    Trade chips = Melky + the entire pitching staff - Rodon.

    Hahn would have to be really blown away to trade Abreu or Garcia.
    I don't see that happening.

    I wouldn't mind if it meant the Cubs start chasing the SOX for the top pick. Didn't they go like 4-36 after getting swept by the shitty SOX in 1999? The Cubs were looking for a 90 win season the regulated amounted 162 games since they didn't do so the prior season IIRC

    Just sat down to watch the replay. First thing I see is George the M&M jacket guy walk down and take his seat. He is just too big of a distraction for me, following my thoughts, make me lose control of following the baseball game.

    Only one way to end this.......

    Top of the 7th inning starts up with a close up of him with Hawk and Stone laughing it up.

    Um, unless you work in the Cubs front office or something, that doesn't make you sound like any less of a douche.

    "We" had its place from the start of interleague play in 1997 until 2005, because both teams tended to inhale ballz, but after that...:fuckallthat:

    I say it unapologetically. To draw some sort of asinine distinction that it is ok to say we for amateurs but not for pros may be some of the most fetid and pretentious bullshit I think I have ever seen someone try to pass off with a straight face.

    Dan Bernstein would sometimes get on callers for saying this. Not all of them though. I guess it depended on what mood he was in. I understand the reasoning behind it but if not for the fans buying the tickets, watching the games on TV, buying the team merchandise and buying stuff from the sponsors of the team, the team wouldn't exist. So there is an argument for both sides.

    The thing is though, at the end of the day MLB is a business. Sure the product is different than other consumer products and it ignites civic pride among other things but the fans have a very minuscule effect on the success and failure of a team.

    Also part of the reason I don't like 'we' is, end of the day it's the athletes on the field accomplishing what they are doing. If the Sox are successful it's because of super athletes and skilled guys doing the work, not because I sit on the couch or pay money to sit in a seat in the stands. So in my mind 'we' didn't win anything in 2005, it was Buehrle, Dye, Konerko, AJ, Garland, Garcia, etc.

    Feel like you got your panties in a bunch over me saying "pro team"

    You really shouldn't do it for colleges either. Sometimes I say 'we' amongst other IU grads just to make it less confusing, but I don't see Indiana Basketball as 'we', either.

    It's one extra letter and the shift key to correctly write it as "SOX." ...and we don't need to distinguish which color of SOX since Boston doesn't have "SOX" on their hats or road jerseys. Their home jerseys also include the color designation.

    I use "they" when the SOX are doing their usual things... but I guess saying "they" is better when conversing at a beer and a shot type of bar.

    At my beer/shot bar the Cub fans say "we" and the Sox fans say "Sox" or "they" or "those people (Mexicans)"

    Also Cub fans clap a lot when they do something good. Sox fans usually give out a "YEAH" and/or a single clap.

    Seriously. Fuck the Cubs and their fans.

    Cubs go up 3-0 on a Contreras homer.

    Rodon then helps his cause with a 2 run double

    Bryant was bitching to the ump earlier in the game. Back in the old school, he would've been ejected for that alone. Instead, the ump gave him the business.
