Re: Who Are Your Favorite Deep Sleepers?

As for bottom of the barrel prospects I could not care less. The time for caring about the desperation rankings passed long ago. This. I, for one, do not miss the days of desperate hopes of guys like Eric Jokisch, Wes Darvill, Jae Hoon Ha, and Robert Whitenack could blossom into serviceable-ish big...

Not sure how a 12 year old can be that big a fan of such a vanilla program. Shoot, I WENT to Northwestern and I care less than that kid does Well, his dad is the Northwestern AD so not shocking he cares more than you.

I find it hard to believe Jim Leyland was ever a good manager. Nice Daniel Murphy, Paul Goldschmidt and Giancarlo Stanton on the bench.

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #27)

I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but there are absolutely not 26 better moments than Montero's grand slam. Easy Top 5. Not wanting to speak for Bukie but it seems like he's valuing any big play from a series deeper in the playoffs more than those from previous series. (But I have to ...

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

Good, horsefeathers pitchers. Especially when it comes to drafting them in early rounds. As long as he's the top prospect remaining on the board with no major injury red flags, I have no problem with drafting pitchers once you're this low in the draft. While the risk in pitchers is still there, the...

Re: Bears offseason

There's always several interesting players that get cut after the draft. Pace is sitting pretty. I think he has the flexibility to get practically anyone and right now he can just bide his time. All told I think he got really good value so far in FA and I'm stoked for the draft. Hooker would have a...

Re: 2017 NCAA Mock Tourney Selection

Man, Arizona has a perfect path to the Final 4 out West. Can't wait to see how Sean Miller blows this one.

Alford is top out at the Sweet 16 even with Lonzo and Leaf. And then he'll bounce for Indiana.
