  1. Cubs to sign Joey Gathright?

    I assume it's a really cheap back-up plan when Bradley and Abreu sign elsewhere. I also assume it means Felix Pie's time is just about done in Chicago.
  2. Big 4 team deal in the works?

    They want to get Fontenot (and his lefty bat) in the lineup more often. They're even talking about trying him at SS in Spring Training. I don't think he's an everyday player, but this is the Cubs, so I've stopped trying to figure it out.
  3. Congratulations to Obama - 44th President

    Hi Danimal!
  4. Couple former all stars are now free agents

    I could see the Cubs kicking the tires on Anderson. He seems like a Hendry guy.
  5. Dow up 890 points!! Why?

    I enjoy watching his mental decline. Could you imagine how bad this would be if he actually liked the GOP candidate?
  6. Dow up 890 points!! Why?

  7. So what is it about the fringe left...

    So is hail2theblue coming back to this thread? I'd love to hear his "wisdom" now...
  8. What's the appeal of the bleachers at Wrigley?

    In my opinion? Very little. Upper Deck Box is where it's at.
  9. Government bails out AIG, takes 80% ownership

    Was this discussed? I'm lazy, and didn't really check. Or is this some sort of more subtle joke I'm missing?
  10. http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/16/news/compa...dex.htm?cnn=yes Here's my favorite part: I don't even want to know what "assets" they think are being used to back this loan. But on the plus side, the government is getting some nice juice on the loan, provided they ever get paid back:
