It's kind of weird. When I was in high school, I used to get way too pumped up for Spring Training to get here. While I'm sure a lot of it was just happy to see Spring approaching, it was also when the Indians were really good. It seemed like I had way too much time back then reading about the farm system, knowing all the season's plot lines, etc. It's mildly sad now seeing how much I used to enjoy it and now I just don't have time to care that much. I figure once I have kids, I'll be a lot more into the early parts of the baseball season again.

Tomlin looked very sharp today. Six up and six down, with one ground ball single, one strike out, and a double play. Nothing hit in the air. :D :D

Gotta love baseball season! GO TRIBE!!

Likewise, scoreless innings by Pure Rage Perez and Joe Smith. Jensen Lewis now on the bump in a scoreless game in the fifth.

Travis Buck drops a fly ball for a two base error, leading to a Cincinnati run. :x 1-0 in the middle of the fifth.

Wow...Just wow.

My man Joey Hustle rips a double and scores to tie the game, but then Adam Everett apparently left third too early on a sac fly. What should have given us the lead, ended the inning.

:roll:

Tie game at 1, through the sixth.

YAY! It's baseball time! Glad to see you're as excited as I am! Gee, maybe we can get this place looking like the old forum? Although there are "options".... Just so long as this is a troll-free zone we can enjoy the season. ;)

Tribe not doing too badly. Although I think they'll be improved over last year (honestly, could they get much worse? :? ) I'm going into this season more relaxed because I know there are no expectations for greatness this year but I think we'll see some glimmers of hope for the future. I hope....

Go Tribe!

First bomb of the (pre)season caps off a HUGE inning for the Tribe! Also featured doubles by Chad Huffman and Lonnie Chisenhall. Now 6-1 Indians. :D

Apparently THAT inning was our Lucky Number Seven! Who were those guys? Seriously, who were they? I know Hammy (isn't he in mid-season form already? :D LOVE it!) said their names and where they came from...but who are they? The future might be even a little better?

FWIW, I looked all over for an image for the Mike Hargrove "Human Rain Delay" bobblehead and came up empty. :(

Zach Putnam is struggling a bit with his inning. He's given up four runs now, including two back-to-back home runs.

I think Putnam should have a great future with the Tribe; he's got fantastic stuff.

Now only a one-run lead for the Tribe. :?

I think it's classic conditioning that causes me to fear this upcoming 9th inning. I have no idea if the bullpen will actually suck or not, but I'm scared nonetheless

To sum up, a few general observations I made about the game today:

-Josh Tomlin looked very sharp in his two innings of work today. He struck out a batter, induced a double play, and didn't allow a batter to hit the ball in the air. A good way to start the battle for the fifth rotation spot.

-Joey Hustle performed very well in today's game. He made a few great defensive plays at third base, and if memory served he had a run-scoring double.

-Tough outing for both Alex White and Zach Putnam today. Although Putnam is technically in the running for a bullpen job, with the signing of Chad Durbin both are likely slated to open the season in AAA Columbus. They both should get a few more chances to impress the coaching staff before they are optioned to minor league camp; here's hoping they make the most of them.

-Overall not too much to say about the Tribe's starters offensively, but the "second team" made the most of opportunities given to them in the seventh inning. Nice to see Carrera show some power; that has been one of the weaknesses in his game. Maybe this is a sign that he's improving in that area. With the injury to Crowe and the slow progress of Sizemore, he has a good shot to open the year in Cleveland.

-Two non-roster players made costly gaffs that each hurt the Tribe dearly. Travis Buck dropped a pop fly, a two-base error that led to the first run of the game. Later in the game, Adam Everett left third base early on a sacrifice fly attempt, which cost the Indians a run. It may be the first game of spring training, but this type of error (especially the base running mistake) cannot happen.

All in all, I wish we could have won the game, but I'm glad that baseball is here again! GO TRIBE!!

Nope, Hope is a Dr. Pepper kinda gal, but as a gracious host I think she would be offering us a variety of beverages of choice. ;)

In spite of the fact that the Tribe lost yesterday there were some bright spots. Since this is a day later I can't remember details of any in particular, but I thought we did OK. I have to laugh at the people up here. They were all excited about the first two games the Sux won...against Northeastern and Boston colleges. :P Yesterday they played a real team (the Twinkies) and lost. :lol: Right now they're in the middle of the fourth and the Sux are losing to them again 6-3. Our Tribe may not break .500 this year (but I think/hope they'll be much closer than last year - AND have more wins than the Cavs :? ) but I can at least enjoy every loss the Sux have. *shrug* Schadenfreude...

I won't be able to listen to today's game live (curse you, class... :lol:). But one of the nice things I recently found out about MLB Gameday Audio is the archive feature. It lets you listen to a previously aired game as soon as later that day. So I think that's what I'll be doing tonight. :D
