Ahaha I hadn't thought of that, but yeah, I think more of Happ and Candelario than I do of La Stella.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs

They rode him to one Stanley Cup forever ago, and Fleury has always struck me as being a guy whose performance issues after that were mental in nature.

Maybe having the job thrust upon him was a good thing, didn't have time to psyche himself out.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-21-17

Man it would be cool if Butler stays sharp at AAA and could be poised as a viable, desirable option for the Cubs to get on a decent mid-level contract for the next few years.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-19-17

I saw Burks twice last year. Seemed pretty solid, hit the ball well and made a few decent plays in the outfield.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs

The Pens are looking like they might have gotten hot at the right time again. I think the Jackets can win 1 here, but I can't see them taking this series much further than 5. Pretty excited about them playing either the Caps or the Leafs in the next round. I'll probably go to one of the games in DC ...

Re: Starling Marte suspended 80 games for PEDs

Needles are probably a lot harder to rationalize to oneself than a handful of pills.

But who am I kidding, these guys (the type to take PED's) don't care enough to have to rationalize anything to themselves.

Re: 4/15 Pirates (Some guy) @ World Series Champs (Arrieta) 1:20 CT CSN/670

Harrison and Cervelli are such gigantic toolbags. The level of arrogance from a team that consistently manages to be just good enough to be the first team out from the playoffs is hysterical.

You guys, after a massive amount of research and observation I've concluded that baseball is a ton more fun when we don't GIDP every time we get a baserunner. Back to you.

At this rate, Candelario and Happ as a package should be netting us someone like Quintana by themselves. These two are absolutely killing it.

Re: NBA 2016-17 Season

Look at the guy on the far right of the picture. You can only see half of him, but he is clearly wearing OKC orange and is praising the crap out of the sun while almost everyone else is in disbelief.

Re: The Cardinals

Good point, it's always funny when front offices and teams and fans are too full of themselves/their team to admit to easing off the "Gotta win now!" throttle.

But admittedly, it is kinda horsefeathers to tell fans "we ain't trying for it this year".

Haha the whole team looks like a bunch of badasses in the picture of them walking in. What a bunch of proud mugs.

I also had to check this thread title 3-4 times when it got hijacked by the United Airlines thing to make sure I hadn't been perusing the wrong one.

Yasmani is the one who made a big fuss about "EVERYONE STEALS OUR SIGNS" right?

Because every time we've gotten a guy on 2nd he has been out to the mound within 2 pitches.

Happ had a quote earlier this year about "working hard and making it a tough decision for the FO to think about him as a tradebait." Or something to that effect anyways. Seems like he is putting his money where his mouth is. I also remember someone speculating how he could become a young, ...
