Re: National Fascism League

I hope the players STILL kneel during the anthem. Let the teams rack up fines, who cares? And if the stupid owners who voted for this rule don't like it, they can explain to the fans why they're cutting good players This. I'm not sure how this announcement did anything to make this better. The play...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

It's so annoying that the dumbest horsefeathering people in Chicago media basically created this story out of nowhere.

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?

No, I don't know why I'm still watching this horsefeathers, but just as a heads up, Fox (and therefore the White House) is blaming fire alarms for mass shootings now.

Some Fox News idiot (redundant) just said their thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the shooting in Florida. Can't even keep track any more.

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

Yeeeaaaaah, I think you're out on this limb on your own. It was a fairly simple play. Ball hit in outfield -> Kyle fields ball cleanly -> Kyle throws ball accurately -> Runner is out at home. If we're going to chock up Almora's highlight reel catches to skill, we can't chock up Kyle's routine plays...

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

Robbing that home run with his bare hand was great but the stars all aligned perfectly. I mean he was in the perfect spot, there was no wasted movement, and he timed his jump perfectly - but it still super lucky that the ball happened to be right where his hand was, not to discredit him or anything.

To your point about muddying the waters, you almost have to wonder how much the Democratic debates, in their current form, really help the party.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado - (Cubs in talks per Levine)

I think/hope that the upcoming Harper/Machado free agency has been talked about for so long that Theo has a very good idea of how much it'll take to get either, their interest in going to that level, and their ability to sign one of them if they are willing to go that far (no team is signing both of...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado - (Cubs in talks per Levine)

So what are the Cubs willing to give up for a rental? I can’t inagine he signs an extension without testing the market Logistically it'd have to be Russell or Baez, barring injury. Unless the price somehow drops to prospects, it doesn't make much sense otherwise. Any sort of Schwarber/Happ/Almora p...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Checking out the Cubs offensive leader board. Javy leads in every major category but OBP (Bryant) and BB (Schwarber). Javy has 6 BB. 4 are IBB. His last IBB was April 11. His last non-intentional BB was April 7. His stats track very closely to my MLB Road to the Show player. I used Javy as the base...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Mainly due to the Seager injury, Cubs now projected to have the best record in the NL by 6 games (95 wins), only behind Houston (100), Boston (98.5), and NYY (97). Dodger's projection went down 4 wins. The AL is going to be so boring this year...4 teams with playoff odds of over 95% already. Hopeful...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

i really think javy is gonna be an all star this year I don't see any reason why he shouldn't run away with the 2B vote. Murphy isn't going to play enough to get the attention, and Baez was second to him last year without a lot of other competition that I can see. I guess if Asdrubal Cabrera and th...
