    Apple rumored to stop using Intel chips by 2020

    I use a case mostly for the tactile feel, less to protect from drops than preventing a drop.

    Apple rumored to stop using Intel chips by 2020

    The iPhones of color are cool, until you have to throw a case on them. On the new Apple TV, I have a third generation Apple TV from 2013 connected to a 10+-year-old Sony Bravia, which is operating fine so I have no reason to upgrade the TV. Because my TV isn't 4K capable, is there any reason to...

    iPhone 12

    Depending on when you bought it, Apple (and Verizon and AT&T) has a 14-day return policy. Link.

    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    I love the fact they that are (currently) playing highly competitive baseball, and they've been really fun to watch. But in terms of acquiring someone like Rizzo this summer, I would hate to be in that in-between stage of "maybe good enough to go for it" at the trade deadline. I wouldn't want to...

    ERod Scratched from Opening Day Start Per ESPN

    Hopefully this is nothing, but more typically dead arm shows up earlier in March, and pitchers recover without missing a regular season start in April. Again hopefully this is only unfortunate timing.

    Red Sox 2021 Season Predictions

    Those predicting an upper-80s and 90-win team, so you think we're a mid-90s team if we had Chris Sale for the full season? (Or I'm reading too much into the natural pre-season optimism?) I would be pleased with anything approaching mid-80s and enjoyable games.

    Spring Training Games

    So many people say these in-game interviews are so cool and needed to re-energize broadcasts. But when it's a player not on your team, it's friggin stupid and distracting.

    Spring Training 2021

    Has anyone seen a TV schedule of Red Sox' spring training games? I can't find it on redsox.com or NESN (unless I'm completely missing it).

    Jarren Duran

    Fawning profile of Duran by Peter Gammons in The Athletic (paywall), "Jarren Duran could be the firestarter for next generation of Red Sox."

    Fernando Tatis Jr. signs 14 year, 340M extension

    No one knows Tatis' medicals like the Padres do, so you have to give them the benefit of the doubt that they did their due diligence and went into this with eyes wide open. Impressive offseason and a heck of a window that's just opening for the team.

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    Gammons has a piece in The Athletic today on David Price. It includes a line that I thought was surprising and didn't know if it was foreshadowing something or was just Gammons being Gammons. The Dodgers' payroll mushroomed to $254 million after the Trevor Bauer and Justin Turner signings, so...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    Doesn't it feel like we're done though, absent a trade? After the AO trade, we're $10 million from the luxury tax, and it doesn't make sense to go over now when 2021 isn't a likely playoff year. That's also the squeeze on JBJ returning -- again absent a trade and subtraction of an existing salary.

    Renfroe to Sox 1y/3.1M

    Like it. Also should defuse Duran speculation and allow him time to develop/marinate before rushing him.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    I think this is exactly right re: qualifying offer. Signing a free agent that would cost a pick goes against everything Chaim has been telegraphing, doubly so for 2021 because of where Boston will be picking in the draft.

    Jays planning to demolish Rogers Centre, build new stadium in its place

    Wonder also how this could affect Toronto's ability to attract free agents this winter. In the best-case scenario for vaccine distribution, it's conceivable that most or potentially all Blue Jays' home games in 2021 would be played in Toronto. But if Rogers Centre is being torn down and rebuilt...

    Theo Epstein steps down as Cubs' Head of Baseball Ops

    One of Theo's lifelong friends, Sam Kennedy, who happens to be the current Red Sox president and CEO, might mildly object to this.

    iPhone 12

    I have the Pacific Blue, and I really like it. But note it's very dark (even darker than a traditional Navy blue), and the Apple logo on the back is even darker (on the Pro). In some light, it actually looks like it could be graphite or even black. My recommendation would be get it. I don't...
