    Bill Fitch has passed away

    Thousand points of light. Anyone ever deal with LED reflector issue on an LG TV?

    Where's that video? MLB's new Multimedia search

    Saw a tweet from Gordon Edes about MLB's new video search tool. You want to find Nomar videos? Search for him. Are you really enamored by catcher's interference?

    Eck signs deal w/NESN to do 85 games per year.

    I didn’t want to resurrect a long dormant NESN broadcast thread and didn’t see this anywhere. Sounds like he’s happy, it allows Remy to take on a smaller role assuming he’s coming back and it leaves less possible games for Lyons. Eck: I'm excited to announce my expanded role with @nesn. I...

    Help me outfit my new room.

    We’re currently doing some home renovations that will be opening up a 13’x24’ space for a TV room. I am starting from scratch since I will be leaving my current TV and ancient receiver/speakers in the family room that my kids took over a while ago through some manifest destiny move. The current...
