Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

I will admit that I have no idea what Boone is talking about in the context of arguing with the umpire. Like I get the positive connotation of 'savages in the box', but how does that at all relate to them being angry with the strike zone? I thought it was a bad lip reading thing until I actually pl...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

This is random but I was just looking at the postseason OPS of most of the Cubs that have played multiple postseasons with the team during this run and its amazing that we'd had a moderate level of postseason success including a championship and 6 series wins. Schwarber 1.016 Ross .858 Bryant .743 ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

What kind of punishment do you think is fair for questioning someone's citizenship and telling them to go back to their country? None? For a gas station clerk? I'm going to say a suspension is pretty good. Suspension plus mandatory "don't be an horsefeathers" course would be better. I'm n...

Re: Politics & Current Events

"Suspended from his job." Suspended. That and the white woman in the background with the look of 'can't you just leave, you're interrupting me buying my scratch offs and Newports'. Fun times. He's a gas station clerk, not a cop or city official, I don't need him to lose his job. What kind...

I for one am shocked that Trump's band of idiot followers are repeating Trump's rhetoric and again feel emboldened to be outwardly racist. https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/7/17/20698592/police-investigate-video-of-naperville-clerk-telling-customer-go-back-to-their-country A video posted to social ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

So Marisnick destroys Lucroy, giving him a concussion and a broken nose and he gets a two game suspension. Last night, an Angels relief pitcher plunked Marisnick intentionally in the upper back and gets a three game suspension. I know it’s a pitcher so he’s not going to pitch every game. I’m fully ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

- Trubisky improved much more from year 1 to year 2 than a typical QB. Optimistically, you could attribute that to his lack of starting experience in college and expect another above average jump from year 2 to 3, BUT there's not a lot of objective evidence to back that up - A few more Mitch nugget...

Cubs PR vs Barstool.

The barstool guys made clear that they love baseball ops guys and think Ricketts is the coolest owner in all of sports.

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Unless Caratini is on the move or Contreras is primarily going to the OF I just don't get it at all. With as weak as this bench is already they simply can't afford to roster 3 catchers, especially when one is of the no hit variety. There's already enough offensive black holes. Not to mention that i...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

My disappointment would (so far this is all internet spec and I might be getting miffed for nothing) largely lie in handing the keys to the one of the worst receivers in the league whom hasn't shown much interest in improving his game. Are you talking about Willson Contreras? The converted infielde...

He's shown no interest in getting better at catcher because all his interest lies in being the best left fielder he can be.
