re: Any recent experience with Dell XPS laptops? - Hopeful Doc
Just bought a 13” for the office. Have a 15” from 17 or so. I have no experience with the 17” Build quality remains high. Most comparable would be an Apple MacBook Air or MS Surface Laptop. They moved to soldered RAM in the last iteration update throughout the lineup if I remember correctly, so...

re: About Cam Johnson: - Hopeful Doc
[quote]Just read this part of your post. That's interesting. I was just going by what my eyes saw, but I'd love to see those stats you mention here. You could tell his fastball had run, but I didn't know it was quantified as comparable to a slider. That thing really is filthy. [/quote] [link=(ht...

[quote]No such thing.[/quote] I forget how poorly words come across in black and white. My intention was to convey that he’s struggling to locate because it’s getting away from him, not that he needs to intentionally “throw flat” or that movement was a bad thing. I actually only got to...

[quote]He's still the same pitcher as last year. He was never that good. his era was almost 6 last year. people here think hes really good[/quote] Once through the lineup, he’s consistently an above average pitcher. Beyond that, he’s usually been more “miss” than “hit,” but he came through ...

re: Esteemed doctors of the OT - Hopeful Doc
