Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

My buddy just said he saw a rumor on ESPN about Schwarber and Azlolay for Edwin Diaz.

Even being a huge Schwarber fan, contingent on making a big offensive free agent signing, I...don't hate it?

Everyone go delete their bad Avenatti takes. Was anyone here a fan? I don't recall that at all. Yeah doing a quick search on phone, no one here seemed to have fallen for it.

All he cares about is adoration. The day after midterms is essentially the day after the last Cubs game for us. Based on today's news, it sounds like he's just letting Melania run the White House. Enjoy it while you can.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Sofa, if 2016 was more about Obama than Clinton (setting aside the flaws/faults of the Democratic party and whatever else), how come we didn't see the backlash in 2012? Total Republican votes went from 62m in 2004 to 59.9m in 2008 to 60.9m in 2012 to 63m in 2016. Meanwhile Dems went 59m, 69.5m, 65.9...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I don't think it was 100% unavoidable. There's a world out there where someone had the nerve not to sign Seabrook to a long extension. And as good as Crawford is, there's a reason we got so much mileage out of bad goalies when we were good. But it was always going to be a very narrow path. Yea, and...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Yeah you can point out plenty of flaws for both Q and Bowman, especially over the last couple years, but I think the reality is this is pretty much an inevitably for a cap league dynasty team. You get as much success as you can out of your group of players, and then you are left with bloated contrac...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

It's hard to talk about coaching without sounding too much like a meatball sports fan, but...I'm fine with it. This team has all the motivation/veteran leadership they need sitting in the locker room already. What they need is someone to teach these fringe-y young players how to develop into reliabl...

Smyly is a...relatively valuable piece to giving to a team who we just saved $6m. Possible middle infielder incoming?

So who else is feeling an exponentially increasing sense of crushing dread about next week? Eh, I still trust the polling, and the Dems seem to have enough of a cushion in the House to take control even if the votes come out more Republican than expected. My pessimism is more along the lines of lik...
