Joe Giradi? other?

  • If the Red Sox don't extend Mookie Betts, their center fielder, should the Cubs try and go after him?

    He'll be 28 when he's a free agent, and one of the best out fielders in the game. a solid lead off hitter and great defender. assuming Heyward is still in RF, and Schwarber in left, unless Almora gets a lot better, they should go after Betts for a true lead off hitter. The cubs will have a full year of their new TV deal already running,... show more

  • Is the NFL going to reset the rookie contract scale at some point?

    It goes up each year, with 1st overall picks now getting guaranteed contracts in the $30 million range. are they going to do something to keep it from going higher? otherwise, it'll get up to the point where sam bradford and matt ryan got for their rookie contracts, which is why the new contract structure was put in place.

    I've been using pandora for a couple years, mainly because it's only $5 / month and i stream the music either online or offline. i don't need to download physical songs to my devices to create playlists. does apple music have offline capabilities? does it have a radio like service where you can select artists, songs, or genres, and it'll play similar songs from that group? are you able to like or dislike songs to be heard or not heard again? can you limit between live recordings or studio recordings? only reason why i would switch to apple music is because all my portable devices are apple. iphone, apple watch, and i got airpods last winter holiday. pandora usually works fine, but i wonder if apple music would provide a better experience for just a little bit more.

I would also like one with a built in CD drive too. as I do have some I use on my laptop too. i don't need it to be a blu-ray drive, as i have a separate blu-ray player. Also, i would like a setup to have two, maybe three monitors as well. so i would like good monitors, maybe no more than $200 each if possible, and around 24". i don't need anything huge for monitors. but just nice HD viewing and high refresh rate. is it possible to get multiple monitors connected via HDMI? or does it have to be HDMI, VGA or other cable mix? I would probably get a pre built PC, as I don't know a lot of the separate parts to build it my self.

You have to think they are 30 or 40 years old at least. and even if they have kids and grand kids, that should help set them up for life with education at least. so maybe start out at $450 million, what would you do with all that money? would you still work your job? work for free and do your own entrepreneurship activities? buy an island and retire forever? write a book or two? run for office?

    Which stores? Amazon, best buy, newegg, other stores? do you always buy online? my laptop is pushing seven years old. though it still runs fine, i wouldn't mind replacing it with something newer before it breaks down, then just use this one as a backup. i like the portability of a laptop, though i don't really travel that much except for family trips, and even then those aren't much. i don't much much skills to build a PC from scratch, so I would get a pre built desktop if I went that route. i do my gaming on console, so i wouldn't need one with high specs. but i watch a lot of media on my laptop on iTunes and other services, and run a lot of apps together, so would need specs to run it smoothly and fast. i would also like to be able to have two if not three monitors. so if i got a laptop, i would need a docking station for that scenario. i'm working full time, so it's not like i need a laptop for school either. these are more just thoughts and rants at this point. thanks for the help.
