Re: Politics & Current Events

He was the single alternative to Hilary Clinton (who the DNC was trying to run unopposed, but Sanders grass-rooted his way into the race). Now there are plenty of progressive, liberal candidates, most of whom are better options than Sanders. Why settle for the 73 year old white progressive dude whe...

Re: 2019 is Jason Heyward fixed thread

I’d love for him to opt out before the fixed baseballs turn him back into a pumpkin Lately I've thought that maybe he is now comfortable with the Cubs and his contract and simply doesn't GAF and is going to be this kind of player (the player we thought we were getting) for the rest of his contract....

Re: 2019 is Jason Heyward fixed thread

Even though he'd get $10 mil in deferred signing bonus if he opts out, I think he'd be crazy to do it. Nobody is giving him 4/$76 given how free agency has gone the past couple of years. I thought his second opt out was after year 5 of the deal (2020) but that doesn't appear to be the case. Anyway s...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't think there is much Trump can do to try to remain in office unless we have a replay of the 2000 election. The bigger fear, I think, is that he has a call to arms with all the Right Wing militia types. I can see a bunch of MAGA gun nuts intimidating people at polling places in Left leaning d...

I could see him attacking another country if he loses the election. Then trying to impose Martial Law, whatever, etc.

Literally nothing is off the table when it comes to this guy, and he will be *desperate* to stay in power. That's all I'm saying.
