Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The Cornbelters of Normal, Il host a Legends game each year, with a few former MLB players. This year's roster includes: Bob Dernier, Rick Ankiel, Brian Jordan, Mike Fontenot, Jose Canseco, Mitch Williams, Carlos Zambrano, and Mark Prior. I can only assume Prior will be throwing a towel session on t...

Re: The Cardinals

I get the feeling BFsIB will start asking to trade Fowler by the end of spring training. https://twitter.com/bestfansstlouis/status/833314681339121664 It comes as very little surprise that the Cards fan from Pekin, IL thinks this, considering he lives in a town that's high school nickname was the P...

In D3 news, I went and watched my alma mater play today. They're currently (at least as of Jan 31) the highest scoring team in the country. They won tonight 149-146. They were down 7 w/ just under 2:00 left, and finally hit some key 3s to close it out. Very intense. They sub the entire line, play f...

How in the ever loving horsefeathers is Ben Carson even remotely qualified to be the secretary of HUD? He lived in HUD housing as a child, or something like that. It's the best job for him if he has to have a job in govt. By that I mean it's the position where he can do the least amount of damage. ...

They were expecting (hoping for) 2" or so. The front moved too quickly, and they only got about .5". The majority of the fires seem to have calmed, but there are still smaller fires that could pick up at any moment.

Re: Cubs offseason thread

Doesn't really make sense for the Tigers to trade Verlander for one year of Arrieta + others, as I imagine it'd be. You don't sell off while acquiring contending pieces like Arrieta. That being said... yes, please. The Tigers need to lower payroll, but most of their high paid players are necessary ...

Re: College Football - Week 13 (Nov. 26)

Maybe my homer goggles are on but I keep seeing the replay of the 4th down. There is no way he got the first down. The only reason it looks close is because of the camera angle. If you focus on where his body is and then imagine the camera even with the 15 yard line, it doesn't look like he gets to...

Court rules in favor of IHSA. I feel bad for everyone involved, its a horsefeathers situation for everyone and I sort of agree with all sides.
