Just a bro tryin' to bro. The question that beckons to be asked is how in the world he has 1.73 million followers.
Nope, wasn't going to last. But it definitely reiterated just how good and important our starting five are. They started Zach McAllister out of the bullpen and he got absolutely mauled.
Wicked ass team. Hitting is more than acceptable and above preseason expectations despite best player/hitter out virtually all season thus far. This is in large part to Napoli/Rajai Davis playing above expectations, Chiz finally playing near his ability, JRAM playing lights out, the completely unexpected hitting of phenom Tyler Naquin and Lindor/Kipnis being Lindor/Kipnis.
I'd pit this rotation against any rotation in baseball. This is a full lock-down rotation; if the Tribe scores 3 runs on you, you're in deep trouble.
Bullpen is still source of concern. It's close. If C Allens 4SFB isn't moving - which is the case as often as not sometimes - he's virtually throwing batting practice. Shaw's meltdowns have been over stated.
I'd love to see a Cleveland Indians World Series title, but Cleveland never wins championships.
Quite a bit.
I'm fascinated with this year's Cubs team. And these guys can't even drink yet. Get used to the Cubs, NL Central division, for a long, long time. I'd love to see a Tribe/Cubs World Series. I wouldn't feel good about it, tbh. But would relish the chance.
Buckeye games; Alabama no question. Anything in my lifetime? Cavs, game 7, after being down 3 games to 1 against "the best team ever". You may have heard of it. That game > All.
Not. Even. Close.
At this time next year my answer will probably still be the Cavs, but with the Tribe's game 7 win in the 2016 World Series as my runner-up.
It's a Cleveland thing.
I don't know who would DV this thought, but there's some truth to it. Hitting wins the regular season. Pitching wins the post season. I love Napoli (PARTY AT NAPOLI'S) and Rajai Davis, but I'm not sure we can rely on them all year. One more R hand stick would do my heart well. Brantley, their best hitter is on the mends and on his way back.
Shore the bullpen. Nothing special. Just decent to better than avg middle relief arms.
The starting pitching is motha f@cking tits. Period. Carrasco? Kluber? Tomlin? Salazar? Bauer as your NUMBER FIVE guy? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Gfto! And they're locked up forever and a day.
Cleveland against the world, baby! Our time. Right now.
Cavs are world champions. Just throwing that out there
Was up there last night would have loved to be there today for the WORLD CHAMPS if not for an annoying thing called sleep. I must've kissed a dozen random CLEVELAND girls last night - none better. None.
Every city in the country has gone longer than Cleveland without winning a major sports title.
They're all Cavs fans today, anyway. :)
Seattle, WE DID IT!
I WAS THERE for game 6, and at the Q last night. LOL
God damn I love you, Cleveland. (my bad on the Progressive Field info, earlier last week).
It's a Cleveland thing. #Champs
Nothing better in the universe than a straight ticket Cleveland fan all day, every day.
First place Cleveland Indians- you're up.
We did it!
This is one of the best times in my lifetime to be a NE Ohio sports fan; Cavs in the NBA Championship, Tribe absolutely trending the right direction, the Browns.....at least making effort (best I can give them right now) to right the ship with new front office. And of course, The Ohio State University Buckeyes every season.
Gf and I are about an hour away from walking out door and heading up there. I couldn't feel better about tonight.
Don't forget, the game 7 watch party will be at Progressive Field, June 19th. Assuming there is one, of course. The place is going to sound like 90's Cleveland baseball used to sound :)
Cleveland's starting pitching even better than I suspected; when Kluber's your 3rd or 4th best starter, you're doing things right. At least with the rotation. Best player out most of the season thus far and best pitcher just returned. Offensive numbers up there with top 5 or 6 in AL, but misleading after putting up fat football numbers in Cincy series - still need a legitimate R stick. Shore-up the bullpen and could be the one team no one wants anything to do with in post season if they get in.
I'm in minority but I still feel DET best team in division. You'll never win a division in June but you sure as hell can lose one. DET still lurking around while never even playing close to "good" baseball yet. Despite a question or two in the rotation, I think once $24,000,000.00/year J Upton thaws out and that line up gets even remotely halfway in sync, they will stomp through the AL.
MLB finally realizes its wettest of dreams: Chi Cubs & Boston Red Sox this fall in the classic. Baseball's most problematic issue - luke warm spectators of local markets - will suddenly become rabid "life long" fans of the game for 2 weeks and buy stuff. Lots of stuff.
I have to confess, its only June but with the excitement of the Cavs and preparing for that glorious parade on 9th and Carnegie, and OSU getting bounced early in NCAA tourney, I find myself already bored with baseball. I've never been more ready for some Urban F@cking Meyer football.
I still say the meanest creature on earth is a fire ant.
Maybe. But with mammals, pound for pound, I'm going with raccoons.
Send em to hell!
I let most deer walk but never pass the chance on a coyote.
When I was 17 or 18 years old, it was exciting and something very cool to have a coyote pass under my stand. I never even considered drawing on one. Those days are long gone. I keep an arrow with a field tip in my quiver specifically for those very occasions.
I own a few small plots of land in central and south east Ohio and have access to several more throughout the state for whitetail archery. I've seen more coyote and coyote sign this year than any of the other years, exponentially. Where I used to be surprised once in a while and capture them on game film, it's become routine now. When I swap out an SD card in the field, I now expect multitudes of coyote pics. But it's not just the noticeable increase in numbers that's alarming, it's the behavior (although its reasonable to infer the behavior change is due to the increase in population and dwindling habitat); I almost never saw coyote out in open pastures in mid day/broad light daylight unless it was running to get to cover, whereas I see coyote calmly combing open fields routinely now and seemingly without fear. This is well on it's way to becoming a huge problem in Ohio.
Good grief, the guy is @ -130 HS. Can't some mod with a little autonomy just give him the mercy kill? You know, save him from himself before he comes back with "and one more thing"
Pulp Fiction, Zed, MRON and a goodbye thread. I feel like I've hit for the cycle today.
I just want to know how many national championships he thinks Michigan will win before Harbaugh retires from there in 2059.
So many epic quotes in this thread. Today, words cannot express how much I love all you bastards.
Made my day.
I admit. I'm simple af.
This is kind of like LeBron's coming home speech. Only opposite.
Apparently, as was illustrated upthread in a picture of Harbaugh wearing a Hank Aaron jersey at a camp in Georgia, Harbaugh latest schtick at his drive by's is to wear the jersey of a local sports hero. I guess if you can't tout championships at Michigan with Michigan jersey's , you might as well pander with a local hero....
I've noticed that. That's the equiv of telling each city you tour "No one rocks like (insert town you're playing in), MOTHER EFFERS!"
