I also feel like they should just go hurry up all the time instead of giving him time to think.

it was meant to mean that Eli was hugely disappointing his first 3 years in the fact that he was just...mediocre. Now, Eli won a couple of Super Bowls-some would even say despite the fact his team was quarterbacked by Eli Manning. He does have that above Mitchell. But in the end, my only real point...

Re: The Cardinals

Relying on Reyes for anything is an exercise in futility. That dude will likely not make it through a season healthy until he’s over 30. He’s the new Brandon Morrow.

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

He's fun to watch when he's on a roll, but he can't hit lefties, can't pinch hit, and needs to be replaced defensively in close games. He's a great option for being a DH/platoon OF in the AL. That all arguably applies to Castellanos, too, except against righties. I'd argue that there's a lot of unk...

Re: The Cardinals

The Cubs intentionally lost for half a decade so they could shed bad contracts, pick in the top 3 in the draft and stock up on international signings and money. It got them a WS, so they did it right. Good for them. Saying the Cardinals 2 month reorganization last year is anything close to that is ...

Those are some insanely rose colored glasses you're wearing. I'm also amused by the sudden faith in the team by many after a hot streak where they beat up on garbage teams. Living here as a Cubs fan is a weird deal.

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

It’s not bad but I could see rizzo looking at the deal goldschmidt got at 32 (5/130) and wanting that kind of security. I want to keep him but think he could indeed be pretty washed up in those age 35/36/37 years though. Outside of general inflation, Rizzo doesn't really deserve that kind of contra...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

I would see if he'd do something like 4/80 this offseason. He gets a raise over the next two option years and the Cubs can extend him without having to go into his later 30s. Why? He's not a guy who's likely to age well. Being done with him after the 2021 season seems like a pretty good time to par...
