Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Even if he sucks now being angry at him isn’t something I can get behind. His monster dongs in 15 and the comeback from injury in 16 were enough to keep that from happening. Would love to see more schwarber greatness but if it’s over then fine

Re: Will the 2019 Cubs finish above .500?

Watching other teams improve while we stay stagnant isn’t putting us in a good position. That said a team that seemed to be iffy health wise and had some scheduling problems still tied for best NL record and if it means anything they seem more motivated. I could see a complete collapse or a very str...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

I don't understand the idea that Shifts suck fun out. I love that the defense has more tools at its disposal. Who doesn't love when a pitcher goes into the outfield? or something whacky like, two outfielders and five infielders? Make the game fun, and strategic damnit I’m not really anti shift or a...

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

It’s not good to have important games lasting until stupid times of the night on fall weekdays, well you can but I don’t see how it doesn’t hurt the games growth. It’s tough because changing baseballs rules is challenging even though the other major sports do it frequently. I don’t know if this is t...

Re: dongs are awesome, yay dongs!

Only other random ones I can think of that were cool were Alou/Sosa back to back to walk off the reds in 2004. Hollandsworth 9th inning homer in early April against the Braves I think, also in 2004 I believe. Baez against the White Sox to give in the lead in a 2016 game. Big Z in 2003 vs the Astros ...

Re: Addison Russell

I actively hated Hundley and Estes other than that I can’t really think of a player I passionately despised. Rusch and Marquis I kinda knew what they were and other common targets were on bad teams so they were just bad players on bad teams. I think I kinda disliked Julian Tavares but I have no idea...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Assume that GarPax won’t tank. Is this lineup with 1-2 bench reinforcements in FA a playoff team next year, Morant/FA/Arch LaVine/Valentine/Selden Porter/Hutchison Markkanen/FA Carter Jr/Lopez (supposedly bulls want him back) To throw some random names in for FAs let’s say Elfrid Payton at PG and M...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

I hope building a winning culture or whatever is a meaningful thing because these wins are obviously pointless. I don’t watch much living out or state but I did watch the game vs Boston and they were so fluid on offense it was fun. If that’s the type of ball they’re building towards I’m optimistic

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

from a fan perspective i dont think anyone is too concerned with who benefits from the DH the most on a team-level as there are very few truly impactful DHs like, ever. It just makes the games more watchable because i hate watching pitchers horsefeathering hit I’m always mixed on the nl dh because ...

Big XII does it


I know. And it feels odd. You already had a round robin tournament that should have decided the champion.

I know why they play a championship. It just looks less tidy to me without divisions
