Yeah I remember hearing that story on STO and thought it was funny, I kept thinking well they better becareful next time they say that "were going to trade for a big bat" cause that might be just what they get, minus the batter. :guffaw: ETA: okay what did I or the Tribe do to tick off the baseball gods? In the first we tie it 1-1 on a Dellucci solo homer (his 5th), then were up 2-1 (Dellucci HBP, Francisco singles, Victor Singles Dellucci scores), then 3-1 (Jhonny Peralta solo homer his 10th), then they get one and its 3-2 and then 3-3 in the seventh, then we bring in the relief pitcher just up from the minors, last in the majors in 2003 in the form of Scott Elarton who promptly and actually quickly gives up 3 runs (singles no less). But the bottom of the 12th (not a mistype) Victor singles off Jenks, Carroll Singles off Jenks, Peralta GIDP two down and then Franky stikes out with on on third. This game went about 4 hrs. Game 1: Tribe 3 - Cws 6 Oh well new day, new game, new challenge.
