Re: Politics & Current Events

It seems backwards to be hyper critical of a small group of voters as opposed to an actual unrepentant horsefeathers ass running for president and the horsefeathers ass party that would be all too happy to see it happen. How about we worry about rallying around the candidate once there's actually a...

They found him passed out drunk in the cargo hold of a FedEx plane? Is that it?

I wonder how much of Kimbrel's contract we'll have to eat when we trade him next offseason in order to afford Russell's arb raise.

Re: NL Central: Vaunted Defending Champion Brewers and others

So is there a large enough sample size in the season to call these numbers suspicious? Yelich’s splits: Home: 17HR, .395 AVG, 1.092 SLG Away: 5 HR, .250 AVG, .464 SLG I looked into the splits for most of their starters and almost all actually have more homers and higher slugging on the road this se...

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: 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...

Antenna talk almost convinced me to say horsefeathers it and stick w/ my 200/month cable. That's how little I want to deal with that nonsense. Unless you're looking for 1980s game shows and sitcoms that TVLand and Netflix don't bother with, I think you'll be alright. I'm sold on 50 bucks for YouTub...

I like the Juwan Howard hire. Hopefully for them it has similar results to how the Penny Hardaway hire is looking for Memphis early on. I like the idea of a famous alumnus HC at his Alma mater. But then get sad when I think about that at IU. Our options are Steve Alford, Keith Smart, effing Dan Dak...
