Re: Politics & Current Events

If he bails, the GOP have less reason/incentive to protect him. If he stays and runs, they have little choice but TO protect him. The guy is dumb, but he's not THAT dumb; he's a craven survivalist. I really think he might actually be that dumb. We keep talking about why he may or may not bail as if...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm already resigned to the fact that he's going to be the nominee in 2020, and so I don't even really want any potential challengers, especially sad sacks like Kasich who will just serve as punching bags so Trump can rally his base again. Let Trump do the same rambling, incoherent rally speeches th...

Re: SEAL BOY OUT

I’m just saying in terms of people thinking LaStella is this great pinch hitter, Heyward has done what he does as a PH. It’s not like we lost anything for the people who put weight in to LaStella’s pinch hitting being a skill if freaking Heyward can do what he does/did.* *I’m pretty certain PH real...

Re: SEAL BOY OUT

Heyward is pretty close to LaStella in career PH numbers, he’s like ~3 hits or BBs away from having better numbers. I think we can overcome. Which historic free agent was Tommy helping cripple the Cubs from being able to sign? I’m just saying in terms of people thinking LaStella is this great pinch...

Re: Ronald Torreyes is now a Cub

On the one hand, he isn't good.

On the other hand, he's short and scrappy and best case scenario hits for a totally empty batting average that will make him the new first half Almora to the worst fans, just without defense or future potential.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

My buddy just said he saw a rumor on ESPN about Schwarber and Azlolay for Edwin Diaz.

Even being a huge Schwarber fan, contingent on making a big offensive free agent signing, I...don't hate it?

All he cares about is adoration. The day after midterms is essentially the day after the last Cubs game for us. Based on today's news, it sounds like he's just letting Melania run the White House. Enjoy it while you can.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Sofa, if 2016 was more about Obama than Clinton (setting aside the flaws/faults of the Democratic party and whatever else), how come we didn't see the backlash in 2012? Total Republican votes went from 62m in 2004 to 59.9m in 2008 to 60.9m in 2012 to 63m in 2016. Meanwhile Dems went 59m, 69.5m, 65.9...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I don't think it was 100% unavoidable. There's a world out there where someone had the nerve not to sign Seabrook to a long extension. And as good as Crawford is, there's a reason we got so much mileage out of bad goalies when we were good. But it was always going to be a very narrow path. Yea, and...

Yeah you can point out plenty of flaws for both Q and Bowman, especially over the last couple years, but I think the reality is this is pretty much an inevitably for a cap league dynasty team. You get as much success as you can out of your group of players, and then you are left with bloated contrac...

It's hard to talk about coaching without sounding too much like a meatball sports fan, but...I'm fine with it.
