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

Imagine the person who fires up the twitter machine to announce (unprovoked) his disapproval of a home run celebration at 1 AM on Sunday morning.

the fact that there aren't more players like Javy is everything that's wrong in sports nowadays

So, the first tiebreaker for the WBC is RA/9 in the games between tied teams. That means that if the DR loses this game to Colombia(they're up 3-2 Top 7), then in all likelihood they're out as long as the US beats Canada.

EDIT: This apparently isn't right, the tiebreaker only determines the winner of the pool(Colombia in this case), and then the other 2 teams play a tiebreaker game. Colombia tied the game in the 7th, it's tied headed to the 9th.

Chesny Young can horsefeathering hit. Mark Zagunis can too. Victor Caratini can hit. horsefeathering John Andreoli is p!aying his ass off in the WBC.

Ian Happ can really horsefeathering hit. Eloy can horsefeathers it, he's probably the next Stanton. Maybe even Manny lol.

We have the best lineup in baseball. We just won the World Series.

Theo is a [expletive] living, walking, breathing, cheat code.


As Cub fans, we fart in your general direction, you other MLB peasants.

I'd guess 450. It hit 20+ feet high at 410

And Jeimer scored on it who got on base by walking, there's probably an argument to be made we still have the best collection of hitters in the minors of any team in the majors. LOL

I'm only half listening at work, but I think at least a couple of those hits given up by Anderson were infield hits.
