Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

It's almost funny how much they can shamelessly lie about this horsefeathers. They're basically saying it's so hard to make money at baseball (and it's so mean the city won't let them bilk it) that they have no choice but to do things like build hotels and restaurants (and raise ticket prices). I m...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

Actual baseball games are miserably boring. The only fun part is team-running, which we decided to pass on entirely this offseason. Unless you get to see Kyle Schwarber throw somebody out, which to be fair did happen 11 times last year Are you actually like this in non-online, real life? Inquiring ...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

The distributors insist on forcing cable providers to add single channel stations to basic cable? The Cubs network won’t be available a la carte according to Phil Rosenthal. I don’t see how that benefits Sinclair, considering what happened to Dodger games in recent years. Ad revenue to Sinclair is ...

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

I was thinking more what was said on the previous page, largely because it's something I've been worried about watching Rizzo last season. After his horrible April, in which he played hurt with a bad back and went on the DL/sat out. He hit .303/.393/.512 with a 139 wRC+, .380 wOBA, 24 Dongs, 11% BB...

Between April and September, there will be fewer posts about on-the-field performance, analysis, and potential transactions than there are about off-the-field player issues management, and player compensation.

Re: AAF 1st (only?) season

It won’t happen, but I would welcome professional leagues where the quality of play is better than NCAA. Especially if they’re made up of guys basically 18-24 that have legit chances of playing NFL/NBA. It was just their first games, so some of the play in the AAF was sloppy given that they hadn't ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

More to the actual topic, tying the DH to the starting pitcher takes care of everyone's concerns except the most ardent 'why don't we just have 9 designated fielders' weirdos. No pitchers hitting and you still get the late innings strategy. That also has the side effect of dis-incentivizing the ope...

He’s not good anymore but calling Tazawa “no-name” is making a strong case for bringing back the Sofa-doesn’t-pay-attention-to-any-other-teams meme.

I think they're hoping that when they accidentally get something right, they can parlay it into a real gig. That’s basically how Dierkes (spelling?) Got MLB Trade Rumors going I believe.

But Chelsea is the densest part of downtown and White Plains is quite a few suburbs separated from the city. If you live in like, Riverdale (Bronx) or Yonkers, it's pretty much the same thing.
