    ALDS - Cleveland vs Boston

    Game 1, Cleveland lighting up Porcello in the Bottom of the 3rd with 3 solo HRs to take a 4-2 lead.

    If this is a sign of things to come, it could be a crazy series.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Why did they bring Miller in for the end of the 5th?
    Mariano Rivera was so great he was able to close a Denny's.

    Miller pitching in the 5th? I don't follow the Indians, but when he got traded to them I thought he would be their closer.

    Put your best reliever where he's most needed?

    It worked out. I was surprised to see him so early too, but Miller is a team guy. You don't have to worry about hurting his feelings if he is doing what is best for the team.

    Maybe they watched the AL Wild Card game?

    Solo HR, still lead by one. Fly out. Strike out. Nobody on. Bring in Miller. Nope, doesnt make sense. They better close this out...

    Pedroia owned it after the game. Said he was wrong and would apologize.

    If you think about it, had Showalter been the Indians' manager, they'd likely be down 1-0 in the series.

    The Indians would have lost had Girardi been their manager. Tito's use of Andrew Miller for two innings to stop the Sox momentum won that game.

    Francona apparently understands the concept that the first high leverage situation is not necessarily any different than the last, simply because it may indeed be the last.

    Miller is awesome. He checks his ego at the door and doesn't care when you put him into the game. Some other top relievers are so accustomed to being in a specific role that they would be upset to be used somewhere else. Tito is smart enough to utilize his versatility to the Indians best advantage.

    Pedroia's meltdown was epic. It wasn't even a close call.

    I was saddened most by Miller's departure from the Yankees. I understood why they did it, but I really liked his attitude. I'm a fan.
    And a fan of Lindor. This kid is something special. I love the way he handles himself.
    And Francona. OMG. When he managed the Sox, it was difficult for me to express full hatred for that team. (now - I don't have a problem)
    I'm pulling for Cleveland because of these three men! - OH and that they're playing the Red Sox.

    Indians - please sweep and hold Ortiz to the one hit he had yesterday. I really dislike that gigantic hypocrite. And I hate the way he's being immortalized by the media. I mean - WTF is with Big Bats? They didn't do that for anyone that didn't cheat.... Did they?

    David Price coming through in a big game.

    4-0 Cleveland in the 2nd after a 3-run HR by Chisenall. Cleveland still batting with 1 out.

    I am thrilled. I have never bought into the hype around him. He's good overall, but for the most part a disappointment when all the cards are on the table.

    Compare him to that guy in SF. (Refuse to say his name because, while I respect his ability, I don't really care for the guy)
