Re: The Video Game thread

I considered the SteamLink for PC game streaming since I play most of my stuff off of there, but I also have games that aren't. Because of that I've been considering the NVidia Shield, but it's awfully pricey. Maybe when I get my next Scrooge McDuck check I'll splurge on it. You can add games from ...

Re: The Video Game thread

I went a slightly different direction with it and got a Steam Link and Steam Controller. It was about $120 after shipping. Now I can play games like Civilization on a 52" tv while chilling on my couch. Using the right touchpad as a mouse took a bit of getting used to, but I figured it out prett...

Re: The Video Game thread

Apparently the NDA for xcom 2 dropped today. There's a bunch of videos and new info online, and even a guy streaming it on twitch.

All of those customization options look great. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Re: Mike Leake

I actually kinda like the deal for the Cardinals. He's likely to be worth the money. That said, as a Cubs fan I'm happy they're spending that money on a pretty consistent guy without much of a ceiling. The Cubs are a better team than the Cardinals right now, and absent some truly bad luck for the Cu...

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

I would definitely set the lineup like this:

Heyward
Zobrist
Rizzo
Bryant
Schwarber
Soler
Montero
P
Russell

L/R broken up perfectly and high OBP near the top. Leaves Schwarber and Soler near the bottom for double switch purposes.

Re: Star Wars Thread

I'm curious if those of you who aren't old-ass men were raised with the originals on VHS from older siblings or something. The last of the originals came out before I was born, and I was never really exposed to them as a kid, so when TPM came out, I went and saw it, but wasn't really geeked out or ...

If he opts out, the signing bonus is no longer deferred. So 3/78 or 4/98 if he opts out.


Yeah, still good.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

Heyman finally got the contract details. In short, big signing bonus is deferred, the 2nd opt out is conditional, and he gets a NTC. https://twitter.com/jonheymancbs/status/676875118258331648 https://twitter.com/jonheymancbs/status/676875547532787712 https://twitter.com/jonheymancbs/status/67687600...

Heyward wore the number 22 for his press conference. I wonder whether he's already paid up for that or what.

Don't waste him with that dunce. you're gonna be calling heyward a piss break player next year if we get him. i know it.
