Re: Adbert up, Collins DFA’d

Were the Cubs at least seriously rumored to be trying hard to sign Furcal before the 2006 season? I thought they were pretty gung-ho about wanting a Pierre-Furcal 1-2, and it was viewed like the Dodgers basically swooped in at the relative last minute to sign him when he was leaning towards the Cub...

The Bears held a fan fest type of event recently in honor of the 100 seasons thing. There was a panel with Mitch and McMahon. McMahon gave Mitch a pair of sunglasses and a headband.

Re: 2018-19 NBA Thread

Pretty pleased with my bet on Toronto at +230 when it was 1-1.

Obviously that means GSW will come back and win.

Re: Cubs in agreement with Craig Kimbrel 3/$43m with 4th year option

was just checking In to see people's thoughts on the Kimbrel signing, nice to see it devolved into some kind of anti-trump thread fairly quickly, I guess things are pretty much as terrible as ever... See you guys in a couple years when Trump is your president again... nice to see you're still a nut...

as of April '17 https://twitter.com/ryanhannable/status/849003501833379840 So he may be interested in the Trump fundraiser this weekend.

he might just think it's a cool song and not care or even think about nugent's politics

that said, independently of that, there's still like a 99.99999% chance this white dude from alabama owns several MAGA hats.

Re: Kimbrel?

Morosi is on the Score saying that he's got another source, separate from Rosenthal's, who thinks the Cubs are frontrunners for Kimbrel.

I think he said it was another MLB executive who has been involved in the talks.

Re: Kimbrel?

I know its a pipe dream and who knows if Morrow is even alive much less in line to return but how awesome would this set up be in October: 9th - Kimbrel 8th - Morrow 7th - Strop 6th - Cishek Get Will Smith or Doolittle too for what little it's worth, matt spiegel was on for transition with the park...

Re: 2019 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Draft vaguely reminds me of our 2008 draft (Cashner, Shafer, Chris Carpenter, Justin Bristow early on). I actually liked that draft at the time, so I'll reserve judgment on this one, but time obviously hasn't made that class look all that great. I'm just curious what their plan is with all these ar...

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I most remember Trachsel from my first game at Wrigley Field. My dad was teaching me how to keep score. After Brian Hunter lead off the game with a double my dad turned to me and said, “Well, there goes the no hitter.” Only hit the Astros got that day. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHN/C...

If nothing else, he can join Phil Nevin, Joe Nathan, Dan Haren, and Jason Kendall (among others) on the All Wasn’t he a Cub for a Minute? Team. crazier than all of these combined, for me, is that steve trachsel was briefly on the 2007 team. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2398/2222216831_5ac660b8e2_b...

well, i mean, it does, kinda...definitely dramatically increases the likelihood. but it's because of the most basic math, not momentum.
