Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Epstein: Zobrist could return to Cubs this season "There's been a little definition added to how he hopes this thing might go," Epstein said on Thursday before the Cubs played the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I've been in constant touch with Zobrist. He knows the door is open. I think he's ...

Asst GM is just a weird title in football in general. Most teams seem to have just embraced the "Director" titles.

What does he actually do?

He assists the GM. Duh.

You think? I sent it to several people and they immediately said the same thing. I don't think it's enough for a lawsuit like "Ice Ice baby" but the opening riff sounds VERY similar to me.

Re: If your Dr said going vegan would add 15 years to your life...

I've read stuff about Hollywood/rich types like Sam Jackson going vegan and it being great for them. I don't doubt it but I think it's probably 1000x easier if you have a personal chef, nutritionist, etc. I've made some slight lifestyle improvements as I've gotten older but my dumb ass is going to ...

There’s security cam footage out there. He’s sitting in a very crowded area and someone walks up and shoots him from behind with no warning.

Re: Cubs in agreement with Craig Kimbrel 3/$43m with 4th year option

was just checking In to see people's thoughts on the Kimbrel signing, nice to see it devolved into some kind of anti-trump thread fairly quickly, I guess things are pretty much as terrible as ever... See you guys in a couple years when Trump is your president again... https://data.whicdn.com/images...

Well now that he’s tricked the tightwad Ricketts family into thinking they won’t have to pay him anymore so they could sign Kimbrel, Benny is free to double cross them and come back!

That sounds like the movie version of reading his autobiography while listening to a greatest hits comp, IMO.

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I most remember Trachsel from my first game at Wrigley Field. My dad was teaching me how to keep score. After Brian Hunter lead off the game with a double my dad turned to me and said, “Well, there goes the no hitter.” Only hit the Astros got that day. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHN/C...

FWIW, it's 89% on rotten tomatoes with 180 reviews.

It's gone down from when I checked it yesterday. But I still don't get the number. I was so looking forward to this only to be stunned when I realized this isn't at all what I expected.

at first i thought you said the rocketeer and i was about to beat your ass.

out of curiosity: what's bad about it? reviews look promising.

It’s a musical with bizarre fantasy/dream sequences. Guess it’s my fault for expecting a biopic.
