Re: Stand Up Comedy and Comedians are Awesome Chit Chat

Mulaney is going to be in my neck of the woods in June. Pretty pumped. Saw him last Friday. He was doing a show at Loyola open to students, alumni, etc. it was mostly great, but he spent a bit too much time interacting with and indulging the college kids that shouted horsefeathers out in the middle...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Schwarber checks in at 50 on Jonah's list, Contreras 41, Hendricks 40. I imagine we'll see three more Cubs in the top 30, maybe 4. No idea whether Baez cracks the list.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Bill Simmons is the worst.

I just recently read his book about basketball. It was a humongous pile of horsefeathers. 800 rambling pages of Celtics bias, willfully obtuse arguments, straw men, bad jokes, and anecdotes about strippers. I remember people loving it when it came out. Why?

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Andreoli will probably never see the 25-man, but inability to play CF doesn't strike me as a huge disadvantage for anyone looking for a role as the Cubs 5th outfielder. Almora, Jay, Heyward, and even KB can play there if needed. The 5th outfielder can just be a corner OF capable of putting together ...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

yeah from the sounds of it there was an understanding that the AD and Underwood would renegotiate if he was successful. then the AD wouldn't renegotiate. so basically what I'm saying is jay bilas can horsefeathers off.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

javy is as hated by fans of other teams as i always dreamed he would be. ok not quite. he does get a lot of love for how exciting he is, but it's so fun to watch the "play the game the right way" crowd (read: cardinals fans) bitch about him.

Re: Most Memorable Cubs Games You've Attended

The first game I went to Dawson homered. That's all I remember. I think it was 1992. I went to a game in I think 1994 and sat next to Dave Wannstedt. I was 7 and didn't give a horsefeathers about the Bears at that point. I was more excited about Tuffy Rhodes poster day. I was at a game in '98 where ...

Re: Bears offseason

I'm surprised at how many of you guys want us to blow our load in FA, which is generally an absolutely terrible plan. This is dumb and wrong. The idea that smart teams don't spend in free agency is dumb and wrong. You have to spend in free agency to compete. There is no such thing as a purely draft...

yeah she really doubled down.

yadi is so valuable that if He wasn't around last season the cards might've finished an even 20 games behind the Cubs instead of a respectable 17.5.

People are stupid. Thing is, she's not just a person. She writes for BP, and both the local BP Cubs/Sox sites.

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #42)

I cannot think of one moment that I can definitively say is from the 2011 season. I'm sure that if I looked up the season on B-R there would be a number of games I'd say 'oh i remember that' but 2010 thru the first 2 months of 2014 is one giant blur to me. Once the Cubs started going on that winnin...
