Re: Wrigley Renovations and Related Wrigleyville Stuff

Just looked at it on google arial and it looks great. Question? What's getting built on Addison? I know the Park and Starwood motel are being built down the 3rd baseline on Clark, but I don't know what's getting built down the first baseline behind Addison. Thanks in advance... :flythew: That's unr...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Anyone think there's a shot that Albert takes over the CF duties full-time by say the all-star break? Probably not, but if he can just show a consistent approach at the plate his glove could justify abandoning the platoon with Jay. This is what I'm hoping for sooner rather than later, his glove is ...

Re: The Cardinals

manny machado is worth a horsefeathers ton of money and is going to be like 26 or something when he hits FA. i doubt whatever he gets will constitute an overpay. it will be a lot of horsefeathering money though.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

yeah, I really feel like happ is going to end up providing value to us as the centerpiece of a trade. Nah, he's the Zobrist replacement when he leaves in 2 years and Javy fails to be a viable everyday player because he can't hit RHP. zobrist is actually here 3 more years, tho i guess that's sorta l...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

God, I am going to be so happy watching Javy put up an .800+ OPS this season and shut this stupid talk up. i would be ecstatic to see that happen but there's basically no reason to believe that do i think he can? sure, he's insanely gifted. do i expect it? far from it. i'd say it's something like 8...

Was it 1997 or spring 1998 that there were lots of Piazza to the Cubs rumors, but it would have had to have involved Wood most likely? i don't know about those, but there was famously a trade pretty much set to happen that didn't involve wood in 1998 with the marlins. then the mets topped our offer...
