Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Other than Baez and Willson, it seems the other home grown players have either stalled or regressed since 2016. With the young guys, shouldn’t they be getting better with more reps/experience? Schwarber, Russell, CJ Edwards, Almora, Happ (2017) Maybe I was too optimistic looking forward going into 2...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

his defense has been as bad as advertised and he's struck out more than 4 times as much as hes walked. he finally hits some fingers nd it's supposed to he awe inspiring or something?

Working with Mitch McConnell and a caucus that houses Devin Nunez and Steve King certainly is a plan. https://twitter.com/samstein/status/1138246601309376512 I really, really hope Biden doesn't get the nomination. He's going to really depress the Dem turnout. Biden will get exposed in the primaries...

Pitching wise, Martinez and Reyes have set them back big time. Flaherty is learning/growing but not the #1 type just yet.

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...
