Re: Winter Meetings Thread (?)

Lol, i love that the Sox won't trade with us. Maybe if we offer to call the waambulance for them, they'll loosen up a little.

Re: Politics & Current Events

people have spent a lot of time arguing about whether bannon, flynn and sessions are bigots, but probably the best standard you can use is whether people on horsefeathering stormfront are excited about their nominations. if so - probably a bigot. I hadnt even heard of that site before these posts. ...

Has it yet been brought to this thread's attention that somebody once wished that Carlos Zambrano would give Milton Bradley a black guy?

Also, I really hope that Trump really said that thing about fast food. Mind boggling how one might think that "knowing what they put it in" would be a benefit to eating fast food.

Good thing they punted that one season to save his arm still the right call we'll never know, but so far, that move has netted them zero playoff series wins I thought it was dumb to shut him down completely like they did, as opposed to moving him to the bullpen a month before the shutdown to limit ...

Strasburg to DL with "elbow soreness." I wonder if throwing 70+ pitches in 1+ innings his last outing had anything to do with it? I always worry about that when a pitcher gets to 36+ pitches in an inning. I worry about Hammel after his disaster inning yesterday. Wish we had a team policy ...

Re: Cubs add Chapman for Torres, et al. imb wishes we paid more

Lack of an extension really killed my excitement for this deal. Can't believe that two months of Chapman costs Torres, McKinney, Warren, and some dude I've never heard of. There's some extra value in that making this deal prevents the Cards, Nats, Giants, Dodgers, etc. from getting him. And I'm real...

No matter how good this year's roster ends up being going into the playoffs, there will be close to an 80% chance it doesn't win the World Series. I don't see how much more plainly it can be put. I don't think that is fact. "The cool thing about facts is that they remain true regardless of if ...

The only way Clinton has any chance of salvaging a vote from me, personally, is if she makes Warren her VP, since she campaigned with her a little bit.
