    Anybody have a guess at what the Bears should or will do with the 20th pick?

    Chicago Cubs 2021 season

    I never said Walker shouldn't be in. But I think if he's in then Sosa is deserving. The point about players having to be elite for more than a decade to get in just isn't true. And I don't think the guys from the steroid era are going to get in unless its years and years from now.

    We can agree to disagree. It seems like you are using WAR to exclude Sosa from the HOF, and justify Walker. If you look at Walker's career, he had a pretty good 13 year stretch but there are several years in there that it would be a major stretch to call "elite." He had some pretty average...

    Chicago Cubs 2021 season

    I really don't understand this reasoning. We can discuss WAR all we want. Sosa had 9,900 ABs, 2,408 hits, 609 homers, 1,667 RBIs, and 1,475 runs scored. His BA was .273 which isn't great but OK. That's a HOF career. To say Larry Walker deserves to be in the HOF over Sosa is kind of amazing...

    I don't think anyone is insinuating that Beckert was a better offensive player than Sosa.

    Brad Underwood season wrap press conference

    In particular at the guard position, when you look at what Baylor could do with their size and length defensively along with their quickness. I do think Ayo and Curbelo are athletic, but compare Baylor's guards physically with Ayo, Curbelo, and Frazier. Your comment also begs another question...

    Brad Underwood season wrap press conference

    Underwood has done a great job turning the ship around; He'll have to build rosters with more size and athleticism to contend for a championship.

    I really haven't understood all the media talk about how this is a decent team. I really don't see it.

    Nagy will resume play calling duties next season, no big surprise. Another lame press conference from Pace, with this bombshell-"We're excited to have Andy Dalton." Wow, who knew. Was unwilling to discuss at all what went wrong with Trubisky.

    Spring Football 2021

    Just piggy-backing on the other comments here, Lovie and his staff sound egregiously bad. I'm wondering if Whitman ever sat down with him and asked what the hell was going on. Most of us fans had the same impression that Smith had such a hands-off approach to everything. Kind of surprised it...

    So I guess Pace was a genius not to draft him in 2017 :unsure: Just kidding. I hope these allegations are not true, either way it's a terrible situation. The timing of this just seems odd. Is it possible....and this might be one of the dumbest posts of the year so I apologize in...

    Loyola Chicago 71, Illinois 58 Postgame

    It’s frustrating to try and process what’s happened sometimes after a disappointment like this. I’m sure most of us thought the Illini had a great shot to make the final four. I feel for the players in that there’s no shot at redemption. There’s no next game in a few days, the same group of...

    Thought Curbello played hard but didn’t play well. Should be a learning experience.
