Re: Politics & Current Events

I can't wait for someone to ask Joe Biden about student loan forgiveness. This clown should just get off the stage before it gets really ugly for him. Its going to be such an amusing side note after the election: “Man, remember last year when JOE BIDEN” was the front runner!” He will be the ‘08 Giu...

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

You don't deserve nice things, especially not a guy on pace for 30 dongs and 40+ doubles who has a 12% walk rate. A guy who hit 30 HR pre-mega juiced ball should be hitting more than he's hitting. He's not even getting the "looks like a 300 foot pop up off the bat.....and it's 4 rows deep"...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Criteria for being a manager:

1. Were you a mediocre or worse professional catcher?
2. If not, were you on deck when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s home run record?


That’s pretty much it.

He was setting up this narrative in 2016 (the election will be illegitimate, watch out for voter intimidation at the booths, etc.), only nothing came of it because he won (and no one was more surprised than him). I guarantee had he lost the EC by 1 or 2 votes that he would have spent months challeng...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm also curious what people who say they're afraid of Trump...doing things to challenge the election results if he loses think he can actually do. Like, it's not some insurmountable obstacle if a president refuses to accept a loss or leave the White House or whatever. Quite the opposite, actually....

Re: Trade targets 2019

If we just want someone to be a slightly above average bat with solid defense for depth, I kinda feel like Robel Garcia has to be the first call before spending any trade currency. Well yeah but for some reason we aren’t calling him up or Happ even though they’re better players than at least 2 guys...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump’s new narrative that he didn’t actually lose the popular vote is setting the foundation for him challenging the results of the 2020 election. Things could get very ugly next November, especially with a party that has no interest in telling him to horsefeathers off

Re: College Football Offseason

And nothing will come of it. Yeah, the faux outrage over boosters paying players is hilarious. If people were really so mad about it, it would go away. But schools don't care that it's going on, the NCAA only pretends it cares (so it can look like its doing something), and the players are never goi...

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

Side question: are there too many levels of minor leagues? Is there any argument for condensing the three or four levels of pre-AA? For what purpose? If participation dwindles they may be forced to do it someday out of a lack of viable bodies to field a team, but I don't think there are "too m...

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

I don't know what the solution is, but the huge differences between the four major sports can be maddening. Baseball players come in and make nothing for several years, THEN (if they get called up) are locked into their team's control for another 6 years. Even with arbitration, the earning potential...
