Re: Free Lawyer Advice Anyone?

Are you sure it’s not some scam?? “Hey, your DLis being suspended. Contact me and for a fee I can get it taken care of” sort of thing?? A simple google search of "Lou Neg esq." and "Lou Neg attorney" results in zero matches. that is really suspicious. have you tried any other se...

do you guys actually know anyone in the military or is this one of those things where we show respect for the troops by pretending they aren’t mostly extremely conservative people who love trump?

Re: Breaking Up Double Plays

I ask because I think I would have them just go straight in every time. And this is from a purely competitive standpoint. Not even talking about injuries. I think over the course of a season you’re likely to give the other team more free outs at first base for accidentally (or in the umpire’s judge...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Someone in the game thread called it correctly, I think: KB is becoming a RH Joey Votto. When he was a prospect, I just accepted that we had a flawed masher on our hands; a guy who'd hit 35-40 dongs & K 150+ times a year. It's hard to fathom how good this guy is, to improve so much while in the...

Re: Wrigleyville-ish parking question

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

This. No. Neither of those things is inherently different from the basic game of baseball where you have 3 outs per 9 innings to advance a runner from home to home. It is much different. And dumb. And it will only slow the pace of play, because nothing slows things down like guys in running positio...

Personally swatting down whatever that little thing was that the Pirates had going on for a couple of years. This will be the enduring Arrieta memory for me. First playoff appearance of the Theo era, franchise on a 9 game playoff losing streak, wild card winner-take-all game on the road. He crushed...

Re: Jake Arrieta Close to Signing with the Phillies

I'm not sure how to make this make sense in words, but arrieta was a guy who was way harder for me to watch than he should have been. Maybe it was just because his 2015 was so outrageous, but the last two years were just hard to watch even thought ultimately he was still pretty valuable. he felt co...
