Re: World Series Swag Thread

Did he recommend Binny's Beverage Depot for all of your beverage needs? There are SO many ad reads during games now. It's hard to believe Pat can broadcast the game sometimes between shilling Binny's, Benjamin Moore, Office Revolution, etc. I wanted to make a joke about how Pat should move his scor...

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

Porter or bust, I'd hate to see a low ceiling/high floor pick here at 7. I like Porter, but we need to be careful about drafting players with back issues. I'm sure the Bulls will do a full physical and MRI on him. I want to avoid drafting a player who is chronically injured. Porter has a high ceili...

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Salaries or teams being over the cap doesn't bother me at all, with the NBA. In a perfect world, you don't have guys making super teams, but that's just how it is at this point. It sucks you go into a season knowing there's only 2-3 teams that have a shot at winning it all. But, I think that's just...

This Laurel/Yanny thing is pissing me off because no matter how hard I try I cant hear anything that resembles Yanny. At least with the white and gold dress I eventually could see Blue/Black.

Wasted an entire season and the Bulls aren’t going to get a star in the draft. Guess we either get lucky in draft or FA or suck for a lot longer

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

There was a time toward the end of last round when the NBA playoffs seemed somewhat exciting because for once it felt slightly unpredictable. LeBron’s Cavs looked more vaunerable than ever and the Sixers were the hottest team in basketball and a legit (imo) threat to come out of the east. The warrio...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

This is unquestionably a good thing. Even in the article, it points out that his wRC+ is higher than it's ever been. If this version of Kris Bryant continues this exact performance and hits 18 homers this year, he'll still be a better hitter than he's ever been. But he won't. He'll hit around 30 at...

Lots of former Cubs and Cub prospects seem to be doing well. Villanueva and Soler for ML clubs.

Re: Is Jason Heyward Fixed?

Since posting this article, the Cubs as a team have combined for a .189/.247/.282/.528 line and scored 14 total runs in 7 games.

Edit: Oh yeah and Heyward is 1-16 since then for a .067/.222/.133/.356 line.

I don't think the Hawks are in a position to do anything but BPA.

Is it true that the Hawks will actually have some cap space to work this offseason?
