  1. Electric Boogaloo is a documentary about Cannon Films, one of the most prolific film companies of the 1980s. They made stuff like Lifeforce, Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, Invasion USA, Superman 4, and more.
  2. In the off-season, I don't really care who I trade with. During the season, I make sure that if I'm dumping players that they are going to contenders, and if I'm getting a rental I'm getting it from a team out of contention. It wouldn't make sense for the D-Backs to give me Robbie Ray if they were winning. And I made sure to give them a solid, young MLB player and a prospect to make the trade work.
  3. I lost in 7 games to the Dodgers. I do like my team, though, so the off-season was me bringing back nearly everyone (including Robbie Ray, who I originally envisioned as a rental only). I did make 2 changes to the team. First, Ben Zobrist had declined and would have been OK, but I wanted to add a little more speed to the line-up. I was able to get Dee Gordon to replace him for a season. The bigger move was at short-stop. Tim Anderson is fine, but hadn't really grown. So I packaged him and my best RF prospect (mid 70s, A potential) to Colorado and brought in Trevor Story. It's a bit of a risk, since Story is a free agent at the end of the season and will need a HUGE deal. Still, he's an upgrade in every way from Anderson and adds more pop to a line-up that (outside of Daniel Palka) was more of a high-average team. I also added Yadier Molina as my back-up catcher. He was still decent, and James McCann needed a real contract so I couldn't keep him. OH - I almost forgot. My closer (Alex Colome) was a free agent, and another team gave him a great contract that I didn't want to match, so I sent Danny Salazer (who had struggled and didn't start in the playoffs for me) to Texas for Jose Leclerc. So my starting line-up going into 2021 is this... C - Wellington Castillo 1B - Jose Abreu 2B - Dee Gordon SS - Trevor Story 3B - Yoan Moncada LF - Eloy Jimenez CF - Bradley Zimmer RF - Marcell Ozuna Bench - Travis Jankowski, Leury Garcia, Yadier Molina, Eric Thames Starting Pitchers - Gerrit Cole, Robbie Ray, Carlos Rodon, Reynaldo Lopez, Michael Kopech Relief Pitchers - Jose Leclerc, Jeremy Jeffries, Juan Minaya, Alex Bummer, Jace Fry, Kelvin Herrera, guy I drafted who I can remember the name of for long relief
  4. Haha, we did that same thing with Quake. Our teacher also didn't seem to mind as long as we actually got our work done first.
  5. Yeah, and locking up guys during the season can also boost their morale if they are out-performing their old deal.
  6. Only issue I saw in season 1 (but not season 2) was that for half my roster, no defensive stats were tracked in simmed. So Moncada and Abreu won Gold Gloves, but my best defender (Bradley Zimmer) recorded zero put-outs in games I simmed, so he was not eligible for a Gold Glove himself. I haven't seen this in season 2, but I haven't gone through the rest of the league yet.
  7. I'm in the World Series with my White Sox against the LA Dodgers. Game 1 was a nail biter - both Gerrit Cole and Clayton Kershaw pitched shutouts, but the game ended up going to extras where in the 13th, a bloop single, a stolen base, and another single gave the Dodgers a 1-0 series lead.
  8. It's fuckin' Star Trek. The science doesn't have to be perfect. Does going in reverse really slow time, allowing you to avoid the effects of a Romulan Plasma Torpedo? Who cares - it's all made up! The biggest complaint I've seen about the show from people is that it's forcing PC culture down their throats... but I don't see that. To me, the show just looks like Star Trek. I think people are just looking for something to complain about because they want to say "I don't like it", but they feel like they need a big reason or something. It feels like they just want to complain.
  9. Yeah, I don't have a prototypical lead-off hitter in my line-up, so I have Tim Anderson in the spot against the left (9th vs. RHP), and then Bradley Zimmer leading off against the right (9th vs. LHP). So if I had three stars on my team, that wouldn't work. Luckily, you can negotiate with players for status. I was able to get Ozuna to sign for me over another team by promising him star status, and now he's in the 3rd spot everyday.
  10. That bugs me so much, since I want my best overall hitter in the #2 spot.
  11. I'm with you. I'm a big fan of Stroman. I'm also not an old school baseball "guy", so I like it when the players show emotion or have fun.
  12. I played as a Tinkerer, retired, switched to a few different classes, then went back to the Tinkerer. Was my absolute favourite class to use.
  13. In my White Sox game, I have one player - Gerritt Cole - making big money. After Cole and his $30 million per season, my next highest is Marcell Ozuna at $12, then Wellington Castillo at $6. Although this upcoming off-season will require big paydays for Yoan Moncada (RFA) and almost my entire pitching staff (UFA).
  14. I've been on a kick of listening to horror movie soundtracks over the last few days, and it's got me thinking - what are some of the best original soundtracks out there? I'll start with one of my all-time favourites...
