A faint FAINT glimmer of hope revealed itself to me during today's game, in the form of 8 whole hits. There was even a point where we had the bases loaded, which was nice to see.

Of course, I was bashed about the brain with 8 whole strikeouts. I counter-attacked with three doubles and five stolen bases. En garde!

Our pitching was not too good but our fielding was worse. Hooray for pitching?

Asdrubal Cabrera got 3 hits this afternoon and still has a batting average over .300. If he's not your favorite baseball player yet, I don't know what your deal is.

Hey, Orlando Cabrera got his 2000th hit! That's so Eddie Murray of him, amirite? did not see fit to post a video or even a photo of it. It actually was a little bit suspect as a hit. Remember the other day's Radio Chatter when Rosie was talking about the official scorer wanting to be extra sure about Jeter's 3000th? But a hit it was and they kept the ball and everyone gave him hugs and stuff. So that was nice.

Time for him to have an extended vacation and watch Cord Phelps grow as a 2B perhaps?

I went to go look at tomorrow's matchup (Cool Carrasco vs. A.J. Burnett) and I found this site called on which there is a picture of A.J. Burnett's tattoos and associated mockery. I laughed. I also liked that the site's header is a picture of a beardy, because beardys are gross. Not all beardies are gross - gotta love our favorite beardies Chris Perez and Nice Brian W. Even Scott Cabrera keeps it tight. But, see what big bushy Galifianakis does to your face? Gross.

Ok, tomorrow at 7:05 PM. Will the glimmer of hope turn in to an eked-out win? That's all we ask for. According to some post-game interviews, Manny Acta has some stuff up his sleeve with regards to the lineup. So, we'll see.

Radio Chatter:
"If you're in the upper deck you are a long way from the action."
"And if you're in the lower seats you're either a multi-millionaire or you snuck in."
- Jim Rosenhaus and Tom Hamilton

"C.B. Bucknor is one of the nicest men, but the worst umpire."
- Tom Hamilton

"Jack Nicholson made that movie before he got courtside seats to the LA Lakers. But that movie helped him get those seats."
- Tom Hamilton explaining One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for the youngsters. The movie came up because apparently Yankee pitcher Freddie Garcia looks like the character Chief and carries that nickname.

"You can eat all the sushi you want but you still have to age. A lot of players are eating sushi like it's the fountain of youth. [...] I'm not saying sushi is bad, just give me some Lake Erie perch, fried up."
- Tom Hamilton

"The Indians have pretty much let everybody back in to the [penant] race."
- Tom Hamilton
