    Psst..... Razor, I got what you need. How about some OBP, and some SLG?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    This is kinda like me with my kids. "shut off the TV's and computers and get outside!"

    Actually I like the idea. Maybe just leave ONE thread open for all star game discussions.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    And thus endeth my four day self imposed exile. I did watch the ASG, got a bunch of work done, read two books by Jim Butcher. I loves me some Dresden Files. Worked a puzzle with my daughter. completed one fantasy baseball trade.

    It isn't a bad thing to step away once and a while. but i have a bunch to catch up on.

    I once took a five day break from the internet and my cell phone all together. I highly recommend something like that to anyone who can afford to. Those 5 days were tough at first, but it really cleared my head and made me much more productive after that.

    I went on a 72-hour retreat about ten years ago where no phones, clocks, watches, radios, Internet, newspapers...no contact with the outside world...was allowed. It was amazing that, returning to the "real" world after only 72 hours, all those things seemed like such noise.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Me too, and I hsve no idea how I survived. In fact, now, when I can't find the remote for my TiVo, I have a panic attack, and can't function until I find it.

    That's why going a few days with technology was a godsend. It gave me my perspective back.

    I had my cable shut off about 10 months ago. Haven't really missed it too much.

    I read 3 books in the last two weeks. Reading a Dresden files book now and I might start on the Catcher was a Spy soon. Plus another season of softball twice a week.
