    Red Sox sign Mitch Moreland

    Sale may have been in their sights, but he wasn't in their rotation - at least not yet. Are you saying they should have assumed that they would complete a trade that didn't happen mid-season, and that the Nationals were the front-runners on right up to the last minute? I would be pissed if they...

    Major SOSH Upgrade, November 2015

    May I too be given the keys to that divine kingdom which is P&G? It's as close as I'm ever going to get to heaven, which speaks volumes of how far I've fallen.

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    Problem solved, and the build is complete other than some cable management and installing the OS. The build took longer than I thought and was not without some angst, but Zach and I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you so much for all your help; it really made it way less stressful attempting this build...

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    Thanks for the help, Couper. I am doing an external build. And I am an idiot for not hooking up the 8 pin cpu connector. That's my noob showing. I still remain concerned about the force required to lock down the CPU, and I'm also wondering if I might be better off getting some Arctic Silver 5...

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    So it's build time! Zach and I decided on the following components (Essentially SumnerH's build above);   CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor Mobo: ASRock H97M PRO4 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Crucial MX100 128GB...

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    I just saw this case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 RED LED Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case It's the same price as the 200R, but has more curb appeal to a 16 yo.  Is this a good alternative or would I be giving up something major?

    Awesome; I'm so looking forward to this. I'll fill you in as we get started (and undoubtedly be back with alarmingly stupid questions.).

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    Guys, thanks for all the input. Am I to understand from the conversation that it's unrealistic to build a box for $500 that's truly upgradable? If so, are the places to splurge so we can upgrade primarily the mobo and the chipset?

    Computer build questions - uh oh

    My son Zach just turned 16 and I'm thinking that it would be a cool father/son project to build a desktop together. My ulterior motive is to have him learn a practical skill set that at worst will make him more self-sufficient, perhaps develop into a hobby that he's passionate about, and...

    Your Red Sox Blind Spot

    I'm a little surprised that noone has mentioned our namesake, Sam Horn. He came up midyear in '87 and was a revelation - OPS+ of 143, slugging consistently over .600 until the last week of the season, 14 HRs in about 150 ABs. This was the guy who was going to make George Scott look like George...

    New Britain Rock Cats Moving To Connecticut's Armpit

      As a resident of Bristol, I am outraged by this statement while at the same time reluctantly forced to acknowledge its truth.
