Re: Bradley picked 4th in MVC Preseason Poll

Meh. You don’t see any preseason conference championship banners hanging up in arenas, do ya? Just go out there and kick some folks in the teeth and win the whole fuoking thing.

Re: F*!#

The crap Koch Bar takes on this board makes me laugh. Me too...it really makes zero sense. People don't even bother to watch what he does away from the ball. And when pointed out to them, that just gets ignored, too. Its because of the “look”. He’s not really fluid in some of his motions so some of...

Re: F*!#

Sulking is over. It is what it is. Rotation isn’t hard now. 7 guys. Defend. Rebound. Play small but ‘big’. Veteran teams can find ways to overcome adversity and weather the storm. We have 3 all-League caliber guys who will be logging big minutes and know how to win. A new star needs to (and will) e...

I disagree that it would be worse if it was Dlo or Brown for instance.... those guys don’t need the seasoning nearly as much as Ari does. Either one of those guys would be back up to full speed once their conditioning caught up whereas Ari needs D1 game experience prior to Conference season..... Th...

As a Bears fan I feel the same way about McCarthy as I did about Mike Matheny as a Cubs fan. I can’t imagine how they continue wasting Rodgers prime with him as HC.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

As a Cardinal fan I would be tickled pink if the Cubs swapped Joe Maddon for Joe Girardi. As a Cubs fan, I would be equally as untickled pink. Maddon is a good manager. He just won a world series 2 years ago now. He has won 90+ games. Its ridiculous to even have the conversation of him not being th...

Don’t understand the Heyward move. With an extra deep bench, why not just go Schwarber there and then use him to double switch out next inning.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Win or lose tomorrow, this year has been a success. Winning 95 games when 2/5 of your starting rotation started 25 games with a 5 ERA between Chatwood/Darvish, an injury and down year from a former MVP in Bryant, and a bullpen that wasn't getting it done is a success. Now go out and sign Bryce Harpe...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Looks like the entire NL playoff race is heading towards a game 163.

The good thing for the eventual NL Central winner would be that they’d have an extra day off before playing a wild card winning team that would already have gone through 162-163-WC game at full steam.
