Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

it's one of my dad's favorite pieces of baseball trivia, so i've heard about it plenty because of him. but it always seems like new information to people when he tells them, so i'm not surprised it's not super common knowledge.

Re: Politics & Current Events

By charging those Russians with election tampering crimes, Mueller has made any connections to Trump and his campaign election crimes. I’d wager Trump has been told this by his lawyers and his tweetstorm meltdown last night and this morning is a result. He has to know his days are numbered. how man...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

So much for this signing knocking down the rest of the dominoes. Every other big FA still sitting out there I wonder if at this point some guys are sitting out, out of principle to prove a point for another week or so even if they have decent offers (like JD and his 5/125 or whatever and Hosmer and...

nah, i read it. i just think it's a silly premise to explore with this group given the last three years, and it's a well that people keep going back to. last summer, i had family members insisting that the reason the cubs were struggling is that they were missing the leadership of David Ross, Dexter...

Mannnnnnn, between Sahadev and Mooney, the Athletic's Cubs coverage is in a great great place. Worth the price alone (not to mention the Bears content too...Bulls coverage seems MEH). And I was a big anti-Athletic guy Yes, the infrequent stuff Rian Watt did for them(although he's now at Fangraphs) ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

i could see sending out assets to salary dump heyward and/or zobrist (assuming no big bouncebacks from either) A year away, but given what it would take to dump Heyward (paying most of his salary, prospects, etc.), I wonder if they'd consider trading Schwarber for cheap production/pitching, keep He...

i know we won't need to do anything else, but curious what other moves people think we make after signing harper. do they try to deal someone of the schwarber/happ/almora group, one of heyward/zobrist, send la stella off to wherever jake lands, or just say horsefeathers it and keep everybody? having...

aside from one guy saying theo should horsefeathers a goat, i don't see anyone making a big deal out of it. the commentary has been pretty mild.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Has anyone checked in on Quintana? Has he vented anything on social media? Im sure he's pretty shaken up over these comments saying that because he's lived up to/exceeded the first multi-million dollar contract he will sign in his lifetime he now has a fancy new teammate and better odds to be a Wor...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Also, although I could be wrong, I'm pretty sure Theo talked about Q's great contract when we traded for him, too. he did. so? So why didn't people have a problem with it then like they do now? well, on my end, because context matters. the relationship between players and front offices is much icie...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Y'all are really overreacting to the Quintana statement, imo Yeah, it seems strange. When I heard Theo say it, I didn't take it at all negatively as a few of you have. Theo has talked a few times about how disappointed and frustrated he's been for the players this offseason. Can't imagine many othe...

well, I, personally don’t think theo should horsefeathers a goat. it’s just a weird drum to be beating at that level of specificity given the current environment. if he made mention in broad terms about the number of young players under control for the next 3-4 years providing surplus value allowing...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

That's this close to Theo drunknely raving about how he can't believe how little they have to pay Quintana. yeah i'm sure jose loves hearing about how the cubs were just able to give a top 20 pitcher $126 million because he's a top 20 pitcher on a $26 million contract. I’m sure he was very happy an...
