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

Leo Gomez goes into that large, faceless pile of "people who played 3b at some point for the Cubs" with no differentiating traits. Honestly you could take any Hispanic-sounding male name and tell me they played 3b for the Cubs in the 80s or early 90s and my brain would say "oh yeah, ...

Re: Billy Buckner passed away

You mentioned popping out or a weak ground ball, but making contact also could be a sacrifice fly, a fielder's choice, or an error all of which are preferable to striking out. Let's not forget that with some crazy winds, a pop out could drop in for a hit. or it could be a double play which is twice...

Re: NFL Playoffs

Anyone else happy that it was Alshon's horsefeathers up that ended the Eagles season? I'm still mad about last week, the Bears were the better team and putzed it all away. Rooting for KC the rest of the way, anything to marginally bother STL people..... Then you should be rooting for the Rams.

Re: Week 11: Vikings at Chicago Sunday night on NBC

This might make sense if the wind was pushing his kicks way off the mark. But he was hitting uprights. 4 times. honestly, it kind of reminds me of Goulds first year where he was missing (and missing a lot). That time, it was def the wind causing most of his misses. But if it isn't the wind or ball ...

Just what the Rockies need-another outfielder.

If you wanna see pitchers hit dingers, let them have a some kind of hitting competition during the all star break or something. That's as bad as his slippery slope argument.
