8-14-12 ~ Wahoos at Anaheim Angels (AA) ~ Don't make me....

Unread postby Am I Here Again? » Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:47 pm

...Drink, Ubaldo. Well, unless it's in celebration...


For YOUR Cleveland Indians:

Pitching: Ubaldo Jimenez

Jason Kipnis DH, Asdrubal Cabrera SS, Shin-Soo Choo RF, Carlos Santana C, Michael Brantley CF, Casey Kotchman 1B, Jason Donald 2B, Jack Hannahan 3B, Ezequiel Carrera LF


For the Angels:

Pitching: Zack Greinke P

Mike Trout CF, Torii Hunter RF, Albert Pujols 1B, Kendrys Morales DH, Mark Trumbo LF, Alberto Callaspo 3B, Howie Kendrick 2B, Erick Aybar SS, Chris Iannetta C

Can the train keep rolling, or will Jiminez run us off the track? I can't remember if he tends to stink at home and win on the road, or vice versa...

I don't think even he can keep that straight anymore!

Acta may as well pull Ubaldo now. He has that "Pat Shurmur" Deer in the headlights look on his face already.

I was thinking the same thing. Although with all the name changes and new faces, you could probably say "Izzy Iskowitz" is coming out of the 'pen and I doubt anyone would raise an eyebrow.

Only the masochists are still watching this game. Like me.

Guess I missed our "comeback" attempt. Walked away from the laptop towards the middle of the 6th just to grab a couple things to pack...and came back just in time for highlights. Thanks to Ubaldo, though, I'm saved the trouble of trying to find internet for the next couple of days just so I can keep a win streak going. I'm pretty sure my longest winning streak is......one. :hide:

One positive: No matter how Fauxberto Carnandez pitches tomorrow it CAN'T be worse than Ubaldo's first, right?Image

You've been a Tribe fan long enough to know the answer to this question.

I'll go with pitied.

Actually, full disclosure, I spent most of the time watching the Roseanne roast I DVR'd. I just had to stay up to post my front page recap when the game was over. I usually watch more intently, but the game was over by the top of the second. And definitely over after the bottom of the fourth.

I guess if that's the bar many can clear it.

I don't care what the guy calls himself, as soon as I see him pouring sweat from every pore and throwing erratically as hell, I'll know exactly who he is.

Here's hoping the 3 years he aged a few months ago help him mature into something other than what he's always been.
