I thought "Bigmouth Strikes Again" was the subheading for the OTP thread today.

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps fend off free radicals. That's the approach to take, I would think.

So the Cubs might be interested in trading for Pablo Sandoval?

This is likely the sophomore year for a dynastic Cubs team. Still to be determined.
   7. Brian C Posted: May 16, 2017 at 08:38 PM (#5457004)
Eh, they're one decent winning streak away from being right back in first place in the division.

   8. Franco American Posted: May 16, 2017 at 09:31 PM (#5457086)
Sure. Just a comedown from the heights they scaled last season. I don't hear much complaining, that's for sure.

There's so much destruction, all over the world. And all you can do is complain about the Cubs.

Its hard to complain when the cubs are defending champs.
