The Ryan Dempster talk show style sessions really are fun live (at least when I went in 2016). Surrounded by people having a good time, seeing the Cubs have a good time.

Since then they’ve seemed less so. Maybe because I’m not there live, maybe because the schtick wears thin, or maybe because you guys make me awful and ruin everything.

I think it's probably just the fact that Ryan Dempster is quite bad in general.

When the Cubs get their own channel and need content to fill slots, they should make Friday Nights with Ryan Dempster a recurring show.

I don't think they have an exact time yet to announce the Harper signing. Could be Friday night or early Saturday. Machado signing announcement will be Saturday around dinner, I'd imagine.

I'm flying into O'hare tomorrow morning and staying at the W - Lakeshore. I was planning on just getting an uber from the airport but is there a better/easier/cheaper way? I don't care if it's a little more expensive for an uber if it's way more convenient, though.

Define morning, if you’re going to hit rush hour, I’d recommend taking a couple trains instead

Take the Uber, shouldn’t be a surge at that point and you’ll get door to door rather than having to take a walk after switching trains or riding the bus (don’t take the bus)

Apparently the Ricketts family quietly cancelled their panel that they do every year.

They will ask real questions but will be accepting of fluff answers

Like the normal Chicago press corps hoping for another opportunity for an interview. Cowards.
