Re: The Cardinals

Derrick Goold made a thing out of it too... Throughout the series, the Cardinals had reminded the home-plate umpires that they “had to have the plate” with Rizzo at bat. Rizzo, the notorious HBP, is famous for leaning over the plate, and he has the bruises and league-leading 23 hit by pitches to pr...

He is our ace. He has been since the day this thread was created. He will continue being our ace for the next two decades. Not even my curse can take him down. He is immortal. He's Somehow Greg Maddux.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Kris Bryant is quietly creeping up the NL fWAR leaderboard, now 5th in the NL coming into today at 6.0 fWAR, behind Rendon (6.3), Blackmon (6.2), Stanton (6.1) and Votto (6.1). 3rd in the NL after that game. Hot on Rendon's and Votto's heels. He's going to finish the year as the most valuable playe...

I have no doubt the FO is figuring out every angle to get this done. But get it horsefeathering done Theo, whether it's a promise to rip up his measly contract within a year and give him a $100-200 million new contract, access to a secret TD Ameritrade account set up by Ricketts with millions in it...

Re: Kyle Hendricks: Somehow Greg Maddux

Never ever ever give pitchers guaranteed money and years when you don't have to. That's how Hendricks becomes a hall of famer for the braves. And I will blame you. and duke. Kyle is immune from my curse. He's the only one. Probably a good reason to lock him up. Then I can just write every article a...

Re: Do You Like the Wilson/Avila for Candelario/Paredes Trade For The Cubs?

I seem to recall Avila hitting a walk-off two-run single and also hitting a 9th inning RBI triple to drive in the only run of a game. If the race stays this tight, his presence on the team after Willson went down looks pretty valuable.

i dont care about the guys we gave up, i care that the guy we got back has been a net negative and might not even make the playoff roster when the same pieces could have brought back someone who could throw a strike once or twice a week We also got back a guy who ended up being our starting catcher...

Didn't the '69 Cubs blow like a 12-game lead and finish 10 games back? So far, this team performed below expectations for most of the season and then were swept in one series on a weekend in early September. There's been no collapse yet. We're still in first.
