Baez is murdering the ball again, hit his 16th home run yesterday. 328/.438/.803 with 8 HRs and 8 walks in June and .276/.338/.556 overall in a pitchers league

Bulls talking contract extension with Deng. I hate John Paxson

Cullksinikers 06-25-2013 02:28 PM

He's not a second scorer on a legitimate title contender.

I don't understand how anyone can consider guys without coaching, front office, or scouting experience like him and Kerr qualified to be GMs. At least we Cub fans can proudly claim to the only American major league team that has been around since 1908 and not won a championship since 1908. ;)

Is anyone claiming that?

DisgruntledHawkFan 06-25-2013 03:24 PM

Mike Magee might be the MLS level stud that turns the collection of highly capable starters we've got into a playoff/championship team.

My only issue with him is he turns my favorite Fire player ever, Chris Rolfe, into a depth piece because he doesn't work well with Magee.

No, but it seems as though GarPax does and is loyal to him.

Seems to me like they value a guy who plays 46 to 48 minutes of well rounded basketball and leadership.

Glad I have something to get me through to Bears season. Season looked like a total waste until that deal, but they haven't lost sense.

Cup win yesterday and Marmol cut today?

Good couple of days.

The Chicago Cubs designated beleaguered relief pitcher Carlos Marmol for assignment, likely ending Marmol's time with the only team he's played for since entering the big leagues in 2006. "This is probably the best thing for both Carlos and the Cubs," Marmol's agent, Paul Kinzer, told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine. "But Carlos hates leaving Chicago. He's loved his time there, having been in the organization his entire career. "I had another player who was designated for assignment a couple years ago, and that was Edwin Encarnacion, and now he's an MVP candidate."

The Oduro - Duka trade which everyone thought was a bust turned out to be pretty great because of Rogers rights. Funny

DisgruntledHawkFan 06-26-2013 06:34 AM

Duka is playing like a decent winger himself.

Illinihockey 06-26-2013 02:35 PM

Heyman says the Cubs and Kris Bryant aren't even close to getting a deal done.

Illinihockey 06-26-2013 03:00 PM

KC Johnson say the Bulls have contacted numerous lottery teams to see what it'd take to move up.

I'll be there tonight for the USOC Quarterfinal. 3 wins until the other Cup :laugh:

DisgruntledHawkFan 06-26-2013 08:35 PM

Anyone else at the Fire game? Pm me.

IU Hawks fan 06-26-2013 10:08 PM

My buddy backed out and he would've been my ride home, so I didn't :(

IU Hawks fan 06-26-2013 10:19 PM

The announcer on this stream is so obnoxious and horrible. Yikes!


Mike Magee, he scores when he wants!

committedindian86 06-26-2013 11:54 PM

I was in Section 8, my season tix are there so you can always find me in 118 unless the Hawks or Bears are playing

IU Hawks fan 06-26-2013 11:55 PM

My buddy has Section 8 tix...probably has been to 4 games all year.

:shakehead

committedindian86 06-27-2013 12:03 AM

Probably one of the people who sit and don't chant :laugh:

Edit: which is completely ok, if your tickets aren't in a supporters section

Chris Hansen 06-27-2013 03:35 AM

Bulls looking to acquire Aldridge from Portland in exchange for Deng+.

Would have to be a hell of a plus. I'm for it as long as it's not Noah.

Nothing will happen, most likely. Bulls have seemingly been shopping Deng ever since he was drafted.

EDIT: And Portland already has Batum anyway, forgot about him.

No, he stands. Just hasn't gone a lot due to the Hawks and leaving town a bunch.
