Re: Talk Arrieta here

Take with a Spring Training sized grain of salt but here's an article suggests that Arrieta is having release point issues again

Now confirmed by the Dayton AD, Archie has officially resigned to take the IU job. Great pickup for the Hoosiers.

Re: Championship Rings...Who gets them?

Billy and Ryne are both ambassadors for the Cubs so I suspect they will get rings like many employees will. I read an article about how Neil Ramirez and Federovic will be getting rings so I'm assuming everyone who appeared for the team will.

Re: Bears offseason

The bear rightfully fired lovie 6 years ago for winning, but not frequently enough. And now 3 years into Ryan Pac's tenure the quarterback depth chart is mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez.

He's had his travel ban shot down twice in court, had his national security advisor resign, and had other choices turn down the position. I understand the concern...and it could pass.

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Gonzaga, Xavier, and South Carolina have never made a Final Four, let alone a title game. Baylor hasn't made a Final Four since 1950. This year was South Carolina's first tourney wins since 1973, and they've never advanced past this round. I thought I read that SC had never even made a sweet 16 unt...

He did only pitch 11 innings in the series, but he was pretty damn good. I think if he came on in relief in game 7 and shut the Indians down to win the WS, he probably would have.

Yes but that didn't take into account Oregons injury so I had no choice but to remain hopeful.

Of course it also didn't account for Wagner to play his worst game since his freshman year

Bummer ending for you UMFan, but you kinda got the shot you wanted there at the end. Nice run Cubs won the World Series 2 killer offensive rebounds by Oregon that shouldn't have happened. Though when we took the 3 point lead with 2 mins left it was ours but just couldn't score those last 2 points. ...
