Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Does anyone know if Marquee broadcasts will be available online to authenticated users, like they were with NBC Sports? Don't believe it's been officially announced, but since Sinclair owns the Fox Sports RSNs, which all have figured out in-market streaming AFAIK (I can stream FS Detroit games in-m...

The Fox part was pretty obvious when they named Chris Myers 'backup play by play guy' - and well deserved for Len - but the radio part is sort of fun.

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The DH is dumb and lame, but this fight was lost when the DH started becoming a regular thing at lower levels of the game and pitchers no longer bothered working on their hitting. Might as well just get it over with. Pitchers don't suck at hitting because they don't work on it enough, they suck at ...

Nothing sums up this off-season for this franchise like back-to-back posts floating Arenado to the Cubs followed by 'no actually we want Scooter Gennett'

Re: RIP Kobe Bryant

TMZ is now saying one of his daughters was with him. horsefeathers. They broke the original story so it’s probably true. Rick Fox wasn’t per his daughter. Lots of reckless journalism speculating. It was him and his daughter, another player on his daughter's team and a parent of that player. The 5th...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

That last part is probably the most important. Sammy got a deserved reputation for being a surly prick over the years, and also cut himself out of baseball once he was retired (though who knows how welcome he would've been anyway). While it's unfair, that's definitely a big factor in him not being a...

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

Baseball has a long, long history of horsefeathers owners doing horsefeathers things. The owner of the Red Sox sold Ruth's contract because he had a flop on Broadway. Charles Comisky precipitated the "The Black Sox" scandal by treating his star players lousy. Jeff Luria was allowed to buy...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Full up with a better one already Bryant can play the outfield. Put it this way, there is literally nothing, within reason, the Cubs can do right now that would increase their chances of winning a title this year more than going to get Arenado. Especially if the most likely alternative is him playi...

“When Theo comes to suggest something like that, I generally approve it,” Ricketts said.

Players really ought not to have to choose between being paid what they're worth and having any hope of being on a competitive team ever.

Lame-ass 'proper channels' cop-out by Mendoza. It's pretty damn clear that no amount of going through the 'proper channels' was going to stop Houston from doing what it was doing.

Not sure where to put this, but this is probably the best place. Luke Kuechly retired. It's suck for a guy to see awesome players like him, Willis, Gronk, etc. to retire so early, but it's the right decision. Saw the headline, has he been hurt?
