Re: 2018 All Star Game

Generally I don't get too caught up in who does or doesn't make the All-Star team, but I'm super excited that Javy and Willy will be there.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Kane makes the penalty, then I can only assume heads to the bench for a moustache and fake sunglasses so he can also take the next 4.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Geiger apparently left his cards at home. Colombia has probably deserved at least one straight red for a headbutt, if not several more yellows, including an assistant coach giving Sterling a shoulder shiver when heading off the pitch for halftime.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

There's enough people who are paid to write and talk about soccer that are talking up Juan Carlos Osorio to USMNT being a thing that I'm forced to consider it now. I think I like it? Maybe a lot? There are certainly worse options (aka the prior 2 hires), and the result today (and v Sweden) was a ne...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

July 1 first-half offense musings:

- Willson Contreras has been a slightly better Buster Posey this season.
- Anthony Rizzo has been the worst Cub regular hitter to this point. However, his batting line is still above average for all but 4 MLB teams (Cubs, Red Sox, Yankees, Astros).

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Did they get rid of the double jeopardy in the World Cup? I know they did in the EPL so as long as you're making a play on the ball, you can't get a red card and give up a PK. Because that should have been a red for denial of a goal scoring opp. Yes they got rid of triple jeopardy as long as it's a...

Fox hasn't cared from the outset, and the better team won both games today, so it'll be a better matchup as well.

Encouraging offensive stat: Every Cub with over 110 PA has an above-league-position-player-average wOBA (league average for non pitchers is .318). All 10 of Bryant, Baez, Schwarber, Zobrist, Almora, Contreras, Happ, Rizzo, Heyward and Russell are between .327 and .369. Update, yesterday's game shuf...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

So there's an interesting scenario in play in the Group G finale between Belgium/England. If Brazil wins their group and Germany finishes 2nd in theirs, the winner of group G would play a Brazil/Germany winner in the quarters, whereas the runner up of group G would play a potentially more desirable ...
