  1. I would assume it is because the Cardinals probably have the biggest fan base of any Central team not named the Cubs. And I doubt the MLB wanted to force the Sox & Cubs to travel when they can easily play their games in the same city.

    Metra Trains/First Time Home Buyer

    It doesn't have to be. We would really like to be within 20-30 min of our family (We will have two kids under 3) in case we need some help. We would obviously like a place as safe as possible but I would assume a realtor will be able to steer us from bad areas. I will check out the others you have listed, thank you! I probably should have mentioned we are fine with a condo/townhouses if that is what we can end up affording.

    Just thinking about Ricky having to make all these decisions makes my stomach turn

    Metra Trains/First Time Home Buyer

    I am reviving this thread instead of starting a new one. My wife will be going to Rush for school next year and hopefully working for them as well so we are looking to move up to the Chicago area. We will have two kids & two dogs and looking for something in the suburbs. We are very familiar with Mount Prospect/Arlington Heights area (we have family there) but I am trying to see if there are any other suburbs or areas closer to the city that would fit with what we are looking for. Looking to stay under 275K for a home so an affordable area, within 40 minutes or so to downtown (closer the better), a Metra or L station not too far away in case she needs to take a train, area safe for families with good elementary schools. We have looked at Schaumburg quite a bit because homes aren't too bad price wise but the public transit isn't ideal in that area. Also if anyone knows someone who is a nurse at Rush I would love to be able to ask some questions (or my wife will), just send me a message! Thank you for any advice!

    How does a commissioner actually get fired?

    George Floyd Thread

    Government can put as much money as they want into programs to help but at some point it is up to the people and community to change their ways as well to actually make a difference. Are all the gangs and drug dealers going to just decide to stop because of all the new government funding coming in? It has to be a two way street to help

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    Thank you for highlighting some SEMO guys, unfortunately I haven't been able to watch them play much the past couple years so I haven't gotten the chance to see Dodd pitch but he was considered a two way player coming from JUCO, but focused solely when he made the jump. Dirden came from Jeffco (Buehrle's JUCO) and had a great Junior year, he then got injured (shoulder I believe) at the beginning of last year and redshirted. He was off to a hot start this year and was probably going to break records, he has a great bat. Would love the Sox to pick up one.

    Owners say 50 with prorated so they pay even less

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    I don't understand why the players feel like there should be no salary concession?

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    Basically a free agency for the undrafted is going to be crazy
  12. Yeah, I would hope they don't wait until fans can be there. If they wait that long it might be too late in the year to start the season. Maybe limit the amount of tickets that can be sold for a while? Don't cram everyone in one section, spread it out a bit.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Don't try to support anything that has to do with Trump around here, not going to go well even if most rational people agree.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I don't think you would be locked down from driving back to your home but also not sure if any gas stations would be open for your drive back.

    Would shutdowns include local banks or is that considered essential?
