I grow bored.


Can't we get some games so I can obsessively over analyze small sample results?

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

The starting pitching is good at points in the season and worse than mediocre most of the season, but not terrible. The Cubs have multiple pitchers on the DL. Hendricks loses velocity and becomes incredibly hittable. Hamels performers like a number 5 starter, Lester can't pitch past the 5th inning ...

2019 Bold Prediction Time

1) Last year I predicted that Javy would learn how to hit righties better and become a star. This year, he does a better job laying off pitches outside the zone (he gets to average - still not great) and takes another big step as a result. 2) Bryant is fully healthy and the NL MVP 3) Milwaukee finis...

So are they not releasing the dollar figures because they aren't available? Or are they just aware of the bad optics in bragging about a multi-billion dollar deal when they're claiming they can't afford $4M for Chavez?

His left hand either has a beer in it or he's checking to see if anyone is watching. His left hand is visible, so I must be the latter. Unless he's using his thumb to pinch the beer against his bicep to hold it up, in which case he's got mad skillz. Now I'm confused...that's his right hand on the d...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

Yeah, the Cubs are fine as long as everything goes right, but the odds of everything going right over a long season aren't great. Since they didn't spend the money or make any trades (yet), we have to hope the semi-injured bounce back, the old-timers stay "young" for another year, and eve...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

The more I look at this team the more I am able to talk myself into the pitching staff. The starting staff isn't sexy, but it looks solidly above average. There's upside there too. Darvish obviously, but Quintana too. For as bad as he was last year, his velocity was fine, and he threw strikes and m...

Players would be far better off asking for something like a 26 man roster instead of "asking" for the dh.

They'd be best off asking for more fundamental changes that have been discussed here before (years of control, early salary process, etc.).
