Looking history I highly doubt that laugh.gif
post #26144 of 77312
Like looking at the Warriors history, right?

Theo's track record brought 3 World Series to Boston and their inept history. Things can change.

Warrior fans and the Clippers fan for that matter, should grasp that.

What does the Warriors' history have to do with the Cubs'? laugh.gif

Every time you take a shot at a team in the NBA thread should we bring up the Cubs' history? The Cubs and Clippers are both pahetic. Thankfully, the Clippers don't play in the MLB.

I didn't know the Warriors play Baseball? laugh.gif

The point is is teams eventually turn their fortunes.

If you want to play dumb, fine, what does the Cubs history have to do with Theo Epstein's history of success?

I used both your basketball teams, because they have turned their fortunes in recent years, hence, you should understand it happens. Didn't realize you guys couldn't put it together on your own. I apologize.

Major surgery on both knees now? Kid is very talented, sad to see.
post #26153 of 77312
Oh look. A condescending reply.

The cubs as of today are dog **** and have not won in 100 years. I'm not saying they will never not be dog **** but until they prove otherwise I will continue to call them dog ****. As a Clipper fan, I know what dog **** smells like. Like you said, we might as well get the jokes in while we can.

Manny still gonna have as many clutch hits as JD for the rest of the year...
Le sigh
post #26155 of 77312
Sucks to hear about Manny....he was really hitting his stride before the injury.

Upside on Machado surgery: Small abnormality found in left knee also exists in right. That will be fixed during surgery.

Rumors swirling that they're gonna make a play for Beltre....which means Manny goes to SS next year. Peace out, JJ Hardy.

Welp, just means Chris Davis (for now) at 3rd and Steve Pearce at 1st. Gotta hope that Davis finds his bat in the interim.

In other news...we out there in Wrigley pimp.gif

I wonder if the Cubs go for Jon Lester. Now that'd be something

Word is them and Yankees are the biggest two suitors for Lester.

He could but it's not likely.

They were almost $100mil less than what he wanted.

Jon Heyman on Lester
Quote:
Lester, off his big season, is expected to be able to command $150 million or more as a free agent -- which is more than double Boston's initial offer to him back in spring. Boston's opening bid of $70 million for four years was just that, but they never got higher since, as one person put it he "cut things off," referring to the talks.

The issue now, is if they can restart the talks while Lester is a free agent, where do they start? With the assumption that Lester commands $150 million plus as a free agent, one rival executive said of Boston's chances to get anywhere close to that, "The Red Sox aren't going to admit they made an $80 million mistake by offering $150 million, one rival executive said.

It isn't close to certain the Red Sox see their opening salvo as a mistake, anyway, but there's nothing to suggest the Red Sox would go anywhere near $150 million, not for a pitcher who is 30, not even for Lester.

There was word when Boston broached the idea of re-starting talks around the start of July that they might have been willing to go to $100 million for five years at that time. However, Lester, as he told CBSSports.com at the All-Star Game, was "thrown off" by Boston's midseason attempt, suggesting he wanted to concentrate on a season that was slipping away, at least for the Red Sox.

When the Red Sox traded him, the belief was that they understood its chances to re-sign him were slim, and there's no reason to believe they believe otherwise now. The trade itself raised Lester's value by eliminating the possibility a qualifying offer may be made (and the draft-pick attachment that's affected recent free agents), and the Red Sox understood that.
