Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm pretty sure what they think is: The economy is doing great right now because of him. If it goes bad, it's Obama and the Democrats' fault.

Drop Judge (OF), add Contreras (C/OF) (-$75, +$25 = $950)


Funny enough, I now have Schwarber as my C and Contreras in the OF.

We probably can't afford him, but in the hypothetical world where we could, how does it work this early in the season? I keep thinking back to August/September waivers, where it's based on your record...does that apply this early on? Or is this a different situation entirely? I think for a while it...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Carl was screwed up by the coaching staff. They spent the entire spring teaching him a new motion, which he was very successful with in spring, that was blatantly illegal and then told him to just go back to his old motion. I'm not surprised he's struggling even more than usual.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Colorado got 1 pt against the Blues, putting them 7 pts up. If the Hawks end up not getting any points against the Jets, which seems likely with them now down 4-2 with 3 minutes left, their season is officially over. Turns out it was an offsides play, the Hawks are only down 1, but really, it's stil...

Re: Addison Russell

I think I hated Antonio alfonseca but I’m not 100% sure. I absolutely disliked Sergio mitre. At least as a pitcher. I remember not liking AA up until he chest belly bumped that ump that called Alou's double foul against the Cards. Ironically, apparently that ump is now the head of the instant repla...

Back in college, I had a friend who tried to make a chicken dish using green pepper jelly. They came out about that color. We called it Windex Chicken.

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

The Cubs don't do too bad in the first half, but really don't excel either. They enter July with a 43-42 record (1 game to be made up) and split the series against the Pirates. Addison Russell has been DFA'd after batting .190 through the start of June, when evidence emerges that he continues to har...

Re: Are you excited for the Cubs start of the season

Yes, but it's probably less about the team and more about me just being happy that baseball is back.
