Re: RE: Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

Imagine trying to convince the version of yourself from the beginning of 2016 that the Cubs would not only win the WS that year, but that barely 2 years later we'd be at this point, despite the WS-winning team and FO mostly intact. I was just thinking about that last night. If you told me the Cubs ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

MLB off-season is the worst. Free agency in the other major sports is largely resolved within a few weeks, but in baseball we have to put up with months of posturing and non-activity. There is no more hot stove. There is only a lukewarm tub of bathwater, while team owners count their growing piles o...

Re: RE: Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Man, horsefeathers the Ricketts if this doesn't happen. Tom Ricketts puts a friendly public face to ownership that makes it appear like the team is being run by a baseball-first family business, but the reality is they are in it for the money (which they unfortunately spend on some very questionabl...

One of the problems that a lot of people like myself — we have very high levels of intelligence, but we’re not necessarily such believers.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Checking on the Senate races yet to be called, it looks like they are all likely to go Republican. As much as I hate to say it, Republicans came out on top yesterday. They won basically every close Senate race, which was pretty much their best case scenario. The results also reinforced Trump's influ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Why are teams going to be inclined to get a trade done sooner if the Cubs are strapped for cash? Like, who is that going to rush along outside of teams trying to swap bad contracts? I just don't get the people who are so adamant why this is some kind if elaborate ruse when there's little to no adva...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Seems to me like the Cubs window is quickly shutting I know, we might only win 92 games next year if we bring back largely the same team with some tweaks.* (Obviously we should be adding more, I’m not saying I’m fine with this)* On one hand, you can argue that this team can and should make the play...

I don't want Kavanaugh anywhere near the Supreme Court, and I think he could be disqualified for numerous reasons, but I struggle with the Ford accusation because I don't see any way for it to be proven or disproven.

This actually makes me slightly more optimistic for next year that they found something wrong outside of the stress reaction.

Re: homophobe, incoming

Following this disaster of a season for Washington, does Dave Martinez even make it through next year? It seems that he may be in over his head as a manager, and based on his interview history I suspect that many other teams had already come to that same conclusion.
