    Getting Wifi for my apartment

    So I'm moving out in a really short time frame and I want to find out how I can get my new place hooked up with wifi. I've never had to do anything like this before so any advice, such as how to check for the best company in my area for wifi, to how to make sure I'm not screwed on pricing...

    Sox send Miley to Seattle for Smith (RP) and Elias (SP)

    Sources: #Mariners talking to #RedSox about trade for starting pitcher. Target is Buchholz or Miley, not clear. Per Rosenthal, the M's are looking at acquiring Clay or Wade Miley from the Sox. I'm more interested in what the Sox would be looking to get back from the M's in any deal. .

    So I'm having a bunch of issues with my shitty internet.    It's dropping quite a bit, giving me a bunch of "resolving host" issue.   I've changed my DNS servers to Google's which helped significantly and I've optimized the wifi channel my router uses, but it hasn't cleared up the issue, I'm...

    No DNS server?

    So my Airport Express is blinking Amber and when I went to check the error, that's what's showing up. I tried factory resetting the thing but that didn't solve the issue. Not really sure what to do from here, can someone explain how to solve the error in simple terms?

    Let's discuss Papi's HoF chances

    We've always known that he's a borderline candidate, so I'm wondering if getting to that nice round number pushes him over the top. The rest of his numbers still look borderline, but between his PS history and getting to 500 HRs, I still think he's gets voted into the HOF.

    Let's talk about trading Hanley & Pablo

    Matthew Kory wrote a post over on Fangraphs about what it would like if the Sox traded both players   On value to other teams:     On whether it's still a good idea:     Overall, I tend to agree. I think dumping the contracts now, is going to look like a mistake. We're not even a full season in...

    What should the Sox do with Swihart when Hanigan returns?

    So Hanigan return is approaching quickly, as the season continues to get closer to another lost year.    Swihart is posting a 53 wRC+ created, and a .562 OPS. Bad numbers, but he's been slightly better in June posting a .641 OPS & a wRC+ of 77. So has he shown enough on offense AND defense...
