re: Sanctuary Cities - 300 identified, Cities Counties and States - oilfieldtiger on 11/18/16 at 8:45 am
[quote]it's a defacto sanctuary city. [/quote] To build off of this, there was a story on the NPR here about how a lot of cities have found themselves in this position not out of a particular political leaning, but due to legal precedent and liability for the taxpayers. Here's the crux of the stor...

[quote]Pedro Alvarez[/quote]what amazes me about the pedro experience is how he was historically bad at both 3b and 1b for totally different reasons. at 3b, he was pretty good w/ the glove and got to probably more balls than he should have, but when he threw to first it was anyone's guess. so ever...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

you know, people say "defense at first base? how hard could it be? it's first base." i don't know that bell is bad in a pedro - "i don't understand how this can be happening at the big league level" - alvarez way, but he's just awkwardly learning out there. Polanco kinda looked that way in RF ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I was at the game where he hit the grand slam. It was awesome, PNC erupted. He has a really good approach at the plate, so hopefully he can keep making ground at 1B. that defensive substitute stuff for him has to end. His bat is just too valuable....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

no, there's certainly potential, and they're no reason to hit the panic button. more time for taillon and kuhl. more time for bell. cole gets reset. polanco is coming into his own as a rising star and clutch hitter. could shape up pretty well next year, but damn the central is just impossible. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: CHC 8/31: Cubs 6 Pirates 5 | Final | Cubs Sweep!! - oilfieldtiger on 8/31/16 at 10:12 pm
watching cole and cutch struggle has been enormously frustrating. the way they choked coming out of the break w/ a pretty easy slate of games ahead of them was terrible. the game monday was the season in a microcosm -- fight back, in a position to win, piss it away when guys that shouldn't s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

not surprised the ruling was out after reviewing whether arrieta was blocking the plate. the pirates broadcasters didn't really know how it was going to go. i don't think anyone disagrees that it's a good baseball play, but still real confusion about that rule....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

The cubs are certainly the best team in baseball, but the sloppiness defensively and mistakes really started Sunday against the Reds and has continued in these...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
