Re: Cubs get Castellanos for Lange and Richan

The Ricketts quibbling over half a mill is some real looney tunes horsefeathers I’m honestly shocked we won a World Series with these owners in the first place, the way they’ve become Scrooge McDucks all of a sudden is dramatic The fact that we won a World Series with them is a good deal of why the...

Re: NL Central: Vaunted Defending Champion Brewers and others

Interesting article about Hard-R Hader's fastball and why no one can hit it, which is something I've been curious about for a long time.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Brian Anderson would be interesting. He’s 26, so he’s not “young” for a rebuilding team. Is a plus defender at 3B and OF. I’d do something like Almora (Jeets has to love him), Ademan, a Giambrone type and a pitcher we don’t really care about. If we just want someone to be a slightly above average b...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Can we stop trying to destroy the farm? I'd rather not have to wait the better part of a decade to be competitive again after 2021. Despite what the naysayers would have you believe, the Cubs are still in their "window" to win. If you can get some really good piece of the puzzle, and it r...

Excuse my ignorance, buy why can't someone who is way smarter than me just look at / maybe cut open one of the old balls and one of the new balls and tell us if there's juice in the new ones?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Now that I think about it, the comments about the Cubs potentially liking the FAs in 2020 better might be the truth. They may have decided in 2018 that they needed pitching, thought Harper/Machado would command too much this winter as an overcorrection to last offseason and/or for whatever reason w...
