Re: The Politics Thread

Pompeo apparently received an $5,800 bottle of Suntory Single Malt from Japan during a state visit and likely drank it all. He says he doesn't know what happened to the bottle and doesn't remember getting it. https://whiskeyraiders.com/article/state-department-reportedly-investigating-a-missing-5800...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

One of my staff who was vaxxed came down with COVID. She was working with a child (no symptoms) whose grandmother was in the hospital with COVID. The parents, anti-vaxers never told us he was exposed and only told us when we called all the parents of the children she worked with. I hate this horsefe...

Money talks, but I guess they won't be getting any "I just want to be in a great atmosphere" discounts in FA negotiations.

Re: 2021 Trade Deadline Targets, Rumors, and Rampant Speculation

I haven't spent a dime on the Cubs since 2018, but ultimately that's just a personal choice and not some kind of requirement or something I expect out of other people like this other dude is so obviously disingenuously demanding of other people. Someone can be 100% critical of the Ricketts or the C...

Re: So...Now What?

I think Bryant's the only one that might get there. I don't think he'll get Arenado's contract, but I could see him get close to 30 mil a year. Maybe it ends up something like 7/200 or so, with the last year as an option. I doubt Baez gets there. If Rizzo gets anywhere near the 5/70 or 5/80 (I don'...

Burl Carraway with only one walk in his last four outings, covering 5 innings. 8 strikeouts over those outings. It is not particularly impressive, but with his stuff we all knew that when his command got up to "adequate" he was gonna start moving fast. This might be a sign that's happenin...

Re: 2021 Trade Deadline Targets, Rumors, and Rampant Speculation

Who said the Ricketts are doing anything illegal? The Ricketts are immoral or perhaps amoral (like wolves). Tim's 30,000 feet assessment glosses over a lot of bad. For a little less than half of the time they've owned the Cubs including this year when they traded Darvish, they've actively tried to n...
