One should not describe themself but have their enemies describe them. you can quote that :)

Ive been told i'm a nice guy. I like sports (obviously I'm a big Cubs fan) and goofing off and just hanging out. I'm a full time student at the moment. I'm an eclectic guy with a lot going on.

What Will Happen To Mike Parisi?

Mike Parisi, the Rule 5 pick from the Cardinals is in a tough position. He's had a good spring but not great. He has a 4.05 ERA in 6.2 IP and 2 HR's given up. He also has four strike outs compared...

March Madness Bracket Challenge


Hey, I have created a BCB group on Yahoo for March Madness if anyone is interested. I made the league private so if you want to join, send me an email or put your email here. Ethanmk4 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Tim Marchman Ranks Baseball's GMs


Hendry is in the middle of the pack. Not quite low enough for Blou I imagine

Two Spaces Left for Yahoo Fantasy League!


H2H, 12 teams, basic 10 categories. Standard fantasy league for those interested. If you join, I'd appreciate it if you made your team name your username on BCB just so other teams know who they're dealing with. If you're interested, send me an e-mail at Ethanmk4 (at) yahoo (dot) com or put your email here

Marlins To Get All-Star Game in 2015?


Definitely wouldn't be opposed to this. But when is the ASG heading to the Northside? I imagine if the Triangle building is done by around then, the Cubs might get some interest for 2015 or 2017. Wrigley showed it could handle an event of this caliber with the Winter Classic IMO. Here's a few links to what the Marlins new stadium is going to look like

Carlos Delgado Could Retire


He'll be 38 in June and is 17 homers away from 500. Hall of famer? I think if he's under 500 hr's and was not outstanding as a 1B, I think he stays out. Here's a link to his career stats


Crazy Idea: Move Castro to 2B

Hear me out We all know Theriot is not exactly Derek Jeter, offensively or defensively (especially defensively....well...Theriot just isn't all that hot defensively). However one of the big issues...

Piniella Recognized at Charity Dinner


Pretty cool story. Piniella isn't the main focus but he's a two time winner and it's nice to see him get recognized for his contributions on and off the field


Slightly OT: Trivia

It's 10:30 and I've read through most of the stuff on here, and I'm bored at work (where have I heard that one before?). It's still two weeks before pitchers and catchers report, Sam Fuld isn't...

Dawson To Wear Cubs Hat At Induction?


Kudos to him, but not sure how he'll be viewed nationally for doing this or if it will change anything in the future


Official Let's Get Together At The Convention Thread

This is my official request to get everyone who's going to the convention to meet up and say what's up to each other. Sort of a breaking of the fourth wall type of deal.     I think it'd be...

Randy Johnson Retires


I'm sure you've all heard by now but I figured I'd open a discussion on how good of a pitcher Randy Johnson was and his impact on baseball. I always really liked him and hated the days when he had to pitch against the Cubbies. I'm sure you'll see a great piece written about him in the upcoming days but this is all I have for now.


Tell Me About Ryno

I did a similar post here about Ernie Banks where I noted in the first sentence that I wasn't looking at starting a series. But I'm bored and finals are not what I want to be focused on at the...

Bono Begins Tour In Florida


Matt Lindstrom traded to Houston for Robert Bono and Luis Bryan


Tell Me About Mr. Cub

I'm not exactly looking to start a series or anything here, but the Hot Stove has been pretty luke warm at this point. I'm looking for some reading while I'm at work.   I'm a college student, so my...


Crazy Idea: Rob Quinlan

A candidate for the outfield and the infield, Rob Quinlan is expected to become a free agent. He's been an Angel his entire career but never played a full season. I think this guy would be an...


This Might Be A Long Shot...

Jeremy Hermida   BAM   I'll let you know right now that this is a huge stretch but I'm wondering what you would think about him. He had a bad year last year, but he's got pretty good career numbers...

Oh Joy! Ned Yost Potentially back in the NL Central


He's a candidate for the Astro's position. I can't believe someone wants to give this guy a job. But hey, I said the same for Dusty Baker...


Which Current Non Regulars Have A Chance For Next Year?

Originally I thought this would be too early to post. None of the guys who were called up on September 1st (the day the rosters expanded) were making their Cubs debut. And it's the middle of...


Is Rich Harden Worth The Big Bucks Next Year?

Rich Harden pitched another gem tonight, going seven innings and striking out eight while allowing zero runs and three walks. His season numbers aren't fantastic but his second half numbers are...


Official 2nd Ted Lillyisms and Other Funny Cubs Stories Thread

Ok this week has been depressing enough. We need some things to cheer us up. This is the place to find them. Keep them clean and Cubs/Baseball related   Here are a few of my contributions: Hire Jim...


I Get That Lou Wants More Runs, But Why Change The Good Things?

We all know the offensive struggles of this team. If you don't, see April through July.   The team really started to score some runs with Fukudome at the top of the order. And he started getting on...

Tigers Apparently See Something We Don't


Either that or Steve Stone is an idiot. Both are plausible I really hope this is a legit source


Something To Make Us Feel A Little Better

Hope this helps while you wait for the game tonight.   If you recall, the Cubs traded for Garrett Olson, then prospect for the Orioles. We gave up Felix Pie, which at the time seemed like a great...


Managers We Hate To See The Most

So all of this talk about the Cubs/Sox series and Ozzie gasping for attention has gotten me thinking about how we see other managers, especially the ones we play the most. There are good managers...


My Two Cents on the Cubs Hitting Woes

Flash back a year from now. We were the most feared team in the league with the bats and had one of the better rotations in the league, if not the best. Our rotation is still very good. The only...


Does Andres Blanco have a future in the MLB?

Ok before you all jump down my throat, I KNOW he's had a very small sample size this year. He has played before with the Royals however.   That being said, the guy is 25, right around the time...


Why Are We So Quick To Move Randy Wells to the Rotation?

Randy Wells has been one of the few bright spots on the team this year, as we all know. Stepping in for Zambrano when we were desperate for anyone who could pitch and pitching lights out, he's...
