Re: Is there a sports cards discussion?

Someday I'm going to pay for college with the metric ton of late 80's and early 90's cards I have somewhere at my parents' house! Surely they've done nothing but explode in value, right? When I moved to Madison, I decided I was tired of them taking up space to I went to the local card collectors st...

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 ...

Re: Food Monstrosities

Carlos O'Kelly's (Mexican restaurant if you couldn't tell) in Rockford was a highlight of my childhood. Like seriously, it was a place people in my family would pick for birthdays. Rockford has some good breweries these days at least. It's been a couple of years since I've been there, but Social is...

Re: Addison Russell

Sounds like I hit too close to home with some of you. The self righteousness is so over the top it's ridiculous.

Just what the Rockies need-another outfielder.

They could use a good one, though.


Then why would they want Almora? Hey-Oh!

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

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. Relegating any pitcher batting to some kind of exhibition is as bad as saying that the adoption of the DH will lead to a DH a...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Assuming no other injuries I’d say I’m almost certain Monty will be back in his swing man role once Darvish is back. That’s where he’s most valuable. We have some long stretches of games in the 2nd half (and a double header or two) so it wouldn’t surprise me to see him get some more starts when the...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

It's looking like Montgomery is forcing his way into the starting rotation. TT is driving the bandwagon, but I'm definitely on board. The Cubs will probably want to watch his innings closely. Last year, he pitched 130 innings, so I would think a 20% increase to 150 innings is probably a fair limit f...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Anyway, Javy continues showing signs of growth at the plate. I can't believe this dude is able to recognize pitches. He has to be terrifying to pitch to right now. He took a 1-2 or 2-2 cutter/slider vs Anderson tonight (I think his 2nd AB) off the outside corner that was a pretty good pitch but not...
