I'm still here. (Been working my butt off on the front yard. I did a lot of work taking out sod, putting in new plants and trees, new weed barrier and mulch. Wanted to get it done before the rain and/or snow comes tomorrow.......)

It is too bad that the Injuns won't make it in six. Well, that's okay. Maybe seven... Or maybe not at all.

Who cares? Ramirez doesn't.

That "homer" by Drew looked to be the equivalent of a deep fly ball in Coors. We shall see what happens when the Crimson Hose or the Injuns get Denver.

Remember all the Rockies have to do is split in either Boston or Cleveland. The Rockies can play with either of them, I think.

Nice touch: "You have wakened a sleeping giant. There will be consequences and repercussions....." Sounds ominous. Just like a Junior High thriller play......

I think it's more a reference to this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isoroku_Yamamoto's_sleeping_giant_quote


Quote:
Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is portrayed in the 1970 film Tora! Tora! Tora!, as saying after his attack on Pearl Harbor, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." The supposed quote was abbreviated in the film Pearl Harbor (2001), where it merely read, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant."

Just looking at the Logo for the Injuns: It is a diamond shaped face with one red finger...er....feather sticking up, with a goofy toothy grin. Is that the index finger or is that the middle finger? Not knowing Cleveland very well, you understand..... Logo looks cartoonish.

The Blackhawks have a better looking logo as far as using indians as logos. I think the Redskins' logo is unimaginative, as well as the cheeps.

So many indians and so many loser logos......

Thank you Captain Obvious. I, too, read about the Japanese attack on Pearl and I also saw both movies. Yamamoto's remarks were made because he did not get the knock out punch on the American Carriers that he had hoped.

The remarks yesterday was a juvenile attempt to draw some correlation between the severe consequences of an act of war to the outcome of a baseball game. Remember Yamamoto's remarks preceded a defeat......

Rather pathetic, actually.

As a tribe fan, i think if we don't get on Dice-K in the first couple of innings, stick a fork in us. We DESPERATELY need to take some momentum and we NEED to get out to an early lead. If we fall behind, i think thats it

too be honest, I have a feeling Dice-K is due for a patented "dice-k" kind of game, the good kind that the red sox expect. In addition, I have a funny feeling "jake" won't be quite as fortunate against the sox hitters as he was in cleveland. in any case, another game 7, good entertainment for sure seeing as the broncos are playing the steelers. I'm guessing the bronco game may be pretty tough to watch by midway through the third. I'll use the "rtn channel" to check in football now and again..dman

Hey,

Any word on how the Rocks have looked in their simulated games? I know it's a reach but this has been a long lay off!

Here's a decent summary. I've read a few places that Aaron Cook looked really sharp. I really hope they put him on the roster - it would allow them to bump Morales to the bullpen. The upside of a fresh Aaron Cook to start Game Four is much higher than that of having a guy like Taylor Buchholz available for middle relief.

Cool article. I totally forgot that the rules change when in Boston or Cleveland. As a new baseball fan, that is still odd to me, different rules for different teams. But anyways, totally forgot that somebody would have to hit for the pitchers. That will be interesting.

It will be a bigger problem for the AL team tho. The NL team just plugs in its best hitter for the games at the AL ballpark and does what it always does when at home, whereas the AL team will have to change its lineup for the games in Denver.

Good point. That means Boston would have to bench somebody to put Ortiz in the field, if they were to make it. I never thought of it that way. You're right, that is a big problem.

Well, it's a stupid rule. It's one they should completely abolish. They won't, but they should.

i cant wait to see those fat ass AL players play the Rockies. we run every ground ball out. i dont think those fat AL players know how to turn a double play with the pressure we will bring.
i couldnt even watch the game tonight-fatass pitcher takes his time taking the mound. fat ass batter takes his time getting into the batters box.........
four hours to play nine innings. and MLB wonders why NFL is the number one sport?

The DH has infiltrated all levels of baseball (HS, college, minors) which is a sad sight to see.

That lowlife Donald Fehr won't give it up in the AL.

The time of games has been an issue throughout the playoffs. Several of these games have been stretched out to four hours in a nine inning span. I have noticed FOX and TBS are getting extra ad time between innings that's atypical of regular season baseball. MLB never seems to get it. 2-2.5 hour games like we saw 30 years ago in baseball should be the norm.

Despite all of baseball's blunders, they aren't that far behind the NFL, at least in making money. Here's the total revenues for the major four sports in 2006:

1. NFL $5.86 Billion
2. MLB $5.2 Billion
3. NBA $3.13 Billion
4. NHL $2.2 Billion

Do you really think the broncos will be competitive with the steelers tonight? I , quite frankly, do not. Believe the steelers will run all over the D, essentially game over once that happens. Besides, thought you were trying to go the game at fenway? Man I used to love to go to fenway, take the train down from lowell and down to boston...what a blast....dman

It depends on the team.

For Cleveland, they have two young aces who've never been anything but AL guys and haven't taken regular ABs at all in their ML career. They also have Travis Hafner at DH, and while he's been scuffling of late he is arguably their best hitter but a god awful fielder. Add that Wedge has never managed a major league club without the DH and you've got an interesting situation that I would say favors the Rockies.

For Boston, they feature Beckett and Schilling, two guys with most of their career starts in the NL. Their #4 starter, Tim Wakefield, started his career in the NL for the Pirates, as a first baseman. Their pitchers have had to bat regularly before, and have pretty strong fundamentals. As for DH, Ortiz is actually a passable 1B, they just prefer to DH him because early in his career he had a lot of knee injuries associated with the daily wear and tear of fielding. 3 games of it aren't going to be significant in that regard. Though it is something of a defensive downgrade as Youkilis has been outstanding with the glove this season. Also, Terry Francona managed the Phillies for several years and played most of his career in the NL, so he is very familiar with the NL game. Its not nearly the edge at home that playing Cleveland would be.

It'll be interesting regardless though. If its Cleveland and Wedge we'll see how quickly a primarily AL guy can change gears and handle the NL rules. If its the Red Sox and Francona I expect to see as close to a managerial battle as baseball really gets.

ESPN is reporting that Paul Byrd is under investigation for purchasing large doses of HGH ($25 K worth). Now that funny.

I love the timing right before game seven. I wonder how long they were sitting on this story? Was Byrd on the George Mitchell report which revealed several big names during a conference call last week? From what I understand, MLB is waiting for a convenient time after the World Series to release the Mitchell report. Makes you wonder if this is a ploy by FOX to get the Red Sox into the World Series to juice their ratings. Not to mention, ESPN is such a pro-New England media outlet. This stinks. I hope the Indians come together and prevail.
