    New WiFi router or Mesh network

    I will be moving to a new home that has Xfinity as its provider. I'm going to sign up for the 1000 MBPS service. I have the option of paying $14 a month for their modem/router combo or bringing my own. I'm guessing I can do much better than what they provide (I'm in seacoast NH). What...

    Farrell or . . . . ? You tell us!

    A key point in the 4th game of the ALDS yesterday was when Farrell go booted, making DiSarcina the in-game manager. His decision to trot Sale out for a fifth inning of work was poor. It forced him to bring Kimbrel in mid-inning. I believe that Farrell would have brought Kimbrel in to start the...

    Red Sox to expand netting behind home plate

    Everyone has an opinion. If the experience you pay good money for is adversely affected by a change then your opinion of that change matters. Otherwise it does not.

    Red Sox to expand netting behind home plate

    How long have YOU been a season ticket holder, Corsi? If the change doesn't affect you then your opinion has no value.

    Wireless Printer

    Couperin, I bought that exact printer about a year ago on your recommendation. Thanks! What is your experience with the non-Canon ink replacements? Is there anything I should watch out for when selecting a 3rd party ink replacement?

    Internal hard drive replacement recommendations, please

    The hard drive in my wife's Dell 660 Inspiron desktop shit the bed. It's (was?) a 2000GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM with 64MB cache and a 6.0GB/s transfer rate. I hooked it up to a universal drive adapter and plugged it into the USB port on my laptop which failed to recognize it. I expect that...

    Will Red Sox-Yankees ever be the same?

    It was the 2004 ALCS that threw a bucket of cold water on the red hot intensity of the rivalry, not the World Series win. After coming back from being down no games to three and sweeping the Yankees, all Sox fans were given the ultimate gift: a way to forever silence obnoxious, vocal, taunting...

    Should the DH be implemented in both leagues?

    During inter league play, MLB should allow each team to decide whether to use the DH or not. <br /> <br /> If their team chooses to have pitchers hit, NL fans will see their teams lose most of their home inter league games. <br /> <br /> IIf their team chooses to use a DH, NL fans will see...

    Spring training news thread

    Great quote about AJP in the article above:<br /> <br /> While playing for the Red Sox last year, the veteran catcher was ejected from a game when he turned to rookie umpire Quinn Wolcott and said, "Give me a ball, a new ball -- one you can see."<br /> <br /> <br />
