Re: Cutch is not a Cub

3/50, wow. I would’ve been fine with 2 years and like ~$25 mil for him and shipping Albert’s bum ass out. But 3/50, seems like a decent sized overpay. Somewhat surprisingly, it likely isn't (according to FG). Yeah, that's like 6ish WAR over the life of the deal, so he'll probably even live up to it.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I remember when the cheap and evil Ricketts paid $600 million for the Wrigley renovations out of their pockets instead of using public money. I also remember when the Cubs had the highest payroll in the NL last season. Go root for the Reds if you think the Cubs are cheap. How much of a kiss-ass to ...

Re: Beer Thread 2.0

Meanwhile, I'm just glad to enjoy my Belgian Trappist beers... I don't really get the point of these limited run, specially aged, ridiculously expensive beers.

How much are they when you get them on Black Friday vs. a shopowner who might stash them and sell one later on in the year?

Re: Jim Hickey stepping down for personal reasons

Nah, I don't think it's a cover. With as weird as they've been about this, I definitely think it was something that they knew was probably coming, and was a legit personal situation. If they were just letting him save face, they would've done it at the same time as the other coaches. Agreed, I'm su...

Re: Week 11: Vikings at Chicago Sunday night on NBC

Interesting game. Obviously thrilled the Bears won and the Vikings are a solid defense so I didn’t expect 150+ QB rating Mitch tonight. He was very shaky at times but also seemed to make plays when the bears needed him most which is awesome It’s amazing the difference having a QB who can throw the ...

I've never really considered volunteering in that manner. If I were to, best bang for my buck would be at the state and county level. I'm not in a competitive US house district (D).

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

A slightly different take on a previous offseason post: 1) Sign Harper 2) re-up Hamels, Quintana & Strop 3) Shoot Duensing & Chatwood to the moon 4) Resign Chavez 5) Trade Happ + Russell + Kintzler for Pivetta + Neris after Philly whiffs on both Harper and Machado 6) Sign Asdrubal Cabrera O...

We have way too many states, it feels like a waste of resources. 20-25 seems more than adequate. https://frinkiac.com/video/S04E19/gtVig4OCHygA0aoB3HaDcx-gZl0=.gif And I bet ole Grandpa Simpson and I would agree on the first state to get the heave ho too! https://external-preview.redd.it/Xi-z6lSrvK...
