Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Any interest in Paxton from the Ms? The injury history is a worry. I wanna say that he’s a potentially dominant pen arm, but the cost to acquire him may be too high to then stick him in the pen.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I know im late to it but Biden really, really reminds me of a creep. Ever seen him around a woman? I’ll post pictures/videos later if i need to prove my point, but his behavior in front of/towards women has given me pause several times and i wouldnt be too surprised if there are #metoo skeletons in ...

I would have put the odds of that option being picked up at 0% if you asked me this morning. But, ok, whatever.

It starts out pretty slow, because its a massive game with a crap ton of things to do and it has to teach you everything. But even that is awesome. I cant imagine being bored by it.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I know theres no such thing as a lead-off hitter but i feel like the offense is missing a Fowler-type. I’d like to find one of those this offseason. If nothing else, it’ll stop Joe from putting one of middle of the order hitters at lead-off. Who is available?

Yeah thats kinda strange. I thought the MAGA-nut on the jury saving him on 10 counts would embolden him. But, wasn’t the second trial the one that threatened to put him in jail forever?

Re: Cubs likely to sign Jaime Garcia

I always liked him for some reason, even when he was with the cards. Good curveball. He’s butt now but eh maybe we’ll get lucky and he’ll manage to pitch a couple times without sucking too much.

Also i just saw those lefty splits, so yeah now im totally on board.

If it wasn’t already obvious that the Republican base consists of garbage human beings, their treatment of John McCain since his diagnosis would have made it so. I’ve never cringed so much in a 10 minute span than I did reading R/conservative’s thread about him.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I feel like even if Hamels continues like this you can decline the option, which Texas pays the 6mm buyout, and then try to sign him to like a 2/25 deal. I’d be shocked if we pick up that option. Im pretty sure Harper is ours I think Russell + one of Happ/Almora will be traded for a young ace-calibu...

Maybe if a deal can be made with Happ going back as the main piece Id be excited about it. I doubt it, though, so id rather keep Russell and get Harper next year.
