Bulls 100, Raptors 93 (11/13/14)

I’m getting ready to see Tom Thibodeau lose his job, honestly. There are some things that are inexcusable, and using a 7-man rotation on November 13, 2014 is certainly one of them. I realize that the Toronto Raptors were 7-1, and a likely playoff team that you want to beat. That being said, you have […]

Let’s talk about Colby Rasmus

For some inexplicable reason, I’ve always been a Colby Rasmus fan. Actually, I can explain it – Tony La Russa hates Colby Rasmus, so I must love him. Traded for pennies on the dollar to Toronto, Rasmus (the former #3 prospect in baseball) has had a very up-and-down career so far. He’s now a free […]

Cubs theoretical offseasons on dynamic payrolls

I’ve recently speculated, as has Bleacher Nation, that the Cubs’ payroll obligations at the moment is around $65 million. MLBTR just came out with a graphic touting the number as $61 million. I trust Brett and myself more than Tim, but we can all agree that $65 million is close. Since that number is so […]

Let’s talk about Torii Hunter

There are a few reports that link Torii Hunter to the Cubs out there.   A number of teams have expressed preliminary interest in Torii Hunter, including

Bulls 102, Pistons 91 (11/11/14)

Sometimes Bulls fans don’t appreciate just how good of a basketball player Derrick Rose is. Sure, Rose has missed an awful lot of time in the past 3 years, and it’s robbed a player on a HOF trajectory of some prime years. That sucks. When Rose is even close to healthy, though, he can drastically […]

Should the Cubs pursue Evan Gattis?

The rumor around the water cooler is that the Braves are aggressively shopping Evan Gattis. The Cubs are in the market for an upgrade at catcher, kicking the tires on Russell Martin (who wants a 5/75 deal. move along, little doggie.). Martin is known for great pitch framing and plate discipline. Evan Gattis isn’t known […]

Bulls 95, Bucks 86 (11/5/14)

Full Disclosure: I didn’t watch this game, as I was (and am) battling a fever at the moment. Where has Doug McDermott gone? Dougie McBuckets has seen his minutes shrink from 24, to 17, to 11, to 11, and now to 7 minutes this season. It doesn’t seem as if Thibs trusts the young fella […]

I hope we miss

Today is the first day of free agency. The Cubs are linked to many of the top free agents; from Max Scherzer to Jon Lester to David Robertson (wtf). If I’m being completely honest, I hope we miss on all of the top free agent pitchers we are linked to. My reasoning is very simple. […]

OV Team Auction Results

Last spring, Myles had the idea that instead of just compiling our dumb predictions about the upcoming season, we should do something a bit more interesting. The idea was for each of the OV authors to pick a group of teams and track those teams throughout the season to see whose group did the best. […]

Bulls 104, Knicks 80 (10-30-14)

Honestly, it wasn’t even that close. One of the great strengths of the Bulls this year is how extraordinarily deep they are. Evocative of the Bench Mob 3-4 years ago (and headlined by the same player), the combination of Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, Nikola Mirotic, Aaron Brooks, and Tony Snell are going to bury second […]

Daily Facepalm 10.29.14 – Game 7 looms

Following a 10-0 beatdown from the BABIP gods, the Giants and Royals play game 7 tonight. I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed this world series, considering I have essentially no opinion on any player on either side and am mostly rooting for the Giants due to my dislike of Ned Yost and the […]

Rest in Peace, Oscar Taveras

The baseball world received a terrible piece of news yesterday night, as Oscar Taveras died in a car accident at age of 22. His girlfriend, Edilia Arvelo, also passed away. My thoughts go out to both families. May they find peace. Baseball is a game that I, among many others at this site, have a […]

Hire Joe Maddon?

Joe Maddon exercised his option to leave the Tampa Bay Rays today and is now a free agent manager looking for his next job. Almost immediately after the news came out, multiple reports from guys like Buster Olney, Ken Rosenthal and others linked the Cubs to being interested in Maddon. Cubs Twitter, as it does, […]

Giants Defeat Cardinals for NL Pennant

The 2014 version of Cardinal Devil Magic died tonight in San Francisco as Travis Ishikawa tore the head off, burned the corpse, and dumped the ashes of it in holy water with his walk-off three-run homerun. In the aftermath, @BestFansStLouis was happy to find a Cardinals fan to provide the eulogy: FUCK YOU GIANTS FUCK […]
