The NBA Aging Curve and its Implication on the Chicago Bulls

I'm writing this FanPost to flush out some of my own thoughts, which have been stewing around in my brain these past few weeks since Derrick Rose went down. It goes without saying that the Derrick...

Why Tanking is a Bad Idea

A mediocre team is twice as likely as a lottery team to become a contender within 5 years.

Grantland Blurb on David Lee

For all of you who wish we'd signed this guy. AKA evidence that Carlos Boozer is only the 2nd-worst defending PF in the league.

Doolittle on Deng's /Noah's Minutes

Insider article from ESPN on a pretty popular topic of conversation around here. The takeaway: "All in all, there is nothing in the historical record that generates a huge red flag for Thibodeau's use of Deng and Noah. Indeed, the numbers show that Thibs, as usual, knows what he's talking about. "

Baseball Prospectus on Trading Away Top Prospects

You need insider to view the whole thing, but the cliff notes are that top prospects who get traded away tend to be less successful. This is obviously very relevant to the Trevor Bauer and Wil Myers trades.

Top Cubs Prospect Lists from Fangraphs and Baseball Prospectus

I was perusing the internet and saw that Fangraphs and Baseball Prospectus had posted their updated Cubs' Top Prospects lists. I hadn't seen them discussed here, so I thought I would post their...

Cubs Let Go of 6 Scouts

Just a quick Keith Law tweet. Didn't see anyone mention it anywhere else.

Minor League Ball Posts on Soler, Rusin

Link takes you to post on Soler. Rusin is at http://www.minorleagueball.com/2012/8/20/3255849/minor-league-prospect-scouting-report-chris-rusin-chicago-cubs

Cliff Lee on Waivers

I would claim him. 4 years $100 million is a lot of money for a 34-year-old pitcher, but Lee is really good and probably worth it. If you can add a pitcher of that caliber without giving up anything, why shouldn't we do it?

Sullinger Not Invited to Draft, Expected to Fall to Late Teens or Twenties

I don't know what's wrong with his back, but if he can stay healthy, he'll be an absolute steal for somebody.

Hollinger's All-Defensive Team. Three Bulls listed. His DPOY is Tyson Chandler. The article, which is insider, makes a pretty compelling case, IMO.

Baron Davis to Knicks

Knicks are gonna be actually good next year.

Prokhorov to Run for Russian Presidency

I'm starting to get the feeling that someday we will all be bowing down to Emperor of the World Mikhail Prokhorov.

Amnesty Clause of CBA Includes Auction Process

Apparently, the NBA's thrown a wrinkle into the amnesty clause provision.

Fangraphs on Jefry Marte

Mike Newman over at fangraphs discusses 3B Jefry Marte, a former top 10 Mets prospect who was left unprotected for the Rule 5 Draft. He specifically mentions the Cubs a possible destination for him. Thoughts?

Why Teams Fear the Chicago Bears

An ESPN article explaining why the Bears are a dangerous team.

John Calipari, Derrick Rose settle suit

Derrick Rose in the news, although not exactly in a good way.

Dispelling a Myth (Samardzija's Repertoire).

Hey everybody.  This is going to be a pretty short fanpost, as I don't really have a ton to say.  I would've simply made a comment in the recent fanshot about the possibility of starting...

Nominate Blogabull for Best Chicago Blog

CBS is running an online poll of the best Chicago blogs. Spite YFBB by nominating his website - he hates polls! It'll only take a sec.

Gabe Carimi's Wikipedia Page

Check out how ridiculously detailed and sourced this thing is. 68 cited sources for a lineman who's yet to take an NFL snap. It's actually pretty hilarious.
