The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros had themselves a ridiculous, possibly juiced-baseball-enhanced, slugfest in Game Five of the World Series on Sunday night, which really messed with my sleep patterns and made for a very entertaining set of highlights.  In between the Crawford Box homers that are just popups Continue reading Cubs and Baseball Thinks Since the Last Time We Blogged
