Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

https://twitter.com/NFLDraftBites/status/964701861218586624 Have seen some speculation that Robinson gets franchised, but I'd love to add him. I'd take him over Landry easily. He had a disappointing year in 2016 (probably Bortles related) then tore his ACL. I feel like Landy is more of a sure bet b...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Not sure if this should be its own thread. A group of friends and I are looking to make a weekendish trip to Wrigley this year. I'm the only member of the group that has been before. We don't really care about a particular series. Would like to do Thurs-Fri-Sat, but I know there aren't many Thursda...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Looking through Baseball Reference and it seems that I had erased from my mind that Luis Valbuena was our primary 3B for the three seasons before Bryant. When I think of Valbuena, the first thing that still comes to my mind is that breakout series he had against the Cubs in 2009 as a member of the ...

I'm pretty sure it actually bumped the Brewers up to the best team in MLB. That's how these things work.


The Brewers are the best team by default for continuing to trick Theo into acquiring valuable players

Guessing it is all arranged to potentially fit Harper. The Cubs have Zobrist (12.5m) and Cishek (6.5m) on the books in 2019 but do not in 2020.

https://twitter.com/CarrieMuskat/status/963090667219009536 Schwarbs sure loves his America shorts. I saw a picture of Duensing and Lester playing catch on twitter earlier and they both had them on too. Wonder if they already had a themed day? It's possible. I've just noticed him wearing these a lot .

Sounds like Theo made one last call to Jake’s contingent before finalizing the Yu deal. Reportedly he asked if Jake would be willing to accept a similar deal and was told no.

Not that this is really an area where you want to be every single year but kind of crazy that the Cubs have signed MLB trade rumors #1 or #2 free agent in 3 of the last 4 offseasons
