I fucking hope they are playing things right with KB, but I have very little confidence in Hoyer after that Darvish trade.

As far as KB being overrated, eh. I think he's properly rated. Teams are a little bit hesitant and rightfully so due to injuries and the fact that he's going to test FA.

I don't expect the moon for just KB, and I don't think the Cubs do either.

It sure is cute how the Cubs let him play for an inning and then pull him for 'hamstring' related issues when we all know they are just trying to keep him fresh.

He has 3 years left I thought? Either way that tall lanky fuck is just an enigma to me.

But I am not a Cubs fan so I am all in on any northside drama.

Nope, last year of arb this year. Scott Boras as his agent. Rumor was Cubs offered him 250m or something like that a couple years ago.

And shut up BD. You know Spiders was clearly the better option.

And Hawk was a terrible broadcaster. He brings less credibility to any HOF he belongs to ;)

Although @Trendy Bastard, there was nothing in this world like Harry Caray, 11 Budweiser's deep, singing take me out the ballgame. A classic

Let's fight. I'd hate him even if I wasn't a Cubs fan.

I'm too lazy to post the clip where he literally stays silent for minutes after the Sox give up a big home run. God awful. Their broadcast booth instantly got better by subtraction.

From the stories and clips I've seen and heard, he sounds hilarious. But just a bit before my time.

It is an acquired taste. You have to be part of the tribe to understand.

You should cherish your radio broadcast now that Len Kasper is over there. That shit still hurts. Fuck Boog.

Steve Stone is great in my opinion on the telecast.

Last year during the pandamic he really stepped up his game.

He was really doing much better of explaining pitches, calling out tells, reading pitches.

It brought a new element to the game and it is still going.

I love when they can really make the technical aspects of the pros really make sense to a lowly high school baller like me

I liked Steve Stone. I thought it was dumb of the Cubs to let go of him because he was critical of the team.

But it eventually led to my favorite broadcast team (biased of course) of Kasper and JD. Seinfeld references for days. Thank god JD is still around.

Hawk is an all time great.

Things work different on the southside, for one we have good food.

Trade Deadline coming up. I expect the CWS to empty out the Cubs bullpen.
