Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

Either Heyward or Chatwood has a monster year. 4+ WAR minimum. I'm not sure I want to consider what circumstances would have to come together for Chatwood to even get that opportunity... I’m starting to talk myself in to Chatwood being a reasonably valuable thing out of the bullpen so let’s get nut...

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

The starting pitching is good at points in the season and worse than mediocre most of the season, but not terrible. The Cubs have multiple pitchers on the DL. Hendricks loses velocity and becomes incredibly hittable. Hamels performers like a number 5 starter, Lester can't pitch past the 5th inning ...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

I will not cheer for billionaires becoming even richer. I can't comprehend the mindset of regular people who do. Also, not really apropos of this thread, but I recall someone asking during the 2016 post-season (maybe late regular season?) whether each fan here would trade a Trump presidency for a g...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

If Crawford wants to come back next week and throw up three shutouts before March 1 while some top team's goalie blows an ACL, then sure, grab a first round pick for him and let him get back to the playoffs. Other than that, he's the best goalie we're going to have next year (and this year if we ma...

Re: Politics & Current Events

They eliminated many of the standard deductions and limited others that middle-class people used. I'm not sure if that means taxes went up, but people are getting less of a return or having to pay. The only people the new tax helped are wealthy. I didn't know Bob Sanders was rolling in cash. They a...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

It will be interesting to see what happens with Crawford. Do the Hawks even want him back? Things have been going better without him. Should they allow him to decide when he's ready? The guy just spent basically a year recovering from one concussion and then got another. He knows what he's risking ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Milton Bradley was perfect for my dumb fandom at the time because I was still incredibly naive and/or had blinders to player's personal lives, but also thought I was a genius sabermetric fan who just discovered walk rates and assumed every hitter was basically a .270 hitter who just had good or bad ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I always assumed the main benefit to starting with a reliever was that you can start with a reliever with opposite splits of the "starter" that would come in for the 2nd inning. If you have Rich Hill up in your rotation,the opposition would pack the line up with righties, and the top of t...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I can see that to a certain extent, but it does seem a whole lot easier to just wait until the Dems pick someone, and then just take that person down right before the election so it's too late to fix it (see HRC). If they start picking off Dem candidates, just makes it more likely we'll settle on so...
