Re: sometimes deck chairs need to be rearranged

https://twitter.com/MLBBruceLevine/status/1194660668789538817 This is a good hire IMO. I don't know what impact Justin Stone or Craig Breslow will have on this organization, but this could be big. I wasn't even aware this guy applied for the position. He was very highly regarded when he was in the ...

Re: 2020 roster

Our offseason would be so much easier if we could count on Happ to be a semi-solid option in CF for the whole season, but I'm not sure we can count on him and still be serious contenders. Why would the Cubs contending hinge on how much time Happ gets in CF? If he's a negative fWAR guy like our ever...

Re: Bears week 7: LAC @ CHI Sunday at noon on FOX

The latest story is Pineiro wanted the ball in the center of the field for that kick, and had it been in the middle of the field, he would have made it. Instead, it was hiked from the left hash mark and the ball went wide left. Herein lies the problem. Mr. Pineiro has basically just thrown Nagy und...

They had a manageable fg attempt to win the game. The team they were playing had won the super bowl a year prior, they weren’t facing the ny jets.

Re: Bears week 7: LAC @ CHI Sunday at noon on FOX

At least the Hicks injury crippled the defense so we can limp home to 6-10 instead of convincing ourselves we won't get housed in the first playoff game that requires 21+ points to win. to be fair, last year we failed in the playoffs because our kicker sucked and we knew that early on Also the offe...

Re: Theo Speak

When I left North Dakota after abandoning my job so that it could be eventually picked up by Da Bum, the landlord tried to get us for an extra carpet fee on top of the security deposit, sending a notice with a threat to file a lawsuit. I did a bunch of googling about North Dakota tenancy law, some ...

In addition to urine stains, the Epsteins also allegedly left the home with drywall holes, broken cabinet handles, a torn shower curtain, a ripped grill cover, and other damages.

There are only 30 manager jobs and if you don't want to disrupt your family by moving from New York, then yes, the Mets job is the perfect job for you.
