Re: Funniest heckles you have heard at baseball games

I sat in the bleachers back when Neon Deion was playing OF with the Reds and soon after being "born again". One guy next to me starts calling out to him the first 3 innings, mostly "Papa, why don't you ever call me?" type stuff. After booting a lazy fly all, Deion turns around to...

I do think he has some ulterior motive that is not simply trying to be POTUS. Like maybe he had some scores to settle with Republicans.

Re: David Ross is awesome and deserves his own thread

A mascot better than Herrera, a good defensive backup catcher with some pop, and all the pitchers love him behind the plate? Sure beats Paul Bako.

There are lots of dumb touristy things to avoid (taking a kid down Bourbon Street at night?!? Really?) and good stuff to do. WHYWHYWHYWHYWHY? why do people do this?

Re: Baez impresses Baez

The walkoff is obviously the play of the game, but him throwing out Zimmerman on that soft grounder with the bases loaded was right behind it. He is such a valuable player right now, we wouldn't be where we are with Kawasaki up here, thats for sure. There were several times I was wishing he was man...

Re: 2016 Trade Deadline

Why do the Cubs need another starter? Artieta/Lester/Lackey will definitely be starting postseason games, and if they do need a 4th guy and Hammel looks shaky again after July, I trust Hendricks or even a bullpen game headed by Warren just fine. A lefty out of the pen might be all this team needs.

Re: Tommy LaStella: Small, white, AND good at baseball?

Maybe the real curse to break was getting an annoying, gritty, tryhard white player to succeed like the Cardinals churn out, and that was the final piece to the puzzle. All we needed was to get an Eckstein, a David Freese, a Skip Schumacher, a Nick Punto, an Aaron Miles (but not when he was on our ...

They are now at #2 in the 5 stages of grief.
1. Denial check

3. Bargaining "Maybe That next new batch of prospects will be here soon."
4. Depression "Jesus, the Cubs are 15 games up."
5. Acceptance "We suck."

I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

His defense has been awesome, but he's completely lost at the plate. Reminds me of Castro pressing last year and constantly rolling over easy grounders to the infield. Also feels like he's striking out a ton without the power to offset it I was seriously wondering if someone was going to start a th...

Re: The Cardinals

Every time I watch the Cardinals, they seem extremely unimpressive. Their defense looks really, really bad. I know they've had some good games and they were (are?) leading the league in runs scored. Maybe I'm bad luck for them and I should watch all of their games. It's not just you. They kick the ...
