  1. Hey all, I've got a framed 24x36 Jim Thome poster I'm looking to sell. Negotiable on the price. Shoot me a message if interested. Can ship or meet in person in the Chicago area. http://bit.ly/2rHGfV7

  3. QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Jan 21, 2016 -> 01:43 PM) I know that much, but you can't deny that he's been showing far more offensive ability than any other winger has this year on that line. I don't believe he sticks for the whole year, but someone else has to be better, preferrably Teuvo. There are 2 reasons Shaw is so successful on that line. 1, due to not being a center, he has more freedom to roam around the ice and 2, since he has 2 of the best defensive forwards in the NHL on a line with him, he can be way more aggressive. The top line wasn't doing much of anything until Shaw stuck there. I'm not attributing Toews' resurgence entirely to Shaw, but it's certainly helping.
  4. I really like the Sekac/Garbutt deal for the Hawks. He's younger and FAR more skilled. I was just watching Sekac last night against the Wild, and he can create some scoring chances. It certainly adds a little offense for this season, and hopefully they can lock him up for the same salary because he has potential. And obviously as stated, this frees up over 800k in salary for next year.
  5. Just came back from 5 days in Denver. Dammit do I love that city. In one afternoon, I drove up to and around Lookout Mountain for incredible scenery, saw the Buffalo Bill museum and grave, went to Red Rocks and walked around, did the Coors Brewery tour and also checked out Mile High Stadium. The drive south to Colorado Springs/Pueblo is also really gorgeous.
  6. How about a little credit to Stan for finding TVR, Panarin and Gustafsson out of the blue? And I'll be the first to admit that I hated Anisimov being the main piece in the Saad deal, but he's proven me wrong. That line is unreal.
  7. QUOTE (bmags @ Jan 20, 2016 -> 01:11 PM) Anyone think Marian Cilic is a likely person involved? I think that'd be too obvious in a Grand Slam final. Djokovic came out the other day and explicitly said he was offered 200k to throw a match back in 2007.

    QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 12:08 PM) Chat crew was the best part of soxtalk. Wow. I'd totally forgotten about that. 97% of the conversation had nothing to do with baseball. I'm coming up on 13 years?!?!? And 25,000 posts?
  9. Apartment hunting in the city of Chicago = not fun.
  10. Charleston/Savannah/Tybee Island/Atlanta for the next week. Can't wait.
  11. As someone who has worked in MiLB and gotten to know a lot of minor leaguers personally, ABSOLUTELY. You'd be surprised how many of them rely on saving the per diem they get on road trips as extra income.
  12. QUOTE (GoodAsGould @ Mar 28, 2015 -> 02:15 PM) Anyone ever do Body Beast and if so can you give a review? My buddy did it last year and said he absolutely loved it. 90 day program focused on bulking up. Considering looking into it myself.
  13. QUOTE (SoxFan1 @ Mar 24, 2015 -> 02:04 AM) In August, I was at 212 lbs (I'm 6'6). Last month, I weighed in at 189. Stress/work/breakup made me lose months of hard work in the blink of an eye. So now I'm back at it trying to get to 215. Weighed in this morning. Gained 3 pounds this month, up to 196.0. 19 to go. I eat a lot of food.... - Breakfast: 3 eggs (scrambled), wheat bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon, banana - Snack (after my workout): Protein shake, Chocolate/Peanut Butter Clif Bar - Lunch: 2 big Salisbury steaks - Snack 2: Apple with peanut butter - Dinner: Chicken alfredo pasta - Dessert: Greek yogurt with chia coconut granola, flax seed, honey and fruit
