All wins are good wins.

They still aren’t a great team, but the middle and bottom of the west is awful

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Up 3-1 in Detroit. A win temporarily puts them in a playoff spot, although I haven't checked out who else is playing in the Western Conference and it's a giant pile-up right around them. They'll leapfrog four teams. I'm shamelessly watching whole games instead of just highlights now that they're mak...

Re: TV thread

https://youtu.be/qAdTZcGeEQg I like this one better. I feel like it’s a show where it’s best moments are brilliant, but you have to go through a lot of bad potty humor and dross to get through it.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It’s absolutely true that a lot of popular perception of autism is ableist stereotyping. But in this case, I don’t see it as the “emotionless automoton” stereotype but more literal-mindedness.

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

Actual baseball games are miserably boring. The only fun part is team-running, which we decided to pass on entirely this offseason.

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

It feels like this board turned from "who cares about prospects" to 'WE HAVE NO PROSPECTS" real fast. We lost the division to the Brewers, our preseason projections range from “last” to “slightly favored against any one team but well behind the field in the division”, and we are maxe...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

In my mind, the Cubs aren't allowed another tanking/mid-market payroll cycle. They should be constantly developing talent for the big league team and spending money in free-agency. Didn't Theo once talk about "dual fronts" or something? That was all a lie. They’ve developed squat-all outs...

Oh horsefeathers off Tom. Arbitrarily hard-capping the payroll in the absolute middle of the competitive window for the team's core is ridiculous.
