Re: Gio Soto back to the Cubs

Can he take the Geo's number to make my Soto jersey relevant again?

Re: Schwarber: Fully torn ACL and LCL. Out for year.

Corey Patterson tore his ACL in July 2003 and was ready for Spring Training in 2004. Bold prediction: Kyle heals faster than expected, makes the league his bitch for the last two weeks of September and carries us to a WS win. Four WS wins. 4 of them. Patterson injured his running forward, coming do...

Re: My Dog is Getting Old

My dog now has to be quarantined to the bathroom while we're out of the house because he's peeing and pooping everywhere. I just tore out all the first floor carpet and replaced it with wood, and he almost ruined that already. My incontinent 14 year old Lab was making messes all over our carpet dow...

Re: Schwarber carted off field

especially since schwarber was probably like our 5th best regular and, while the replacements aren't great (or him), he's not being replaced by like jason dubois or bobby scales or something either. I'm lower on him than most, but I think you could make a case for 8th. He is definitely behind Rizzo...

Re: Schwarber carted off field

So, in the event his knee is shredded and he's out for the year, at least we have options. Anyone think any of these combinations could eventually happen from options within (after a failed Victorino experiment, predictably)? A. LF Soler/McKinney, 3B Bryant B. LF Bryant, 3B Candelario C.

During the game last night, Len mentioned that Baez got drilled in the head by a pitch, which could slow his return to the big league club. Anyone know anything more about that?

Re: Blackhawks 15-16 season

Not that it matters much but that ending last night sucked. Bad break, tough rebound for Darling to control on the tying goal. No big deal, considering they were down Shaw, Hoss, Keith and Crow, it's cool. Notably the Blues didn't goon quite as much last night in the parts I was able to see. The on...

Re: New Wrigley Nomz (Food Porn)

So are you folks at least in agreement with me that top shelf tastes better and gives you less severe hangovers? Seems like the "quality of the buzz" issue is the only thing we are hung up on. This is how I tend to see it, though it's possible I'm completely operating on bias as far as th...

Alcohol is somehow not alcohol. You can get a different kind of buzz/drunk with certain alcohol.


While we're on this subject, cheap gin is the worst.


Cheap gin is good for one thing. It cleans glass amazingly.

Re: New Wrigley Nomz (Food Porn)

Yeah, I've never heard that the buzz is better because you went top shelf over cheap well options. It's the after effects that make me stick to the top shelf stuff if I'm going to have a bunch of drinks. I also stay away from on tap beers, as the hangover from those are usually worse for me than bot...

Re: Juice. Juice. JUICE.

He's up for parole next year. That will be interesting. The ruling for his Vegas crime always seemed to me like a make up call for the botched Nicole trial. Granted, he was guilty, but the length of time for the crime seemed like a make up call.

Re: Juice. Juice. JUICE.

I can't decide if one more episode about the civil trial would have been a good idea or not. On the one hand, the civil trial provided some level of closure for the victims families. On the other hand, it might take more than one episode to tell that part of the story. Seems extremely odd that a de...

So a trade for an impact player is still a possibility? Say someone like Jimmy Graham?
