Re: NL Central: Vaunted Defending Champion Brewers and others

Joey Votto popped up to the first baseman for the first time in his Major League career tonight. 13 years and 7,000-ish at bats. That’s bizarre. I don't think bizarre is strong enough in this context. We need a better adjective lol. It's horsefeathering incredible. It’s all downhill for Joey V’s ca...

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

Now this is a thread I can get behind like Cub pitchers constnatly do to batters. Is anyone on the fire Theo bandwagon yet besides that guy who thinks it's his sober doppleganger running things? Theo’s not going anywhere unless he himself chooses to. He made this mess, there’s time for him to clean...

Wish we could just fast forward time to 7/31 so we know if this is an aberration or the horsefeathers show it has become so they can start to unload and start to acquire some talent.

it's not at all inconceivable that he'll exceed the value of that entire deal just this year.

Let’s hope. Then he can be traded for pitching cuz McLeod can’t figure out how to develop it.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

If Contreras' agent had advised him to sign any extension with his value at its low point since arriving in MLB, I would hope he would be fired for malpractice. That assumes that you're trying to extend Contreras as if he's last year's player forever. Sure you might discount some on his 2017 perfor...

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Almora has never, even in the minors, shown anything that should encourage a team to call him an everyday player. He sucks against RHP and has shown absolutely no sign of improvement. He's fine for what he is - a platoon guy who's decent against lefties, above average defensively and average on the...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I think at this point I'd be happier with (even the appearance of) Charles being right all along and the beat writers looking dumb than actually having him on the team. I don't think it's happening but still would be fun. He could be right in that they will check with the Cubs after the final offer...

What is the length of the deal? If / when it blows up in their face, they’ll cut a new deal with someone else.

A lot of negativity on so many levels this off season. Theo looked like he was hungover in the presser yesterday.
