    2023 World Baseball Classic

    These WBC crowds are a lot easier on the eyes than your average baseball fans. I'm disappointed I missed the Venezuela vs Puerto Rico game.

    2023 World Baseball Classic

    That garbage slight separation from the bag replay needs to go. It's not in the spirit of the game at all.

    Windows 11, Why and Why Not

    Microsoft has been promising smaller update files with Windows 11, so those would download quicker on your slow internet connection. But that and the nice Windows 11 features like the cleaned up File Explorer and Settings menus are not a compelling reason to upgrade now. You could do that when...

    Edwin Diaz out for the season

    Miggy better watch out. The Tigers might send some goons to Nancy Kerrigan him and collect the insurance.

    Tech Bargain Thread: Post Your Deals Here!

    My wife has also filled up the storage on her phone a couple times with pictures, but that's because she takes 10 of everything to share the best one and never deletes the other 9. Running out of space forced her into some cleanup that would have seemed like an insurmountable task if it were an...

    Fenway for the first time in a long time

    They must have fixed it this afternoon. When I looked earlier, the toggle between Section and Seat Map was missing. It's now there underneath the max price slider.

    Fenway for the first time in a long time

    That was an option last year. You're right, the option to see available individual seats is missing now.

    Fenway for the first time in a long time

    Try to find the first row of the grandstand. That's the best combo of price, view, and legroom in the park. The last row of the Pavilion Box seats are good, too. You're way up high and have your own bar stool and table.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Wait until you find out what they charge to see the team in person. That $300 million they gave to Devers has to come from somewhere.

    2023 Yankees Spring Training News & Notes

    They were going to be under the threshold, but Bauer was reinstated and his salary is back on the books.

    2023 Yankees Spring Training News & Notes

    Even the mildest oblique injuries seem to last 6 weeks. It's really hard to throw a ball or swing a bat if your side hurts. If they have to replace him, I hear Brett Gardner is still available.

    Let's Predict the 2023 Red Sox Season

    He may also be the only ERA qualifier, earning him the best on the team award by default.

    Baseball Is Broken (on the field, proposed rule changes, attendance, etc.)

    If you like the high strikeout, low contact game as it is now, then you wouldn't think limiting pitchers is better for the game in general. I prefer a game where hitters have a better chance of getting a hit than striking out. Putting rules in place that force teams to use starters for more...

    Baseball Is Broken (on the field, proposed rule changes, attendance, etc.)

    The whole idea is that pitchers who have any sense of self preservation will no longer throw as hard as they possibly can. MLB tried to decrease pitcher injuries by increasing roster sizes, but that didn't work at all. Pitchers just throw harder than ever for shorter outings and all blow out...

    Philly Inquirer: Field of Dread

    Gary Carter played in Montreal and died of a brain tumor. As did Dick Howser who managed the Royals when they had artificial turf. I don't know if there's a control group of baseball players who had brain tumors who never played their home games on turf in the 70s and 80s.

    2023 World Baseball Classic

    Are we sure they're even on site? It may be that they're calling the games remote and didn't have a very good look at anything on the TV feeds they were working with. There were a lot of confused calls during the pandemic.

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    There are Bluetooth transmitters that accept an optical connection from the TV. If the speakers are connected to a receiver that can connect to a Bluetooth source, that would be a simple solution. You're less likely to have interference with that, but more likely to experience lag.
