    Be on the Alert

    Although this is not Sox related, I'm taking the liberty to post here because the incident occurred on this site. If you see the message at the top of the page '(You have 2 new messages)', I caution you not to click on to it. Otherwise a message appears that your computer is at risk and you should call a certain telephone number. The problem then occurs that your screen is frozen and you can't 'cancel' the message nor can you 'X' out of the page. I've found that the only way out is to shut down your computer totally, wait a few minutes and then restart the computer. Totally a pain in the arse.

    I'd like to hear if others have experienced the same or similar problem regarding this issue.

    Thanks. I also have that message, but I have not clicked on it.

    You should add this to this thread: http://www.talksox.com/forum/threads/16140-Site-issues

    Maybe YZ could disable that add that's on the top of the site? I've noticed that add as well.

    Actually, it should be copied to every thread on the forum until the issue is resolved.

    I've gotten similar messages on other sites; one thing you can do is a CTRL-ATL-Delete to open the task manager and kill your browser application. That often gets rid of the page short of shutting down your computer.

    I use an ad blocker and do not have this problem.
    If history tells us anything, the path to redeption for any bad baseball team is marked with a deep rotation of durable starters, a world class defense in both infield and outfield, a lineup that can generate runs in more than one way, a bullpen that won't steal defeat from the jaws of victory, and a top end catcher to hold the whole package together. These are the conditions by which victory is achieved, anything that does not accomplish these objectives is a waste of resources.
