Keep in mind that Spring Training is just three and a half months away and every team in the National League will be gunning for the Champs in 2012. Go forth and celebrate your 11th World Serious title, because next year the Texas Rangers will be back and better than ever!

The bigger the prize, the stoopider the shit they will do. Don’t believe me? Read this post and you’ll want to

- The $25 Million Dollar Dumbass Mistake – Here are some clues: 1.) Ay-rab. 2) 7-11.3.) Dumbass and 4.) Lotto. Go see what I mean.
That’s the Dumbass News Week in Review for the last full week of October.
