Psychologically, that's a huge win. Start the trip on a high note, win a game with a little adversity, and have the secondary bullpen guys get it done.

Different hero every night.

7 wins of 4+ runs.

14 teams in baseball have seven or less wins total.

Classic..... Underwood just called him "Tiny Tim" Collins..... priceless!


His exact words were "Tiny Tim Collins taking it on the chin here."

Sounds like a tagline for a gay porno.


That's nice work right there.

Shelly Duncan sprinting through the dugout to the locker-room after his postgame STO interview was classic. That dude seems to be a strange bird. My kinda team Charlie, my kinda team.

The Indians have been doing some post game ritual in the locker room after games (maybe just wins), but they wait for the guys to get done with their post game interviews. Duncan probably didn't want to make them wait longer than needed, plus they seem to like this ritual so he wanted to get it started.

Did not know of these ritual, thanks for the tip. Additional tips including ritual details are welcome, unless it's bad mojo to share such detail.

Acta has the cigar thing down for sure.

Yeah, I hear that Underwood said on Rizzo this morning that they do a toast (or something like that) in the clubhouse after every win. Then he talked about how tight this clubhouse seems to be, noting how around 10 guys ate breakfast together in the hotel yesterday morning and how you rarely see that happen.
