Re: The Cardinals

With Molina catching, Cardinals pitchers's NL rankings are 10th in FIP and 9th in WAR with below average framing to boot. He's literally been a negative to their staff. The defensive plus rating which you referenced is 29th in baseball behind defensive wunderkind Victor Caratini How much do you wan...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

Once we won in 2016, That game and that series ceased to carry any pain with it/them anymore. I'm just more embarrassed about my reaction to it. Right? I was in a deep funk all winter, just brutal. The ensuing baseball seasons didn't help matters either. Boston, White Sox, Cardinals? :barf: But 201...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

He has 2, $14.5 million team options left. He’d be signing a 2/51 extension essentially while getting his options guaranteed. Idk, that seems pretty fair. For a guy who’d have to wait until he’s on the wrong side of 30 (he’ll be 32 as a FA and turns 33 during the year of his first FA year) and play...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

I don’t understand the willingness to just move schwarber to first base. He’s never played it as far as I know and it’s not terribly easy to pick up. Having a bad defensive first baseman is excruciating, just ask the cardinals about the Jose Martinez experience. I do like the 2 year extension to th...

Re: Wife’s TV watching habits

My tv diet is atrocious. Terrible movies I have seen tons of times, Pti & first take, etc and live sports.

To be fair I’m half watching most of the time but I definitely identify with your wife.

God I hate Jason Benetti. Always crying over balls and strikes. Such a small baby of a person. He makes me hate the Sox; at least hawk was entertaining in his belly aching.

Bellenger, Muncy, Joc, Yelich, Freeman, Bryce, etc. All guys I would expect the Cubs to face in the playoffs.

I saw this but I never did anything about the breach. Should I just make up stuff like getting a new debit card, etc?

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....
