Re: Law's 2016 Farm System Rankings

aaron: Keith- How much of Gleyber Torres’ rating is tied to being a shortstop? As he probably won’t play there with the Cubs already with Russell, how would being at 2nd or 3rd affect his high slot? Klaw: If he’s truly a shortstop, then that’s how I’ll rate him. Club context does not apply. Otherwi...

Re: 2016 TV Schedule Out

i'm a little surprised they aren't on any non-exclusive espn games on weeknights (aside from the opner) but maybe espn just doesn't plan those out that far ahead.

no, it's because one time there a discussion, likely a facetious one, about sammy being a coach, which you referred to as sammy being a couch

Re: Law's 2016 Farm System Rankings

The issue I have with ranking us 4th is that you have to completely buy ceiling on guys far away ... and there are very few times where a farm system, as it currently looks, will have multiple guys hit close to their ceilings. It's not impossible, but it's tough sledding to bet that way. That said,...

I booed loudly at my TV when the stupid Kardashians showed up. How many more times are they going to shoehorn them in??? as annoying as it is (and that whole K-A-R-D-A-S-H-I-A-N scene made me cringe big time), probably as many times as they can since they are extremely popular and relevant. much mo...

Re: Fowler

I can't believe the White Sox aren't all over Fowler. They got .1fWAR out of RF last year and he'd give them an instant 2.5 to 3fWAR upgrade. For 3/30 that's that's an incredible deal. They're apparently hung up on the pick. I am pretty surprised by how they've approached all the FA OF. I think the...

Re: Law's 2016 Farm System Rankings

Kiley had become my top guy, with Law 2nd(1st again now)Callis going to MLB moved them ahead of BA for me(even with Mayo sucking). BA comes next, then BP, who just keeps losing guys. With KG and Parks, they were on Law's level easily. Sickels and the new FG guy suck. i guess i should give mlb a lit...

Re: Law's 2016 Farm System Rankings

The gap between different prospect rankers is amusing to me. i know it's convenient to say since law is extra high on us right now (and has been in the past...i think he had our system as elite a little before others did 2-3 years ago), but law is prob the one i hold in highest regard since he seem...

i was thinking there or maybe hotel lincoln, but i doubt there's any chance he gets near that rate for the saturday. maybe monday.

from what i looked up, congress hotel would get him near that rate for saturday, but, incidentally, someone was literally just robbed at gunpoint there.

Re: Music Thread 2.0

Speaking of hotels, I've only stayed in a hotel in Chicago once and it was in the loop and cost a fortune. I usually drive back up to Milwaukee but doubt that will happen after the concert. Can anyone recommend a hotel within a 10-15 minute cab /transit ride from Wrigley that won't get me murdered ...
