    Grillin' the goat...

    In the movie "Back To The Future 2" the Cubs win the 2015 World Series. A museum is giving away a DeLorean complete with a Flux Capacitor if they do.

    Rizzo says they'll at least win the division.

    I'm in......

    On paper, the Nationals look like the NL favorite.

    It will have been proven worthless; better for taxes.

    Back to back to back is pretty cool, even if it's Little League.

    Sorry you were offended.....

    Anyone who supports the Cubs in any way deserves what they get.
    Baseball like any other business has to make a profit or fold.
    Don't go to the games, don't buy the ugly hats and don't watch the tv games for one year and the owners will get the message.

    Unfortunately this isn't going to happen because there's sweetfuckall else to do for entertainment in and around wrigleyville.

    From Bleacher.......


    "Kris Bryant has been labeled a future star ever since his college days at the University of San Diego. He crushed a nation-leading 31 home runs in his junior season, and that incredible production made him the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft.

    To this point in spring training, Bryant leads the league with six home runs, per MLB.com, which is double what any other player has. He also leads the league in RBI with nine. His 1.400 slugging percentage and 1.922 OPS also are league highs.
    He is batting .450 in 20 spring training at-bats, and he is once again proving that his power is the real deal."

    Wrigley is a mess. They have a lot of work to do in a week.

    It'll be nice when it's done.

    It may not be this year, but they have themselves set up for a a very strong future. Theo Epstein will get his name up there with the likes of Branch Rickey if he manages to bring a WS Championship to both the Red Sox and the Cubs.

    Cactus League is weak!

    The road to the World Series goes through the Grapefruit League!

    :evil :lol3 :deal

    Also, left field sucks!

    This has been a public service announcement from your friends in the bleachers.

    Todays paper has the Cubs getting grief from the Players union over sending the young phenom to the minors, obviously to get more major league time from him.

    Now they want to shame the Cubs who are doing the right thing for themselves? :huh

    Yes. It's a dick move. This is supposed to be the year the Cubs win. If they store their phenom in the minors for 20 games, I can only hope he hits 15 home runs in AAA, comes to the big club in May, and the Cubs miss the playoffs by a game.

    Squeeze that profit. Fuck the team, fuck history, and above all, fuck the fans.

    Theo didn't write the rules.

    I'm gonna say he knows what he's doing.

    He's done it before......
