Luis Valbuena returned my cheer and Lo Viste from the stands with a Lo Viste. One of the highlights of the 2014 season.

I was so excited when we got Heyward that I immediately bought his jersey. God damnit.

Based on what I've seen from Sullivan, fashion is probably the last thing that he should be critiquing.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Is homie rocking some Pradas? Also, that's the closest to an in-focus shot Gordon has ever tweeted. And I think it's heavily optically zoomed in, too. digitally you mean? unless he's got one of fancy newfangled optical zoom phones Yes, I meant digitally. There's no way he owns an optical zoom phone.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The love for Starlin wasn't unwarranted. He was putting up 3 WAR seasons at 22 and was racking up hits as a SS with good raw defensive tools (albeit real flaws, as well). There was a not-that-unreasonable belief that he'd get close to 1,000 hits before turning 25, which would have been pretty except...

Just finished reading Passan’s The Arm and now look forward to Future Cub Trevor Bauer. Currently he is in Arb 2 of 4 with a $1.225 gap between his number and what the Indians offered, the only Indians player going to arb this year.
