    I'm well educated and versed in many aspects of life.

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Missed this post. Off color is great, as others have said. Apex Predator is just so good.

    Badler Day - our 2020 Intl Review

    If Colas is the real deal and the Sox decide to pursue him, you'd have to think we're definite frontrunners with our group of Cubans.

    Does he have a lipper in during these events?

    Goose Island Sox Golden Ale

    Three absolutely incredible beers. Tripel Karmeliet and La Fin are probably in my top 5. Not a huge fan of goose island beers. However, I had a few of their Next Coast IPAs at a bulls game and it was much better than their typical beers. I was pleasantly surprised. I've been back on an Apex Predator binge lately. Not a fan of most sours, but Apex Predator (technically a farmhouse ale) has the perfect hint of sourness for me. Very quality beer. That said, in a Revolution fanboy through and through. Can never go wrong with Anti-hero. A little crazy is their seasonal Belgian IPA. One of my favorites. We have a beer tasting event during a Christmas party at work. An employee has a brother that is a brewery at Rev. He brought in about 15 different rare beers of theirs, all 10%+. It was incredible.

    Easier said than done. Might as well restart the clock while they can. If they want to retain their talent, they'll be breaking the bank soon.
  7. The most improbable perfect game imo. Couldn't believe it when I saw that Philip Humber threw a perfect game. Did the batter go on the last pitch? It was close enough to go either way.

    Tino doesn't have 1/10th the class that Paulie has. Paulie also rocked a wRC+ of 118 while Tino had a wRC+ of 110. Paulie was a better hitter.

    Paul Konerko makes the HOF if he is a Yankee, imo. The Yankee bias is crazy

    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

    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.

    Long-Term Viewership Trends for Sports

    ^ 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

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    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.
  23. Anybody else on board with getting a legitimate MLB manager? I know the optics may be rough, but Hinch would manage circles around Ricky. What I'm not clear about is the punishment. Does he have to be employed for the suspension time to count? Or can we just hire him next year? Anybody else agree this is the way to go? It would be buying low on a good manager.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    How about the dude who won the batting title?
