    Better off just referring to "the holidays."

    Todd Frazier Available

    For some reason I keep picturing him as an Indian, but I have no idea if they even match up in trade.

    Star Wars movies

    I was 12 when Star Wars came out; right in the target audience's wheel-house. I loved it; first movie I ever saw twice at the show. I remember all the hype for "Empire," reading all I could about it in advance, and still being shocked at the big reveal. I was disappointed with "Jedi" and most all of the others since (although I kind of liked "Sith"). Although I got excited about but then was let down by trilogy 2, I am still optimistic and looking forward to the new one. I will try to see it early, but have not been moved to buy tickets yet and will certainly not camp out or anything like that..

    Sox Sign Dioner Navarro

    I recall Navarro being a future HOF'er around the same time Edwin Jackson was, many moons ago.

    Illinois fires AD Mike Thomas

    Good Riddance. The report must be bad. Edit: Or not so bad (I see that the statement says the firing is "without cause").

    **2015 World Series - Mets vs Royals**

    QUOTE (flavum @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 11:29 AM) If Uribe plays and the Mets win, he'll be number 9 to play and win the Series for three different teams. The last three were Dave Stewart, Jack Morris, and Lonnie Smith. A couple 59 Dodgers were before that (Roger Craig, Clem Labine), and the others were in the 20's....Wally Schang and Bullet Joe Bush were teammates in 1913, 1918, and 1923. Ironic that his screw up on the basepaths in G7 of '91 is probably what kept him from winning 4 with 4 different teams.

    Cubs-Mets (Better Team) NLCS

    QUOTE (scs787 @ Oct 22, 2015 -> 04:31 PM) Thanks fellas! He responded with a "That's just the last 30 days" I hit him back with a "Well, don't Sox fans catch heat for talking about the past?". Nice.

    What is the report? Did the fight come before or after he was cut?

    Cubs-Mets (Better Team) NLCS

    QUOTE (bmags @ Oct 20, 2015 -> 02:33 PM) Surprised Bryant stays 3rd Nah. He shouldn't be, but Maddon isn't going to do anything that could be perceived by his young troops as panicky.

    I was 12 when Star Wars came out, and I can remember sitting in the dark hearing the "I am your Father" line from The Empire Strikes Back as if it were yesterday.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Oct 20, 2015 -> 08:35 AM) Bill Murray was on Jimmy Kimmel and apparently said if the Cubs were to win the WS, Cubs fans could become unbearable. If a Cubs fan says that........... "Become?"

    Cubs-Mets (Better Team) NLCS

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Oct 15, 2015 -> 12:39 PM) Is anyone else as sick of Eddie Vedder as I am? I am. I feel like he's taking much deserved publicity away from Jim Belushi.

    Cubs-Mets (Better Team) NLCS

    I keep telling myself over and over, "Good pitching beats good hitting," especially in October. Overall, both the Mets and LA have better, deeper rotations, so there's that.

    Cubs-Cards NLDS

    QUOTE (fathom @ Oct 13, 2015 -> 10:19 AM) I've read a few places lately they'll go after Price and Lackey for their rotation. I think Price reuniting with Maddon is nearly a given.
