Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

That sucks, YouTube tv is so much better than Hulu live tv. I'm talking about the unlimited DVR and the interface that is more cable like. The reason i was able to sell my wife on ditching cable/satellite For whatever it's worth, I'm finding that most of the shows I save to be DVR'd by YouTube TV a...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Republicans are really amping up their 'attack crazy Bernie before he takes away all your money' rhetoric post-Nevada. Please tell me how I should feel about Bernie's ability to get elected. Obviously I'm voting for him regardless, but I have my concerns about his electability. I absolutely think s...

Re: Politics & Current Events

If Bernie didn't run as an independent when he narrowly lost to an establishment candidate in 2016 with a wildcard demagogue as the other party's nominee, why would he do it now against a different establishment candidate with Trump being more of an electoral known than he was before? Because Bloom...

I think the best way forward is to just ban everyone we aren't sure is real. IMB was on CNN once so he's safe, minny has personally identifiable info out there somewhere so against all odds he's not a bit, and no one would ever pretend to be mojo on purpose. Everyone else is a clone and gets the axe...

Re: Kipnis to Cubs

I am predisposed to like Kipnis, which is good because I'm not sure how good a fit he is otherwise. He can't defend much, isn't enough of a LH bat to deserve any 1B or DH at bats over the alternatives, and even by 2B standards is a significant question mark. If there's a profile that might have a de...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Walker is a weird case. He was very highly regarded as a prospect, and was a slight disappointment in 'only' being an averageish starter who more often than not beat his FIP. Then he had TJS in 2018 and a shoulder injury during his 2019 recovery so he has 14 pro IP the last 2 years combined. He's on...

I make fun of everyone else here for believing Chatwood had trade value so I’ll do it for Sharma as well. The idea of FA Chatwood getting 1/13M is laughable I think that's fair, but part of the assumption here is that teams are making a deal out of more desperation than the average FA, as they have...

Re: Cubs Over/Under

86 wins feels about right. Yup. I think as of today between the Cubs, Brewers, Cardinals and Reds someone finishes in the 76-80 range, 2 finish in the 84-87 range and 1 gets to 90+. Whatever way you want to order the 4 I think has a fair argument. Stacking up wins vs the Pirates is going to be impo...

Re: The Cardinals

Yeah I unfortunately don't see too many places where the Cubs would blow that out of the water. The outfield in total lines up pretty closely, just give Schwarber the 2.4, Heyward the 1.3, and Happ (with Almora dragging him down) the 0.9. 13.8 from the infield should be mostly covered by Baez/Bryan...
