Man. This thread is great. It might get to the point where we go back to this thread in the future like Da Bum threads.

Fine lol. I'm younger than Khalil Greene by a good amount. Man, I guess I should learn to never criticize a "clever" title ever again.

Is anyone arguing that it is a clever title? Or a good joke? I think you are missing the point! Which is the point!

No, I was just saying I'm sick of these threads and someone said it's a joke. I knew it was a (bad) joke, but I wrote "There was a joke. I guess I missed it" and then it took off from there lol.

Oh, I know everyone knows it's not clever or funny. I was just saying I hate these stupid titles is how it started.

I feel kind of bad that I don't care about Jorge Soler, either.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

It's odd that more people give a horsefeathers about likely bust Jorge Soler theoretically getting caught for PEDs than the sneaky thread that made it sound like Bryant destroyed his leg.

maybe everyone has just come around to your evaluations of their respective attractiveness. soler is a bust, but a PED suspension is too cruel a fate for such a sexy man.

Also: "clickbait" is one of those terms parroted so often at this point that most of the time it's incorrectly. This, for example, is not "clickbait." The only people clicking on the thread are people already at the board. "Clickbait" is something designed to snag visitors who see a link/headline/etc. in a search engine or a feed or something along those lines. Do a Google search for "Jorge suspended 80 games for PED's" and tell me when you find NSBB.

Spoiler: even adding things like "NSBB" or "northside" to the title doesn't bring up this thread.

I stand by that thread, unlike Bryant, who can't stand on account of the knee surgery.


Also this is a good thread title.

Plus Kris Bryant is a real life Disney prince looking weirdo.

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