    Sox Extend Barnes; 2 years, $18.75 M

    He should still be on the roster over Hernandez. At least there’s the upside of him finding his form which the former has never done.

    Who's on Third? I don't know

    Implying Sandoval won't hog all of the spread for himself.

    Who's on Third? I don't know

    There is no argument for not releasing Sandoval.

    2016 MacBook Pro question

    You'd be better off buying the $1800 model with the new touchscreen keyboard row thing than upgrading the processor in the base model. That model has 28W TDP chips rather than the ULW 15W chips in the $1500 entry level model. It also has faster RAM.

    Benintendi talk

    I imagine they also want to hold the short side platoon role open for Young when he gets back rather than establishing Benintendi as an everyday player and then demoting him to a platoon role when CY returns.

    If you're using Maxthon as a browser....don't

    I mainly use Safari, but recently swapped my secondary/Flash playing browser from Chrome to Vivaldi. I've actually been quite impressed with the latter.

    Computer glasses for blue light and glare

    You can set it either to an automatic schedule in settings or you can manually activate it until sunrise via the control center. I think f.lux had some more features than the built-in Night Shift feature has, but the latter should suffice for 99% of people. I was quite disappointed to see Apple...

    Wireless Router Question

    I actually use an AirPort Extreme as well and I love it. I got it about 3 years ago (when the AC model was new) to replace my old one, which was the first generation with N and had lasted between 5 and 6 years (and still worked reasonably well, but lacked IIRC the ability to simultaneously...

    Wireless Router Question

    I don't believe this is true. My understanding is that the multiple Airports function as a traditional range extender when you connect them all wirelessly rather than via ethernet (or ethernet via power line adaptors etc). But I could be wrong. And that Xiaomi router sounds sketchy as fuck.

    The save statistic is simplistic and stupid

    This will be even better when Kimbrel pitches in an 8-2 game on Tuesday "to get some work in".

    The MLB Draft

    Ball was even considered a bit of a stretch when the Sox grabbed him, which people seem to be forgetting. This is a kid that was a consensus top 10 pick.

    Wireless Router Question

    I don't know if anyone here has personal experience with it, but if I were buying new wifi equipment I'd be very tempted to go with one of the new mesh network setups like https://eero.com or https://getluma.com The technology seems really awesome for covering a whole house without resorting to...

    Xander and Mookie in 2016

    Not necessarily. If he's better in RF by an amount that is larger than the difference in the position adjustment, then his WAR could be higher as an RF. In theory the position adjustment is supposed to be about the average difference in defensive value between a defender of similar ability at...
