Re: Addison Russell

I keep hoping he’s hurt like Zo was last year and just needs the offseason to get healthy.

You Derwood almost everything so there are no expectations other than for you to Derwood things.

He loses a few points because he's clearly hobbled in some way, but the bat toss was amazing and the cadillacing around the bases was a nice touch as well. That catcher needs a whoopin'.

Re: Bathroom Nightmares

You do something every day one way for years, or decades, and then you have to switch it up...that can be weird for a whole host of reasons. Like when I busted up my shoulder and was in a sling for a week, couldn't wipe with my left hand at all. Brutal. I've had 2 surgeries on my right shoulder. Ma...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

So to summarize, out of market fans would only be able to see the Cubs broadcasts via MLab Extra Innings....as of now? However out of market fans watch them now would almost certainly be the same way they'd see them on the Cubs network. This is really only materially different to the local market, ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Gov. Bruce Rauner has a vetoed bill that would have given public school teachers an annual minimum salary of $40,000 over the next five years. Rauner says he vetoed the bill Sunday because the minimum pay is an inefficient way to compensate teachers and is an unfunded mandate on school districts. T...

So was this an issue from the start of the year? Can we chalk up the early performances on this? Also, someone said he will be out until late next year. Is that accurate? Who knows on part one, seems plausible though he had a few okay starts and the stuff/velo was mostly good. Second part it’s too ...

Re: The Cardinals

His offensive profile is kinda Almoraish Yeah, but there is just something about Bader that the Cardinal fans like more than Almora. Does Bader like to drink and drive or beat his wife too? Funny you should ask. [tweet] https://twitter.com/bestfansstlouis/status/1030874109343948800?s=21 [/tweet]

I was watching the game against the Nats last night and the praise for anything any of their players do well is just so over the top gushing that it's gross. DeJong made a decent play in the hole and Bader made that jumping catch and it sounded like they had just made a World Series game 7 saving pl...

The Cardinals are not in any mix Criticize it and dismiss it all you want, but the great dark purge seems to have really lifted morale in that clubhouse.

I think the whole salsa thing is pretty horsefeathering stupid Oh come on, you'd love it if it was a Cub thing. On the other hand, yeah, he's a Texas guy and buddies with Arrieta so he's likely a bible thumping weirdo. Also, if you can't hit anywhere in the lineup but the 1 spot, you're not an MVP....
