    There isnt much about the 62 acre lot. These are the renderings I can find: https://www.som.com/projects/the_78 I think the Sox are stuck in their current park for the foreseeable future.

    It would have been advantageous for sure, but at least for Chicago there are already 2 huge developments (Lincoln Yards and the 62 acre site south of Roosevelt), that are in the works. The Lincoln Yards development may get a USL team.

    Population drops are coming from lower income. Higher income population is going up. https://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20180530/BLOGS02/180539986/chicago-attracting-more-young-well-off-residents-census-data-show With the creation of Lincoln Yards and the development of the old train yard near Roosevelt those numbers should continue to increase.
  5. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but no way is anyone leaving $75mil on the table. I doubt that Boras would leave 10mil on the table. If Sox offer $10mil more and another team is willing to let Harper walk over $10mil, I guarantee Boras tells Harper to go with the higher offer because it would be insane to miss out on Harper over $10mil over a 10 year period. Thats $1mil a year, so many garbage playrers get $1mil.
  6. 50 mil at 1-2% isnt much for boras, but no way he sets that precedent for his clients. If you want to give discounts boras isn't your agent in the first place. You have boras because cash rules everything around me.
  7. 375 compared to 400 is nothing.
  8. No. Boras client will take the $50mil. The biggest discount i could see is $10 mil total, and even then id extremely doubt it.

    2018 Video Game thread

    Yeah I dont really play that much anymore, but I also have never not bought the top end game system at the time. Ive also never bought an Xbox (always PS and Nintendo), and I was going to get the PS4 pro until I found out it had no 4k blu ray. Eventually Ill have to get the PS because FF7 will be on it, so its hard to justify getting both top end systems. (edit) And thanks for the response, its nice to hear from people who actually have the item.

    Agreed. And its not like he even recognizes the reason they played small were to keep Carter out of the game.. I wanted to like Hoiberg because I was just happy Thibs was gone, but they are going to need a coach who can do better.

    Do you have an S or X? Right now for black friday an S is going to be $199 + minecraft junk. The X will be $399. All the reviews say the X is way more powerful, but not sure its worth $200 more

    Yeah I just saw it, thought that they did a pretty. Not sure what you mean about the ending as there were multiple things going on.

    Anyone own an Xbox? If so any comparisons between the S and the X. Long story short, Im looking at 4k blu ray players and was considering getting a XBOX S for that purpose.

    At least a dozen killed in CA bar shooting

    I appreciate your perspective. I think sometimes people use PTSD as a way to try and reconcile how someone who we are all taught to respect and want to emulate can do something so horrible. Nobody wants to go out there and say "This guy was always a killer" or a "monster" because then we have to admit to ourselves that not all people in service are good/honorable people. So I think that people try and make the excuse that its not the guys fault, its the PTSD that made him do it. The unintended consequence is what you have been discussing in this thread, but its not really something that ever gets discussed.

    Hoiberg's minute distribution and coaching continues to be terrible. He took Carter out and subbed in Parker for last play. Somehow Parker got stop but unless it was a purposeful tank move that is inexcusable. I didn't realize Arcidiacono actually had some decent college pedigree at Villanova. He definitely is earning time and glad hes getting a chance.
