Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Yes jeez I'm well aware of all that. Votto is clearly better. Sometimes I forget how careful I have to be with my words with you jamokes. Bruh. Come on. You, like the rest of us, jump on people all the time to correct for being just a little off with their baseball flimflammery. Along those lines, ...

Re: New cubs seats

But now I really want to find out if my parents ran into this; they're in Chicago for the Home Opener games, and their season tickets are in seats that sure as hell aren't that close to the field, but are in a section where everything was replaced by new seats. This is a new thing with the reconfig...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Someone in the game thread called it correctly, I think: KB is becoming a RH Joey Votto. When he was a prospect, I just accepted that we had a flawed masher on our hands; a guy who'd hit 35-40 dongs & K 150+ times a year. It's hard to fathom how good this guy is, to improve so much while in the...

Re: RE: Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

They (pace) took him #4 pick overall. How is his potential weird?? just because he had potential in 2015 doesn't mean he has much of it left now even when he's been healthy he has looked entirely unimpressive on the field...and i don't just mean numbers. he doesn't flash anything. He's played 5 gam...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Clarify: White may very well be lost money. Meredith maybe not. Why is Pace betting this way? White is lost money either way, but he is additional lost cap too by doing anything other than keeping him on the roster for now. Basically he's around by default until he gets outplayed by 53 other guys. ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

At what point will Kris be making enough money a year to stop pimping various products in every picture? Everybody has endorsements, but you rarely ever see him wearing actual Cubs gear. What? That answer should be "never." Yeah make whatever you can I guess. It is mildly irritating when ...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

The national media was gushing over the Cubs farm system. They all were saying that they were going to be a powerhouse, just a matter of when. This isn't yet the case with the Bears. there was tons and tons of doubt and by no means was the cubs being a powerhouse characterized as a certain thing as...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

I've liked a lot of Paces individual moves these three years, but he hasn't proven anything without wins, IMO. i'm looking at the coaching staff, the roster, and how things are set moving forward and i am very optimistic. that's enough for me to be pleased right now. Right, I'm pleased. When I comm...

Baseball is a quantifiable sport where you can know you are good before you are good. Football is not. Believing in mitch isn't enough. Entirely fair, but I gotta say I'm pretty happy with everything Pace has done since right after the trade to the second pick (which I've softened on my stance agai...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

You're severely overstating the public's faith in Theo before 2015.

And if anything, I think the Bears are getting more credit and attention lately nationally than locally. Aside from jahns, the local media has been lukewarm at best.
