CC - just 3 days rest for 4th straight time

CC will be starting tonight on just three days' rest for the fourth straight time even though he's already pitched 253 innings this season Thomas Boswell writes in the Washington Post: Like...


The Minors: Kinston

The weather in Washington cooled and the humidity dropped yesterday so my wife and I headed to Woodbridge to watch Kinston play the Potomac Nationals (a Washington National's team) .  I guess...


Mid-term Comments

Now that the season is half over, I think we have a pretty good idea what kind of team we have this year.We are solid contenders.  We're playing smart and winning close games. has a...



Here is a picture of the Let's Go Tribe contingent at RFK Stadium today.  Despite the "Can't Do" attitude at RFK's Will Call window staff, I finally made it to section 519 and got to finally meet...


Kinston last night

While most of you were enjoying the miracle comeback last night, I was at G. Richard Fitzner Stadium in Woodbridge, Virginia, watching Mike Sarbaugh's Kinston Indians clobber the Potomac...


Pictures from today's game

I drove up to Camden Yards today, about 40 miles from my house, to watch the game.  I took my camera and lucked into some pretty good photos including the pitch that Travis hit for the grand slam....



When I reviewed the Tribe's spring training pitching stats last night, the thing that jumped out at me is Matt Miller's 16 strikeouts in 7.1 innings! He leads the club. I hope he can stay healthy...


My last spring training game

Man, the week flew by!Today was my last day at spring training. I wish I was leaving with a win, but at least they fought back today.The biggest surprise this week was how much playing time they've...


Spring Training: another 5-2 loss

Another day, another 5-2 loss, but today's loss was not nearly as sloppy as last night's. Cincy had some good pitching. Westbrook looked sharp!  Four strikeouts in three innings.  I was worried...


Last night's game w/ the Pirates

Last night's game was bad all around.  Bryd looked inconsistant - I'm not looking for him to be in the starting lineup by the end of the year.  The starting catcher Wyatt Torregas, was visibly...


A week in Winter Haven

After an 18 hour drive that started in Washington DC in a snowstorm and ended just before midnight with the car windows open, I'm in Winter Haven (well, actually Davenport, 20 miles away).Today's...


More on Chris Coste

This screenplay would be rejected in a minute!I was browsing The Good Phight, the Phillie's blog, this morning and noticed a post by dajafi who linked to a great article in the New York Times about...


Marte promoted to the Tribe!

Just saw it posted on (  Vazquez was optioned to Buffalo to make room on the roster.Marte has is batting .261 with 15 homers and 46 RBIs.  However, he's made 19...


Random Ramblings

I didn't have high hopes for a win last night and I wasn't disappointed.  I started out listening to the game on XM while watching the Phillies-Mets game on ESPN.  As someone last night mentioned,...


Feel Good Story of the Day

Chris Coste got his start in baseball as a catcher for Fargo-Moorehead in the independent Northern League.  He played for Fargo-Moorehead for the next four years, hitting over .310 each year. He...


Time to switch teams!

Last night I got to attend a Kinston double header (7 innings each).  It was great (the games were played in Woodbridge, VA, just outside DC). The weather was perfect, but nippy.Kinston played the...


Half Full - Half Empty?

I've never seen two pitchers on the same team pull up lame in the same game, much less the same inning.  10 pitches apart.  That has got to be demoralizing.Worse, the Indians now look eminently...
