Too Much Baseball. Too Many Hot Dogs.

Ok so here's the deal. I went to a Memorial Day party and it didn't go too long, so I had time to come home and listen to the game. The game had a lot of baseball going on - just like yesterday's game. Twenty-seven hits, 19 runs. Stolen bases, errors, hit-by-pitch, outfield assists and even deeper in to our b-squad.

But it's late and I just don't feel good and I have to be up and at 'em tomorrow so you're just going to get a short rundown of highlights from me.

The good news is 1) Tom Hamilton is back and 2) We don't see the White Sox again until September. The mixed news is that Kent State won the MAC championship and will be going to the NCAA baseball regionals ...but that means Tom Hamilton will probably miss some more games. But hey, as a KSU alum and a huge fan of Hammy's, I say go Flashes!

On to today's game:

Ubaldo. Ugh. He was acting hurt or sick or something, according to Rosenhaus. Hamilton didn't think it could be the 96 degree weather because "He is from the Dominican."

Asencio and Sipp DOUBLE UGH.

Choo was the only guy who didn't get a hit. Weird.

Brantley, 2 hits :) :) Two more for 2 RBI :) :)

Kipnis still on a tear in Chi Town. He went 6 for 12 on the weekend with 2 HR and 4 RBI. Two of those hits today.

LOPEZ! Back at 3rd. Where is Supermanahan? 1 for 5 with RBI and double, not bad Lopez!

Kotchman 1 for 3, 2 HBP. Rudi Steined his way on base.

Shelley Duncan being weird in the outfield. Damon possibly rubbing off or vice-versa. Duncan making weird plays, Damon got a home run. Halp.

Juan Diaz is fucking your shit up today! He went 2 for 3 and also got HBP and scored 2 runs! Welcome to the bigs! Bring Asdrubal (hamstring) back soon!

Lou Marson, 1 for 1. Officially on a "tear" when it comes to 2012 Lou Marson. Hit in face with ball. Welcome, Luke Carlin! Old man from minors! Went 1 for 2, his average is triple what Lou's is.

I cannot WAIT to play those Royals tomorrow, with Tomlin at home. There'd better be a ton of crazy fans there! We'd better score a ton of runs! Heck if we can score 16 this weekend with, according to Rosie, "67 of the RBIs missing from the lineup" then we can beat the Royals with our hands tied behind our backs. And they are. Choo, Brantley, Kipnis, [Players to be named later]

A 4:05 game for Memorial Day. See you there!

Radio Chatter:
"Lou Marson is looking in to the dugout as if to say 'I don't know, but it doesn't look good from here either.'"
- Tom Hamilton on Jiminez's first inning

"Well if he didn't get hit by the pitch, we have a thespian and a pretty good one."
- Tom Hamilton on Diaz's convincing "hit by pitch"

"That was a fastball at 88 miles per hour. I think it was a fastball, it looked like it."
- Tom Hamilton on Jiminez's fastball

"You got a non-roster catcher, a minor league shortstop and a guy hitting cleanup that you released."
- Tom Hamilton on the state of the Cleveland lineup

"This is a weekend the Indians would like to forget."
- Jim Rosenhaus

"Tell you how tough a day it is here. Our engineer Nick sabotaged our cooler here and I got a can of Diet Pepsi and it exploded."
- Tom Hamilton jokes with Nick, the Chicagoan (Cubs fan)

"It's as if the White Sox know what pitch is coming."
- Tom Hamilton

"Jiminez's earned run average on the road is 9. At home, just over 3. That's Jeckyl-and-Hyde numbers."
- Tom Hamilton

"If you had told Manny Acta before this weekend 'Manny, the Indians are going to score 16 runs this weekend,' Acta would have said 'You know, that gives us a good chance to win this series.'"
- Tom Hamilton
