Re: The Cardinals

Unless that reason he was secretly almost 40 the entire time and it doesn't matter that he's 37 and broken now, then who gives a horsefeathers. How do you know he's still hurt? Are all our hurt guys going to be broken when they come back of the IL too, or is this just a SSS Cardinals thing? Haahaha...

Is it just me or does Addi drive others nuts too. I want it to be Addy if it's shortened. Ideally he's rocketed into the sun so we never have to post his name but in the meantime... Regardless of the person I cannot stand either variation of the shortened name. "Javi" is the only one of t...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

The hilarious multi-car pileup of someone simultaneously flogging the meatballiest of meatball takes (that bad players suddenly becoming good when moved to a contending team is any kind of a thing) while hyper-obsessing over the drilldown stats of the tiniest of sample sizes is just a deliciously m...

Re: Cubs go Dutch with Giants, acquire Holland

We feel confident Maddon will use him appropriately? I feel like if anything, he would use a non-LOOGY as a LOOGY, rather than use a LOOGY in a role that LOOGY can't handle. He settles into the obvious, this lefty should be able to get out a lefty because he's a lefty mindset, and in this case, it ...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Big changes are coming in the off season. Mini rebuild here we come starting with not re-upping Maddon and going a cheaper route. No way are they signing Sgt. Girardi. If their not gone by the deadline in a week - Schwarber, Russell, Al Mora & Happ flipped for young pitching & position play...

They better get it together or we might have to flip to what prospects we want from other teams and sell the few guys in our BP who get outs. It's not the least appetizing idea ever.

So Marisnick destroys Lucroy, giving him a concussion and a broken nose and he gets a two game suspension. Last night, an Angels relief pitcher plunked Marisnick intentionally in the upper back and gets a three game suspension. I know it’s a pitcher so he’s not going to pitch every game. I’m fully ...

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

If they add the rule about pitchers needing to step off to pickoff runners, all those runners are gonna have an extra half-step on their leads to make up for geared up catchers. Net neutral on the running game, the strike zone is more accurate, and we give the LHP balk pickoff moves the fiery death...

I'd guarantee Maddon hates red assed Hurdle. One enjoys his glass of wine, the other is busy shotgunning Milwaukees Best This is hate speech. I am an avid wine drinker and also an imbiber of mass quantities of cheap beer. #LoveIsLove Seriously, you can do both. Why do you hate fun? But Hurdle is a ...

He has benefitted greatly from the pill enhanced ball (PEB). So many warning track fly balls the last couple of years. Going out this year!
