It doesn't really take a ton of mental gymnastics to believe he truthfully was the top priority, in some sense.

He was a pitcher from Atlanta. He had to be good.


Which reminds me, I really thought Micah Bowie would be useful.

Didn't Ruben quevedo come from them

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Yeah, we're not getting lucky again (no lottery miracle). If I recall correctly we had a 1.7% chance of getting the #1 pick that year, and I still can't believe it actually happened. That was incredible to witness. I think K. Hinrich was our starting PG lol. A lot of people forget this, but this Bu...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Yu's interpreter just said that Yu's agent was talking up the Cubs going back to last year's trade deadline, so, entirely unsurprisingly, suggests that we were probably involved in trade talks on him last summer.

Now I’m looking at the 2004 team and wondering why they didn’t just get a SS and a real closer, because the current Cubs have taught me that you should just have zero holes on the roster. they did get a shortstop you weirdo that's only the single best and most memorable thing about 2004 Eventually....

Darvish had tweeted a pic of his jersey in his locker and then immediately took it down for some reason.
