Re: Funniest heckles you have heard at baseball games

Yeah, you're literally standing right over the opposing team's bullpen. You aren't allowed to hang out there though, there are ushers making sure you move along and signs everywhere marking it as a "no standing zone".

Re: Kyle Hendricks: Somehow Greg Maddux

Kyle Hendricks is my favorite starting pitcher on the team. Easy choice.

Favorite pitcher overall is probably Carls Jr.

Re: Food Monstrosities

Mcgangbang's are great. You get a mcdouble and a mcChicken, used to be both off the dollar menu, but now it's from the mc-pick 2 for 2.50. You separate the mcdouble inbetween the two burger patties and insert the entire mcChicken, bun and all. Put the top half of the mcdouble back on and voila, a mc...

I can't wait for the playoffs to get rolling. Stanley Cup season is always awesome and exciting.

Feeling pretty good about the Pens regardless of who they have to face in round 1.

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #31)

I had been having a few beers during game 7 and watching with some family, but when davis hit his homer I left them and went to watch by myself. Well, myself and a half handle of vodka that I made disappear between the bottom of the 8th and the rain delay. It was fun running around my neighborhood w...

Re: 2017 Spring Training Game Thread

Yeah, the more I see him hit the more I feel like he would be a fun guy to have around. But his bat will definitely play and I bet the FO turns him into something we need, which is fine by me too.

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #71)

That's the first time I can remember him getting hyped up in 2016. ,

Last year (2015) later in the season he and Baez made a play at 2nd to finish the game against the Cardinals and he was fist pumping and shouting with Javy. That was the first time I ever saw him do it.

Re: Pitchers and Catchers to report on...

Wow. I'm on my phone so I can't like it, but if your proposed plan is how the Cubs handle our backstops this year I will be thrilled. Contreras really made it easy to like him last year, didn't he? My favorite regular season moment was him hitting his debut homerun, then having to run out and catch ...

It's awesome how this FO has quietly and effectively eliminated visible weaknesses this offseason.

So I live in Frederick, MD, which is where the Orioles' A+ team plays. I can get a ticket package deal where I pick and choose 10 home games to go see. Realistically, I'm mostly interested in seeing Eloy when the MB Pelicans are in town, which happens 10 times this season. Is it worth it to get the ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Top Prospects Lists (BA, BP, Sickels, etc)

I fully expect Eloy to be AA by some point this season and AAA maybe pushing the majors by late 2018 if he keeps hitting. Seems like a freaking monster.

That's just my incredibly uneducated prediction though.

Re: Cubs Offseason Top Prospects Lists (BA, BP, Sickels, etc)

I'm becoming more and more pleased that we held onto Eloy instead of Gleyber. I doubt if the Yankees actually had their choice between the two though.

I'm super excited to see Eloy join this team and demolish everything one day.
