For the second night in a row, this Fan's first-ever bout with insomnia ever is getting really...well...tiresome. It's truly amazing the things you think about when prone in a bed for hours attempting to find that magic solution to falling asleep.

Depending on your perspective, Hawkins has either terrible or fantastic timing. If he hoped to make a splash by signing with the Angels—well, he’d have had to have been delusional, for one thing, since he’s, you know, LaTroy Hawkins. Hawkins himself tweeted yesterday that he’s “Been riding stealth...

By now, you have undoubtedly heard that the St. Louis Cardinals lost Albert Pujols to the Los Angeles Angels. If that is news to you, then you haven’t been paying close attention – to anything. Now, the defending World Series champions need to find a replacement for their franchise leader over the past 11 seasons, but could it actually be easier than many people...
