Re: Who's Your Top Favorite Cubs from Your Lifetime?

Only counting players whose playing days I have strong memories of 1. Sosa 2. Baez 3. Dawson 4. Lee 5. Wood 6. Sandberg (as a kid he was easily #1, I was a HUGE fan, but my impression of him hasn't aged well) 7. Rizzo 8. ARam 9. Darvish 10. Soriano Honorable mention: Big Z, Schwarber, Bryant, Marmol...

Re: Moving

I moved this summer and while not the first time, it was the worst. The most stuff we've ever own, and just my wife, kid and I to do all the work. I find the packing/loading phase to be the worst. I think that it because it seems like you almost always grossly underestimate the amount of horsefeathe...

Re: 2020 roster

I know what he meant, I suppose I meant to ask who you guys think he was referring to in particular, or if the issue is more systemic. I think it is an issue that can be fixed (I feel like Schwarber seemed to be prone to a particular approach early in the season and far less so later), but I wonder ...

Re: 2020 roster

I almost expect him to be moved this offseason, especially if the FO feels like he is reticent to sign an extension. Theo said something during the presser on Monday that caught my attention - he seemed to imply that there were players they may have liked to trade last offseason who they didn't beca...

These are all the vague comments Jesse needs to run the KB is being aggressively shopped and likely traded for two months of click bait articles https://twitter.com/mlbastian/status/1178772036463812609?s=21 It doesn't make much sense, but I have had a growing feeling that KB is going to be traded. ...

the true sign of how bad it was is that I genuinely thought they might go with Samwell's democracy idea. Yeah, I thought they might just go full on horsefeathers the bed there for a second.

She ran up behind him and jumped to kill him, why is this such a controversy? She's an athlete. Maybe she grabbed something to pole vault. Why does it matter?

Re: Game of Thrones

Like many others, I was a bit surprised and disappointed that more named characters weren't killed off, if only because it took away from the gratification at the climax. OTOH, I think most were expecting a higher death toll among main characters, so expectations subverted? Still, a little put off b...

We’ve lost Duke, all is lost. I don’t understand how tight things are. Like, are we not gonna resign Kris Bryant? What are we looking at here They'll have to the money to resign KB.

I feel bad for hating latroy as much as I did me too. but to be fair he gave us no choice I never hated LaTroy. He was for the Cubs what he had always been, which was a great set-up man who failed spectacularly as a closer. I hated Dusty for repeatedly putting him in a position he had been proven u...

I mean, I guess they added Soria to an already good bullpen. But that team could use a couple more bats and a starting pitcher.


They did add Mike Moustakas.

Re: Video Game Thread

So yeah, it's a new game. Set well before the original Fallout (25 years after the bombs), enough that most of the usual Fallout factions wouldn't have been formed yet. Rumor is that it might have an online component (I really hope it doesn't, and the rumors make me less excited), and will be a surv...

A short shower (let's say less than 5 minutes) makes sense. 90 seconds or less is absurd and gross. iirc, the way the article described it is that he turns the water on briefly to get wet, then turns it off while he scrubs up. Then he rinses off. So it running water for 90 seconds, but the "sh...

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Had to go with the Schwarber option. .950 would exceed my expectations, but not by a whole lot. I think he's gonna bounce back in a big way.
