Out of curiosity, why does he keep getting banned?


Didn't one of his last rants start to go into racist rhetoric or something? Might be mixing him up with something else

I posted this earlier but I found record of him being a registered Democrat in Florida. That said, he was listed as inactive so I'm guessing this was back when he was the Marlins TV guy...Obviously the world has changed quite a bit over the last 16 years.

He needs to capstone his Cubs career by coming on and having an NSBB chat, if only to see how bitter and jaded we've gotten as a board.

Re: Len Kasper taking White Sox radio job

https://twitter.com/MLBastian/status/1334910494038249473 I completely believe Len when he says the Cubs wanted him to stay and made that clear. The questions I have are what led him to the decision that he needed to leave to begin with. It can't all just be about loving radio. It just can't. This 1...

Re: Len Kasper taking White Sox radio job

It's probably not political, but replacing Len ( a registered Democrat ) with Chris Myers (a registered [expletive]) has to be seen as a win for Sinclair. Theo leaving too. Whether or not its politically motivated, not really great moves to appease the fanbase in this heavily polarized time we live ...

Re: Len Kasper taking White Sox radio job

I will say if you told me 3 years ago that I'd be looking for the White Sox broadcast for Cubs/Sox games, I would have called you a liar. I love Len and think he will have a much better broadcast than Marquee but the first time I hear him getting excited for a White Sox player doing something again...

Interesting data regarding Non-tenders. Almost half of all NT's and 73% of all money saved came from the Central divisions.

It's still so crazy to me that his behavior has been normalized.

Re: The Bears still have to play games (I guess it's Packers week too)

Even if you think Trubisky is your guy, giving away three picks to move up that one spot is insane. There are obviously several things that bug me about that move, but what you said makes sense. If you are willing to give up a pretty decent haul to move up 1 spot on the off chance someone took Mitc...

Re: The Politics Thread

I didn’t realize how close some of these House races are. Here are 4 really close ones:

* CA-21: R leads D by 1,729 votes
* CA-25: R leads D by 405 votes
* IA-2: R leads D by 6 votes
* NY-22: R leads D by 12 votes

Crazy that the Republican is leading all of those close races

Re: The Bears still have to play games (I guess it's Packers week too)

I think they decided that they HAD to have a QB that offseason and all the ones in the draft were garbage so he used his 1st rounder on him. But obviously like you said, he flat out sucked in 4 seasons with Seattle. If they weren't trading him, they had to be strongly thinking about flat out cuttin...

That '97 team was fun to look up. Mirer started 3 games(games 4-6) en route to an 0-7 start. After sitting at 1-10, tied with the Colts for worst record in the NFL, they'd close the season 3-2, chasing down the Cardinals, Chargers, and Raiders, dropping to the 5th overall pick(while losing the 4 wa...

Re: The Bears still have to play games (I guess it's Packers week too)

Remember when we talked about Mitch having a relatively low number of INTs because he wasn’t allowed to take chances. Well this is what happens when you let Mitch take chances. Throws into double and triple coverage that are intercepted
