Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

So it has now been a full month since Rizzo last hit a HR and going all the back to June 1st his SLG is .438. I know the OBP is still there, but I'm starting to get a bit worried here. I'm not...Riz has been a notoriously streaky hitter in his career. In April of last year he hit 1 HR in 18 games w...

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Anger about the trade aside, I’m happy Monty will almost certainly get a chance to start. He obviously has wanted to start for several years but was a team player and accepted lesser roles for multiple years

Also thank GOD joe won’t have him to bring in against lefties

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

I know Monty has been bad and hurt this year but trading him straight up for a rental backup catcher is beyond horsefeathering stupid. I'm actually mad about this. Caratini has been solid as a backup and 2B has been a black hole and the pen is a mess but ok. Yeah wtf this trade makes no horsefeathe...

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

I'm generally in the "clutch is noise" camp, however I think there is some reason it may persist in the numbers even if it's not some moral failing: 1. Good hitters are always going to suffer because managers are managing to them. For example, you'll bring in the closer in the 8th to face...

It’s a showcase Wilmette home a short walk from Lake Michigan. But it’s not the home that R...

Boogie signing a 1 year deal with the Lakers. Probably a good move for both sides. Brought back Rondo, McGee and KCP also and signed Danny Green. Really like the last one since they desperately needed shooting. They also got Quinn Cook from Warriors so they got another guy who can shoot. Yeah...the...

Terrible front office that tends to put together middling teams and hire horsefeathers and/or hateable coaches. It's a pretty potent recipe for why big players wouldn't want to come to the Bulls.
