    It just occured to me, we've never had a place where we can discuss, cheer, scream, and complain about of beloved CLEVELAND INDIANS!!!

    This past weekend was GREAT, they swept a 3 game series agains the Cincinnati Reds! All 3 games were come from behind wins, there was plenty of home runs, the bullpen didn't self-destruct, and Griffey didn't hit #500 in our yard!

    And today...they blasted Baltimore 14-0!!! :eek: J. Westbrook pitched a complete game!

    :_| That was a HORRID game! The Reds were terrible. I am glad that wasn't the game we bought tickets to see. So far Cleveland is 39-39 and the Reds are 42-37 so we are doing better- but only by a small margin.
    We are going as a fanforce to see the game on Sunday. I sure hope the reds play better! :)

    i wouldn't say the reds played horribly... it's not like they were throwing the ball all over the field... no errors...

    problem is, the Tribe actually hit left-handed pitching... with a vengeance i might add... and Kaz Tadano pitched his head off...

    cincy's doing better? better?!? how is Cincy doing better?!?!? they're 5 games back tied for 3rd place in a stronger division!! They're looking up at the Cubs (3 games) and the Cardinals (5 games), tied with the Brewers, and their 1B just went down with a strained calf!! meanwhile, the Tribe is in third all by it's lonesome in the AL Central. 4 games back of the White Sox and could possibly overtake the Twins for 2nd place.

    ok, sure the Reds are 5 games over .500 at 42-37 and the Tribe is only playing .500 at 39-39. but let's look at what they've done over the season:

    April: Reds: 12-10 Indians: 9-13. advantage Reds

    May: Reds: 18-11 Indians: 13-13. advantage Reds

    Last 10 games: Reds: 4-6 Indians: 5-5. advantage Indians

    Last 20 games: Reds: 8-12 Indians: 12-8. advantage Indians

    Last 30 games: Reds: 13-17 Indians: 17-13. advantage Indians

    Long story short (i know, too late): The Reds started off killing the NL Central, then fell off the table. don't get me wrong... i like the Reds, they're may third fave team. but they're dropping off in the NL Central. meanwhile, the Tribe has been slowly getting better all sesaon, and they've somehow climbed into the divisional hunt. it's a marathon, not a sprint, and all ya gotta do is make the playoffs. right now, the Tribe has a better chance of doing that than the Reds.

    i just wanna know how exactly the Reds are doing better.

    I completely forgot that one of our hometown boys was playing for the Indians now. Here's a shoutout to "Framingham" Lou Merloni from the folks back home!

    Also... congrats on beating the Rangers last night =D=.

    It just occured to me, that we've never had a thread where we can cheer, cry, complian about our local sports teams.

    The win against Texas was nice, even though it's been a few years since the "John Hart firesale" it's nice to stick it to the old boss!

    Thought your boys were gonna pull it off there last night :oops:. Tonight ought to be better. El Duque was the best they've got right now so I'm guessing tonights game ought to have a different outcome.

    it's not gonna be new york's year this year... it's not gonna be boston's year either mind you... but at least the yankees might make it to the playoffs... ;)

    but they won't win it... trivia time!!!

    the last team that hosted the republican national convention and went to the world series was the 1932 Chicago Cubs...

    the last team that won it in those circumstances? the 1908 Chicago Cubs...

    new york is battling history... and i don't think they'll pull it off...

    boston? well, boston just sucks... :p

    That's not very nice. :p The last time you started spewing anti-Boston stuff you were invited to our sports threads for friendly debate, an offer you have yet to take advantage of. The fans over there are not the stereotypical fans you probably have in mind. :)

    Just remember that on the morning of October 4th when the Tribe is watching the playoffs instead of playing in them [face_devil].
