Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

I see this as a sign that the universe is righting itself. The 2016 Cubs messed up the timeline by winning and now things are coming back to homeostasis. Obviously, it sucks for us, but this is our natural predicament in life as Cub fans. horsefeathers owners, mediocre teams, Wrigley fun. Going to ...

Seems to be jumping on the trend I guess. Either way it means the FO believes in him as a long term option which is nice.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Hawks were indeed eliminated last night meaning that unless the Cubs make the playoffs (or Sox I guess), we could be looking at the 2nd straight calendar year with only 1 total playoff game played involving a Chicago team. And because I'm a nerd I went back and looked at how many games Chicago teams...

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

If its going to happen its going to be early enough in the season to believe that a managerial change can salvage the season. April is too early. I'm thinking late May. Lets go May 27th, the day after getting swept at home by the Reds to bring the Cubs record to 24-28.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Every Bears player will have a triple digit number this year, in celebration of their 100th anniversary. This does not sound like a one game thing, all 16 games. This is gonna be weird.

Re: Let the hate flow thread - our rosters have been totally mismanaged

I’m telling you Theo was replaced by a lookalike in July 2017. Since then: -Traded our last 2 legit prospects for Jose Quintana. Defensible trade but even before he pitched many said it was a lot to give up -Offseason of doom in 2017-2018. Cishek is solid but Morrow, Darvish and Chatwood are all dis...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

It's really laughable at how whiny they are for attention Laura and I, again, expressed our concern about the public perception on the deal. I expressed my thought that it is crucially important that we try to keep the press clear on what the new ownership of the Cubs will look like. My reasoning f...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

I realize they have a lot of combined business interests that create a need for this, but I find it funny that the family has weekly private family conference calls where they discuss issues like Tom getting all the media attention.

Good to see Michigan forgot how to shoot today. UMFan what happened? I had them in the FF, thought they were clearly the best team in the West, did not think they'd have much trouble advancing.

Apparently, in the Show 19 there are unlockable home run calls from local announcers, so you can have Pat Hughes call all the HRs you hit in the game.

Brewers in talks with Kimbrel



Did this rumor need it’s own thread? No

Have I been drinking and have a desire to inflame the masses? Yes

Remember when we mocked all those Brewers fans who said sterns was a genius and Theo spent all his capital already?
