Re: Shohei Ohtani Signs with Angels

Well this is disappointing. The Angel's seem like the choice if you want to hide. Arguably the best player in baseball has been invisible there for years. It's certainly not where you go if you are looking for marketing opportunities or if you want to compete for that matter. What a bizarre choice. ...

Re: Cubs sign Jon Jay

I don't have a problem with this. It's a 1 year deal and gives you another option in CF. I really kind of feel like they have plenty of versatility in the OF already and this just gives you an additional option. I didn't want to see them use trade chips for an outfielder. Maybe he had a multi year o...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Rizzo It also helps slow the game down when you’re able to do stuff like that. I used to yell at Addison Russell when he was next to me playing second. He’d get a pop-up, and I’d be in his ear like, “Don’t drop it!” Or, “Watch out for that skateboard!” He’s probably glad he’s over at short now … aw...

Re: Mark Prior doesn't blame Dusty, but I still do

I still love Mark, I hope he finds his way back to the organization some day in the future. I think, as he did that the collision and the line drive off the arm played a major factor but Dusty will always have a share of the blame in my mind. I think he has a lot to offer in terms of teaching pitchi...
