Re: Politics & Current Events

the real question is how conservative would the republican nominee have to be before you voted for Zuckerberg. If it was Zuckerberg vs a GWB clone, are you stuck with Zuck? he may want to steer clear of that slogan. That would be the worst i would have ever felt about voting for a democrat. There i...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I can't stop watching this slide. It's hypnotic.

An underrated part is when he turns to the ump and says something -- I believe, "Safe!" -- to him while still sliding. You can see it pretty well in the gif Tim posted.

Yep. I'll always love the man for what he did in that game. 55 pitches on 2 days rest.

2.02 ERA in the playoffs. Cubs won 5 of 6 games he pitched in. 8 shutout innings to out-duel Cueto in the NLDS. He's a legend.

They have a half game lead over a team that's rebuilding


Yep. They are ahead of teams with less talent than them. They are the best team in the division.

And acting like losing Jon Lester is going to be the death knell is silly when he's had a 4.37 ERA this year and the Cubs...
