Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

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: The Mock Off Season Thread

I don't want to trade future MVP Addison Russell just quite yet. Feels like we'd be selling low.

Oh yeah, there are other reasons but as much as Iove Joe I hope he stays away. Hillary blowing it last year will always sting, I think both Bernie and Joe would have taken out Trump.

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.

I don’t know about any of you, but on the day Trump finally does resign or is impeached I’m watching Hannity. He may just melt into gelatinous mass right on camera. Nah. He'll be, "Yeah, I saw this coming this whole time" like majority of Rs and Trump fan base will and move on to somethin...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Everything I'm reading on twitter now if focused on the GOP paving the way for Trump to fire Mueller. What a nightmare, the only way things can really get better is if the Dems are able to flip the House in 2018. It'll take a lot of work but I hope to think Trump's chaos presidency is turning off a ...

Yeah every time I get excited about the thought of Trump resigning or getting impeached, I'm reminded that there is in many ways a worse choice right behind him. Sure we are less likely to get nuked with Pence in charge, but with someone competent going after our civil liberties, he has a much bett...

Re: Harvey Weinstein and the sweet sweet can

House of Cards canned not exactly they just said this upcoming season will be their last, but it's going to air in 2018 and was on its last legs a couple seasons ago anyway All true, but pretty coincidental timing, less than 12 hours after this Spacey thing came out.

I hear that Girardi works better with vets rather than young players, so that could be part of it.

You'd think that would make him a good fit for the Nats. I don't want to see the Nats with competent managing.

Re: world series poll

I want the Astros to win not because the Dodgers eliminated the Cubs, but rather I like having NL bragging rights for most recent WS win.

Also, Dodger fans are subhuman and do not deserve joy.

Nice post TT. The vaunted Brewers "scare" me more than the Cardinals. Anything can happen but I feel very, very good about the Cubs chances to control the division for at least the next 4 seasons.

I must be the only person who doesn't mind people being called out for coming off the bag if only for a split second during a slide. Find a way to stay in contact and you're always taught to keep the tag applied.

Re: The Cardinals

They are so incredibly loyal to matheney and I couldn't be happier. That front office is absurdly conservative. Their farm system continues to produce uselful players but they seem to go out of their way to avoid acquiring a real impact player. I too would be throwing a fit.

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

I could see a case being made for the division series to be 7 games instead of 5 but overall I think they're pretty much perfect. I love the wildcard games.
