    So is no one falling on the sword for 2018?

    As the Cubs have shown over the years, the location of the stadium and how many fans fill it every year doesn't correlate at all to how good the team that plays inside it is.

    I'd call 4 consecutive years in the playoffs and one WS championship pretty successful. Also the Astros who went through a similar rebuild are in their 3rd playoff appearance in the last 4 years and have a shot at the WS again.

    2018 AL Central catch all thread

    I was just supplying additional information to the post. Also Cleveland played nearly 50% of their games against the ALC. The Sox only played 20% of their games against the ALE. So it's not much of a comparison.

    2018 AL Central catch all thread

    They were 49 - 27 against the ALC and 42 - 44 against the rest of the league.

    Your new Supreme Court nominee is....

    You sound a little like our network guy. He says he knows just enough about coding to be dangerous. Bmags gave a good example of how his degree doesn't necessarily relate directly to his job. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that simply have skills that they can apply to various different jobs and then they learn the rest while working. Sometimes employers look to see that you have a degree in anything simply because they want to know that you have the drive and ability to achieve something beyond HS. It's not a guaranteed of success. And I'm sure there are plenty of successful people without degrees. But I know the studies show that on average, those with degrees make more money over their lifetimes. The question I have is would making it free for everyone devalue it's worth? Would college degrees eventually be looked at like HS degrees where pretty much everyone has one and it's not really that special anymore?

    I've heard of a lot of people that went to college for one thing, then ended up in a career that's completely different.

    Taylor Swift convinced a whole lot of people to register to vote.

    2018 Cubs catch-all thread

    I'm honestly surprised that there isn't some sort of rule against having the ivy in the field of play where it can obscure the ball like it does. I'm also surprised they aren't made to have any sort of padding on the brick wall.

    You mean the game going on right now? Or who is pitching tomorrow for whoever loses?

    This year's goal: 99 losses (or fewer)

    That's close, but not exactly what I'm looking for. I want the WAR for all the players drafted #1 overall for say the last 20 years. Then the war for all the players drafted #2 overall, ect... I'm guessing the numbers between the guys from #3 wouldn't be all that much better than the guys from #5 or #6. It would be simple enough to do, just time consuming.

    This year's goal: 99 losses (or fewer)

    I wonder if there's ever been a study on the significance of where exactly a player was drafted. Like take the WAR of all the players drafted in the top 10 and see how much of a difference there really is. I suspect it would be pretty small.
