    What’s funny is there is some truth to this?  Part of being a Cubs fan was the desire to be there when they finally ended the drought?  Now that losing may not be so lovable and with a highly likable / competing Sox club (ignoring TLR), the sides could really shift in Chicago if the Ricketts aren’t careful.

    I absolutely think there is truth to this.  I'm not really making fun of that tweet as much as I'm like "damn you see what's happening over there?"

    If Bennetti goes I will be so happy.  The sooner he's out of here the better.

    Re: Kasper, I like him, but he's more the national type than the typical Chicago-style homer.  On the radio I think he might work very well.

    I like the guy who does the PBP for the Charlotte Knights games.  He would be an excellent replacement for Bennetti.  Also I liked the guy who did some of the Sox ST games last year.  I bet there are lots of good PBP guys in MiLB that can focus on the game of baseball properly.  Bennetti is such a dork.  And all his big calls suck.  I'm not going to rant about this but seriously, if he has any aspirations of increasing his national time, great, go do it, good riddance, GTFO of here already.

    This is garbage

    I agree. Personally, I find Loeffler pretty gross (wouldn’t vote for Warnock though) but would prefer Perdue to Ossoff, but I don’t live in Georgia. I figure some will split for whatever reason but not enough to make a difference. As goes one, so shall the other.

    How can you find either of these two preferable?  They both used insider knowledge to game the system and stock market and have profited off the deaths of thousands.  They should both be in jail

    The definition of the ad absurdum argument. 

    I told you guys that in my opinion there's 2 spots(DH, 1B) for 3 guys(Eloy, Abreu, Vaughn) and the I'm not sure that Vaughn is good enough defensively to play 1B. 

    This isn't a fact, this is an opinion. It's not a problem as long as they continue to attempt to hide Eloy in LF. Unfortunately, that jeopardizes both Eloy and Robert's health. 

    Vaughn is a hell of an offensive prospect and I'm not arguing that. What I'm arguing is whether or not he's completely blocked. 

    BTW I can see the Konerko comps for his ceiling if you're talking about Paulie's best years. 

    This is Parkman's opinion on roster construction. 

    Sports forums are to discuss this type of stuff, right? 

    Ok this is fine but then you comped him -offensively- to Casey Kotchman and used college stats to project that he will maybe hit 18-25 home runs.

    Can someone explain to me how the NFL lets that Broncos game go on.  Was it purely them looking at things saying Broncos aren't a playoff team and Saints are a lock so lets just move this along?  If so - it feels like a really slippery slope relative to all the other cancellations that have happened.  I mean if you are a contender for the #1 seed in the NFC you have to be pretty irate about this.  

    Honestly this was one of the dumbest fucking things they have done, and there is a long list of those things.  Putting that kid out there to get crushed with one day of preparation was just fucked up

    I don't follow this thread much, but how many of you here have been positive for COVID yet? I just got tested yesterday, and then about 2 hours after my test I lost my taste and smell. Super strange to get absolutely no enjoyment out of eating. 

    😐 no good man, I hope your symptoms stay mild and manageable

    Just wondered, am I allowed to post how they celebrated Thanksgiving on the Portland streets?

    No

     

    but go ahead and think about the comparison you think is so smart.  You call the protests in Portland unlawful and terrible and all kinds of things and you want the church to be able to do the same shit.  So if this Portland protest is a superspreader event the church should be able to do it to.  Some awesome pretzel logic

    I don't think you can make categorical statements like that.  This is chess....if they sign Bauer but keep Mazara that is not the team giving up...it's them allocating resources where they think they are more important.  Maybe they think Mazara's lefty bat, improved defense and hitting potential is too good of a fit and that his 150 at bats in a Covid year is not enough to decide he's a waste...maybe they think Adolfo is closer to being ready than any of us do...maybe they think they can wait and see on Mazara until the all star break, where your minor league talent has begun to bloom enough to be more attractive in a trade.  Maybe they are seeing reports that Covid will shut down fans for all of 2021 as well and money will be really tight for everyone.  We don't know but if they do bring him back it will be interesting.  

    Old enough to remember when he said he was done making statements like that.
