Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

At least we had some good times with Howry. He was useful before he got TERRIBLE That fan rushing the field and getting to the mound when he was out there and then having an oh horsefeathers moment when he realized Howry would beat his ass is still one my favorite all time Cubs moments I found this...

Re: Kyle Hendricks: Somehow Greg Maddux

I'm pretty sure the vast majority of our fan base thinks Strop sucks, or at the least is nothing special. yea, I'd be stunned if Strop is thought of much at all outside of NSBB'ers. #5 might be John Lackey because of his legendary mound melt down in game 2 (I think it was game 2) last year, but not...

Re: Week 1: Bears @ Stupid Cheeseheads 7:20pm NBC

You guys are nuts. It completely sucked to lose that game but we lost to GB in GB. It’s not the end of the world. They won because we horsefeathers up a gift wrapped TD. If that’s the only way we lose to them in Lambeau it sucks but is a good sign moving forward. This division isn't going to give y...

That’s not what I said. I think he was always pretty high on javy but I could be wrong strangely enough, if i remember right, he wasn't necessarily anti-javy, he would just kind of always compare him to lindor and talk about how much worse he was than lindor, so he ended up kinda being right Maybe ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The offseason moves were not great, but not because of the Morrow signing. It's because of the Darvish + Chatwood signings and how little we've gotten from them. Letting Wade Davis leave and signing Morrow was the right thing to do. I guess we could've traded for another Closer, but then we'd be lo...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

Apparently, they try not to do the type of MRI that showed this issue until they absolutely feel that they have to because it involves injecting a dye that can cause even more soreness. Why it wasn't done earlier, however -- not sure. I don’t get that. Pitcher says his arm hurts, but they don’t wan...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

That brutal stretch of games for the VBs coming out of the ASB has not really been that brutal. They've played about equal to the Cubs, who've had a pretty light schedule over the same period. They're 4 back in the loss column, though. Continuing to play "about equal (but still worse)" th...
