    Teaching A Kid To Throw And Catch From Scratch - help?

    NESN - Is That All There Is?

    Would there be rights issues showing the games? Infomercials might pay better if they have to pony up to MLB for express written consent. Would they have to pay broadcasters for the rights to use their voices?

    NESN's new Red Sox Prospects show

    I only caught the tail end. Would Dombrowski have signed him for the Tigers? Yount's stint was during Dombrowski's first year with them.

    Protecting the Shields -- The Nick Cafardo Thread

    Kapstein was let go.  Nick seemed a little melancholy about it.  On the plus side, Kapstein's resume/obituary is practically written.

    Is it worth getting an iPhone 6 now?

    Are you sure you have to pay for the battery replacement? I took mine to the Apple store and had mine replaced for free. I think the guy said there was an issue with batteries in the iPhone 5.
