Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I will never forget where I was when Willson debuted with his first pitch dong to center against the Pirates. I yelled really really loud even though I was at a friend's place and his parents were sleeping. Then I came on here and typed in all caps that Theo wasn't giving us waves of players, but ra...

Re: Josh Hader

What in the hell? I stopped watching the game cause I had to go pick someone up from the airport. This is so random, absolutely not what I expected to see coming on here after the game. I do think it's ironic that Hader has been touted all year as this elite guy who is young and look he has long hai...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

So after the Cubs game tomorrow my family surprised me with tickets to Hamilton. I never thought I'd see it, but I'm thrilled that I did.

What a show, King George cracked me the hell up.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Way back in 2015 I suggested either he or Castro had to go.

They made the right choice, and I haven't suggested moving Javy since.

Re: RIP Anthony Bourdain

Re: 2017-2018 NHL season

Living in Maryland, I kind of enjoy their suffering. On the other hand, The Caps winning the Cup will really annoy Pens fans so either way I'm good. Most Pens fans will probably be annoyed by it, yeah. I don't care about the Caps winning it really, they're the team that knocked us out so its better...

The meme is gonna be the one with him holding his hands out and grimacing at JR.

The better picture is the one from behind lebron with him standing and pointing towards the basket and JR dribbling at him like a dumbfounded puppy.

I'm gonna go against the grain and predict you're actually a college student at Michigan State this time around. It's gonna be pretty boring, probably. Do you get to kill Larry Nassar?

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Heck, if I'm being fair ... I'm not so sure the Cubs future is necessarily better than the Nationals. I really love Soto, and a core of Soto/Robles/Turner/Rendon plus Scherzer/Strasburg in the short term, and an ownership that you know will spend ... is very, very tantalizing. Sure, KB/Rizzo/Contre...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Top 3 for us without looking has gotta be KB. Javy, and the third one I would honestly guess Schwarber.

Time to go check.

Edit: from what I see, replace Javy with Willson and you have your 1-2-3.

Still, our position player depth is silly.
