Winds blowing out to left/center, gusting into the 30s. McAllister better keep the ball down. The warmest and most humid night of the season so far. Ball may actually have some carry tonight.

Damn, Salty hits one out right after it looked like Z-Mac had him struck out on a breaking ball.

Jimmie Foxx, Mo Vaughn and Yaz/Ted Williams for the Trivia question??


Offense is dire to watch again, but it is Lester so I will give them a pass.

Santana is a fucking moron. You have to set up inside every now and then. Fucking guy is trying to go to right field the entire at bat. Christ.

Remember those days when, "Free Cord Phelps" was bandied about regularly on these boards?

Yeah... why'd we do that again?

Orlando Cabrera, even today, is probably an upgrade.

There's a reason career stiff Ryan Raburn beat Cord Phelps for a roster spot in Spring Training. That was it.

As long as we're talkin crazy, I once had back-to-back patients who were both from Australia, and they did not know one another.

Maybe that's not that crazy, i dunno. Trying to find anything interesting while watching Tribe getting swept at home. Solid 2-6 homestand.

The Astros pitchers we are facing are all winless and shit

A sweep would be very welcome right now and then another series win over Shitcago

I never underestimate pitchers on other teams, winless or not. A sweep would be awesome tho. I be happy to take 2 of 3.

NOTE: I do remember last season when the Indians were in Houston (still a NL team then) Tribe goes into Houston with a 1.5 game lead in 1st place... Tribe leaves with 0.5 games back and haven't been in 1st place since.

So I hope maybe going back to Houston can get this team on the track of 1st place again. 3.5 games back kinda hard tho

Sometimes when you look for lightning in a bottle you just end up with a bottle full of urine.
