    Please Help with Subwoofer Hookup....It's Driving ME NUTS!!!!!

    I just bought an older Boston Acoustics VR-500 sub...it didn't come with a manual. It is a powered sub. On the back it has the speaker wire hookup which I would rather avoid using. It also has FOUR RCA inputs/Outputs that says 'Line Level' over the section where they are. There is 1 set of red...

    Dogs fighting - please help

    Sounds like you are on the right track. I have 2 dogs myself and one is VERY dominant and the other is EXTREMELY submissive. Whenever we play it is always separate from each other too. It isn't uncommon to do this. I thought it was at first but after talking to many people, most of them do the...

    Dogs fighting - please help

    I am sorry that you are put in this position....it is certainly not an easy thing. 2 female dogs are not an easy thing. Both of these dogs are thinking that they are the alpha of the 2. When a bone or toy is in the picture....generaly the alpha takes it and the other dog can take it when...

    Floating floor installation questions

    I install floors. Pergo is junk. The brand you are looking at is much better. One advantage that a Laminate has over wood is that it is not as easy to scratch. The advantage of wood is.......it is wood. If given the choice I would take wood ANYDAY over a laminate. Laminates look fake and do not...

    Actually.......yeah they did. Take a look at all of their stats when you get a minute or two. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/Statis...getype=batting All of them had very good if not great seasons. Yep....they did have Mauer in the lineup......name me a few other players that they had...

    Jeter had a great season....can't argue that...as much as it pains me to say that ;). A lot of people put a bit too much stock in RBI's and HR's. If you look at all of Jeter's numbers such as hits, Runs, OBP, batting average with 2 outs, BA with runners in scoring position, BA with 2 outs and...

    Funny you mention the steroids issue. Greg Anderson (Barry Bonds' trainer just got sent back to jail today for refusing to testify to a grand jury. There is also a bit of a rumor to circulate in Florida. Supposedly Dontrelle Willis may become available. The Marlins said they would spend a bit...

    I really think the whole money arguement is a very silly one. People are quick to say the Yanks spend a ton of money. I have no idea why since it is allowed. Sure it can be a bit unfair since they obviously have much more resourses then say.....Kansas City. I say, let them spend all the money...

    Could of fooled me, you're the one that said that people should look at it differently and that the Red Sox were the only ones that were smart enough to make such a high bid. Also, I didn't put words in your mouth, but directly responded to what you wrote and stated about the reasoning behind...

    I agree wholheartedly with your second paragraph Robert but I must take exception with the first one. You have accused others on this thread for putting words in your mouth when you never said something.....but then you do the same to me....talk about the pot calling the kettle black ;). When in...

    I understand most of this Evil Empire debate is tongue in cheek but I'll shed my .02..... It is hard for any Red Sox fan (myself included) to talk about how the Yankees spend a ton of money. The thing about the Evil Empire thing though came from that moron Lucchino. He mentioned it because...

    sorry about that Mike....didn't mean to re-open and battle wounds LOL ;)!! I found out something that I thought was interesting. If the Sox want to they can actually trade the rights to negotiate with Matsuzaka. The Yankees did this with Irabu. San Diego won his rights but Irabu refused to play...

    I like that people are getting excited about players from across the seas.....but let's put things in a bit of perspective before we start annointing players the ace of a staff or someone to replace Ramirez. It is very much talked about that the Japanese league is a slight notch "better" than...

    I agree that it is a ton of money.....a bit too much but what do I care...it's not my cash LOL! The money doesn't count towards the cap either. I think John Henry obviously looks at this as a huge investment and one that I am sure will pay off quite nicely in the long run financially as now the...

    There is rumor going on that the Red Sox have wone the bidding sweepstakes for Matsuzaka. This is being reported on espn.com. The bid could be for OVER 40 MILLION$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Taken from ESPN classic biography...... "Koufax had one more magnificent season left in his arthritic arm. After staging a holdout with Don Drysdale, Koufax signed for $125,000 and won his third Cy Young -- with a 27-9 record and 1.73 ERA - despite the intense pain in his left elbow...

    Phillies are said to br VERY interested in Soriano and may be looking at signing hime for a six year deal at about 17.5$ million per!! The only hangup is language. Soriano wants a COMPLETE no trade written in and the Phillies do not do that anymore.....they are willing to do a partial no trade...

    Another interesting tidbit on the whole pitchers now and then thing.... It took Clemens 23 seasons to pitch 118 complete games. Heck, for a pitcher nowadays to have anywhere near 100 complete games is a big deal as we all know. oh yeah......In Sandy Koufax's LAST 6 seasons he got 115...

    Foulke also holds a player option for around 3.75 million and the team has a buyout for 1.5 million....which basically says that if he opts for the option he also gets the buyout which brings his salary to about 5.25 million$. He will never get that on the open market for one season so do not be...

    Yep.......but look again.....he has about 70 starts where he pitched over 130 pitches. Sorry, but that will never happen again. Look through all of the archives and averages you want but the site you are referring to is basicaly proving our point that pitchers then simply pitched more during...

    MLB Hot Stove League 2006-2007

    Good point Robert. A lot of people are very quick to forget that not so long ago people used to actually pitch complete games (GASP!!) pretty regularly. Most pitchers onlt start 32 games if healthy and are basically "good" for seven innings now. Other than the Quarterback position (and...

    The whole bidding thing just seems a bit "sneaky" to me. Supposedly a teams bid and Seibu can accept any bid they want to. They "supposedly" do not know who the bid is from when they receive it and just look at the money. Supposedly all of the teams bidding are and the amount is secretive. That...

    Well said Jason. I would actually be a bit surprised if he does not retire. Being a big Boston fan....like a few others here.... the one thing that comes to mind when I think of Pedro is 'Pride'. The guy has soooo much pride that if he does not feel like he can adequately return then he will...

    Not to add to the Japanese player debate but the Red Sox and Phillies are said to be very interested Akinori Iwamura. He is a 3rd baseman with a ton of power. Last year he hit around .300 with 32 HR and about 80RBI's. A few years ago he hit over 40 HR's. He is a lefty and is said to play 2nd and...

    I am trying to find the link but I read that Zito has said that he is veryinterested in coming to the NYY. I am sure part of this is because NY is known for overspending. As for comparing Irabu and Nomo. Nomo had a solid career in the majors. I think Irabu was so over-hyped that it put way...

    MLB Hot Stove League 2006-2007

    Oh yeah, as for Zito.......you can all have him. He is the most over-rated pitcher in MLB right now. The guy chokes in the playoffs and has an AWFUL record against the AL East (I am a HUGE Sox fan). Personally I HOPE the Yanks sign him. If he was smart he would stay out of NY and go to a...

    pam interested in seeing where Matsuka does wind up. He has very nassty stuff. I would think that the Yankees are going to do what they can to get him. Boston will not be interested. They do not deal well with Boras and they are looking at cutting back a bit on payroll. Yes the posting money...

    "No way Maddux or Glavine come back to Atlanta this year. The Braves' rotation is stacked/crowded enough with Smoltz, Hudson, James, Ramirez, and Davies." I agree but it has been rumored so it is worth mentioning. They are both FA's next year. Supposedly a conversation took place between the...

    "WTF? The 2007 Braves: The Old Geezers Tour." LOL!! Tell me about it. Supposedly they have talked about this (Glavine and Maddux) and would like to finish up their careers with Smoltz in Atlanta and give it one more shot. I thought it sounded a bit odd myself. There are a few obstacles in the...
