New Cubs Quizzes and NFL Playoff Odds

First a word from our sponsors and for you degenerate gamblers...


The Super Bowl lines  are out and the Colts (3/1) lead the way, with the New Orleans Saints (4/1), San Diego Chargers (9/2) and the Minnesota Vikings (15/2) following close behind. The experts have made their picks, what are you waiting for? Now is the time to check out the latest Super Bowl Lines, make your Super Bowl XLVI pick and show everyone who the real expert is before it's too late.


You got to pay the bills.

Here's a good time to remind everyone of The Bear Truth, the Bears blog that I and a few readers contribute on an occasional basis. I do like the Colts this year to win it all, on the other hand, I got 3 of 4 games wrong in the first round so pay no attention to me.

Also if you need some time wasters, I've created two more quizzes on sporcle - Cubs Top Draft Picks and Cubs Playoff Opponents. At some point, I'll add all of these somewhere on the site.

  • No I have been thinking actually that he seems to lead the Cubs with balls called strikes all year. He really shouldn't be expanding his zone to swing at many of those either because it wouldn't lead to anything good. He's seeing the ball well though so hopefully it'll even out.

  • So why don't the umps like Soler, or am I just imagining it?

  • Projected at 461 ft, with a 108 mph exit velocity - longest Cub HR this year by 20 ft (I think Arrieta had the longest?)

  • this team is full of horrible walkup music...rizzo uses 'marky mark and the funky bunch' more than he should...which is any at all.

    d.ross uses alphaville 'forever young' because lulz.

    lastella was using (still might be) 'oh what a night' by the four seasons.

    turrible turrible stuff.

  • Just noticed that Baez's current walk-up song is "Informer" by Snow. Dear God. That's world class bad.

  • Probably a good idea to give Rizz a couple of days off (slumps happen to the best -- Harper just broke a 4-for-33 with a HR yesterday). Never been a big fan of an all-RH lineup. The pitcher has the same look and same target for every hitter. At least, as a mediocre HS pitcher, facing a mixture of LH/RH hitters messed me up. A lack of talent and weak-ass stuff may have also been contributing factors.

  • Would you say Brooks doesn't have any upside going forward? Seems like he could be one of those hybrid starter reliever types maddon seems to like having in his bullpen. But I haven't seen a ton of him, and he got hit around pretty good last year in mlb

  • Well executed!

    I've been wracking my brain to work a "Room With a View" reference in there but I just haven't gotten it to work.

  • Bryant might be playing SS during an infield shift, no? Usually he is moved to 2B but it could happen.
