    ALDS- Twins/Yankees

    Nah, I mean a better representative than the Twins.

    Something I want everyone to know.

    Sports are fun and all but if I were you I'd try to find some other hobbies where your mood cannot be affected by the outcome of games or how teams are managed. Believe me, we're all as frustrated as you are that our teams are like this. But there's got to be a more positive thing you can do for your psyche then stew about it on message boards. Like Sunday, Bears lose, that effin blows. In my younger years I may have b****ed on message boards but now it's just on to the next thing for that day. I enjoy good sports conversation, hence why I am here, but there's no sense at all allowing festering negative thoughts to be shared unless you have to absolutely get it off your chest. Which shouldn't be necessary for something as trivial as sports games.

    ALDS- Twins/Yankees

    The AL Central needs a better representative. Time for the Sox to step up. At their best, I know they won't lay down and die when they play the Yankees.
  4. Wtf y'all find something better to do with you lives than being meatballs bickering on a message board. Bears lost a game they should have won. They aren't as good as they should be. Packers are killing it this year. Bears have an uphill battle. We will see what they're made of now. If it doesnt work out, tough shit, what else are you used to?
  5. They definitely deserve it but I'm not interested in listening to that and the Cubs managerial search all week. Fortunately, Lawrence Holmes is the man and finds ways to talk Sox and Blackhawks during his 2 hours sometimes.
  6. Haha, yeah, back to WDCB I think.

    Official 2018-2019 NHL thread

    Anyone think the Hawks might surprise some people this year? I'm not convinced or anything but I think they could have a pretty good year. Itd be nice if they turned into a Cup contender again. Hard to believe theres been 2 whole disappointing seasons since that letdown sweep by Nashville.
  9. As for what I would trade, that is a tough question because I think that whatever I propose would get laughed at by Red Sox fans or front office. Basically, Robert is the only true untouchable but I'm also not really interested in trading Madrigal or Vaughn. I've also said I'm not too interested in trading pitching prospects. I think Steele Walker would have to be the headliner here... and he's not THAT much of a headliner. Quantity over quality then... so Walker and 1 of Adolfo/Rutherford/Basabe/Gonzalez, then a low level guy like Lenyn Sosa and then that 4th nobody prospect that nobody cares about. Then throw the bank at Betts, sign him, and don't give a crap you traded 2 of the systems best OF prospects.
  10. Mookie Betts is a generational talent and he will no doubt sign any deal that is in the 400s. He'd frankly be stupid not to. There's no need to "test FA" when the team that has control over you blows you away, which we saw by and large last offseason. If you intend to do this, and the asking price isn't completely insane, this is an absolute no brainer. If you can construct it more like Harpers to disperse the money over more years, even better. The question then becomes, if the constraint that the Sox would absolutely sign him to an extension and Boston's asking price isn't crazy were met, what then becomes the offer we would give up? It's mental masturbation, but it is fun to talk about and dream about. I'd like to avoid dealing SP prospects as we need as many of those as we can, so what package of position players get the deal done?

    Will Jose's number get retired?

    I know his WAR and defense sucks, but if Jose can kind of take this year with his obsolete stats and make it status quo for a few more years I think he's got a good chance. With the lineup we could be building around him its feasible he could improve on this years numbers if he stays the same. His basic numbers could look beastly the next few years if he's driving in 120 with this "meh" lineup.

    9/26- Sox vs Indians, 7:10

    2 straight shutouts against a team with their backs up against the wall? I will fucking TAKE that shit. Good to see another team shitting their pants when the chips are down. We need to go into next season feeling like we are this teams daddy!

    State of Chicago baseball: the tipping point

    Probably too early. I'm still holding out hope for an all Chicago World Series in the next few years, and I think their core is still solid enough to do so. Pitching has got to be better for the north siders, though.
