Re: Politics & Current Events

It seems backwards to be hyper critical of a small group of voters as opposed to an actual unrepentant horsefeathers ass running for president and the horsefeathers ass party that would be all too happy to see it happen. How about we worry about rallying around the candidate once there's actually a ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

But the primaries aren't even remotely close to being over, so why are you bemoaning candidates and voters going at it over these guys in June?

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I'm not disagreeing that Eloy is garbage defensively; I'm the one who was suggesting that it makes the most sense to move him to 1B/DH (and ideally much more of the latter) as soon Abreu is gone. The defensive discussion is about Schwarber's value there; I'm murky (shocker) about the disparity betwe...

Re: Politics & Current Events

But right now there is a better than decent chance this guy will be our nominee against Trump, and this is not helping. Democrats learn nothing. It's almost like they're working towards some kind of primary or something. WEIRD. I am pumping my brakes on my previous post about de Blasio's tweet as I...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Schwarber has over 2600 innings (~285 full games) in the OF with a UZR/150 of +8.8. He has multiple seasons of 90+ games in the OF with at least an 8.8 UZR. Even if you take an oaf tax of half a win per year he's still adding value. I'll fully cop to just doing the (possibly) dumb thing and only go...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Schwarber would be less valuable in the AL/as a DH only because he adds positive value on defense and you’d be taking that away. Come on, man; how long does one season's worth of a Fangraphs defensive rating get to be the sort of thing you can hang a statement like this on? Schwarber has over 2600 ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

How much longer is Abreu signed for? I can't imagine it's for more than a year or two, tops, right? If Eloy keeps hitting, I just figured they'd slide him at DH/1B.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Man, I was thinking I had just glossed over Chatwood's recent appearances by how little it felt like he had pitched, but I checked and he's only made 3 appearances this month (though, granted, for just shy of 6 innings), and, woof, he stunk it up fierce in 2 of them.

Chatwood starts Thursday and not Adbert, boooo.

I can tell my dad is still pretty staunchly "classically" conservative, but he thinks Trump and co. are an absolute joke and constant embarassment (he was not a fan of of W. Bush's administration before he was re-elected, too, which surprised me). I know he voted for Clinton in 2016, but w...
