    World Series Game 5: It's a Best of Three

    For all he talk about home-field advantage, both teams are 1-1 at home in the series. Kershaw goes in game 5 in Houston, but everyone knows that Verlander is going in game 6 in LA. Suddenly home field looks less important than matchups. Has Houston's momentum been reversed? Does momentum in a...

    Gurriel faces a suspension next season, but is allowed to play the rest of the series. Wood vs. Morton. Astros still unbeaten at home. My hunch is the winner of this game wins the series.

    Windows 10 - Because it's too good to be called Windows 9

    Has anyone else downloaded the Technical Preview? I've got it running in a virtual machine, and after 5 minutes I already like it better than Windows 8. On a PC, it boots directly to the desktop, the Start Menu is back (although it's been tweaked a bit to add Windows 8-style tiles), and the apps...
