Re: Politics & Current Events

Why does it seem the racist accusations come from the coloring of an individual's perception? Trump is racist. Trump is not racist. All of this is so subjective. This is like a music forum. http://i0.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/facebook/000/004/130/bagdad-bob.jpg I mean, at this point the red flags y...

Re: Why Was z Montgomery Taken out So Soon?

But his pitch count was only 80! Such a low number brings shame to the franchise, and offends me personally.

This will be the unexpectedly fluke win to keep Glennon in there until the bye week, and make ownership think the team is closer than it really is.

Re: Despite Schwarber's Low BA do You Bring Him Back Next Year?

It amazes me the number of people who want to focus on a 35-ish game stretch in April and May while ignoring the entire rest of his career when evaluating Schwarber's bat. But there was a week where his batting average was .170! Such a number brimgs shame to the franchise, and offends me personally.

Kris Bryant is quietly creeping up the NL fWAR leaderboard, now 5th in the NL coming into today at 6.0 fWAR, behind Rendon (6.3), Blackmon (6.2), Stanton (6.1) and Votto (6.1).

Re: Tennis Thread

Three American women in the semifinals of the US Open (Venus Williams, Sloane Stephens, Coco Vandeweghe), and a 4th playing now that is the favorite to win her quarter (Madison Keys). Could be the first all-American semifinal since 2004, even more impressive since Serena Williams isn't one of them.

Re: Highland Park scraps tackle football

The base assumption that the better players will keep playing football is a faulty one, particularly around this area. Also, you said yourself that football is an expensive sport to sponsor and run, so theoretically as more and more players are encouraged to play less expensive sports (and far safer...

Re: Bears/NFL training camp opens

now i'm curious as to what the worst season has been by a guy with a very high OBP in a significant amount of plate appearances. i bet jose offerman is up there somewhere. i wish i could tag TT in this post since there's just about no chance he comes in here on his own http://www.fangraphs.com/lead...

Re: Highland Park scraps tackle football

The NFL is horsefeathering horrible. And the worst part about it is, as you said, the NFL spending decades lying about it and covering it up, when they could have been working on finding a way to change. I'm not sure how much it will even help, but new technology could help some, particularly as it...

Cubs are now 25-12 since the break. .676 or 109 win pace. Of those 12 losses, only twice did the Cubs not have the potential tying run bat in the 9th: - a 6-2 loss in Arizona where the Cubs scored 2 in the 9th and Zobrist struck out to end the game with runners on first and third. - a 11-4 loss to ...

Put another way, if I had to build a 25 man roster for this year's postseason based on the combined current rosters of the Cubs and Cards, it'd probably be 24 Cubs and Carlos Martinez.
