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: Technology Chit-Chat

This is probably a super dumb question and I think I already know that the answer is yes but wanted to double check. If I buy a gaming monitor and I just hook up a Roku or Firestick to it for TV watching purposes, that will work with no issues right? And downsides I'm not thinking of? It's just an e...

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 ...

Re: The Cardinals

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.

Why Wendy's isn't winning this conversation/debate is beyond me. That spicy chicken is far and away the best fast food chicke sandwich and it's not particularly close. CFA is hot garbage both ethically and taste wise.

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...

I can't really complain about my gf's TV watching. She's willing to watch sports and the Jessica Jones/Punisher etc. with me.

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

There's a reply somewhere in the Cerami thread about how his walk and K rates are noticeably higher with RISP meaning pitchers are pitching around him almost every time he's in that situation. Probably a combination of him not getting nearly as many pitches to hit and him expanding the zone to get t...

I feel like the tantrum and ejection of Maddon today was premeditated lol. Then again, Clint Hurdle is an horsefeathers and I've hated him since 2015. Maybe Maddon feels the same way about Hurdle, and all this losing pushed him over the edge. I'd guarantee Maddon hates red assed Hurdle. One enjoys ...

Though, seriously; would it kill Heyward and Almora for them to both be just...fine at the same time for once instead of one temporarily kicking ass and the other being catastrophically bad?
