Go ahead.. Get it off your chest.

I'll start.

I think Madden sucks.

I also thought Duke Nukem Forever was a good game.

Yeah, I'm still pretty bad.. oh well. Traded Scherzer and Ike Davis for Kyle Gibson, James McDonald, Logan Morrison and Trevor Plouffe. Maybe that should go under confessions.. I like Gibson though and needed a 3B pretty bad in my dynasty.

Is the trade as bad as I fear?

I think Lomo still has some decent prospect left in him, if he ever gets his ish together. Him and Dom Brown laugh out loud

Wow. Jury's out on Kyle Gibson but his k/9 has been showing an increaasing trend from 2010 - 2012 BUT in 2012 he pitched 38 innings of rookie ball, 7 innings High A and 6.2 innings of Triple A so the numbers are a bit skewed. (wait..how did he pitch in 2012 if he had TJS? I'm confused).

He's still a top 100 guy and he has a shot at the rotation this year. But here's the last thing I read about him:

Gibson working on velocity: The Star Tribune reports Twins pitching prospect Kyle Gibson, who had Tommy John surgery in September 2011, said he is slowly adding velocity to his fastball as he continues his recovery. Gibson, who is a candidate for the rotation, said he is having trouble adjusting speeds. "My changeup is anywhere from 82-85 [mph], so it's pretty close to my fastball, which is slowly climbing back into the low 90s," Gibson said. "With my slider at 84-87, that's not enough speed difference."
(Updated 1/28/13)

James McDonald's first half last year was driven by some luck factors and his second half crash has some speculating that it was due to fatigue but I think overall it's because he doesn't have consistent control. He's still young enough to become a succesful pitcher in the bigs but he's really gotta figure out consistent control first.

LoMo: Jury's out on this kid. And he's a tough read for 2013. That knee really messed with him and so far he's never been the same since. Watch him in ST and see if health is on his side this year. If so....he just might provide some profit.

Plouffe is a decent get I guess but his contact rate isn't great (78%) in 2012 and his not so great batters eye will end up hurting you in terms of BA. His power is for real but for some reason he's only projected for about 420 AB's this year....not sure why.

I think you suspected as much but I probably would not have done that deal. =(

I've spent a ton of time playing COD and consider the campaigns near unplayable
The campaigns are the only part of COD I really like and think they're good stuff. (Except BO2 campaign was... eh.)

Confession:
I installed Age of Conan again after trying it briefly when it first went f2p. The Herald of Xiott is a cloth-wearing mage, but he uses a big two-handed sword and his spells only work at melee range. He even gets a cool charge ability later to make sure he's always in the thick of things.

In practical terms, squishy + close range is a bad combination.
In fun terms, I played it for 20 minutes and am now wishing I hadn't because now I dread the thought of playing the game for many more hours of fun because I know it's actually a waste of time.

Btw, this applies to a lot more games than just this one, installing SweetFX can make the game look crazy better by pumping up the sharpness and colors and things.



Another one:

after: http://i.imgur.com/KABl8hV.jpg
That's crazy.

I saw a thread somewhere the other day that had a large collection of before and after thumbnails for a bunch of different games but can't find it quickly now. Some of them don't gain much, while other games look ridiculously better.

OMG surely you jest!

haha, I actually find general baseball talk to be boring as well. But when it comes down to player analysis that's when shit gets really interesting for me.

But of course, you and most others think, "same difference!" ZzZZzZzZZzZzZZz

Well, general baseball talk is: "Damn, see that catch last night?!"

Roland-baseball talk is: "Did you know Asdrubal Cabrera's WAR divided by wOBA is 8.7?!"

laugh out loud

oh yeah? i picked up trout immediately after someone dropped him after week 3 Whee
so there!
scherzer wasn't my problem, dropping Kuroda hurt.

Oh and spending like $300 out of $1000 budget on Tyler Clippard cause you know, picked him up, did bad for 2 weeks, dropped him, then he was named closer again and picked him up again.

Nothing like spending 30% of your Free Agent Budget on Tyler Clippard

That pick up of Trout shaped the rest of your season. Without Trout your team would've finished 4th or 5th. It was a HUGE pick up to say the least. I was upset with myself for sleeping on him that week.

You know I blew my entire FAAB in the first half right? lol.

I need to mock draft tonight to satisfy this damn itch. We should stop talking about FBB in this thread too. haha

I've never played a FPS single player that really impressed me (unless you count the original Portal). They're just not all that fun IMO. For some reason I get sucked in by the hype from time to time.

For instance I never bothered to keep playing HL2 once I got to an area where they pretty much forced me to use the gravity gun. That just seemed like a stupid gimmicky weapon and I got bored quickly.

I didn't use a spoiler tag because you just seam to take them for granite. But don't worry old chap, I'm hear to help you. For all intensive purposes, your probably relying on spell check a bit to much. But who knows, maybe this post is a blessing in the skies for other people who make similar mistakes, or maybe it's just a mute point and all for not.
