, but this gran...

Re: Most Memorable Cubs Games You've Attended

I haven't attended any memorable cubs games, but I did attend Game 7 of the 2001 World Series between the Yankees and Diamondbacks. I got tickets early on in the series when they opened up Game 7 thinking that I would sell them and try to make money (I was a sophomore in college at the time) and see...

Re: Strop signs extension: thru '18 w/ '19 club option

i just like the subtle differences to the 80's home unis Me too. Not terribly different but so much better. I love the blue waistband and trim around the neck and sleeves.

Re: Politics & Current Events

It's impressive how dumb Trump continually manages to sound, especially when talking about that "doing business" thing he's supposed to be so great at: Yeah, honestly that is one of the most annoying things about him getting elected. I sort of get that there is a large percentage of the p...

I can't wait to see the reaction from the right. They can't keep brushing this off, pushing for no investigation.

Re: World Series Swag Thread

I'm guessing this has been discussed somewhere, but I'm lazy: Are there any videos like the World Series video that have full season highlights, or at least for the playoffs? Or is there any word on whether such a video is in the works? Probably not helpful but there is basically every relevant min...

If it proves to be that unpopular with the gen pop, it won't make it through Congress. If it gets through the tiny man with tinier hands won't be able to sign it fast enough. There's no logic or reasoning here, it's about winning. Repealing the trademark of the former guy means he wins and that mak...

"Kyle, you guys need another set-up man with Rondon not being himself. Is that something you could do?" "Well, I've never pitched before, but, horsefeathers it, yeah, I'll get it done." This reminded me of something I was thinking about before Game 1. I imagined a conversation b...

Re: 10/25 World Series Game 1: Cubs (Lester) vs Indians (Kluber) 7 p.m., FOX

I'd say my most confident guess is Willson in LF, Bryant in RF, Javy at 3B, Zobrist at 2B. 2nd guess would be Bryant/Zobrist in LF/RF, LaStella at 2B (GOD NO, NO GOD) Javy at 3B. Hard to see them moving Javy off of second at this point. I can't imagine any Cubs pitcher being happy with Javy not at ...

Re: 10/25 World Series Game 1: Cubs (Lester) vs Indians (Kluber) 7 p.m., FOX

So sounds like the lineup would be Fowler, CF Schwarber, DH (my fingers tingled as I typed this) Bryant, 3B Rizzo, 1B Zobrist, RF Baez, 2B Contreras, LF Ross, C Russell, SS Seeing a lineup like this takes me back to the opening day when Angel fans referred to it as a video game lineup.

I'm not sure what he'll be able to do but if anyone could come back after 6 months and do something great it would be Schwarber, who has pretty much risen to every occasion that he's encountered so far. I think the measured response is to consider that anything he does do is a bonus. It's not like ...
