I was going to write this last night, but I felt it would be better to let my thoughts marinate overnight rather than just pulling the trigger. I was somewhat annoyed, after all, and I didn’t want to let any of that cloud my thoughts on the entire season.
But maybe I should have waited an extra day or two?
You’re Jerry Reinsdorf and Gar Forman, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
The Bulls season ended last night, and while I’ll have a post up on the season later today, right now I was interested in getting your thoughts. We all know everything Bulls fans want the team to do this winter, but what if they can only do one thing?
What’s more important to you: getting Carmelo or amnestying Boozer? A healthy Derrick Rose, or Nikola Mirotic?
So if the Bulls were allowed to do only one thing this summer — hey, maybe Adam Silver will go mad with power after banning Donald Sterling — what would you do?
Over a month ago I wrote about a report from Bruce Levine telling us how the Arizona Diamondbacks were interested in Jeff Samardzija after losing Patrick Corbin for the season. It was a move that made sense then, as Arizona basically put all its chips in the middle of the table this winter in the hopes of making a run in the NL West.
Then the season started and things haven’t gone according to plan for Arizona since. The Diamondbacks are currently the owners of the worst record in baseball at 8-20. But don’t go thinking a terrible start would cause them to change course, now. According to another report, Arizona is still just as interested in Samardzija, and may be even more desperate to get him now.
My expectations for Scott Carroll on Sunday were not very optimistic. Actually, that’s not fair. My expectations for Carroll were that he’d show up, get lit up like a Christmas tree, and then never be heard from again in Chicago.
Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.
If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.
And now that you know how to do it, let’s get to the this week’s questions.
Remember when the Blackhawks were down 2-0 in this series and we were all worried about the season being over? Well, thanks to this goal from Jonathan Toews, the Hawks are now up 3-2 and coming home to Chicago for Game 6.
