Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The replies to that tweet make it seem like that was a broad interpretation, and the actual tweak is that they aren't allowing counting stats to be considered, because obviously, which actually helps the players.

Re: Video Game Thread

Been starting to see signs that they weren't quite ready for this level of play though...looks like a bunch of people have figured o...

Re: South Bend Shuttle

I'd bring Hamilton up tomorrow and start him against the Reds for a couple of games. You could really sit any of the three starters in the OF, although Schwarbs hits Mahle pretty well. But Happ and Heyward have been absolute trash against the Reds projected starters. Combined, those two are: 2/30 a...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Guys, you've been alive for the last 20+ years. There's no scenario where the Republicans do anything but try to undermine and delegitimize a Democratic WH. It was flat out their stated objective the last time the Democrats won. How the election plays out will do nothing to soften their bull horsef...

Re: Politics & Current Events

This all came out of a discussion where people, yourself included, were vaguely talking about how there was somehow going to be motivation/incentive for people who are, presumably, opposed to the idea of Trump winning a second term, to end the election as quickly as possible regardless of the true ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Wasn’t Kipnis hitting over .300 like a week ago? Can anyone beside Happ and Heyward hit on this team? Team wide we're at a 102 wRC, 3rd best walk rate, 4th worst K rate, 6th in total offensive fWAR, though some of that is helped by baserunning (5th) and defense (9th). Happ and Heyward are over 150 ...

Re: Jose Martinez traded to Cubs

These moves, assuming all the main guys are healthy (and not sub replacement players, looking at you Javy), should give us a lineup that wrecks lefties. You could run out something like this: KB Souza Contreras Martinez Baez Rizzo Happ Bote Hoerner Not going to help you much against, say, Gray/Bauer...

Largely agreed on the parenthetical. And to be fair, I don't remember/know if the states in play in 2018 lend themselves to the 'good'/important states for 2020.

PA, WI, and MI being historically blue is meaningless IMO. By 2030 those, along with MN will probably be lean red states or tossups at best. Just look at 2018 then. Those 3 states netted 6 dem house seats, each elected a dem senator by an average margin of +10, and each elected a dem governor(2 of ...

Of all the things that are driving me towards the NBA and away from every other version of American sportsball, social activism would not have been on my radar as a young adult.

I think the gulf between "I'm voting against the idea of black/woman president" and "I'm voting to own the libs/I'm voting Republican no matter what" is now so tiny that it's practically non-existent. All they're defined by now is their irrational hatred of all things Democratic...

Well, now that the bullpen doesn't look like a total dumpster fire, just slot Quintana into Chatwood's spot and hope Chatwood can provide a live pen arm if he gets healthy this year.
