That was a fun game for the Indians. Klubot's programming was a little off at the beginning, but he settled down and set down 10 straight at one point. Andrew Miller continues to be nasty af. Welcome to the Indians, Edwin. Welcome to the bigs, Yandy. This is going to be a fun year. B)

I haven't paid super close attention to baseball the past few years, and I checked the Red Sox box score for today's game and its amazing how little I recognize any of the players. Pedroia is basically the only name that looks 'right' to me. 

I know Hanley Rameriz and Pablo Sandoval too of course, but I don't think of them as Red Sox players. Bogaerts, Bradley, and Betts are just the names of prospects that I ignore in potential trade discussions. And the other names mean nothing to me; except Porcello, but that's only because of the Cy Young.

Its amazing how much having David Ortiz still on the team covered up how little I knew about the roster anymore. 

There was some amazing factoid I saw the other day, that Pedroia is the only guy left that was on the roster on the day of the Marathon bombing. That's a little misleading, since Jackie Bradley Jr. had been called up and sent back down before that, and Bogaerts came up later in the year, but still.

Fucking Smoak. It can't be a good thing when your 1b hits 8th, right? And when I say 'hits' I mean 'swings'.

Rain outs this week have the Cubs altering their rotation a little meaning, if things stay the course now, Lester and Lackey pitch the first two in Boston she. The Cubs go there.  Makes for an interesting subplot.

Myshkin, manhole...what will either of you do if/when the other checks out? It's like that story Brannagh relates at the end of Conspiracy...if you build your whole life around hating another person, when that person is gone you have nothing left to live for. Or like a lot of alcohol. Maybe chocolate?

Too late for that, I'm afraid.

That's pretty fucking schweet, but I doubt my daughter would've appreciated it much.

She is roughly a year and a half old, and, I am told, has already beaten three different people about the head with a baseball bat.

Oh, come on. All parents exaggerate about their kid's accomplishments. Many's no different, I'm sure.

 She's actually 20, and she's smart enough to know to go for the knees. Daddy didn't raise no dummies.
