Am I reading this right? Miggy was slightly below average at framing and Willson is in the bottom 20% of catchers in baseball at framing?

Re: To the Victor go the spoils

Damn...certainly didn't expect this strong of a reaction but I understand it. We lose some elite framing but crappy defense and while his overall numbers look ok i think his OPS since May 1st is in the low .600's.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Damn I think they probably forgave him for being horsefeathers on the radio complaining about PT but this was throwing a specific teammate under the bus and that's not ok. Yeah I mean he's partially right as discussed in the game thread last night but that's a really horsefeathers move to directly ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Wow, I knew the comments Miggy made were harsh but I didn't expect Rizzo to be so directly critical of them. Good stuff.

Re: Bears offseason

I saw a list on the Ringer (yes I actually go there occasionally) that had the line 9th i think. It's kind of funny after we had those Lovie teams that were ultimately decent but had terrible offensive lines that we have a garbage team with a good line. I used to think having strong offensive and de...

Re: TV thread

The Veep finale was weird. It didn't really seem like the season was building toward much with regards to Selina and that's fine, it was an ok season with some individually hilarious moments. But this episode seemed like it all the sudden put an entire seasons story arc into one episode and now all...

Re: Bulls offseason

If you don't sell Rondo as an expiring by taking on a longer term contract, you could easily be looking at 50m+ in 2018 cap space without even getting rid of Lopez (or worthless bit pieces like Payne). Eta - that would be with a max of anywhere from 24 to 36 depending on where the cap falls and the...

Re: having a good drafter, did Lloyd end up getting the Orlando GM job? He was always given a lot of credit for the mid aughts draft hits. Can he be brought back? I think his star lost a bunch of shine due to the fact that the Magic have probably been the worst lottery drafters in the league since ...

Re: Bulls offseason

How bad are we currently? Over/Under 25 wins? Figure we'll bring back Mirotic. And I guess we'll use Rondo to bring in a bad contract guy, with something attached. I'd say definitely under 30 wins I saw somewhere on twitter that a vegas capper estimated O/U at 35 wins, but I dont think thats possib...

Re: Bulls offseason

So in the last 6 months GarPax has... -traded 2 quality players in McDermott and Gibson for Payne and that white stiff. Now Payne has basically been rendered useless with Dunn (and Grant and MCW and maybe Rondo) on the roster. So we just gave away 2 decent trade chips for nothing. -then they take po...

Re: Bulls offseason

Oh and that pick was from the Deng trade which was made just to avoid the luxury tax. Rofl, we're so good at saving money, guys. Haha didn't think about it that way. We actually bought the pick that was used to draft Deng too. So we gave some cash to Phoenix and then 10+ years later it was given ba...

Re: Bulls offseason

The internet is destroying the Bulls. Every piece I've read on the trade is a complete destruction of the Bulls front office. This is awful and the worst thing is that this buys them at least 3-4 years until they can get canned. They've completely destroyed this franchise (which I'll give Pax some c...

Re: Bulls offseason

The Bulls did realize they didn't have to trade Butler, right? This. Again I've been on Team Blow It Up but this is not an acceptable return for him IMO. And then they blow the pick that they did acquire (IMO). My opinion is that they could have gotten similar or better value at the deadline and/or...
