Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

I'm wondering as a Bulls fan if I want them to go after Malcolm Brogdan. I'm intrigued by his stats and what I've seen in interviews. Seems like a really intelligent/respected/high character player. Mil has to re-sign Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and maybe Brogdan at the right price. They already ga...

I got 96% for Elizabeth Warren as my top choice and 95% for Bernie and Julian Castro. Pretty happy with my results

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

As a thought exercise, how many good managers were good pitching coaches before that? I'm struggling to think of even one. Yeah, I agree. I had problems thinking of one, but how many pitching coaches get the chance to be a manager? I mean Mickey Callaway is a horsefeathering disaster but that shoul...

Re: 2019 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread


I'm glad he got paid close to slot value for the #1 overall pick. Totally deserves it and becomes the best C prospect in the minors (it's not even close).

Re: College Baseball (Multiple Seasons)

holy crap, talking heads on ESPN are acting like Vandy is this little engine that could in the big bad SEC. Vandy is the freaking Yankees or Dodgers of college baseball. Every other team in the SEC (and every other public university) can only give 11.7 scholarships to be divided among the entire ro...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-24-19

Robel bomb #19 (including the 6 AA bombs). This one went 438 happy feet. Please phantom IL Descalso already. I've seen enough of Descalso too. He looks just as bad watching him with my own two eyes in a live game as he does on TV. Banish him, release him, excommunicate him... I don't care at this p...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

How did the Cubs ever let Derek Johnson get away? Look what he’s done with Cincinnati’s pitching this year Losing him was a massive blow. I hope he’s the #1 choice to become the next manager when Joe is gone. I read his book on pitching philosophy and I really like Derek Johnson, but I'm not all-in...

Re: Minor League Musings

From the latest Klaw chat: M: Adbert Alzolay had a really nice debut last night. Can he stick around with the big league team this year? Keith Law: Yes. The bigger question is whether his improved FB command and better CB are enough to let him get lefties out three times through an order. If not, he...

Re: 2019 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

https://twitter.com/jimcallisMLB/status/1142102438239002628 I wish the Cubs had drafted this pitcher and fast-tracked him as a reliever. He was dominant as a reliever and really sucked as a starter. I think he could be ready by late 2020/early 2021 if he returns to the dominant form he showed as a ...

https://twitter.com/mj_ernst/status/1142263094577643521 It seems like Mekkes is throwing harder and hitting 95 more consistently now. Great news if he can reach back and throw that hard. He's a big dude (6'7") and it always seemed like he should be able to reach mid-90s with the fastball. Hope...

I don't think granting statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico is "full bore socialism", but I do know McConnell is a full bore horsefeathers.

A really crappy soft-tossing LHP the Cubs called up at the end of the season (2006). I barely remember him, but he pitched one gutsy game against the Astros. There's no shame in not remembering this guy lol.
