I cannot wait for this matchup tonight. With the draft over and the cavs getting their break I can finally sit down and concentrate on the tribe!

yes, it should be one great matchup. The baseball fan in me would rather see CC face off against Halladay but the Indians fan in me is glad that we won't have to face him this week. I won't be able to watch the game because my school hasn't picked up the channel but I listen to them on the radio. Maybe the radio is better than the TV though because of the great commentators on WTAM.

anyway, go Tribe and I hope CC recovers from that tough game against Texas.

I'm hoping that Burnett is just what this team needs to get fired up. We seem to do fairly well against hard-throwing righties.

We need to take advantage of another banged up team.

A welcome home to Johnny Mac though, who had his 10-game hitting streak snapped last night. He's hitting a whopping .415 and playing pretty regularly.

Hell yea. But I'll be clicking like a maniac back and forth with the Raps/Nets and Mavs/Warriors doubleheader.

Excited to see Burnett pitch tonight too. As Tripods mentioned (welcome dude), the Indians usually hit hard throwing righties well. Burnett's never really been what the Jays have expected him to be. Hes showed some signs this year after a shaky 1st start, but has had some problems with walks still.

How sad. 3 blasts right away off of C.C. and we can't even get a guy home from third with no one out. Pathetic.

Also, on an aside ... let's try and start a game thread every day for each Indians game.

I don't care who does it, or when.

Good idea. Also, on a hockey message board I frequent, they have a "Good, Bad & Ugly" summary after every game. Some postgame analysis would be pretty cool.

Jhonny Effin' Peralta! A two-run double, and now a three-run homer! With two strikes and (by definition) a runner in scoring position!

Jhonny! Goddam! Is the boy snappin' out of it? Seems to be on a roll this past week ...

And the HR was on a curveball too. That was a nice piece of hitting there from Honny.

How about getting Burnett up to 110+ pitches in FIVE innings?

Just heard a wow stat on the TV: Victor in 2005 and 2006 hit over .300 in EVERY MONTH of each season, except in May. In fact, his May combined average in 05/06 was .187. Wow.

Okay, actually it is his combined 2005 and 2006.....when combining the totals from each year the past two years, he has hit over .300 in each month except May.

Victor 2005:

April: .207
May: .213
June: .295
July: .323
August: .402
September: .364

Victor 2006:

April: .398
May: .165
June: .312
July: .343
August: .323
Sept: .350

(FYI, he hit .315 in May 2004)

Good idea.

I'll try and do so and pin it each night at the top. If I don't do it, anyone else can feel free to do so at anytime. Depending on some posts, we may just designate it as the game thread that night.

CC sure did settle down after those blasts in the first. 9K's to go along with no walks and he retired 16 of the last 17 batters he faced.

In other games, Hughes has a no-hitter through 6 innings right now.

Wow. Hughes pitching a no-hitter for 6.1 innings....and has to leave the game due to injury. Supposedly a pulled muscle. Man, the Yankees pitchers are dropping like flys.

I missed the game tonight, was really interested to see if C.C. can continue his ways and get over the hump as an ace ace.

Judging by the fact that as of right now we have the best record in baseball I assume it is safe to say C.C. continued his recent ways.

Heh, I was just about to say that the price for Byrd just went up. If he can be solid until June or July, does someone overpay for him? Do we do a deal if they're overpaying? One could say that if he's pitching well, and we're in contention, it would not be smart to trade him. But if they're paying $100 for something that costs $69.99, especially if something we desperately need, you've gotta at least think about it, right? Decisions, decisions...

I believe the statement you made to me about JP's day/night stats last year are spot on. He seems to be seeing the ball a whole lot better.

Did you see Peralta get that pie in the face in the post game interview?!! They said it was Trot Nixon that got him. That was hilarious!

It's all about his approach. Last year, Peralta would try and pull outside pitches and hit weak ground balls. This year, he's back to his '05 form of going to right field and right center, where his best power is.

It just amazes me how good young hitters like Peralta are still sitting fastball so often. He has to know by now in what counts he won't get a fastball, because it's been happening since late '05. In my mind, that's why his HR off that curve ball was so impressive, he may have actually been looking for it.
