Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Sorry if posted elsewhere, but the Cubs are the first defending WS Champs ever to not send a returning player to the ASG.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Well, Miggy. Thanks for the NLCS Grand Slam and game winning RBI in game 7 of the World Series, but you really f-ed up. Happy trails.

Damn, my powers couldn't save him. Wonder if we'll see Contreras in the OF for a game or two.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

In all honesty, is it the craziest idea? It's easy to forgot how little MLB experience he actually has. I think we can live with an OF of Happ/Almora/Heyward/Jay/Zobrist for a bit.

It appears Schwarber is the clear winner. If any mods want to go ahead and change it, feel free.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

MLB network Yeah, no. The World Series was broadcast on Fox and Fox alone in America. The only way you got Vasgersian was in Canada or an MLB International feed.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Say what you will about Matt Vasgersian, the dude knows how to heighten the excitement and drama of a postseason home run. I'll say that he's way over the top and sounds like nails on a chalkboard. What an odd take. "Way over the top" for a clutch home run in the postseason? Hmm ok I appr...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Rizzo and Wood are the only holdovers from 2012 after Castro and Valbuena were traded away. 2013 was Rondon's Rule 5 year, along with Arrieta, Strop, and Grimm mid-season. I was looking at different Cubs rosters & stats the other day. The 2013 team really blew my mind, it was just weird seeing ...

Re: World Series Swag Thread

I live in Minnesota (never updated my location) and visited the Mall of America today. Every hat store (there are like 4 Lids') had the WS Champion hats and Champs had a limited selection of shirts. I picked up a hat and the grey trophy shirt.
