Re: Mediocre has-been pitcher really doesn't like Machado

If the VB fans grow to hate Machado it might be more fun to get him.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Honestly Mueller has been at this for a while so I am confident that he has plenty of evidence to prove pretty much whatever he wants. (To say nothing of Trump continuing to do lots of corruption). Trump fans would never admit it but I don't count on them for anything. Trump can set up to rearrange ...

If we're reacquiring a former cubs second baseman I'd rather go with DJ Whittenhieu.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

checked out a preview of first man last night and it is really intense. the first 10 minutes of the movie is a masterclass in tension 101. special effects were great and the score was really good, too (best use of a theremin in a biopic!). not the biggest ryan gosling fan (he's got the dead-eye bla...

I too would like a super bullpen. Also need to fix the offense, no big deal for one off season, eh.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Reminder that being "torched" in November means they'll still control the White House, the Supreme Court, and almost certainly the Senate while having a narrow minority in the House. While that is true, having that one lever will make it feel a lot different than the past two years. Takin...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

I am enjoying these reunion stories. A lot of nostalgia and some regret looking back. My parents still live in the same house right next to the high school so it's always right there when I come home.

Also I know I'll be leaving the Chicagoland area in the next year or two. Life moves too fast.

So, what does everyone else want? Or do you prefer going after a 2B, and just figuring Bote, Zobrist, Zack Short, and whoever the 2B addition is, can handle things...... Man the Cubs have come a long way from 2015's "LOLOL, so many talented shortstops in the org, how will we ever fit them all ...

I won't argue that, but I want them both on the team next year (barring a trade, etc.).

I was just pushing back a bit on the idea that they should not pick up his option. Unless Theo's got something really good planned, I am sure we could use Cole next year too.

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

I'm still really high on Hamels. I think he's only had one really bad start for the Cubs (last start obviously). No one expected him to continue dominating with a sub-2 ERA. He's changed the way he's pitched since coming here and his fastball has ticked up. His changeup is still really nasty when h...
