Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Why not all lottery teams get 1 ball/same odds? Then teams that were never going to compete have no incentive to make their team worse. Rebuilding teams can try and maybe make a run, but if they fall short they can still get lucky. This is what I think, and it's what used to happen when the lottery...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah, Verlander is the one that got away. I think he wanted to be a Cub too. He may have become available after the Q trade but it still would have been nice to get him. Dude has been a monster for the Astros. IIRC, the SI piece about the Verlander trade specifically mentions that he was basically ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Just think how bad it would be if Lester / Yu / Q went down for the year with an injury. We have next to nothing to fill in (Butler and Monty don’t count). Those three pitchers have a combined 0.2 fWAR. No kidding. We'd very likely be a worse team without any of those 3, but they're an odd 3 to sin...

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

I'm by no means a good draft pick evaluator, but if MPJ is available at 6, you have to take him right? Obviously has considerable risk with his injury but probably has 3rd best ceiling in the draft after Ayton and Doncic. I don't like Bamba (useful but limited ceiling), Jaren Jackson (has too many ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

the current playoff format is pretty great. Although I’d probably feel differently if the Cubs were on the wrong end of some short series NLDS randomness/luck in their recent run. Yeah I’m fine with it and the overall 162 game set up too. Just saying it seems making playoff series longer would be s...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Re: Wrigleyville-ish parking question

For the last decade I've been driving about a half-mile north of Wrigley and parking for free on the streets. Once you get past the 7-11 at the Clark/Southport intersection, the 'no parking' signs disappear.

But since you'll be there in the freezing effing cold, that walk might not seem so enticing.

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

I think generally it’s definitely Hendricks, but for Cubs fans it may be Pedro Strop. I think ultimately it's Bryant. People know he's great, but because he's kinda bland and doesn't play with any flair or attitude, he's underrated. Contreras might be second. I don't think it's appreciated nearly e...

Knicks up 13 at half. They’ll probably tank it away in the 2nd half though so not getting my hopes up. A Kings win tonight would be nice too if we can find a way to lose. Still an outside shot for top 6 if we can find a way to lose out. Not likely, though. Why does the NBA lottery only give you a c...
