Re: soccer soccer soccer

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

I love that I work in a laid back office and have a mounted TV we can put the games on. Been able to watch so much more than I would normally.

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...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

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 ...

Re: Video Game Thread

Most of the Sony exclusives looke amazing. Last of Us 2 was breathtaking I was sorta disappointed in Spider-Man; it looked great, but the constant dialogue was corny and annoying. The Samurai game was gorgeous I love the character Spider-Man but I don't like games with lots of button mashing with p...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

Someone explain why this dude is all hung up on PER. That, WS or BPM (and VORP way behind, I guess) all seem like ways to try and cumulatively judge one player's overall value vs. another, and LeBron tops Jordan in all of those except for PER, where Jordan JUST edges him out.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

This seems kind of strange. Maybe I’ve been out of the loop but I don’t remember anyone making fun of him for going on the DL with the flu or for going on the DL 2 times in general.

And despite some groaning about his iffy start I haven’t felt like there has been an abundance of hate for Yu at alll.

.379 BABIP Right now he seems like a high contact guy in a peak power year at a peak power age His BABIP has always trended high. Not .379 but it was .338 last year. If there's some regression that is fine as long as he is contributing on both sides of the plate and continuing to play defense at a ...
