Until it comes out that he's retaining the services of a known vile spousal abuser and creating a partnership with one of the biggest threats to our democracy, he's a horsefeathering saint to me. https://apnews.com/33669ecef55d816961175641f2358613 https://www.nytimes.com/1996/11/20/sports/belle-sig...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I won't call the Giants a dynasty either. They were a lucky-hot second-tier team most of those, and they didn't win any of them consecutively. The last MLB dynasty was the Yankees. Were the 2009-15 Blackhawks a dynasty? Nope. And it always annoyed me that people tried to claim it. Anytime we have a...

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Russell sounds like he's reading the answers to every one of these questions like a robot, but he's directly answering questions from the reporters. He must've been coached on answers to almost anything he could possibly be asked.

I understand that he's nervous but this is weird as hell.

Mna, it seems like pretty much everyone is there. Who have we not seen yet? Baez, Rizzo, Zobrist, Lester...Almora? I know Baez and Lester are for sure there, I am not entirely sure if the others are there but I feel like I did see Zobrist in some pics. Also: https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/10964602...
