Has to be a good sign that the Hall used this picture in announcing his election

Harold Baines? Solid player but I had no idea he was even a borderline case?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Based on the sweaty, kinda desperate attempts here to claim otherwise, it's weird how the White Sox system keeps getting rated so highly, I guess. NSBB sees through the smoke and mirrors; all of the farm systems are actually reversed! The Cubs' is actually top 5 instead of bottom 5! I’m reminded of...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

That's true, but hearing and seeing Bryce Harper and Eloy Jimenez all over the daily media would be frustrating, especially if the Cubs struggle. Agreed. The Sox farm system is loaded . If Eloy becomes the stud he's projected to become, it'll be painful. I doubt Bryce signs with them though - the l...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Dan Plesac was on the score this morning and he seemed pretty convinced that that the Cubs were going to make a big push for Harper and when asked to predict his destination he said Cubs. Not based on anything but good to see there are some in the media that believe in us

Re: Week 14: LA Rams at Bears Sunday Night on NBC

Why is that supposed to be impressive? (unless you were just setting up Wade Phillips comments today). Half the guys he just named and said they've been doing it for a long time. Not exactly a scouting report.

meanwhile, the mainstream reporters are taking direct quotes from Theo: https://twitter.com/PJ_Mooney/status/1070796370544615424 Obviously doesnt mean they are out on Harper.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Every Cub fan goes right to Darvish as a big mistake, but at least he'd been pretty healthy post-TJS. Signing walking medical bill Morrow is looking dumber by the day. I mean it was a gamble, but one that allowed them to get a pitcher with elite closer upside at an affordable rate. And he did just ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Guess we discuss the Morrow news here since the other thread was rightly locked

I'm glad that this was discovered now so we can plan accordingly. At this point we should just treat anything we get from Morrow at least in the 1st half of the season as a bonus as we build our 2019 pen.

Re: Week 14: LA Rams at Bears Sunday Night on NBC

Just win the division Yes that's certainly the goal and the number 1 focus. But since 4 of the last 5 competitive Bears teams had epic collapses to miss the playoffs, I'd feel more comfortable knowing that we clinched our spot in the dance and the Wild Card will likely be clinched sooner. 2008 - Ju...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

2 years in a row the cardinals have seemingly fleeced someone in a trade. Bet Theo would love a redo on the Q/Eloy trade. Yikes. I'm never going to complain about the Chapman trade because we won the title, but he paid like 130 cents on the dollar for him too. I feel like in season trades can often...

Re: Week 14: LA Rams at Bears Sunday Night on NBC

How have the Redskins clinched a H2H against the Bears? based on the remaining schedule, it looks like WAS has 2 remaining AFC games, while the Bears have completed their AFC schedule. Bears are 2-2 against AFC while WAS is 0-2. So, their 6 wins are all against NFC teams, and Bears also have 6 NFC ...
