@NOLA


Wouldn't it be very hot wearing a black t shirt in New Orleans? Or anywhere else where it gets hot and humid for that matter. Unless of course you don't go outside much.

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Heard the Maddon comments on La Stella being willing to go to Iowa. Interesting. It may mean the Cubs will go with just 5 infielders to start the season. It's also possible Maddon is saying that now as a way to improve the team's leverage in a possible trade. with 5 ml starter quality infielders, t...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Maddon has loved Baez from day 1. I bet Baez is the emergency catcher because there's nothing he can't do defensively.

Re: Funniest heckles you have heard at baseball games

One of the pleasures of Camden Yards is that someone got the great idea to have a walkway that runs basically over the top of the bull pen. This means that people can yell down at the visiting starting pitcher before the game starts.

I'm pretty sure that was always the plan, he only played major league games because of the WBC, split squad games and for jersey sales.


Pros: he can buy his under age teammates beer

Cons: he'll probably give them his testimony instead.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Soembody asked him if this Puerto Rico team was the best team he'd ever played on. He basically sort of kind of said that it was. The studio guys were were all "Oh no he didn't" as if that was going to cause some sort of controversy.

Re: NHL Regular Season 16-17

The Blue Jackets have set franchise records for wins and points, and still have 14 games to go. I'll be disappointed if they don't get out of the first round this year, but they would have to catch the Capitals to guarantee a much easier match up (they'd play the Penguins if the season ended today)...

Andreoli is cannon fodder, it's Zagunis who takes up Szczur's mantle as a RH reserve OF Why put Zagunis on the 40 man before you have to? You have 4 quality outfielders on the major league team and a Javy Baez that can push 2 more there. The 5th outfielder, Iowa shuttle guy is supposed to be someon...

Re: Food Monstrosities

Apologies if I've asked this before. The kids at school talk about an underground sandwich that they create called a "McGangbang". Apparently, they order a double cheeseburger and a fried chicken breast sandwich, take the chicken breast and add it to the burger. Anyone ever heard of this?

Those lines seem that much more ironic since he's related to a pitcher.

Thanks, this is great. What about the Historic District as opposed to downtown? They're basically one in the same. Most hotel websites call it the Historic District. South of Calhoun is preferred, but there are a few hotels along Meeting St. just north of Calhoun that would be OK as well. I'll seco...
