    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    Exactly. If they are taking their color scheme from BAA, which they seem to be, they got it wrong. They use 2 different shades, and that hat doesn't seem to be either.

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    I have a lower spec'd 14" version that I bought a fee months ago and have been really happy with the overall performance and build. My nitpick is that the silver keyboard can be hard to read in certain light. The power button tucked to the left the delete key is an odd placement and exasperated...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    Yeah, seems like a high upside project. He also had pretty drastic MLB home/away split. He was terrible at Comerica. Home: 18.2IP 8.20 ERA 17ER 5HR Away: 10IP 2.70 ERA 3ER 0HR Edit for clarity

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I'm a Beni fan and was rooting for a bounce back, but Cordero does make sense as a Renfroe platoon mate. I think at worst its a lateral move in LF and you gain a solid SP prospect and save some money. They still need a CFer.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I admit I don't know anything about Hernandez, but looking at his BRef I don't see any reason aside from K rate to get excited (if he's involved). What am I missing?

    Apple to Invest $3.6 Billion in Kia to Make the Apple car

    What do you want to bet it will require a proprietary charger?

    Thought the same thing with Cishek. Bad year last year, but solid K rate and apparently still had good velocity. Of the guys on dynomite's list, probably the best upside potential.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    Certainly a useful player from a roster building standpoint but doesn't fill immediate needs. Between Chavis, Arroyo, and Arauz there's pretty good depth at 2b. He does have quite few games in CF the last few years (started 44 game in 2018, only 16 in '19), so if they don't sign a dedicated CF...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    You are missing Martin Perez in the rotation, which is significant but not a huge difference maker. They still need to add at least 1 more SP. I'm in the re-sign JBJ camp. It stabilizes the OF situation and going defensive is a good way to help offset the weak pitching staff. If Duran looks...

    Dustin Pedroia Retrospective

    I recall before his rookie season I got into an argument with a guy on another board who insisted that Pedroia would be a serviceable player, but never the level of Howie Kendrick. It's actually a pretty interesting careers comparison from a strictly numbers standpoint. Both came in the same...

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    Pretty underwhelmed by the Perez signing. Assuming they still need 1 more SP I keep coming back to Taijuan Walker. He's in such a weird position after missing most of 2 seasons then coming back and looking great in his short come back stint last year. Plus he's only 28. I would gamble on him.

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    The problem I see with the incentive deal is that he may need to be on an innings limit, at least for the first couple of months. I wouldn't want him pushing it too hard or getting pissed for getting pulled early in starts.

    Lenovo Ideapad won't turn on

    I would be surprised if the battery isn't removeable, although this may be a thing with newer laptops. A set of precision screwdrivers like this is a good investment. I have a similar set and surprised how often I use them. edit: If you want to try to crack it open and need the screwdrivers...

    Celtics New Alternate Uniform---Yay or Nay?

    Looking around the league at other team's alts, we could do much, much worse. I was just thankful last year with all the "town" jerseys that the Celtics didn't get saddled with "Beantown", because you know somebody had to have floated it.

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    500TB! I can fit the whole internet on this thing! Seriously, this is an interesting, albeit weird, option. Is Lenovo actually still manufacturing laptops with an optical drive, VGA out, and a 4-1 card reader? They must be rebuilding using old lease laptops or something right? Also thanks...

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    When did Chromebooks become so expensive? Is this a demand issue due to Covid? My daughter has a Chromebook I purchased last year for homework, but its only an 11" with 4gb RAM, which had been fine for homework and basic internets, but really struggles with Zoom. Our school district will be...
