Hey Jack, cool down man, you’re looking too excited there, don’t want to get too high.
No but seriously, he’s going to murder someone tonight right?
Looka like a skinnier version of every girl ive ever banged
Except his bases loaded strike out yesterday By the time the Cubs have all their "prospects" where they need to be, Rizzo is gonna be Jeters age!
It was sarcasm, "bright guy", implying the Cubs suck and will continue to suck for a long time if their magic "farm plan" doesn't plan out. But I thank you for the math lesson.
Seriously, it was all in good fun (I thought). Just poking fun at the Cubs as I've done for years. If you're a Cubs fan and can't laugh at them then I'm sorry. Then CP trying to come at me like he's somebody. I love the Cubs, always have but if you don't have a sense of humor about this team, then you're going to have rough, countless years coming. I'm a realistic Cubs fan, not a typical yuppie Cubs fan. My apologizes for offending anyone.
They do, man. But I'm saying they suck "lightly" if that makes sense, hence the, . And the Jeter joke was in reference too how old/good Jeter is vs how young/good Rizzo is. Sorry if you didn't see where I was going with that. At some point, for me anyway, you gotta laugh at these guys. I don't necessarily buy into what Theo is doing with this farm system but we'll see, now.
They have some great young players so I AM looking forward to the future but you know damn well if his plan doesn't work, it's going to be an absolute mess. Anyways, it was just a joke that apparently you took the wrong way; but it's all good, moving on
I remember reading an article a while back about how something like 70% of baseball prospects don't amount to anything. This was a while ago (maybe around mid 2000's as I was in the military when I read it) so maybe things have changed but at this point, the Cubs have no other options. I agree with clearing cap space but the Cubs have one of the lower caps in baseball so it was a good move. I mean if half their prospects amount to anything to get them a pennant, then great but they'd need A LOT of help from the farm. I guess I'm a pessimist in a way and maybe this farm system will get them where they need be but after all these years, cleaning house seems to be the only option left. So in a sense, yeah, they are forcing fans to buy into because what else can they do?
