Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

So, are we playing with 2 outfielders this season? Why not? We did when Schwarber was in left. Just kidding. I shouldn’t have done that. You’re in enough pain given your username. Eh, it’s like my fifth name. At this point I should just revert back to Aramis. Sad to see Schwarbs go though. Same. So...

Re: Len Kasper taking White Sox radio job

I'm still in shock. losing len hurt me more than any chicago athlete leaving ever has. i guess we all just assumed that he would be here for a very long time. when was the last time the Cubs lost or any other Chicago team lost a real stud in their prime? I was really bothered when the Cubs lost Mad...

Re: Len Kasper taking White Sox radio job

I started to make a tongue-in-cheek comment that perhaps the score informed Kasper that the radio pbp job was promised to Zach zaidman when Hughes hangs em up. Couldn’t remember his name exactly. Learned that some pretty gory stuff has happened to people named Zach Zabin and Zach Sabin.

Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

If the team signing a qualified FA paid the luxury tax in the preceding season, it will lose its second AND fifth-highest picks in the draft (regardless of round), as well as $1M of its international bonus pool in the upcoming period. Ouch. If the team signing a qualified FA did not pay the luxury ...

Re: Theo stepping down

Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

The exception is if there's a mandate to cut additional payroll. The ~$25M that trading KB and Willson would save is enough have an adequate offseason in this market. But if PTR says you need to cut like 10+ before you can begin reinvesting anything, then salvaging this offseason quickly becomes un...

Kimbrel's first scoreless appearance was on 8/14. If you look at the numbers for 8/14 to the present: 105 IP, 82 H, 13...

Re: 2020 Schedule Released

At the rate people are getting infected lately, maybe we'll hit that fabled mid-20s percent rate and it'll start burning out by then. Pathetically, that might be our best hope. Our bodies only remain immune to the three coronaviruses that cause common cold (some 30% of common colds, I think) for 18...

Re: Cubs Over/Under

Michael Cerami makes a solid point on Cubs talk podcast (Jeff Nelson filling in for Kaplan). He says the Cubs will either win less than 75 or more than 95. If they're in the middle of the pack they will be sellers to get under the tax cap and position them to spend 2021. We all know the impact of th...
