I Don’t Know. Third Base!

The famous Abott and Costello skit ‘Who’s On First’ goes something along the lines of “Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know, third base” While in the skit these happen to be the players actual names, this could turn out to be a real life scenario for the Cleveland Indians in the not-so-distant […]
