    It is fascinating to me that both Chicago teams playing in the market they do are always so consistently bad, but more so the Cubs because of their national drawing power. Wrigley consistently sells out, they have national branding and a tv deal behind them probably with only the Red Sox, and Yankees being more popular. Yet since 1908 they have been unable to produce 1 winner. I get the increased difficulty with mlb expansion making it so if every team took turns winning a world series it would happen once ever thirty years, but come on. Buying star power doesn't always guarantee a winner as we have seen in Anaheim, but its not as if the Cubs would struggle financially if they consistently threw out a 200 million dollar roster like NY, Bos, Det. They would get into the playoffs more often then not and probably have won a world series or two within the last 20 years. They really have no excuse for being so bad, so often.

    Well big market teams didn't really get an advantage until the early 90's. Before that it depended on how well you ran your franchise and of course it was a shit run organization for a long time. Now the Cubs have the structure in place because of Theo to be really successful and really throw money at players if they need to. Basically they can become the Dodgers with less spending power but they are in line for a TV deal soon so who knows, maybe they'll be right along with the Dodgers.

    Wrigley was a moron, from everything I've heard. So that's 60 years down the drain right there.

    I know a guy who worked with him at Hewitt at the time. Said he was just a totally normal dude. Have to respect the way he's turned down every single offer, including some pretty lucrative ones. If he were a doosh, he could probably be set up for retirement just based on his notoriety.

    Took one for the team and watched the game with friends at Merkle's tonight.

    :shudder:

    Wasn't really that bad though - most people were paying more attention to football.

    Cub fans don't pay attention to the game? :shocker:

    More than once, I've witnessed Cub fans in bars loudly cheer replays of HRs that happened innings earier because they thought it was live.

    Just overheard the following conversation in the hallway.

    Cubs fan: It's been so long since we won the World Series!
    Yankees fan: The Cleveland Indians haven't won since 1948.
    Cubs fans: "Cleveland Indians"? Are they still a team?
    Yankees fan: You're asking if the Cleveland Indians are still a team?
    Cubs fan: Yeah!
    Yankees fan: Um, yes. The Cleveland Indians are still a team.

    Did you bring up how many 90 win seasons the Jndians have had in comparison to the FLUBS or mention the disparity in the number of articles each team gets in USA Today?

    The average price for Cubs tickets is going up about 10 percent, the team said Friday as it sent out 2016 invoices to season-ticket holders.

    The number of marquee games also has been increased from nine to 14 in the bowl and the bleachers, while one section of outfield terrace reserve has been reclassified to corner box reserve, with a 38 percent increase.

    Current Trib headline asks if Kris Bryant can be a "cross-over star" like LeBron.

    Hosed asks what % of Chicagoans could pick him out of a lineup?

    I'm guessing it's because he's not only a really good basketball player, but he's also been in a movie and lots of commercials. Reminds of another guy that used to play in Chicago...

    Kris Bryant played 151 games this season, seems like a fairly normal season now a days to me for a starter :shrug:

    Yeah he essentially played a full season. Will he a crossover star. Not likely. Trout is a better player and plays near LA and people who aren't baseball fans don't know who he is.

    Most baseball players for some reason don't settle down with super hot chicks, they marry chicks that normal dudes marry. Or in the case of Prince Fielder, you marry a fat chick that kind of looks like Miguel Cabrera. But here are some examples:

    Peavy's wife:

    [​IMG]

    AJ's wife:

    [​IMG]

    I chose these 2 as examples because my friend showed me a picture of this girl he knows who was fucking both of them at the same time, so I figured their wives must not be anything special... I was right. She was better looking than the wives, but not super hot either.

    This is in contrast with soccer players where the ugliest or scrub player marries a 9 or 10.

    Probably best to marry a 6-7 who's just happy to be there while going around and fucking all the 8+s on the club scene when on the road half the summer

    Surely some huge % of MLB and NBA players fuck a different chick in every city, regardless of what their wives look like.

    Remember hearing some Cubbie fan say that's his hikes school sweetheart. Definitely don't go the Jeter route and taste the world. Get married as a 23 year old (future) millionaire.
