because money is only mostly tight. The fiscal year has almost ended and if they don't spend it now it won't be made available next year

The Cubs operate on a Jan-Dec fiscal year?

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

It would be extremely difficult for a 1 loss ND team to even make a 8 team playoff. So it doesnt bother me that they dont play in a conference. I am pretty sure all B1G schools play 10 P5 games a yr. 9 conference and 1 non con. Prett sure its a rule I don't know if it's a rule but there were B1G te...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

An 8 team playoff is the most obvious thing ever. The five Power 5 champs, one G5 selection, and two at-large selections. I've said it a million times on this board and I'm convinced it would be glorious. You have the four quarter final games all on New Years Day. They can rotate access bowls. A hy...

He allowed an .862 OPS over his last 6 appearances during a must win stretch, including 2 blown saves (9 on the season). I'm sure he's a nice guy but that sucked.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It's funny that everyone just assumes the Cubs are some cash cow for the Ricketts family that throws off tons of cash on a yearly basis directly into their pockets. It would be very surprising if that was even remotely the reality. With that said, sign Harper. They're making money off of the team. ...

Bryce just needs to sign so we have something fun to talk about. Day 1 of the Winter Meetings in Vegas: Harper calls a press conference. Sits at a table with hats of the Phillies, Nats, Dodgers, Yankees in front of him. Says he has decided. Then, Anthony Rizzo appears, flips the table. Kris Bryant ...

Re: Luis Valbuena killed in car accident

Also, lmao at the NYT.
"Never a star, he contributed mostly off the bench. He hit 25 home runs for the Astros in 2015, and his best batting average was .260 the next year."

I demand a correction noting his 3.2 fWAR campaign in 2014.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I’m not sure how the 860 yards Ole Miss tacked up against Louisiana-Monroe is really relevant either. Counting total yards and ranking teams accordingly is beyond archaic. You’re already backing off with the SEC schedule caveat. Of course if you limited their offense to the ranked SEc teams they av...

Re: Cubs better start moving

If they're making $500 million in profit per year, they're a Fortune 500 company and one of the most profitable companies in the US. They would literally be THE most profitable Fortune 500 company. Not to mention the biggest bargain ever since the team was sold for ~$850m. Why stop at Bryce Harper?...
