Re: Politics & Current Events

I hate that the sentence “Now im not going to say that it ever happened to me, but it did.” barely even registers as a gaffe to me anymore.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Yeah, I can't pin down what exact group was worried about Pence in the White House, but I read it a LOT from my less-smart friends on social media. I think the general thinking was that having an incompetent man pushing the GOP agenda is better than having a competent man pushing the same agenda. I...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Oh man...with Pence being caught up in this to some degree, we could hypothetically see President Pelosi. No we can't and people need to stop saying this. Unless they both die in a plane crash, you're not getting President Pelosi. Yeah, it isn't going to happen, but why do people need to stop sayin...

"I want to know who's the person who gave the whistle-blower the information because that's close to a spy," Trump said, according to the Times, which cited a person briefed on what occurred who had notes of what the President said. "You know what we used to do in the old days when w...

Re: 2020 roster

Explain to me why we would move Schwarber. The guy puts up a .958 2nd half OPS with a 22.2K% on a .246 babip good for a 139wRC+. People are clamoring to throw 4 years and 60M at Castellanos, but want to move a cheaper Schwarber. I don't get it. Hes the one guy who has moderately high value while al...

Re: 2020 roster

I think Theo goes scorched earth on this roster. I think the only untouchables are Rizzo, Javy and Hendricks. Everyone else is various levels of available. Heck Rizzo might even be available but I think they want his clubhouse presence and the Cubs probably value a 30 year old 1B with 2 years left ...

Ah, when you said “tobacco” I didnt know you were referring specifically to chewing tobacco. Still, there are about 20 different flavors of Skoal chewing tobacco.

I don’t vape but this whole ban seems ridiculous. Like Trump falling for the fake news he always rails on. It sounds like all the deaths and illnesss are traced to black market THC oil cartridges that contain Vitamin E acetate which is harmful if inhaled. Instead it’s being reported that vaping is ...

Re: Hultzen finally makes it; guy who looks at cameras DFA'd

Wick, Wieck, Hultzen seem like a solid foundation to build the pen for next year. Does Hultzen ever get back into the rotation? Really? That looks like a disaster to me, and I like Wick. Im gonna be so pissed if we go into 2020 without a lockdown bullpen. Its been our biggest problem every single y...

New Chappelle special is outstanding I laughed many times and its worth watching (don't let Vice fool you), but his older stuff is definitely better.

Re: Cubs get Castellanos

I'm not going to gnash teeth over the individual players, but I'm again bummed that we're still on this multi-year track of frittering away prospect currency on so many rentals. It doesn't help that I am not a very big Castellanos believer, hard to get too over the moon over a position player that ...
