Re: Addison Russell

The whole front office and everyone involved in anything continually horsefeathers these things up and we continue to employ horsefeathers people and care only about winning. But Joe Maddon is a horsefeathering moron and he is completely detached from reality. He comes off tone-deaf nearly every tim...

Re: 2018 remainder of season injury thread

Just gonna have to 05 White Sox the playoffs. Every starter goes 7-8 innings and we hand it off to Cishek and Chavez. That seems like a bit of an overreaction. I know nearly all of the innings came against the Reds and we really shouldn't be planning on Jorge de la Rosa shutting people down in the ...

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

We could probably place some blame on the people who signed the pitcher who is always hurt. So who is in the NLDS bullpen? Wilson Montgomery De la Rosa? Edwards Cishek Chavez Then either Kintzler, Rosario, maybe Webster if he impresses, or Strop (I'd be stunned) for the last spot? http://i.imgur.co...

They should have a broadcast focused solely on Javy and then after every decision he makes, he explains why he did what he did.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Same here. Though the flipside of that is that when Carl is on he seems SO much better. Like, with Strop I'm always feeling a little nervous, despite his track record and reliability, just due to the general nature of how he pitches; kind of like a low grade Marmol when Marmol was in that in-betwee...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I do think Carl's blowups are different than Strop's though. That might just be my perception. And there could be some recency bias from something like last night. But I feel like Pedro has had a number of incidents where we've been on pins and needles; he's maybe put a couple guys on and then grin...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah, I think Strop closing is correct. It can’t be Carl because when he doesn’t have it, you’re screwed. I think Cishek is the best bet to put out fires, because he can get double plays and seems to have a rubber arm. Chavez needs to be able to go multiple innings if a starter horsefeathers up. St...

"I knew there was nobody at third, and the shortstop had to beat me to the bag at third base plus he had to catch the ball," Baez said. "As I was getting close to the bag, I saw his eyes go up and the pitcher was backing up. I just kept going because the ball, it went right between u...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

From the latest chat on Fangraphs: Lanny: Who will be the GM of the Orioles next year ? Kiley McDaniel: Sounds like the Duke Dang, I didn't know they'd hire our very own Duke Silver to be their next GM. Good luck bro. They really liked my presentation on how Mad Men gifs would lead us to redemption.

Re: Official apologize to Duke thread

Honestly, things are going well. Get Willson going and hope KB can contribute at a good level and the offense is unstoppable. Q, Jon, and Monty seem to be only mostly dead. I was really worried about Q's health, but he looks to be healthy enough to be a Game 4 starter, though it won't be pretty. I'm...
