Re: Moving

Yeah, I moved from Chicago to LA and just took what I could fit in my car. Been AirBnBing it until I found a job and my apartment was ready. Fun to live in different neighborhoods but it'll feel good to put down some roots. Moving 100% sucks. You have to account for every damn thing in your life, li...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Right now they are throwing horsefeathers against the wall to see what sticks. Impeachment and removal is over 50% in one the latest polls. If the GOP was smart they’d dump Trump now. He’s behind in high single digits and double digits in WI, MN, and MI. I really don't see how it would be political...

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I think I'm kind of sold on Ross. He's buddies with these guys but also has no problem being a hardass when necessary. Feels like we've gotten so sloppy since 2016, maybe he's the right guy to tighten it up. Also I think will work well with Theo. As much as it annoyed me when we had to take him with...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Now that the dam is breaking, I’ve had the sobering thought that these guys just aren’t going to stop. They’re all horsefeathers anyway, why not just say horsefeathers you and horsefeathers the rules? Trump, pence, Barr and Pompeo should absolutely resign. They’re all going to have to be dragged out...

Re: 2020 roster

Not bad. Send descalso into the sun with Russell and get another OF for the bench. Hoerner, Bote and Happ should be more than sufficient as backup IFers.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Even without all these extra stories (Pompeo, NRA), Ukraine feels like the one that broke the dam.

Trump has always acted like a lame duck but we're really going to see some historic craziness over the next 15 months.

They wouldn't do it because 1) Many of them agree with him 2) They would be primaried to hell and back 3) it would place them seriously behind in organization and fundraising for 2020, as well as put a major stain on the party for said election. To your points 1) they agree with him politically but...

Re: Impeach The Ricketts

I don’t like them politically but they’ve been pretty great about spending money. The team and ballpark are in the best shape of my life. They spend but don’t mettle in the baseball side of things at all.

This is an important offseason though.

Re: Who gets traded in the offseason?

Think it has to be Contreras. Would love to deal him for a good starting pitcher. I think that is need #1. Not sure you could get that for Schwarber.

I also hope Almora and Russell are gone dealt, and maybe Happ too.

Re: Next Chicago Team To Win a Championship?

It's probably still the Cubs.

Bears potentially have a shot this year with that defense but I don't trust Mitch or Nagy.

I've always thought the Blackhawks might get one more but they've made so many terrible moves it seems unlikely.

Bulls are light years away.

The Cubs are definitely Jim once you watch the show enough. Likable and pathetic in the early seasons, peaked in like season 3, and then slowly revealed himself to be the huge horsefeathers that, looking back, he kinda always was. Right now they're in "bought his parents house for them to live...
