Re: Politics & Current Events

FWIW, if any 2016 Trump states swing blue, it won't be Ohio. Doesn't feel like we participated in the blue wave of 2018, and the swing back from Obama to deep red state was swift. This state somehow prides itself on electing absolutely reprehensible people thats because its full of absolutely repre...

I’ve been calling for the standardization of the voting princess since the 90s. Man it feels good to finally be heard.

Re: Astros stole signs electronically in 2017

Randomly lashing out publicly in response to a non-accusation is totally something an innocent person does right? Very Trumpian, which should play well with his fan base Yeah...Ive got 8 years or so of mid-high stakes poker experience and that right there is the most obvious tell that Ive ever seen.

Re: Politics & Current Events

So I have a friend that Im trying to convert from Trumpism. This dude is actually smart, there are just two hurdles that he’s unable to overcome. First and foremost, his political mind is fox news polluted (I actually got him to agree today to let me block fox news on his TV). Second, he’s never bee...

Re: Politics & Current Events

You know they don't actually want everything out in the public, right? Of course, they just want to muddy the waters and slow the process. The “rule” that they are trying to pull simply doesnt exist. There is no reason to hold this vote. So, don’t. Nothing good ever comes from extra, unnecessary st...

Re: Cubs Manager Search (Ross to be hired - Kaplan)

I really liked the idea of plucking espada from the Astros. Not a big fan of hiring a manager with no experience in an official coaching role. He’ll probably be fine, assuming we decide to provide him with a functioning bullpen and he utilizes it well. But damn, i could be wrong but I feel like we w...

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...

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...

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 ...
