Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It’s tough for me to see it being Jake because at worst he’s probably looking at 3/55 and probably will end up around 4/85. That’s still a lot especially since he hasn’t made a ton in his career. Moustakas was my guess because he actually isn’t very good and I could see him having only 1 year deals...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

and what's with him hitting off a tee, a 6 year old can do that but I know Kyle can hit 95 mph fastballs That's... not the same thing. If Kyle is deadlifting 135lbs, he's doing 100 reps. The point was that someone had one second to show him weightlifting in a video and chose an unimpressive weight....

I generally love this kind of soft stuff but showing Kyle single-repping a 135 hexbar deadlift in a "he's-in-shape" video when he can probably get closer to 600 is hilarious. and what's with him hitting off a tee, a 6 year old can do that but I know Kyle can hit 95 mph fastballs That's......

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I am not sure Jake is going to get more than Darvish but i think Jake has not given signs of coming down from his asking price and Darvish may have. That is why the Cubs are after Darvish now IMO. I think Darvish is the better pitcher going forward so if it were me i sign Darvish. I still haven't s...

I also love this one, in that he's gone at the 50. The taunt and high step is also so good -- and his second of the game, too.

In retrospect, we really overlooked the "Japanese weirdos love Disneyland" angle.

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood

Hmm...sorry my first thought is how this relates to Ohtani. I wonder if its now an Ohtani or Cobb situation instead of Ohtani and Cobb, unless they are willing to commit to a full time 6 man rotation if Ohtani were to choose the Cubs. Anyways, I know a lot of people liked him at least a little bit....

Another thing I've been thinking about with him is that we seem to have a big advantage with his living situations. If he's really that big of a homebody and just doesn't like doing things but play baseball, playing for us allows him to literally live within 3-10 blocks of the stadium (so doesn't n...
