Re: Bulls offseason

Sounds like nobody was really willing to offer a top pick for cost controlled 27 year old Jimmy Butler. Weird. Boston should have traded for him because it looks like they have a bunch of picks but will fall to Lebron yet again. Last night was a disaster. The only silver lining is that it not only ...

I enjoy the Stacks series on Deadspin, where they republish classic sports journalism. The one today is about a failed player who killed himself on the USC baseball field one night, and it's pretty damn intense. That is one cold, cold suicide note going after Rod Dedeaux. http://thestacks.deadspin.c...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Agreed, but that's completely different than saying "go after the pensions." Everybody should have a pension, and we should be fighting to keep those, not letting or forcing employers to get rid of them. Seems like pretty simple distinction to me that if you are found liable in the death ...

I believe that they are sending Schwarber down now and if he rakes they will keep him down there until the trade deadline. They then will flip him for a cost controlled SP. He may have played his last game in a Cubs uniform. Ooooooh, this is definitely you gettin' greedy. Shoulda just taken the win...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

You can't do that either. The pension trust is protected assets. Even if you could, the benefits are guaranteed so the trust would have to be replenished by the city/state. If the city/state couldn't fund the trust the benefits would still have to be paid and that burden would be pushed to the fede...

I don't think Civil suits can go directly after a person's pension in a situation like that. And I don't think that is a law, that should be changed, because it would open up avenues for an employer to go after an employee's pension or 401k. I don't think we're talking individually, the money would...

I'm going to need someone to explain what they mean by going after the pensions, and how that helps solve the problem.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

This seems like an extra dumb idea right now, considering Schwarber has been productive in June and Heyward and Zobrist going on the DL. It might accelerate the progress he was going to make anyway, but if you're making the team worse in the meantime how much benefit are you even getting? All the t...
