    Didn’t see a thread about this, which probably reflects how exciting a refresh it is. Anyway, got mine on Friday and unbeknownst to me it has some newfangled feature where it senses if you’re in a “severe crash” and automatically calls 911. So I have mine in a bag with a bunch of towels on a...

    Rays Offseason 2021-2022

    The last week kind of feels like the Lightning crashing out of the playoffs in the first round in 2019. Tremendous regular season team, crashed and burned in the playoffs. A fatal flaw exposed. Disappointment abounds. Small-time performances scattered across the lineup. Tonight, the Lightning...

    2021 Rays: Wandervision

    Randy was Mr October, Wander is waiting in the wings, they sold high on Snell...but they made a very uncharacteristic front-office error in handling Morton’s option. They thought they could leverage him living in Tampa and being super comfortable with the Rays situation to squeeze him for a few...

    BEAT L.A. (The Gamethread)

    Screw Soxhop and his loser poll. We need a poll to tell us everyone thinks the mighty Dodgers are going to win the WS? Just like the mighty Yankees were going to roll through the AL East? Just like the re-awakened 4 ALCS in a row juggernaut Astros were going to finish off an almost historic...

    World Series Game 2: New Land Speed Record?

    Dodgers took care of business last night in the quickest WS game since 1992. Couple big bombs, Kershaw cruised, Kenley closed, no sweat. Well, lots of sweat. It will be 95 degrees at first pitch tonight. Verlander vs Hill. The Dodger juggernaut rolls on.

    World Series Game 1: It's Getting Hot in Here

    The World Series should have a proper game thread, not some catch-all soxhop poll thread posted 2 nanoseconds after the ALDS ended. Dodgers rolling through the postseason powered by the genius of Andrew Friedman and the likability of Yasiel Puig meet an Astros team fresh off an emotional Game 7...

    2016 Rays: Havana Daydreamin'

    118 years after Teddy Roosevelt gathered his Rough Riders in Tampa to sail towards glory on Cuban shores, another band of scrappy, underpaid young men prepare to depart the city for Havana to begin their campaign for glory. Hopefully they will avoid the mismanagement and significant disabled...

    2015 Rays: Straight Cash, Loney

    4 starting pitchers on the DL (Cobb, Moore, Odorizzi, Colome). Closer on the DL (McGee). Franklin, Jaso, Loney on the DL. Maddon in Wrigley, Friedman in Chavez Ravine. The new manager was a bullpen coach last year. They're going to start using more light blue in the uniforms, though, so that's...

    2014/2015 Rays Off-Season

    So…slightly hectic few weeks in the bowels of the Trop.     The 2014 Rays had very good starting pitching. 22 shutouts on the season, most in the AL since the start of the DH. The bullpen was a dumpster fire to start the season and stabilized towards the end as McGee and Boxberger settled into...

    Extending Wifi Range

    I just moved into a house where the wifi that originates from a modem/router in the kitchen on an upper level doesn't reach my home office on a lower level. There is also an xbox and an apple TV on that lower level, so I'd like to have pretty good signal.   I'm trying to decide between:   Option...
