    Has Anyone Ever Used ProtonMail?

    I’m trying to take seriously internet security and privacy more lately to keep up with best practices and remove that worry and hassle from my life, which means de-Googleizing my life a bit. When researching more secure email platforms, ProtonMail came across as the best, but I’m wondering if...

    Jackie Bradley, Jr. - Help

    The title was originally "Jackie Bradley Jr: Trouble with the Curve" but I couldn't quote a terrible move so...   Using the same Tim Britton piece as I did to start the Bogaerts thread, I noticed the team had a worse observation on Bradley so far.  While Bogaerts was merely cheating on outside...

    The 2014 Red Sox and Situational Hitting

    To the eye, the 2014 Red Sox seem bad at situational hitting.  In the Second Guessers thread for the Texas series, Kiekeredinthehead mentioned that the Sox failed at 2 more hit and runs.  From a purely observational stand point, it seems like this year's team is bad at executing plays like hit...

    Koji 2014: Great or Historically Great (Again)?

    2014 Pittsburgh Pirates: Walker-ring Off the Plank

    After last year's breakout season, the big question surrounding Huntington's Pirates was whether they could repeat their 2013 season.
