Re: 2018 All Star Game

His slide against Toronto was the best “deal with it” slide of all time. https://i.imgur.com/Ct7Lqjv.gif Every time this gif gets posted I watch it like 30 times in a row and it just never becomes any less majestic. I like how the score at the top of the screen changes before the umpire signals saf...

Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

Damn now I wish the game was at an AL park. I would love to see Javy dong to lead off the entire game.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I get people not liking his act or whatever as a fan but he seems like a manager that any player would love to play for. Forward thinking, acts as a players manager, does a great job balancing PT so everyone is fresh, puts young players in positions to prove themselves, would never throw a player un...

Sometimes he looks normal, other times he looks like a 5 year old dressed him and still other times he looks and acts like a red neck.

I think his numbers will be tempered by him instinctively flipping his bat after every HR and then having to go and retrieve it

Re: 2018 All Star Game

Last year with how the Cubs ended the half and the fact that their only All-Star was Wade Davis I pretty much skipped all the All star game festivities. This year I am pretty excited to watch tomorrow and Tuesday. Hope Javy and Schwarber do better than Bryzzo in 2015

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I really like this deal for the Bulls, especially with the team option in year 2. We won't be able to stop anybody but the team should be pretty entertaining. Yeah, that’s why I still see this as a 35 win team. Defense will be atrocious. I’m hating the Lavine deal more and more now. He’s going to e...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I don’t think “Javy doesn’t know names” is a meme anymore. It’s just real life. It started when he was in like AA and he was talking about how great his team's lineup was, and he knew himself and two other top-100 prospects. He went down the list saying "some guy" for everyone else. Edit:...

I'm willing to witness the brutal sacrifice that must occur for the greater good.


In five games you’ll have a decent chance of seeing Rizzo reach base


But Chatwood is pitching to the team that doesn’t have Rizzo

Re: 2018 Blackhaws/NHL Off-Season Thread

For those too lazy to click on Jersey's link..



Hawks gave up a promising forward and a 3rd pairing blue line player and got back 4.65m in cap savings and minor league filler. Success of the trade is going to depend on how they use it.

Re: 2018 Blackhaws/NHL Off-Season Thread

Entwistle is a 2017 3rd round pick by Arizona, Maletta looks like AHL filler and Campbell at best a 3rd pairing defenseman.

I'm no expert though, just from 30 seconds of googling. Hawks should get cap space here.

Re: 2018 Blackhaws/NHL Off-Season Thread

So I guess we won't be getting much if any cap space back after all.

Holy hell does Stan like re-acquiring old Hawks.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

another sign Over the past month, Harper has shaved his trademark beard, changed one of his walk-up songs -- he ditched Sam Hunt's "Body Like A Back Road" in favor of "Drunk On Your Love" by Brett Eldredge -- Pretty sure Rizzo uses that walk-up song, or at least did in the past....

2018 Blackhaws/NHL Off-Season Thread



Sounds like the Hawks will end up with a nice chunk of cap room... There are apparently more pieces and this could be a much larger deal.

Also holy horsefeathers, DeRosa did the Javy slide to win it. Or at least the white boy version of the Javy slide. That's nuts. It's at 4:28:10
