    2019 Video Game Thread

    Yeah, it's really good stuff. I got into from watching others stream as well. I haven't really played a PC FPS consistently since TF2, and before that CS 1.6 and DoD. I love the RPG aspect of it. I'm still getting clowned on by guys with better aim and ridiculous kits.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    Somebody is salty towards the Cubs.

    Jim Bowden Top 50 Prospect List

    You call that a dream? .300 hitter with 30+ homeruns? Pfft. Vaughn's winning the triple crown, at least once. Get your pessimism outta here

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Man, what a trade that turned out to be. Can't believe Marcus Semien put up 7.6 freaking fWAR last season... He also played 162 games this season and 159 the season before. Impressive stuff. Dude has made the absolute most out of his talent.

    Look into escape from tarkov brother... Unless you don't want another addicting game taking up your time. It's addicting as hell.

    ^ live streaming videogames is bigger than you think, and it is still a relatively young "industry". It has only been around for 10-15 years. People are becoming millionaires from streaming videogames. Big names like Michael Jordan, Drake, Jerry Jones and many others are investing in esports teams. This is an industry that will blow up in the future.

    Long-Term Viewership Trends for Sports

    Esports are on the rise and they aren't slowing down. Watching live streaming of videogames is big with the younger generation. It's free to watch and you can interact with the gamers through the chat. I think it will cut into the viewership of all major sports

    Do not want. Nolan's stats outside of Coors aren't that impressive. We could have just signed Rendon, the better player imo, and not have to trade assets.

    That would never work. It would impact the entire season far too much.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Agreed on all fronts. You can't keep them all. If Moncada keeps it up, he'll be playing for the Yankees in 4 years.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    He's a big dude who has been pretty banged up. I think the injury concerns will suppress his value lower than the Cubs will be willing to accept. They don't have an easy decision to make here.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    How about the dude who won the batting title?

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    The lousy roster doesn't excuse his asinine decision making. His lineups were an absolute joke. How can you defend batting Yonder cleanup as often as he did? Yonder had a historically bad run here, yet Ricky kept trotting him out there in the cleanup spot.
