Samardizja has to be the Cubs All-Star selection at this point

I've loved Shark this year but IMO, it's Garza. He's having a career year.

Dempster has the best ERA in baseball. He's our guy.

Cubs actually have a playoff calibre rotation so far. We'll see if it lasts, but I like what I see. Also not sure we will have even a 15 game winner given the offense.

It'll be Castro and Dempster.

Peavy and Dunn for the South Siders.

LaHair, Garza, Dempster, Samardzija and Castro are all incredibly viable options. Samardzija is most likely a no though.

LaHair is a top 10 player in baseball right now.

CJ Watson lost us this series. Played idiot basketball.

Why the **** does he give the ball to Omer Asik with 7 seconds lefT??????/ He is a ****ing 50% free throw shooteR!!!! What an idiot. Not to mention him taking awful shots ALL NIGHT and missing almost all of them. Give the ball to someone else you scrub. You are like 20% FG shooter. You suck so bad.

Can't believe we lost to this garbage team. Disgrace

CJ Watson 14-58 on field goals these playoffs. What a sucker. 24%!!!! He completely blew the series for us. Worthless player.

The Bulls don't have the heart of a champion IMO. Even with Rose and Noah healthy, doubt we got very far. I don't feel its a question of depth, which the Bulls have, but a question of heart.

Do you watch the Bulls? There are plenty of flaws you can call up and back up legitimately, but questioning that team's heart manifests someone who isn't paying attention.

The team's heart is what they're known for. It'd be just as reasonable to question the 80's Oilers teams for not having enough offense.

Yeah, sorry I don't buy the fact that a team that finished with the best record in the league back to back years doesn't have heart. That is insane. Teams with more talent like the Heat have had worse records than us... who doesn't have heart again?

CJ Watson was our worst player all series and you take him out, add our best player and this series would've been won in 4 or 5 games. A healthy Bulls team is in the Eastern conference finals again this year. An old Celtics team wasn't stopping us, give me a break. CJ Watson shot 24%! You take that scrub out and insert one of the best players in the league and this series would've been a cake walk. Not to mention how heartbreaking it was to lose your best player and how inspiring for the 76ers it was. Now our guys are thinking "wow, we had championship aspirations but now we are screwed". 76ers are thinking "we might actually have a chance... we suck but they just lost their best player".

Good response.

And say what you will about Watson tonight but Boozer had 3 points. Also he backed up his hilarious pass to row 15 in Game 5 with a pass to a phantom PG in the 3rd tonight.

Bulls need two things:

1) An irrational confidence guy like JR Smith or Jamal Crawford

2) A backup traditonal point guard that can run the pick n roll with boozer.

He would be if he got more than two runs a game from his offense.

By comparison the Cardinals' Lance Lynn has been supported by over ten runs a game.

Thibodeau is starting to look like Barry Trotz--a regular season coach.

this is Tib's 2nd year. I also have a whole other host of reasons of why that's completely asinine but I'm sure they're all perfectly evident.
