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

smart plan. hopefully, he doesn't get stuck in the traffic and miss his appointments. Please explain this. based off of twitter, it seems a lot of chicago sports radio talk is saying parkey didn't want to spend the extra time driving into soldier field to practice a couple times a week. In earnest?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Sullivan had this Theo quote in his article today.... A report in The Athletic suggested they have an “artificial salary cap” of $246 million, which Epstein strenuously denied. “We definitely don’t have any artificial limitations,” he said. ".... just real limitations, which in our case is $24...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Sharma in his latest article says that the payroll limit is 246, and that we chose to keep Hamels because Chatwood and Darvish were such busts. Still not sure I buy it, but that's what he's putting out there. He also implied that the Cubs winning one WS in this stretch would make them similar to th...

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

The staff suddenly becomes intriguing with the rotation now set at Hendricks, Yu, Lester, Q, and Hamels. The pen dynamic is... interesting even before considering guys like Webster, Maples, Mekkes, and Alozay. Late inning/firemen Morrow (9) Strop (6.25) Cishek (6.5) CJ (arb) Swing/spot starters Mont...

Northwestern is 12-1 in its last 13 conference games. The one loss was the blown lead to Michigan this season. I approve.

I really hate the idea of trading Schwarber.

2015 David Ross would be an improvement. Vic isn't a good defensive catcher and also can't hit. It would be nice to have a backup C that's decent to good at one of those.
