Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Does the vaccine 'plans' that you guys are talking about imply that there's sufficient distribution infrastructure set up to actually get the vaccines to people? If that's just talking about production, little less excited....doesn't matter how many vaccines Pfizer etc can ship to the Walmarts and ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Now all vaccine shipments are being delayed by a week “due to weather”. At least here in suburban cook county. Not cool. Supposed to get mine tomorrow in the city. Hope they don't cancel on me. City should be fine. From what I was told, it’s only suburban Cook county. You likely would have received...

Re: Blackhawks 2021?

Hawks somehow with 2nd most points in the NHL. It's because they have played like 4 more games than anyone else, but still. I saw something that said they are 7-1-1 in their last 9, which seems fake but I can't recall them losing very much lately. I think they are 9-2-4 since they started out 0-3. ...

Re: The Politics Thread

Hadn't looked at this thread since right after news about Limbaugh died, so when I saw like 5 new pages I got excited and thought someone made a pro-Rush argument or something. Imagine the disappointment piling on as I scrolled through a(nother) semantics argument, save for a few good gifs. If peopl...

Parlayed over 2.5 on both games today because people have pretty much stopped pretending to work, but our nanny couldn't come so I'm on kid duty.

Re: Should we talk about the weather? (Hi-hi-hi!)

There are as many good fall days as there are winter days. But fall is like 3-4 weeks and winter is 5 months.

I am very over this snow. Yep, went to go clean off our car this morning just in case we need to go anywhere, and saw a girl in an SUV who thought it would be a good idea to be the first person to drive through our very unplowed alley.

Re: Jake is Back

I think you're overestimating Darvish's injury tendencies and underestimating how often the general population of pitchers gets hurt in general. Yu made 31 starts in 2019 and 12 in 2020, so let's be generous and say he's made his last 43 starts in a row. 2018 was mostly a lost year, but there was a...

Re: Jake is Back

Which you can say all of the same for Arrieta, only Darvish just got done doing the good stuff whereas Jake has been trending away for four years now, with a more recent injury history. If we're just focusing on 2021 Zips, which is fine because I think it's the best of the options, I'll go back to ...

Re: Jake is Back

I may have something similar re: 2018-present for Darvish, but to be clear the only performance I explicitly mentioned above was his 2021 ZiPS forecast. But even then I think if you take a large but logical timeframe, say after his TJS which strips out pre-injury and mid-20s Darvish that aren't ver...

Graham, Cruz and Lee met privately with Trump’s defense team. Just in case anyone thought this impeachment wasn’t a farce They should probably just stop then. That's definitely what I'm saying. My point couldn't be that jurors in a trial conspiring with the defense lawyers is a bad thing At the ris...

Re: Cubs Sign Jake Marisnick

Also, I would hope most other teams would be smarter than this, but if you are committing to a tear down, letting those 5-6 guys only hit against the pitchers they are good against will make them a lot easier/more attractive to trade in a few months .

Re: Blackhawks 2021?

I can't make any sense of this team right now, but big picture I'm still going with "Not good". Which, yes, is better than "historically bad". But there's just no way the power play stays anywhere near 36% (3rd in hockey), and while I think Lankinen has been a nice surprise and s...

Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

Lowrie signed back with the As, he may be broken for good but would’ve been a cheap flyer as a LHH 2B option who can do the contact thing. Looking at available FA remaining there aren’t many options, Kipnis, Marwin, Panik and maybe Asdrubal if you think he won’t be a butcher at 2B. Counterpoint: Ni...

Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

Given the news this morning that the Cubs will get to have 25% capacity at spring training games, I'm wondering if the updated budget numbers are based on them getting a heads up that they'll be able to have fans in Wrigley this year.

Re: RE: Re: Joc

My argument of 'bad', which is really more annoying, is that I don't like replacing a Cubs legend after non-tendering him to essentially end up with the exact same production with maybe a million dollars of savings. On the other hand they're moving on from the most blue lives matter guy on the team...

Re: RE: Re: Joc

I'm not really talking about injury, I'm talking about the guy who had to work his tail off in LF to just not suck at it, vs the guy who is actually good out there. Schwarber's lack of athleticism and lack of not being 23 anymore is a bigger red flag than Pederson's declining foot speed, imo. Both ...

Re: RE: Re: Joc

He's probably slightly better than Schwarber and he's getting significantly less money. It's a perfectly cromulent move all on its own. Does anybody remember what Schwarber’s arb projection was? I was thinking 8 vs Joc’s 7. Unless you really distrust arb projections, seems like the comp should be S...
