Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox combine for 29 runs

Guest Post: The Cakesland Windians Will Not Be Stopped

I got tired of all the criticism about my lack of follow through for Guest Post Week so I am repairing my image today.  Do you all remember this horrible post written by G$ just a scant three weeks ago?  If you don't want to click the link and give this site unnecessary page views that it does not deserve, it was a premature eulogy for YOUR Cleveland Windians.  It is the normal...
