Default Congratulations, Indians!

Hell, I know it's only April, but this was a gritty win today to take the series in extra innings. Pennants aren't won in April, but a win like this is good for momentum. To go into last years most dominant teams house, and play what many people are saying is an even BETTER version of the Sox, and take 2 of 3 is impressive.

I have a feeling this Indians team MAY be the team to beat in the AL this year...

Sunday Night I'm throwing out...sitting on your hands for 3 hours of rain delay will kill any motivation.

I like Wedge's strategy this year. He's always downplayed winning in Winter Haven because there were a ton of position battles going on...well, not this year. With most of the line-up in place, he got the Tribe up and winning right out of the gate...in fact, I think they tied or broke their own team record for Spring Training wins.

It'll be a fun year...the fans have no excuses for not showing up, since they've locked up ALL their young talent for at least 3 more years.

And, again, they are THE model for the Buc's to emulate...nobody does it better.

I HATE THE WHITE SOX.

One of my goals for the team this year was to win a one-run game against the Sox.To do it this early to a "better" Sox team I think gives the team more confidence and shows the Sox that they won't smack us around this year.

The key is to do it at the Jake...we were pretty competitive in their house last year, but I think we lost 9 of 10 at the Jake against them last year...we also got our asses handed to us in our own stadium by, of all teams, the Devil Rays. That HAS to change in '06!

Spanked the not-too-shabby Twins today 11-6. Grand Slam by, of all "hitters", Casey Blake. Pronk had a couple HR's, and the bullpen looked sharp. Hitters are just killing the ball, and the bottom 3rd of the lineup is as productive as the top. Very promising start...
