Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

Damn now I wish the game was at an AL park. I would love to see Javy dong to lead off the entire game. Are they switching back now? I know they made the AL the home team in '16 when the game was in SD, but I guess with Cleveland hosting next year it would make sense to go back to actually having th...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I really like this deal for the Bulls, especially with the team option in year 2. We won't be able to stop anybody but the team should be pretty entertaining.

Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

Apparently they moved to a timed round format rather than the "until 10 outs" format. I don't know when that happened since I haven't watched the derby in a few years, but that sounds like an excellent change. That was definitely the format when Bryzzo were in the Derby two years ago. I t...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Has nothing to do with anything, really, in light of the rule above, but I recall that playoff walkoff HR by the Mets; Todd Pratt I think ran onto the field & picked up the hitter in celebration before he even got to 2b, he never did cross home due to the celebration. I'm pretty sure that impac...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Contreras is now closer than Javy to starting, which seems weird.

So as far as All-Stars, Javy and Lester are locks, but is that looking like it? Maybe the catcher spot is so weak Contreras gets a nod? Morrow? Schwarber?

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

Not that it'll make one damn bit of difference to the families affected, but it appears the suspect lost a defamation case against that paper a few years ago, so this was probably less about an attack on free press than another evil [expletive] seeing an opportunity for so called vengeance.

'The two sides have been talking about an extension' is an interesting way to say 'NBCSCH has been bringing up extension talk while the Cubs dodge their phone calls and start working on their network'.
