Re: Politics & Current Events

Whoa, and now (Moscow born) Epshteyn resigns? Was HE the reason Nunes ran to the White House...and then retracted his previous statements? Is this why Comey visited the White House yesterday? This going down on a Saturday...one of the few that Trump decided to stay in the WH for?! :stickman: https:...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Spicer starts the press briefing by bringing out Sessions to talk about immigration and sanctuary cities. Like that was the biggest thing to happen in the last few days. I'm really, really hoping they're dumb enough to let him take questions, and everyone just ignores everything he's saying and asks...

Re: Politics & Current Events

It's going to be one of these idiots that eventually unravels all of this. Trump and Bannon are too well protected and used to getting out of controversy. Going after Carter Page, Nunes, Manafort, etc is the way really break this thing open. How is Bannon well protected and used to getting out of c...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Fair, I guess it was dumb to make it sound like no one has thought about this/debated this before. But if Trump is going to cut all these programs on the basis of efficiency, I guess I don't get why no one questions the military for the same reasons. Especially given Trump's relatively unique positi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I feel like I'm missing something obvious here because I never really see this being discussed, so someone help me out please: In terms of the budget, the standard Republican defense on all these cuts is that they are getting rid of wasteful spending/inefficiencies/etc. That's fine, easy talking poi...

Re: The (Last?) World Baseball Classic Game Thread

Eh, for the 2017 version of our bullpen, he's our 6th inning guy. Not going to worry too much about it given how 80% of our starters are going to go 6+ regularly. Strop, Edwards, Koji, Monty, Davis....we'll be fine.

Re: the tax returns 1. Small point to CubinOK - they switched around the deadlines this year...partnerships due 3/15, corporations due 9/15.

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #27)

I only went out to a bar for two of the playoff games (game 1 NLCS) (game 2 WS) the Montero slam was something I will never forget, high fives all around, beer flying everywhere, and half of the bar missed the Dexter HR. i had essentially the exact same experience at cortland's garage I had that ex...

Re: Talk Arrieta here

I've never loved a Cubs player more than I loved Jake Arrieta in the days surrounding the one game playoff against PIttsburgh. Now he's probably not even top 15 of my favorite Cubs. Speaks more to how amazing the rest of this roster is, but still...be a solid number two this year and then enjoy the ...

I'll go out on a limb and say it was definitely the best NLCS game 6 in Wrigley history.

Trump tweets about fixing the education system, an hour later makes two failed attempts at spelling hereby before finally getting it right on the third try. Hear by and hearby if anyone was wondering. Perfect.

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Adding a fixed Heyward and a whole season of Schwarbs to a 103 win team is almost unfair. i mean you did overlook the losing career-year fowler (in that statement) but i think heyward's bounceback will cover for that. Assuming the Almora/Jay platoon can match Heyward's 2016 output (1.6 WAR), we'd j...

Just to give an idea of how many moments there were overall, just for the NLCS in my notes, I had 70. When this is all done, I'd love to have you publish your notes.
