Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I stayed at the Bellagio last week for a conference. It is across from that sign. They weren't running Manilow then. Also the people pictured are way under dressed for this time of year. It was low 50s at night last week. Granted the street performers and strippers hang out near there and don't wea...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Apparently you didn't hear that Schwarber isn't on the trade block, so we'll have to lure a team to take on Heywards contract by using Chatwood, Russell, Duensing, Kintzler, Bote, or Caratini. :lol: It's funny how you disappeared when the cubs were on top of the world and now you're back with a ven...

Re: What If Article about Peavy Trade

But when Sutcliffe allegedly persuaded Peavy to launch into the Cubs’ folksy celebration song, Axelrod didn’t need to track down the Padres’ star. He was seated right next to him at the bar. “I don’t know how to quantify how close it was, but I was (in Las Vegas) because I thought it was going to h...

NSBB sees through the smoke and mirrors; all of the farm systems are actually reversed! The Cubs' is actually top 5 instead of bottom 5!

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Eloy is not going to be anything special I have a hunch the overwhelming majority of Cub fans would love to trade Quintana for Jimenez & Cease. As a trade chip I'd take him back, sure. As a big league player, he is a DH or a bad corner outfielder. He's going to have to hit at a very special lev...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

The amount of spin from people inexplicably trying to defend the nonsense idea that Zobrist is the only real candidate for any kind of decline (please spare me the wobbly, nebulous, "b-b-b-but I was only talking about the special decline that old guys have, honest!") is giving my hair the...

yeah, even position player wise, both rizzo and heyward (lol) are at that stage. primes don't start at 26-27 anymore.

meanwhile, the mainstream reporters are taking direct quotes from Theo: https://twitter.com/PJ_Mooney/status/1070796370544615424 Obviously doesnt mean they are out on Harper. In fact he might be alluding to the Cubs potentially trying to make it work, but it definitely confirms that we are under a ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

The long and short of it is that all of our beat writers except Sharma are morons, and Sharma's not a big time inside sources guy. If Passan/Rosenthal say something, give it some weight, otherwise it's either nonsense or coming from someone who puts out enough nonsense that you can't really say wha...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I think I must be remembering wrong, but in my mind I got a push notification on my phone that he was signed and had no idea they were even in the mix. A couple of weeks ago I even looked for the thread to try and confirm that but couldn't find it. http://www.northsidebaseball.com/archive/viewtopic...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Again, strongly disagree. I'd genuinely be surprised if there were even 10 teams even just considering that type of mega contract. well ten teams would be a lot to choose from. so would half that. and given the types of franchises likely to be involved in that grouping, i'd have a hard time seeing ...

Thinking aloud here...does anyone remember who first reported the Cubs as being serious players for Heyward? I seem to remember it coming somewhat out of nowhere, as people (especially the local media) weren't expecting a big splash signing in 2015-16 after they signed Lester the year before. We sp...

Disagree strongly that there's going to be a ton of teams willing to pay him what he wants. age 26 generational (blah blah debate over this word) talents don't come through free agency but like once a decade, if that. i think all the public disinterest teams are showing is almost entirely negotiati...
