Kevin Youkilis: Nobody believes in us

This is just strange from all directions. First, it’s the Yankees. Regardless of who is on the DL, they are still way ahead of everyone in terms of payroll. Two, it’s Kevin Youkilis as their new mouthpiece in the dugout, a former member of the hated Red Sox. Anyway, last week, the Yankees were being left for dead and on their way to a 1-161 record after a terrible start to their...

Second Thoughts Game #8: Yankees 14, Indians 1

Not Exactly How I Planned To Start The Season At 6:30 when I was on my way to Progressive Field for my first live Indians game of the season, I couldn’t be more excited. By 9:30 that night, however, when the Yankees were beating my beloved Tribe 14-1 and “Let’s go Yankees!” chants from the New York fans in attendance was nauseatingly audible above the normal chatter of the...

Yankees 14, Indians 1: One week in and the rotation is a big problem

I am not one to panic. Especially with 150-plus games left on the schedule. The hot starts for the Tribe the last two years resulted in nothing. But obviously you would like to see the lesser parts of your team do well early to give them confidence as the season starts to build. It was no secret that the weak link of the 2013 Cleveland Indians would be their starting rotation. All...

The season isn't over at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

I can’t help but shake my head while sitting here during the opening home series here at Progressive Field. The Cleveland Indians are 3-5 and two games out of first on April 10th, and to listen to the general populace that surround the Indians, you would think that the season ended yesterday after another 100-loss season. Sure, things could be better. The pitching staff looks like...
