    Random thought–I wish Cub fans would stop talking about “assets.” I understand the concept and its applicability, but I guess it annoys me that seemingly every armchair GM that follows this team must use Thoyer-speak.

      Hey, Random IT guy,

      Who used “assets”??

      Wanna play wordsmith???

      What’s the “applicability” (IT nerd word) of “assets”? (You say you “understand”)

      “understand the concept”? (Mine. In this specific post)

      Who used “Thoyer-speak”?

      Be specific. Quote a post. I’d love to engage further–

      if I knew what what you we’re talking about.

    hey cubs, do us all a favor and just forfeit the last four games of the season!

    Ever notice how often they play the song “I don’t wanna lose your love tonight” at Chase Field? Give me Wrigley Field and old time organ music any day!

    When you say that the cubs are 0-fer out west, are we talking the whole season? obviously this roadtrip has not been good, but the whole season doesn’t sound right…

      No, the whole season. The Cubs are one loss away from being the first team in history to lose every road game to a single division in one season.
