|yeah, once i found out futurepress was doing the guide i kept an eye on bayonetta to see if those outrageous ones actually sold. either they were pulled or sold i don't know but some of the ones i saw (between $234 and 250) haven't been re-listed so that's why i assumed they were sold.|
it probably won't be worth the time just to flip it but it probably will go out of print quick. i doubt they're going to pump out a lot of 400+ page guides.
|Video Game Topic: Game Over (473) | Posted on Oct. 3, 2011, 1:27 p.m.|
but is anyone actually going to pay that price
probably. i watched the bayonetta one for a few days and saw a few go off at at the $250 range.
then again, it's bayonetta and we all know how creepy that fanbase can be.
in all honesty it doesn't matter much to me. i liked the little demon's souls guide and found it to be a neat read. this guide by futurepress is going to be my personal one that i'll look at and maybe read at night when i finish my books and don't have any new magazines. plus i don't like having to have my laptop open all the time when i need to refer to something (last guide i bought was for metal gear solid 4).

|i know you can get stuff on wikis for free but if anyone is remotely interested in picking up the dark souls strategy guide i suggest you do it now.|
futurepress, the company making it, puts a ton of work into their stuff. it's hardback and 400 pages but here's the main reason: they have a huge second market. just look at what their bayonetta guide is going for nowadays,
again, if for no other reason grab one of the dark souls guides and just put it on a shelf for a few months or something.

the hilarity option and the only "big hire" i would expect them to get, if they get or steal anyone, would be scioscia because the angels management and he are supposedly at each other's throats (fun fact, i wrote a blog post about this and as i was typing colin cowherd said the same thing, then again i don't like being on the same wavelength at colin cowherd).
i wouldn't mind hale. i would burn fenway to the ground if it were valentine, torre, or la russa. i wish it could have been farrell. curt schilling would be hilarious and amusing though probably a total disaster. i have already accepted it will probably be like jim riggleman.

|yeah, i've read that clique stuff on other forums. theo said in a presser a while back that they should have known there were character issues in regards to a recent signing but made the mistake to believe that could be remedied in this clubhouse. almost all of those signs point to that signing being lackey who is the ringleader.|
i'm not trying to pile it all on him, beckett is probably just as bad with that tek stuff, but the three pitchers and tek apparently have their noses up in the air and look down upon dudes like salty and buchholz. i love lester, he's easily my favorite red sox, but he needs to get his head out of his ass. i'm not one to believe in the whole TEAM CANCER thing and it only seems to come up at times like this but it kind of makes sense when you think about it.
the other issues are with conditioning. youk is the biggest offender and a lot of people around the clubhouse and baseball as a whole (hell, i heard stuff here in philly about it) say the red sox are one of the worst conditioned teams in the sport. youk being at third is probably making things far worse and in hindsight it would have made sense to trade youk and keep beltre but whatcha gonna do, y'know?
now everything is all sorts of crazy at the moment. people are saying to trade youk to milwaukee when prince leaves, trade beckett to texas so he can have delicious bbq, theo is gonna go to the cubs, and blah blah blah. i hope they don't do anything majorly dramatic but i feel like they're going to have to to appease the boston media and fanbase. i fear that people like acr's character, weei callers, and sports writers are going to pound on the door enough that something dumb like trading lester (since he would get the most on the market) is gonna happen.

|this reminds me of the bill simmons article in that latest issue of espn the magazine. he said one of his friends' kids are obnoxious twerps who live off of and buy memorabilia of every boston championship team and don't wear anything red sox or patriots related because that was "too long ago"|
i wonder if they got some cannons merch.

|alright, i was thinking of this earlier. we have a john lackey problem. it's obvious we can't trade him but what does everyone think would be the best outcome for the situation (for reference i have never disliked a player on one of my own teams more than john lackey, which is truly saying something).|
a) bite the bullet and just keep throwing him out there because he's making too much $$$$$ and perhaps releasing him would awaken his pitching abilities
b) just cut him and pay him not to play for the boston red sox.
c) package him with a b-level type prospect and offer to pay 80-85% of his salary if a team will just take him and pay something. even if it had to go up to 90%.
d) DL him indefinitely and have our very own carlos silva.

|and before anyone says it, signing cj wilson and jose reyes won't fix a damn thing except give the team another hitter to hit at the bottom of the lineup and a pitcher that, while good, probably won't be worth his price tag.|

|Official Boston Red Sox Topic #4: Rays Playoff Preview! (102) | Posted on Sept. 29, 2011, 11:46 a.m.|
|werth would have been a better fit because he could hit 5th or 6th with no problems. his skill set would work and even if he lost the steals he still is more of a power threat than crawford.|
it was just a bad allocation of resources. after it was obvious he couldn't cut it as a #3 hitter his season went down the tubes.
|Official Boston Red Sox Topic #4: Rays Playoff Preview! (101) | Posted on Sept. 29, 2011, 11:44 a.m.|
|to be honest, i wouldn't have minded the crawford deal if we had a legitimate spot in the lineup for him.|
he doesn't like batting leadoff and ellsbury has morphed into a great hitter this year.
he can't hit second because that's pedroia's spot. though pedroia could hit cleanup that's not exactly the best spot to put him in.
crawford started the season hitting third and it was obvious he was too out of sync. he's not a prototypical #3 hitter and he doesn't fit well there. we're not tampa and generally don't have the speed on the basepaths to pull off a double steal (though ellsbury and crawford could do it if needed but i doubt francona called many this year did he?).
so the only spot to put him in is near the bottom of the lineup and that's not fair to the team or to the player. carl crawford may struggle against lefties (badly) but he's not a #7 or whatever hitter. we all knew that the defensive stats would take a bit of a hit because of fenway and a lot of the balls that bounce off the monster would have been flyball outs in tampa or wherever else. his biggest assets are his speed (and after the numerous leg ailments he didn't feel comfortable running), defense (which fenway negates), and ability to bunt for base hits and wreak havoc on the basepaths (which the red sox just don't do a lot of and it's tough to do when kevin youkilis is standing on first half the time).

there are plenty of other forums on the internet that have board specific moderators and they have far bigger bases than gamefaqs in terms of social boards. they can all chip in on the game boards since that's the monster on the site and where the majority of the problems are, but for specific things? the last thing you need is someone like solarpanel-x deleting topics on the wwe board because someone "spoils" that andre the giant is making an appearance on monday night.
