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

https://twitter.com/highkin/status/1009953283413196800 I don't agree with the comp, but it sucks that there might be some truth to this... Carlos Boozer was a very good player, especially at his peak with Utah. I'd be more than happy if that were his outcome. That said, it's kind of a weird comp IM...

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

FWIW, here's a recent write up on WCJ https://www.postingandtoasting.com/2018/6/20/17470840/know-the-prospect-wendell-carter-jr I think this pick is boring as hell but I'm also fairly confident he'll be a solid player. Feels like a mid 00s Bulls pick. Safe and underwhelming. Thought we hit the rese...

I'm only 34 but life has gone so much faster than when I was younger.

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

I've decided I like just 7 guys for the Bulls first pick in this draft and if we get 1 of the 7 I'll be happy. Obviously some of these like Ayton won't happen. Roughly in order: Ayton, Doncic, Bagley, Porter, Bamba, Young, Jackson I see mock drafts having the Bulls taking Wendell Carter, Kevin Knox,...

There seems to be an influx of people in my life heavily rooting for Mexico because the US isn’t in the World Cup. Is this actually a thing or are the people I know strange?

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

I just want to say when I originally voted on this I thought it said Lester leads pitchers in fWAR and not team so I am going to pretend like I am nailing this prediction right now

I also voted for the Almora choice which is on track and while Contreras isnt leading the team in fWAR he’s 2nd

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Random thought...I remember in the winter there was some talk from the Red Sox that Chili Davis had something to do with the team’s poor power numbers but dismissed it as stupid. But now more than 1/3 into the season I see this Boston HR 2017: 27 out of 30 HR 2018: 2 out of 30 SLG 2017: .407 SLG 201...

Good stuff. Why isn’t Chicago in consideration for a host city again? Rahm pulled the city's bid as FIFA wouldn't guarantee that significant local financing wouldn't be required to host, or something of that nature. That sucks and looking at the potential host cities it will be a trek to go to any ...
