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

The problem with the Cubs last year and the first month of this season are NOT as Schwarber, Almora, Happ, Contreras, Heyward, Darvish, Quintana, Edwards, Morrow or anyone else not named Bryzzo. Those guys are the fuel of the offense that runs everything else and has a huge impact on the other playe...

Re: Caratini to IL; Taylor Davis up

Not certain how it works in baseball as opposed to football. But without making a trade, where can the Cubs get a catcher from other than their own minor league system? Independent leagues? Do players/veterans with a certain amount of service time have the option to sign with another team’s 40 man r...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Can’t really blame a young twenty-something year old, many from impoverished backgrounds/countries, for taking the sure thing eight and nine figure contracts. Lots of baseball players (and athletes in general) flame out and or get injured.

Re: When the serial killer gets it...

I always felt serial killers get a bad rap. I mean, they’re always getting lumped together when, in fact, some of them actually have a soft, genuine side if someone took the time to really get to know one.
