For me, it's a chance to passionately debate about something.  There are very few people I know in life that are as passionate about the Cubs as I am and nowhere else I can go to have intelligent discussions.

 

I've said it before, I REALLY wish there was a BN for other areas where you could have an honest discussion and debate.

Isn't that what the message board is for?

 

I'll start, ACA sucks. ::ducks::

Not to distract, but I wonder how many people will read ACA  and know what it is? In the mean time I'm still wondering who this Cargo guy is that fans want the FO to trade for.

I figured Cargo was self explanatory. With the high turnover rate everyone is wanting us to own our own cargo units to cut the price of shippig.

 to cut the price of shippig.

 

We don't know what the price of Shippig will be yet.  If he hires Boras as an agent, it could go through the roof.

 

What we should do is offer 16 or so players from our farm system that aren't likely to ever produce a career WAR over 3 in the majors in a trade for Shippig before he hits free agency, because everyone knows trading a massive volume of fringe or lesser prospects is the way to make great deals.

A friend of my cousin has a co-worker that knows a guy who is related to Ryan Braun.   Top that!

Well it's been fun guys but I just don't think I can stick around for KyleNation, I'll be around here on the MB but the main page is just not going to be too negative for me to really comment.

Well.  Holy shit.  What a crapfest on the front page.  Good article from Ace, though, for those who bothered to read it before joining the gang bang of Front Office skullfuckery in the comments.

 

I can't wait for spring training to start up.  From my point of view, everybody else can just go fuck off.  

 

 

Well, except for those of you I like.

Yeah it was great and brave article for Brett to write but now it's a clusterfuck of "I told you so" and getting into any conversation is a wasted experiment.
