maybe next year

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

From this week’s Sports Illustrated: 66-32: Margin by which the last-place Indians have been outscored in the eighth inning this year. 364-357: Margin by which the Indians have outscored their opponents in all other innings. Enough said.

game seven

One sentence summaries of this game: There’s always next year. Way to pull it together for the middle innings, Westbrook.
