I never disappeared as you keep claiming, but what is this trouble that you talk about? I see posters claiming we're a 95 win team without making any moves. We just need Harper to put the cherry on top of the cupcake.

I read most every post and I don't remember a single person saying that we're a 95 win team without making any moves. I came closest, I think, and I said 91-93 with the addition of a couple relievers.

But exaggerate as much as you like to make a point, I guess.

Someone’s getting fired if they miss Harper, right? Crane Kenney?

And it doesn't really mean anything especially considering he appears to be AZ based, but he is at least pretending to be in Vegas.

Unfortunately it appears the Cat has been outed



I cant believe I googled Barry Manilow Vegas to try and verify if something named CharlestheCat was lying about being in Vegas.

But, I did.. and Manilow had a return tour in Vegas through October and is back again in 2019.. so a Manilow advertisement is very lucky.

So CtheCat still good, and Harper to Cubs done deal is what this means.


Same here. Lol. Seems this cat has 9 lives.

Although, the shows in 2019 are not at the Paris. Although, that would be a good place to advertise them.

Someone help. I care way too much about this, even for a snowy Sunday afternoon.

I stayed at the Bellagio last week for a conference. It is across from that sign. They weren't running Manilow then. Also the people pictured are way under dressed for this time of year. It was low 50s at night last week. Granted the street performers and strippers hang out near there and don't wear much. At night the girls were wearing more on their legs and torso due to the weather.

If you assume the TV deal not being done/horsefeathers up is the reason for the cash crunch he should be since he’s probably the guy overseeing that.

You did disappear from the board crash until a little after the world series

Hard to say, everyone was wearing coats and hoodies at night. The conference had 55,000 people and gave out hoodies to everyone.

Manilow is back but not at Paris. He's at the Westgate.

It’s remarkable that nearly none of the major national outlets even mention the Cubs when it comes to Harper

He claimed to have sources earlier in the offseason and he got the leak/report we had no money. Wonder if he’s hearing different now.

Something needs to happen because we're already debating January crazy stuff like Vegas signage.

Meanwhile, Rosenthal notes that some rival agents and club executives think the market for Harper will be limited, given the bar Boras is believed to be setting. "It's Philly bidding against Philly," one agent said of the Harper sweepstakes.

Altman seems pretty credible, he usually isn’t rumor mongering. I’d say if he says something he at least has heard something and there’s a basis for whatever he says when it comes to something like this. Whether it’s ultimately right or wrong who knows, but him and most of the Cubs Insider guys (outside of Loxas who they just brought on) don’t seem to be in the fake rumors/baseless speculation game and trying to break things.

Just like Philly bidding against Philly for Corbin and they “wouldn’t be out bid to get him.”

That one dude ABTY or whatever it was threw a fit awhile back and now mostly rants and raves about the Bears on Twitter. There was another guy, Marlin, I think, who knew some stuff. I only ever lurked on there time to time. A few other guys here might know more.

Yeah, I continue to be surprised at how much run this cat is getting on here.

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.

If the content is just made up, which it is, then it's not really content.
