Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

saw kenny lofton's twitter account while browsing brett's page and sent a quick shout out to kenny and aramis and said how much i appreciated their time with the cubs and 2003 overall (though ending heartbreaking-ly, it was a lot of fun). said both are some of my all-time favorite cubs and lofton li...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Kiper is been on Allen's jock for awhile. This is more of a big board than a mock.....there's no way Darnold falls to #5 if he's passed by the Browns and Giants; someone will trade into the Colts spot heard on the radio that someone (not kiper) had a source close to Browns and said they are really,...

Thanks for posting that, Brandon. It's a quick, easy, persuasive chart to show my students when I'm asked, "Do I even really need a 4-year degree?" I shared it with some of my advising colleagues

Re: TV thread

I watched several episodes of the first season but I didn't really love it. Are future seasons better? I gather I can just pick up any random episode with any season as they are all independent? None of the absolute best episodes are in the first season, but they aren't functionally different eithe...

This is almost as tragic as no GoT till 2019.

yes. both of these things make me v sad.

though i'm planning on just re-watching GoT from the beginning when the typical season should be shown - feel like there are probably 1,000 things i've missed along the way

I hate driving home from work this time of year when it gets dark before 5. I drive an hour home and each time I see at least a half dozen dipshits that fail to put their lights on when its basically pitch black out. this has always amazed me. Like, dashboards don't light up unless you have your li...

Re: Offseason Transactions

I feel like for years, it was common knowledge that if you were not going to be competitive, it didn't make any sense to spend money on bullpen talent. Now it's almost becoming the opposite. It's an interesting development. It is way different. But for years, it was a lot less likely that in order ...

thought this was interesting over at bleacher nation, though it may be common sense for many of you. basically, it just goes over draft implications and looks at picks over the past several years in the range for the cubs this year. also, delves in the IFA bonus pool considerations. http://www.bleac...
