OK, It's Not Me

It had to happen. Going into last night's game the Tribe had played 37 home games and had won 16 of them. I mean, that's not quite half, but it's better than none, which is the number of wins I had seen in my first eight trips to the ballyard this year. The odds were with me, and I finally witnessed a W.

With Burks and Vizquel both out with injuries, and Garcia traded, this is really a punchless lineup that we're fielding these days, so it was good to see the team call up Victor Martinez today. He's been the hottest hitter in all of the minor leagues for a month now, and he can definitely help us. I was feeling pretty good about things until they ripped my guts out this afternoon, losing the game after having a one-run lead with two outs and none on, in the ninth. El Foldo.
