Glad they did this now instead of during the season.  Donald Trump would have spent 40 minutes ranting about what a bitch Laura Ricketts is for supporting Crooked Hillary (as Todd Ricketts uncomfortably stared at his shoes).

...the appeal of "esports" is entirely lost on me.

Tyson Ross reportedly signing with the Rangers. FIRE THEO.

Nah. Might be a good bet that Joe's pet Travis Wood will be brought back now.

They were still making Red Eye?  Thought it had been discontinued years ago.

Thrill has posted the new Dead Pool thread 4 different times and I keep deleting it.

Power has changed you, man.

We're not big TV people

Sorry, my eyes rolled out of my head after reading this part so I didn't finish your post. My wife is typing this for me.

"You shouldn't listen to my opinion about TV. Now everybody listen to my opinion about TV."

So jumping off Maddon's comments from yesterday, and understanding it won't be a straight platoon situation, something like this?

vs. RHP
Schwarber - LF
Bryant - 3B
Rizzo - 1B
Zobrist - 2B
Russell - SS
Heyward - RF
Contreras - C
Jay - CF

vs. LHP
Zobrist - LF
Bryant - 3B
Rizzo - 1B
Contreras - C
Russell - SS
Heyward - RF
Baez - 2B
Almora - CF

With Montero catching Jake and maybe once more per week, and La Stella getting maybe a start a week.

Added the positions so I could see it better.  Not sure how I feel about Contreras 4th.  The troika of Schwarber-Baez-Zobrist is interesting. 3 players, 2 positions.

Agree on Contreras - I don't think there's a clear choice in that cleanup spot if Zobrist would indeed slot into the leadoff spot.

I would like both of those lineups a hell of a lot better if I knew we were getting Pre-2016 Heyward. If Heyward hits you can slot anyone in that lineup other than Jay/Almora 1-7 and you're still scoring a metric fuckton of runs.

I would too. Then again, sports probably wouldn't be very fun if we already knew what would happen before the games started.

If I knew the Cubs would win the championship every year for the next decade, I'd still have fun.

Not only do they not have to shake Trump's piss-stained hands: they also get to troll the most famous White Sox fan.

Can't wait for the tweets about how poorly the Cubs are run after the world champs snub the Cheeto-in-Chief.

So who was the one guy who said Wade Davis?

We all know Jed reads this board. Is that something we know? Never mind.

Quick reminder: Lucroy turned down being traded to Cleveland.

...when he learned Yan Gomes would still be the starter despite his being bad and Lucroy being good. How dare he.

Did this video thing ever happen? If it did, may I please have one and I love you.

It's bad. They spend the first hour recapping the season. 45 minutes without commercials. 15 of that on the regular season, the rest on the post. And then another 5-10 minutes are spent with Len, JD and Dan Roan talking/reminiscing in studio.  The second hour is a straight rebroadcast of the rally.

Haven't dumped it from the DVR yet, but haven't bothered to transfer it.

Agreed.  It was a letdown.

Everything is terrible. 2017 sucks.

My Grandad died in his sleep.  I hope I go like him.

And not screaming and terrified, like the passengers on his bus.

I think this is the original Dad joke from which all other Dad jokes stem. My Dad and Grandpa have each told that joke more times than I count.

I could fill a book as big as Infinite Jest with all of the Dad jokes I was exposed to growing up, and yet I had never heard this one.  Classic.

At this point in my life telling Dad jokes and getting the rolling eyes response makes my day. Every time.

One of my dad's favorites is a call-and-response. Usually told after everyone is already laughing from something:

"Who has more fun than people?"
"Monkeys, there's more of 'em."

I've never heard it anywhere else.

I wish BN would stop trying to make Baseball Is Fun happen. I didn't care until that clickbait stuff started getting crossposted to BN, Kinja-style, presumably because no one is visiting BIF. Someone should tell them Cut 4 exists so there's no reason to keep trying to make their own not-as-good version.

Given that BN is Brett's main source of income, there's a very good reason for him to try to do this.

That said, I think he'd be better off spending the time and resources elsewhere.

I totally get it, too. It's his livelihood so I can't begrudge him for trying. But he's been retweeting @flippingbats more and more lately and if I wanted to see it, I'd just follow the actual account.

I didn't even know that was him. Educational.

Now you know that baseball is fun.

Still laughing about Jon Hamm attending Cubs playoff games in Cardinals gear, for some reason. Hope he got tickets to the games in Cleveland.

Right next to the guy with the "Cubs choke" sign.

Another guy I hope choked on his Provel-stuffed shitburger during the World Series: Bob "Pedro Strop's Hat Offends Me As a White Man" Costas.
