Push The Point #31: The Nepotism Train

October 22nd, 2019

The offseason action keeps heating up, as this week saw even more big time trades, signings and drops! On Episode 31, we recap all of this week’s big player moves, including rOar being traded to the Washington Justice, Meko parting ways with NYXL, and Houston’s recent swath of signings. We also discuss the recent player releases around the league, including Ripa, rCk, and others, and theorize where their careers may go next. From here, we talk about recent re-signings of several key players, and their greater impact on their teams going into Season 3. We talk about the team directions certain franchises are pursuing and think about where we see them going next.

Next, we discuss recent rumours surrounding the London Spitfire potentially trading star players Profit and Gesture to the Seoul Dynasty. We discuss the gravity of trading some of the world’s best players, and what this could mean for London’s direction in Season 3. We also discuss what a Seoul Dynasty super team might look like, and talk about the city’s advantage as a home destination for much of the Korean Pro-player pool. Lastly, we discuss some potential moves that London might make as a result of the trade, and some other potential moves for other league teams.
