Re: The Cardinals

A girl I was friends with in high school married that cardinals blogger mentioned above. It has taken a lot of restraint not to mock her and him in her facebook posts. I actually like her a lot and wouldn't do that, but it does bother me she married a huge cardinals homer/shill. He's also an Iowa fa...

Re: Politics & Current Events

There is zero doubt that Trump's base will love the "$hithole" comment.

To say nothing that most of them are from $hitholes themselves, but I digress........

I hate GARPAX as much as anyone but this Bulls team is fun as hell to watch. I can't believe I'm saying that; and they could actually get better when Levine suits up!

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

I wonder how Rizzo feels about that Jason Heyward contract. I've always wonderered how he's felt about his deal turning out super-team friendly, but if there's any bitterness he seems to be hiding it well. But might also be why he seems unable to say no sponsoring things. (Not that there's anything...

Re: Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

Feels like a great trade for the Cardinals. Alcantara figures to be a reliever, no? Was hoping they'd have to give up one their young starters.

That hand drawn Swastika could have been drawn on the back of that guy's neck while he was passed out drunk. If I was a ball player, I'd avoid a town where people draw swastikas on each other for fun. Until something drastically changes, they only way they'll get any decent FA is by overpaying like...

debrincat looks like a star, but that seabrook extension was crushing I'm not sure it's crushing. It might have been had Hossa not gone on LTIR. There are worse D men making the same same as Seabrook. With reduced minutes he hasn't looked that bad if you weren't comparing him to what he used to be....

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

Illinois got hosed last night; I had forgot what a joke it is to play on the road in college basketball.

Defense looked like a problem, though. Hopefully Underwood can coach them up in that regard.

Or they punt on this mediocre class and look at 2019 (Melo, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker) And if they don't have an AS, oh well. Is it really that big of a deal? Ideally you'd like one when you host but its happened before (Denver in 2005, Atlanta in 2003) Is there another melo or is the famous one ...

Re: Should The Cubs "Punt" FA This Off-Season?

I'm not ready to trade any of the young guys (unless it's a great offer), so I'm cool with singing an Alex Cobb-type and then rebuilding the bullpen.

Needs will pop up during the season and I also hope they plan on making a big push for Harper next year.
