Re: Politics & Current Events

Disinformation campaigns are the things that are malicious. This guy creates (bad) satire and exploits idiots who share it for profit while his liberal followers turn it around and shame those same people for sharing fake stories on the internet. He's baiting the morons and then shaming them for fa...

Re: Is there a sports cards discussion?

This thread is timely, I was going through some keepsakes and found one of the few cards I kept, a 1996 Topps Stars Jordan atomic refractor. It looks like it held its value pretty well from when I'd pore through Beckett every month, depending on the grade it looks like I could get anywhere from $200...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

The Indians also have similar concerns as the White Sox do as to how much the bottom can fall out of attendance(they won 90+ games and were 21st in attendance, outdrawn by the likes of Minnesota and San Diego), that might inform how they would want a trade return to look like.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I haven't read a lot of the specifics, but it sounds like the big lever is that they're trying to better negotiate in-market streaming and similar stuff with RSNs across the league, and that probably has a far bigger impact on the TV deal.

Setting aside everything else, Mexico City is 2000 feet higher in elevation than Denver. It would barely be the same sport.

If the Mariners are tearing it down, why would they trade for an arb eligible headliner in Schwarber? Especially for Diaz, who would garner tons of interest and Seattle could define the shape of the return.

Elevate Nancy to VP? Standard procedure for the highest ranking senator. Wasn’t this House of Cards season 2 or 3’s premise? Not exactly, my recollection is Underwood pulls strings to convince the sitting VP he'd be happier and more influential running for governor of his home state(which has a dem...

Not the 2027 Cubs even. Try the Cubs in three years when they hope to sign Bryant and maybe Baez and others and they have $80 million wrapped up in three players already. Sure, I suppose they can worry about that then. 3 years from now you're talking about essentially a different franchise. Bryant,...

Again, the Cubs aren't poor. But there is a huge difference between making two moves to essentially pay Cole Hamels $13 million for one year and signing somebody for $400 million plus over 14. "somebody" And that difference is more or less inconsequential unless you think Harper is bad(no...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Playing some devil's advocate... The Cubs philosophy since Theo took over has been to develop position players, and to pay for pitching. I wonder if they decided they had to keep doing that? Trust that the guys on the offense that have struggled can play up to their potential, and continue to pay f...

There is a part of me that enjoys trying to brainstorm how to optimize the roster given constraints, team building has always been a fun puzzle in that way for me. The Dodgers especially have shown the benefit of not being slave to free agency to find really good production(Turner, Muncy, Hill, etc)...

Beto's in a similar position to Kander, right? A higher national profile at this point, but Kander has mostly worked on voting rights stuff since losing his senate race(ugh, Blunt and Hawley are my senators now) AFAIK.

Yeah, Russell is very obviously never playing another inning for the Cubs. There's worthy debate as to whether it's moral to try to maximize his value in the meantime(and whether it's legal to simply release him/non-tender him in the other direction), but he's done in Chicago. This post will self-de...
