Re: Addison Russell

An athlete not knowing exactly how to respond in a situation that involves someone he knows well in a culture where throwing teammates under the bus is usually not looked highly upon is not someone I’m going to criticize too strongly.

Re: College Football - Week 1 (Sept. 1)

Excited for the start of the Jimbo Fisher era at A&M tonight even if it is against some cupcake no one's ever heard of. You aren't familiar with Northwestern State? Different sport but I'm sure Iowa fans are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ktjk9HsnMA You are terrible for that

I would be surprised if Eloy becomes 70% of Harper.

me too. it's probably going to be at least 170%


If we sign Harper....well, probably

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

I know some of you think I’m crazy, but I love the rest of the division being so competitive. I feel like it gives the Cubs legitimacy and makes them play meaningful games that prepare them for the post season. Didn’t we win the World Series in the year where the division was at its least competiti...

I remember Jose Hernandez being good-to-about-average for most of his Cubs stay? Am I wrong? (I just looked it up. I was rightish. He somehow had a 4.5 WAR season for the Brewers!)


He was an all star in Milwaukee? Must have been an “every team needs a representative” pick
