Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Wasn't Theo the one that immediately dumped him after taking over with the Cubs? Two months later, but from what I'm posting below there was no saving Z as a Cub. On August 12, 2011, against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, Zambrano allowed five home runs. After the fifth home run he allowed, he...

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.

Re: Politics & Current Events

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...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado - (Cubs in talks per Levine)

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.

So are we supposed to pretend that Tillerson getting fired has nothing to do with him blaming Russia for attempting to kill their former spy? Is Trump even pretending that?
