Re: Bat Flip Thread

The flip was perfect, it sounded gone off the bat but when I saw the flip I knew it was gone.

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

I'm rooting for Q to have great success. He gets dogged for a trade he didn't make, against guys who haven't even played in the bigs yet. Forget the horsefeathering stupid white sox. I am sure Q is happy to be gone from that miserable organization. They never gave him any run support there anyway.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I know RBIs are dumb but I still want Javy to get like 130 of them. He's really becoming Manny-esque at the plate. Manny Ramirez had a 14% career walk rate. Yeah, Manny isn't the best comp but Joe uses it and was just being lazy. I was always worried about his bust potential as a hitter but he's re...

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

Love me some Cole Hamels, that muh can pitch It was awesome watching him yesterday, such a pro. Stark contrast to the anxiety-filled meltdowns we got from Chatwood. You figure Cole is energized going to a contender and my guess is going for one more contract? Looks to me like he's got something lef...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

The main thing that bothered me about that whole ARod rant is that it made it sound like the Cubs passed on trying to resign Arrieta in favor of Darvish, when multiple sources - including Arrieta himself - have said that the Cubs offered Arrieta significantly more in guaranteed money than he ended ...

Re: Cubs Acquire Brandon Kintzler for Minor Leaguer Jhon Romero

Yeah, I understand that we used up all our resources on guys who ended up being meh like Quintana and Darvish so we are just kind of stuck with it. Still sucks today though. I really thought starting pitching was going to be the strength of this team this year. They need to find a way to acquire a ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Seems crazy that the Cardinals wouldn't trade at least Bud Norris too. Probably one of their square-peg/round-hole position players as well (Jose Martinez).

I was recently in Denver and went out in LODO after a rockies game and there was a guy at the bar with a 100% pure bread WOLF as an emotional support animal.

How dumb am I that I hope Harper signs elsewhere and the Cubs use the ~$350MM to address other holes and extend current players? That could get you 9 Tyler Chatwoods!

If they don't appreciate and value the blank expression of Mike Matheny then you should just tender your resignation immediately.

i just retweeted that Craig Edwards gem and he blocked me before I could blink. Solid job with that hire Fangraphs. Unfortunate. That means you missed this gem. https://twitter.com/craigjedwards/status/1018524802041212928 He's such a passive aggressive turd. He just refuses to accept the obvious.
