Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

Hopefully, an official bracket is still released, it'd be cool to see the Illini finally ended their 7 year hiatus. I'm hoping for at least a bracket which may not be as far fetched as you'd think because there's a sliver that the tournament could theoretically be played in a month. Maybe it's a pi...

Re: 2019-2020 College Basketball season

The Big East canceled at halftime of St Johns/Creighton, which is weird that they even let it go that far anyway.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

This is a difficult question because nobody really knows what the exact profit is that a team like the Cubs make after all the expenses, but what is a good guess as to what the payroll should be and one that would get people to go, 'OK, they spend enough.' $300 million? $400 million? I would guess ...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

feel like Trea Turner would make a lot of sense for the Cubs - excellent contact, speed, and creates a dynamic up the middle defense with him and Javy.

Re: Bears vs Cowboys Thursday night on FOX

what would be the bigger gut punch win out and still miss the playoffs beat GB and KC then have a win and in against the Vikings and lose? Don't think either are likely, but it feels like one of those is the way this season would end. I would definitely be gut punched if they won out and still miss...

Also the offense did jack squat all game but for some reason people forget that. What that reason is, we'll sadly never know...

Nevermind the fact that all the superstar and high-value players on that roster... Kershaw, Buehler, Ryu, Jansen, Bellinger, Seager, Turner, Pederson. They were all drafted, traded for, or signed before he got there. The best acquisition Friedman has made has probably been Max Muncy and the best FA...

Joe Espada or Carlos Beltran sound good to me. If the Astros and Yankees brain trusts, respectively, like these guys, that's good enough for me. Espada and Bard are my top 2. Totally down with that.
