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.


Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

The last few days have been, in a word, pretty heavy. (Oops, that’s two words.) On Sunday evening, I gave a short testimony at church (pre-arranged, we’re not that spontaneous) about the influence of prayer on my life. So I told the story of my call to ministry, which took place in the context of […]

opening day

Monday, March 31st, 2008

… has finally arrived, and all is (mostly) right with the world again. Even better, the Indians are up 7-4 against the White Sox after five innings. But lemme ask you this… is it a good sign if your starting catcher (who happens to hit cleanup, somehow) pulls his hamstring in the second inning of […]

game seven

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

One sentence summaries of this game: There’s always next year. Way to pull it together for the middle innings, Westbrook. (It’s too bad he gets the loss and the guy who makes more money than the entire Cleveland roster gets the win.) At least I’ll have more time for school work in the next week […]

game six

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

…of the Boston series. All I have to say is this: game seven can’t be much worse.

time warp

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Preface: Oh yeah, the Indians won again tonight, 4-2. Nice game by the “good” Jake Westbrook, who shows up about half the time. Kind of a Jekyll and Hyde situation, really. I watched the game on TV and listened to the Cleveland announcers on the radio. Now, this was an interesting experience in itself, because […]

how to improve fantasy football

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

As some of you know, I “play” the “game” known as fantasy football. If you knew that already, then you probably also know why I include quotation marks when discussing this topic. But if you don’t, here’s why I don’t consider fantasy football to be a true game. Each week, my team of players goes […]

game four

Monday, October 8th, 2007

So game three wasn’t much to speak of. I’ve always thought (in the past couple of years) that either Good Jake Westbrook or Bad Jake Westbrook will show up to pitch, and you can’t do anything to change the outcome. Bad Jake Westbrook. But now … it’s going into the ninth inning of game four, […]

game two

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Another win for the Tribe… another happy day. And what a pitchers’ duel! Fausto is the man, though … nine innings pitched, and only one mistake, the home run ball early on. For a while, I thought the Tribe would never get any run support for him… lots of times they had a runner in […]

game one

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

Oh, happy day… The Indians finally figured out how to beat the Yankees tonight… they won game 1 of their ALDS by a 12-3 score. Granted, it’s only one game, and Sabathia gave up an unseemly six walks in his five innings, so it’s not all that much to be excited about. There’s still plenty […]
