Re: Chicago trip tomorrow, looking for a little advice

I guess it doesn't really fit in either the museum or the fine drinking categories, but if you end up downtown for any of the museums, make sure to take an hour or two and do the river walk. Stop and get a couple overpriced drinks, watch the boats, etc. There's not any award winning restaurants/bars...

That was an incredible second half, and Brazil/Belgium is going to be so much fun.

Re: Baez impregnates Baez

I don't mean this as any sort of judgment on his character, but Baez, especially hot streak Baez, seems the type to be back on the field like...tomorrow.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Obviously getting off track here in this thread. It's good to see the steps Almora has made this year, and it's really fun to watch him in the outfield, even if it's in a Jim Edmonds type of way. Whatever worth you put in it, he's got the intangibles and leadership qualities that can help a team lik...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Heyward would just move to CF and Almora and Happ are the 4th OF or traded. Yep, platoon heyward/almora in CF and if you get desperate and need to trade for pitching, just throw Happ in a deal. With some simplifying assumptions (Schwarber 'full time' in left, Zobrist gone): Almora/Happ Heyward Mach...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Setting aside Harper's struggles this year, since I generally believe they're fluky and won't continue... With the reemergence of Russell and Heyward, and Baez looking like he has enough 'hot' in his hot/cold streaks to be very valuable, at what point does Harper start to look like a square peg in a...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

It's about to be July, and in the next few days Javy should become the most valuable player on the team per fWAR, unless Willson goes on a tear that eclipses Javy's. The inmates are running the asylum.

There are probably bigger takeaways from this, but the encouraging part to me was that she basically got outspent 10-1, and still won handily. It shows that the typical 'apathetic' democrat voters (young, more skewed towards minorities) are taking their own initiative to get involved, do their own r...

Re: CEJ to the DL with Shoulder Inflammation

Really gonna need Justin Wilson to step up while Edwards is out. Cishek and Pedro can’t do all the heavy lifting in the 6-8 innings and Cishek himself is already overworked. I thought we already could use another dependable bullpen arm even with help, now I really think we need one. It sucks Maples...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

It seems like you accept Russell is, at the very least, equal to Turner. So when comparing cores, isn’t it telling that for the Nationals, Turner is untouchable, while for the Cubs, we have superior talent that needs to be taken care of first?
