not all... but a bunch. when people pop up on the suggestions i add them if i have any idea who they are. i don't even know why but occasionally something interesting or fun comes of it.

or a lot of times another cubs twitter person will like/retweet and it'll pop in my feed as well.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Is anybody else pretty concerned with our 2018 bullpen?

FO has their work cut out for them this winter. If they don't bring Wade back, it could be ugly.

Nah not really, I think there’s a good chance Wade is back but even if not Carl, Strop, Wilson, Monty (if not starting), Rondon and Maples is a solid foundation to add 2-3 pieces to. Also we have really smart guys putting things together.

You'll get higher quality scrap heap pickups like Brandon Morrow off a ~league min salary year and Oh off a down year and like it.

So I stumbled on the Pearl Jam Wrigley Field concert film playing on Fox Sports 1 right now, there's some really cool Cubs stuff from what I've seen so far, and Theo got an nice section.

How awful is the after the fact fake radio calls of the NLCS? I’ve heard “the final out” already and it’s an abortion. How do they not get permission to use Buck or at least the Pat calls?

Edit: they used Pat’s call for clinching the pennant.

Joe Buck's World Series winning call still gives me goosebumps

and after 1 year as a Cardinal, Dex's leadoff homer and reaction still brings a smile to my face.

I just noticed Kris Bryant's K rate fell below 20% this year. It's a'comin, hopefully starting with this NLCS against those hacks in LA.

Martin is gonna be non-tendered so fast that they'll mail his stuff to him instead of letting him clean out his locker.
