Re: The Cardinals

I could see them landing Girardi if he wants back in. He's not great but competent enough, and checks all the cardinal-ly boxes. Too ethnic Nah, Italians are fine as long as they get back to [expletive] Hill by dark. edit: profanity filter took out a derogatory term for Italians that is the name of...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

There is a logic to the Brewers offseason if you're in Brewer's management rather than a Brewer fan. Despite 2017, the Brewers are not quite ready to compete for the big prize. Spending big money on a free agent frontline pitcher would certainly further raise already unreasonable expectations from t...

Re: Jake Arrieta Signs with the Phillies for 3/$75M

Without looking too closely, I would bet the net WAR for the Sandberg trade was mid-50's and the Sosa trade was probably around 50.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Unless, you foresee a future three to five years from now when you will have to pay Bryant, Rizzo, Russell, Baez, Schwarber, Quintana, et al a lot more money than you will be paying them in the nearer term.

Re: 2018 Cubs Convention

The most important advice has already been given. Decide what forums you want to attend and be early for them. If you are in one of the forums that addresses questions from the floor and want a question answered, get in line early.

Re: Chris Bosio Fired

David, You may well be right. Probably, it's likely that you're right. I doubt that such feedback from a potential free agent would be the "sole" reason that the Cubs would let Bosio go. Certainly if they were committed to keeping Bosio that wouldn't cut much ice. Perhaps, as you suggest, ...

Re: Chris Bosio Fired

Based on exactly zero evidence, let me suggest a contrarian view. Is it possible that Arrieta or more likely Davis has let the Cubs know that he would under no circumstances return if Bosio were still the pitching coach. I think Jake certainly said all the right things about Bosio's contribution to ...

Re: The Cardinals

When Andy MacPhail first got to the Cubs he (or his intern) would respond to email questions pretty promptly. He'd ask pretty sensible questions back. I'm actually pretty certain it was MacPhail himself.

Re: The Cubs stink

My first visit to Wrigley Field was in August of 1953 (a week or two before Ernie Banks first joined the Cubs). You're all fair weather fans. Holy crap! How the hell are you? Tim, I'm good. I think maybe I'll stop lurking and participate a little bit. I've got too much time on my hands. This retire...
