Cinco de Bypass – Guest Blogger, Andi Berger

“Cinco de Bypass”. Ever heard of it? “Triple bypass”…yes. “Quadruple bypass”…absolutely.

Greg’s Baseball Bookcase

On Sunday we wrote about the book that I wasn’t writing but wrote anyway. Then, a couple of hours after it posted I got this link from Gregg Kersey, who writes a blog reviewing baseball books cleverly enough called “Gregg’s Baseball Bookcase.” After reading his review, I’m glad I decided...
