    MLB cheating scandal

    Because Manfred doesn't have subpoena powers. The best they could do is "Tell us exactly what happened and I won't suspend you".

    2019 Video Game Thread

    This came up in a White Sox thread and was derailing the topic. I am about to buy the $140 version and not sure if I'll regret it. I have a gaming PC but almost never play shooters on it since I exclusively play shooters on console because that's my comfort. I only play RPGs and strategy games on PC. Idk how I can't buy it though, the game looks fantastic and has a shit ton of elements I enjoy in PC games. The learning curve seems really high in EFT and the game is already pretty hardcore. My brother has been playing it since it launched in like 2017 and told me this better be the only game I play if I buy it lol. Goodbye heavy modded XCom 2 and TW:Warhammer 2.

    I'm about to buy it like right now. I'm one of the nerds that watches people play games on Twitch (when I'm working) and I'm sold.

    Long-Term Viewership Trends for Sports

    So the video game stuff/eSports is kind of funny to me. I'll give a quick online video game history lesson. I played competitively for $ at the very start of competitive console gaming on a website that used to be called SocomBattles.com around 2003/2004 when I was 14 or 15. The website was for the Playstation 2 game SOCOM 2 and had a very competitive ladder. Socombattles.com turned into Gamebattles.com which I played a ton of competitive games such as Socom 3, Socom 3: Combined Assault, then eventually the original CoD 4: Modern Warfare, RBSV 2, CoD Black OPS, CoD MW 2 et cetera. CoD4 onwards turned into Major League Gaming on the website and in turn exploded to what is now eSports. Around the same Counter Strike was the competitive game on PC IIRC. Fun times.

    Long-Term Viewership Trends for Sports

    This is incredibly anecdotal but at least on my Facebook with my friends it's easily NFL, MLB, NCAA then a mixture of Hawks/Bulls depending if their good or not. I'm in my very early 30's. I don't think there is necessarily some down swing in MLB viewership in my age group. There are just a shit ton of Boomers.

    Man that's not even a bad deal for Minnie. The old hope they get hurt or fall off strategy is not ideal.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    Jon Jay has more power too.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    How is this in any way immediate? He has 1 year to serve the suspension and could take over for Ricky next year or the following year. This is a hypothetical scenario in which some voters voted they would like Hinch to take over for Ricky, because he's a better manager. Instead of just seeing it for what it is you went on a rant about people being "amoral". It's sports.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    You don't know that. He hasn't even served his time yet, and this is the sentence MLB gave him. If they thought he should have been Rose'd, they should have did it. It's quite the holier than thou approach to state wanting Hinch to take over for Ricky, an inferior manager, makes one "amoral". It's a sport, I don't want him to be my priest.

    I'm sorry, I'll call your virtue signal and raise you people can be rehabilitated and deserve a second chance.
