  1. Sticky: I'm with you on this. I honestly wouldn't be...

    I'm with you on this.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we 0-3 versus Pirates and then 4-0 Cardinals. For some reason the Cubbies always play bad against the Pirates even if they have terrible...

    How can a post on a completely subjective subject matter be reported for trolling?

    I'm sorry if I don't drink the same kool-aid as the others around here but I thought the best discussions had...
  3. Why'd my post get deleted? Anyone who has...

    Why'd my post get deleted?

    Anyone who has Bryant over Rizzo is just wrong. And Castro is no longer a Top5 guy... anyone else on that list has potential to out do him.
  4. Poll: Yeah I'd take Zimmerman. I'm sure he'd want to...

    Yeah I'd take Zimmerman. I'm sure he'd want to resign with the Cubs like all the big trades that happen. It wouldn't be hard I'm sure.

    And Addison has already shown all he needs to. He's got a...
  5. Poll: Why is it stupid? I like Starlin but he has...

    Why is it stupid?

    I like Starlin but he has peaked. His contract is great but if you can trade him for a real pitcher like a Zimmerman or something I'd take it. I think the team would be better...
  6. Poll: What do you mean? Like everyone else I wasn't...

    What do you mean?

    Like everyone else I wasn't too high on his start with all the K's. But he's really starting to show confidence up there and with that he's hitting it better. His approach is...
  7. Poll: Well, color me changed on my Russell opinion. ...

    Well, color me changed on my Russell opinion. That kid has it. He really has it.

    That swing and sound of the bat... just wow. I can't wait until it's warm and the balls start flying out.
  8. Poll: Sorry I didn't have time to google it before and...

    Sorry I didn't have time to google it before and i'm bad with names.

    Mike Quade. He wasn't as bad as everyone said. Same with Sveum.

    All I was trying to say is that big ticket managers don't...
  9. Poll: Maddon is about as good as managing a staff as...

    Maddon is about as good as managing a staff as Dusty is. Same team fundamentals too.

    It's why I don't understand the big name manager signings. What did Dusty do... nothing, Lou Piniella......
  10. Poll: Lester got his big contract and turns to crap. ...

    Lester got his big contract and turns to crap. Welcome to the Cubs history. Just like Soriano and every other big time FA.
  11. Poll: Anyone worried we just signed Barry Zito? I mean...

    Anyone worried we just signed Barry Zito? I mean different situation but a great lefty who then ... you know.. sputtered.

    I just can't believe that he can't throw a ball to first base. That...
  12. Poll: Wow, Russell is from Florida? I really had no...

    Wow, Russell is from Florida? I really had no idea...

    I'm sorry about that. I must have had him confused with another player.

    Kid still has a lot of pressure on his shoulders ... youngest in...
  13. Poll: I'm not racist or prejudice... but I am skeptical...

    I'm not racist or prejudice... but I am skeptical of the news. I'm glad Starlin was cleared of all charges and there haven't been any stories since.

    I just think that foreign players, especially...
  14. Poll: I don't think anyone ever underestimated DLee or...

    I don't think anyone ever underestimated DLee or hated on him.

    He's one of my all time favorites and not just because of that 1 good season but because he was a class act. We need more people...

    I hope Bryant doesn't file a real grievance. ...

    I hope Bryant doesn't file a real grievance. It'd kill his fan appeal and bring the whole team down.

    He should be happy to have finally made the big leagues.

    I can't tell if the article is...
  16. Poll: Hm. I didn't see these stats before. I stand...

    Hm. I didn't see these stats before. I stand corrected.

    I don't go quite as deep as you guys here and just work from what I see in the field and from my memory... which I guess can be flawed.
    ...
  17. Poll: Let's go Cubbies. I hope Bryant can get a big...

    Let's go Cubbies.

    I hope Bryant can get a big hit finally in this series. Time for a HR I think.

    He's impressed me so far but part of me worries if he'll end up being like Aramis Ramirez......

    Good idea Starlin... about time. Plus less distraction for him.

    Just a question though, how hard is it to bring your family like this into the USA? Does he get special treatment as a pro ball...

    I don't know about this trade.

    Fowler costs a lot and I don't see him doing anything special.

    Yeah our OF sucks but I'm not sure adding Fowler to CF would be any better than if we just dumped...
  20. Eh, these articles all start off well and good...

    Eh, these articles all start off well and good until you read... "While Starlin Castro has been cleared of direct involvement, reports indicate his brother and his bodyguards were involved in the...

    Jesus Montero, right? Is there more than one? I'm gonna be honest I don't keep up too much with C from other teams.

    Or was this some kinda joke I missed? C'mon I can't be the only one with a soft...

    yes but past performance doesn't guarantee future success. baseball is a changing game and i don't know if theo and co. are still on the forefront / vanguard of things. they certainly aren't doing...
  23. Poll: I'm fine with a No Trade clause for a player like...

    I'm fine with a No Trade clause for a player like Lester. You know he's a thoroughbred.

    Plus, a lot of times a star player will not mind being traded if your team starts tanking. So if in a few...

    Huh? He was an amazing cub for his first few years here. I wonder how well he could've done has the Zambrano stuff not gone down and he could've stayed with the team.

    He was a huge upgrade...

    But it wasn't even really known at the time. These things pan out over time... there's only so much you can know and project so I stand by my assessment - group them in categories and go with the...
