Tribe Enters 2nd Half With A Win & A Different Line-Up :)

I was so excited to finally get back to the season after the break, & I certainly should have been, because we started the 2nd half off with a resounding “W!” The first thing I noticed while sitting in my room getting ready for the game with my usual Ramen Noodles, was that Grady Sizemore was back in the lead-off spot & the line-up had a new look. I was really excited about that, because I know what a 1-2-3 punch of Grady, Asdrubal, & Choo can do to you. ( Hey that ryhmes! ) Anyways, we automatically took the lead in the first 1-0. We kept piling it on the whole game & eventually it was 3-0. After that the Mariners hit a homer to make it 3-1. Cliff Lee probably got fired up after that, because the rest of the game he just got better & better. This is what I would like to imagine what the baseball looked like coming at the Mariner’s hitters after that single homer was given up,

Wondering what the line-up looks like & why I’m making a big deal out of it? OK 🙂

Grady Sizemore, CF

Asrubal Cabrera, SS

Shin-Shoo-Choo, RF

Victor Martinez, 1B

Travis Hafner, DH

Jhonny Peralta, 3B

Ben Francisco, LF

Jamey Carroll, 2B

Kelly Shoppach, C

& Now that Grady is in the lead-off spot again, he seems to be pretty comfortable there..after all, he made great offensive & great defensive plays also, like the leaping grab at the wall to save extra bases from happening for the Mariners. I’m really glad he is back in the lead-off spot!

Not to be out-done, Asdrubal decided he would make some good plays too, making a smooth behind-the-back throw to the second base-man to start an amazing double play.
Here is the link to watch it : http://mlb.mlb.com/media/video.jsp?mid=200907175581861 Grady said this about that defensive play ; “It was pretty special,” Sizemore said. “He made it look easy.”

After the game Cliff Lee was interviewed about his full-game, 4-1 win. I listened to it, & just as they were waiting for him to come & get interviewed, they started talking about all the trade rumors that have been going on. Of course, Cliff came up right as they were talking about him, & they started laughing. In the interview, they eventually asked him what he thought about all the rumors & how he deals with them, & he responded, “What rumors?” That’s your awnser right there. 🙂 He said, “I try not to really pay attention to any of those rumors. I dont read newspapers or any other articles about me or about rumors, all I pretty much watch is SportsCenter.” That got me laughing, & also I was shocked that he watched SportsCenter, because that’s basically what I watch, too. I shouldn’t probably have been shocked, but I was.

I know the fans were happier than they have been for awhile, ( I know I was ), because they filled up Pro Field pretty good & were even chanting “lets go tribe,” which I haven’t heard them do for awhile. 🙂 It was all around an enjoyable game for me. This is probably what I imagine all the players were doing after the game, since they all played a really good game.

TA-DAHHHH. 🙂

Tribe’s Asdrubal Cabrera is injured.

just what we didn’t need. asdrubal cabrera of our tribe has gotten injured, and it doesn’t look so good at all. he has a dislocated shoulder, and according to the Indians site, he may not have to go on the DL like Grady has had to do, but he may have to, it all depends on the MRI he is getting. me and all my fellow Indian fans are pulling for you to get better, Asdrubal!
