Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

the ninth inning thing is a terrible nonsense nightmare, but i like the make-your-own-lineup thing quite a bit for both teams starting in the eleventh or something. as the sam miller piece argues, if we’re going to negate the fun of long extra innings, let’s install something that would be even more...

Re: JD Martinez to Red Sox 5/110

Let's pay $100 million for a 30-year-old outfielder that already can't play defense to try to make us a 99-win team instead of a 98-win team and in the process go over the luxury tax and have right field accounted for when Bryce Harper is about to join us next year. There's a segment of Cubs twitte...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

i’m going to go out on a limb and say the contract we asked arrieta if he’d accept was similar to the darvish deal in that it was on that would allow him to play major league baseball.

it sucks, but my expectations for red dead are honestly pretty low as a result. it only makes sense that the game will have a nice but short single player and then shove you into online forever. hopefully i’m wrong. But GTA V's single player wasn't short. They can do a robust single player game AND...
