Chargers Editorial: Pete Stoyanovich Made Me a Chargers Fan

It wasn’t all Pete Stoyanovich‘s fault. The snap was high, the timing was off and after losing a 15 point halftime lead, it just seemed like the Dolphins were destined to lose and I was destined to be a Chargers fan.

Padres Rumors: Elvis Andrus for James Shields Might Work

The Texas Rangers came very close to advancing in the American League Divisional Series.
