Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

When did they start inviting Non All-Stars to be in the HR Derby? Are they really that desperate to find guys who want to do it?

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

When do we start to get concerned about Rizzo? The slumps are becoming more frequent, and when he slumps, he REALLY slumps. I don't know what his soft contact rate is, or where to even find such a thing, but it sure seems like he has more soft contact than anyone else in the Cubs lineup. He also has...

Yes and no. It is a color copy of the scorecard, but printed on a regular old sheet of legal paper.

There is no reason to ever NOT backdate a DL stint, so that really isn't encouraging in the slightest.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Just think how bad it would be if Lester / Yu / Q went down for the year with an injury. We have next to nothing to fill in (Butler and Monty don’t count). Why don't Butler and Montgomery count? Do you think other teams have extra rotation guys stockpiled and ready to replace top or middle-of-rotat...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

The tank is definitely on. The 10 teams with the current worst records all lost their last game. Of those 10 teams, there is an 8 game losing streak and three 7 game losing streaks. I certainly understand their motivation, but this can't be good for the league as a whole.

Re: Adieu Wahoo

Evidently, they're going to have to keep selling Wahoo paraphernalia in order to keep the trademark. The tweet from the Indians announcing the changes is full of pure gold. That sounds right. I know a new line of officially licensed Chief Illiniwek gear pops up from time to time for that same reason.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Now Trump wants the Senate to change the rules again to break the filibuster with a simple majority. When all else fails, just change the rules. You have to give it to Republicans, when something doesn't go their way there is no level they won't stoop to in order to ram it through.
