just kidding, mojo

I like Mojo, but he has been insufferable from his first day here.

You know, at times.

Re: The Ball is Insanely Juiced

Is the potential solution to the strikeouts/walks/home runs era to keep this juiced ball and then slowly build gigantic ballparks? I am open to that being a terrible idea for some reason I'm not thinking of, but my perception is that would create a lot more action both in the field and on the bases...

Re: The Ball is Insanely Juiced

Well, you could make Wrigley about 4-5 feet "bigger" by removing the basket. After that you're out of luck.

Re: Addison Russell

Russell has the second highest OPS behind Rizzo's .866 in losses at .844 and has a .798 OPS in 38 starts yet people think he was costing us games because they can't see past the off the field stuff. 1) This might be the most meaningless split I've ever seen 2) If you really want to use it...you're ...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

My disappointment would (so far this is all internet spec and I might be getting miffed for nothing) largely lie in handing the keys to the one of the worst receivers in the league whom hasn't shown much interest in improving his game. Are you talking about Willson Contreras? The converted infielde...

It kind of cracks me up that the one original cabinet member that managed to mostly keep his head down and out of controversy is doofus Rick Perry.

Mostly it just depresses and enrages me, though.

Re: Trade targets 2019

I think I'd be pretty happy with Tony Watson. He'd be a lot cheaper than Will Smith and would still be a really solid addition to the pen. He's got bad numbers against lefties in a small sample in 2019, but for his career he's plenty tough against them. Plus - he throws strikes, which is unusual for...

Sure saying it was a steal is probably overboard, but it was a good trade Jersey Saying it was a steal would have been overboard. Saying it was a "huge steal" earned the call out, I think. It was a nice trade that improved the second or third line. But it did not address the need for a to...

I've started to think that, outside of extreme cases, it's just genetics. I've known people who smoked a pack a day and drank hard liquor for 60 years and they still made it into their mid 80s while I've known others who were all about exercising and closely monitoring every meal and they drop dead...
