Re: Tyler Chatwood is awesome and we were wrong to ever doubt him*

Chatwood and Heyward are the Cubs' two best players.

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

If only there were an outfielder a year older than those two that was hitting .278/.418/.544 that we could have added a couple months ago.

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

He was already fired, but he keeps on showing up at the park. Ricketts will never turn down labor he's already paid for, as tight as things are for the Cubs budget-wise. And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Theo that if they move my desk one more time, then, th...

I don’t understand how tight things are. Like, are we not gonna resign Kris Bryant? What are we looking at here


They'll have to the money to resign KB. But he is going to sign in Philly to play with Bryce, and we'll sign Kyle Seager instead.

as ssr has pointed out several times, the sad truth is that picking up hamels’ option instead of signing harper makes perfect sense once you realize we also have no money for next season. this organization in no way deserves our attention.

80 wins tops. Javy breaks his leg doing a Javy Slide and misses most of the season. I'm actively rooting against them by April 15.
