Re: 2021 Draft Thread

So Jack Leiter is now working 96-100 (if the TV gun is to be believed) which was definitely not something he could do last year.

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

I'm sure that there's a price at which Watt makes sense. But the Bears are addicted to aging defensive players with more name than tread left on the tires, and the price at which they get their fix isn't really the point. As bad as the Bears have been at drafting and developing QBs, their inability...

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

Hate reading why Ballard lost the job to Pace when he was right. refresh my memory, what was it about? I believe that former bears staffer and occasional XFL exec Greg Gabriel said something about suspecting the bears didn’t want Ballard since he was a part of the organization and knows what needs ...

Re: Are we getting Black Monday II? Bears offseason thread

I think the Colts, Eagles, and Wentz did pretty well with this deal. The Eagles got multiple picks, including a first rounder if Wentz succeeds. The Colts get an established veteran QB with upside at a fair price. Wentz is going into a fairly stable situation in Indy with decent odds of making the ...

Re: Should we talk about the weather? (Hi-hi-hi!)

I don't think we will have those crazy fires this year. Its been raining so much, and at higher altitudes snowing, that forests won't be the tinderboxes that they were the years represented in your images. At least not up here, but I thought northern California was also getting the precipitation. I...

You'll be stuck inside looking at scorched earth and animals on fire as your rebreather sputters and dies. ETERNAL HELL SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

Snowboarding for me but the outdoors are amazing in the winter.

Re: The Cubs Farm Teams in 2021

I assume this has been explained elsewhere, but with R and A- gone, do high school picks report to A ball or spend a couple months to a year in Mesa?

Re: 2020-21 Offseason Top Prospects Lists

Out of curiosity, anyone know where Kiley ranked the Cubs this year? 26th seems a bit low because there seems to be enough raw talent in the system, 17th seems reasonable, but obviously none of that really matters. At the end of the day, we simply need to develop and graduate top guys. I'm not nece...
