Two years in row Bryant was hurt...shoulder and being hit by a ball in the face last year and knee this year. Cost him all his power. GREAT player when healthy.

He passed up a $300 million life time contract 2 years ago.

Pitching staff must be over hauled. By Hammels.

Yu, Lester, Hendricks, Santana....maybe Chatwood will be the rotation. But I hope they add a guy to the front of the rotation.

Bullpen must be over hauled.

If the Cubs can retain Bryant and Castellenos and put out a lineup with them and Rizzo, Contreras, Schwarber, and Baez.  Throw in Hoerner and Heyward and that's quite a lineup assuming they stay healthy and the new batting coach instills discipline at the plate.

I like middle relief.  Starters are aging and is Kimbrel the answer at closer?

been watching the Bulls pre-season. The big men, Carter & Markkanen have not played well. Despite this the Bulls look good. Coby White had a real good game against Atlanta tonight.

I keep thinking I'll get back into watching the Bulls but they've sucked so bad and the NBA has been horrible..

My son is really into the NBA and is always asking questions about the old players from the previous century.

But I really can't get into watching today's games.  It's all 3's and layups/dunks.  I guess the 2 point jump shot doesn't fit in with today's analytics.

That's what I'm hearing. They either shoot a 3 pointer or drive the basket to automatically draw a foul...

If they stay reasonably healthy they should be competitive this year. And yeah that seems to be the NBA game. They shot 46 3's against Hotlanta. The rest of the League was way better last year

Re: Bulls, haven't cared since '98

Check out the center "toss".  Not sure if the LT blew an ACL because of it.
