And Thome did a nice job there hitting a good pitch.

BTW Daz, looks like I'm going to be in London from 9/17-10/20. Any tips? I know Cardiff isn't exactly close, but figured you've spent some time there regardless.

I lived about 30-40mins outside London for about 7 years. Surprisingly, didn't actually go into the city centre that often.

When you first get there, do what everyone else does and go tourist crazy..... Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, London Eye, Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, Museums, Galleries, West End shows etc etc. In doing all that you should stumble across things that you'll wanna re-visit... be it restaurants or whatever.

Outside of that, the only advice I would give you is to not even think about getting in a car..... the Tube is the only way to go in London.

If you've got some time at the weekends, then hiring a car to drive out of London to visit some places might not be a bad idea.

Where in London are you staying?

7GB and 2K for Justin thru 3.

The sinker's sharp tonight.

Hopefully, it's just bruising for AC and he should be OK..... doubtful he plays tomorrow though.

I'll be in Grosvenor Square, right near the embassy. I was there for a week last summer, and all I had time to see was the Imperial War Museum, which was really cool.

Thanks for the tips...hope I get enough free time to see most of what I want. I'm a big history buff, so want to try and take the boat across the channel to Normandy to see the battlefields/cemetery's etc too.

Interesting call by Manny lifting Masterson after only 87 pitches.

He had given up a run in the last 3 innings and had lost his control somewhat.

Any slip from Perez might just mean the end of this 'race' the Indians are in and there's no intended hyperbole in that statement. He needs to get this one.

Good win.

See if they can get another tomorrow with even fewer healthy players and offensive threats.

This is unquestionably one of my favorite Cleveland teams in my lifetime. The amount of things I have been wrong about concerning tbis team are way, way too numerous to count. I thought the Valbuena games in left field were the start of the end. I surely thought the Seattle series after the Detroit series was the at last free fall is here especially after falling below .500 for the first time since April 5th. They surprise and shock me continually. They likely won't win the division, but you know, I'm gonna keep paying attention! I'm hoping everyone here face palms me after about 5 more fantastic Jimenez starts!!
