The Indians lost tonight to the Royals. The Indians are now 1-4 against the Royals.

The Indians play the Royals in a four game series next week. And while the Sox play the Cubs the Indians play the Pirates.

any other season i would be complaining that this isn't fair- the cubs are such a better team than the pirates... this year, however, it's nice to just sit back and know that'll we'll trounce those suckas on the north side.

Don't the Royals have a winning record against the Jndjans this season? Is the Cubune going to give the same Cleveland Steamer (it is appropriate) treatment to Wedge's boys like they did with the Sox?


Doubt it.

Doubt it.I'll have to board up my house in case of flying pigs when that happens.

As I noted in the initial post...

The Indians are now 1-4 against the Royals.

The reverse of that is, the Royals are now 4-1 against the Indians.

I don't mean this to be a dark-cloud post, but ... The Cubs may be dead on their current road trip, but there will be a greater inspiration for them to play with intensity against the Sox, especially after that parade last October. Maybe they can't bring a World Series to Chicago, but the fact that people on the team believe it's necessary for THEM to do so makes them more dangerous against the Sox than the Angels have been.

Last weekend fans were whining about the Sox struggling at home against Kansas City.

Oh no! We wouldn't want Juan Pierre to get inspired to match his .320 OBP of last year! We wouldn't want to inspire Jacques Jones to three hop it to second from shallow right! We wouldn't want to inspire Dusty to install Todd Walker at first base. We wouldn't want an inspired John Mabry to have a sweet game at DH! We wouldn't want to inspire whatever aa pitcher is in the rotation to go four innings against us! We wouldn't want to inspire Scott Eyre and Bob Howry to be the mediocre pitchers Hendry thought they could be when he signed them.. We wouldn't want...

Oh Lord, I'm tired.

I'm beginning to think Detroit is the divisional foe to look out for.

Say what you like about the Royals, but against their Divisional rivals in Chicago & Cleveland, they aren't a bad team, and IIRC they're hovering around the .500 against the Tigers & Twins.

I also am starting to think that it's the Murder City Kitties we should be worrying about, rather than the Jndians, but my suspicion to that effect is tempered by the knowledge that we aren't even 1/4 way in to the Season.

The Royals are a better team than most people give them credit for. They have solid journeymen players at several positions and up and coming kids elsewhere. They've been drafting so high for so long one can't help but pick up some good players.

It's early folks. Consider the baseball season is like a golf tournament. Four rounds. We're right now finishing the first round in the lead. A couple of double-bogeys and we're in a fight again.

Sox 97-102 wins
Clevel 92-95 wins
Det 85-90 wins

Could've had Derrek Lee (No. 14)

Matt Smith, 1B/LHP (No. 16, 1994) Never reached majors
Could've had Scott Elarton (No. 25)

Juan LeBron, OF (No. 19, 1995) Never reached majors
Could've had Michael Barrett (No. 28)

Dermal Brown, OF (No. 14, 1996) .234, 14 HRs
Could've had Eric Milton (No. 20)

Dan Reichert, RHP (No. 7), 1997 21-25, 5.55
Could've had Lance Berkman (No. 16)

Jeff Austin, RHP (No. 4, 1998) 2-3, 6.75
Could've had Brad Lidge (No. 17)

Kyle Snyder, RHP (No. 7, 1999 2-9, 5.64
Could've had Barry Zito (No. 9)

Mike Stodolka, LHP (No. 4, 2000) Never reached majors
Could've had Chase Utley (No. 15)

Colt Griffin, RHP (No. 9, 2001) Never reached majors
Could've had Bobby Crosby (No. 25)

Hilarity. The "best (simulated) team in baseball" just lost AGAIN to the hapless Royals, including coming back on a game-tying balk only to give up HRs to the 6 & 8 hitters in the bottom of the 8th and then have their vaunted 3-4-5 hitters go down in order in the 9th.

Meanwhile, the Sox keep rolling along......

The Indians play the Royals in a four game series next week. And while the Sox play the Cubs the Indians play the Pirates.

And people thought Cleveland was going to be better this year than last. You cannot get better by subtracting pitching no matter how many great hitters you have on your team. They dropped the ball majorly this last offseason.

Don't get me wrong, I still think the Royals suck, but at the same time I'll give them credit--despite numerous injuries, no starting pitching, has beens at numerous positions, a horrendous bullpen, a horrible first month, and incompetent management--they're still playing hard against a very tough division. At least they're not making every excuse in the book for not winning (cough, cough "Unlovable Losers").

This is the one year when the Indians ,Tigers and Twins have to play the cubs like the sox and the fricking cubs are horrendous.

Oh well.

Also the sox do get the pirates in pittsburgh so that helps. The reds in cinncy could be tough but they may have come down to earth by then.

I notice that Houston is talking with the Rocket about coming back on June 17th- about a week before they come to SoxPark. I would expect the Rocket to try and extract some revenge for the humiliating bashing he took in the WS.

This is a tough year to be playing the NL central- cept the cubs and bucs. But with the cubs- throw out the record book. We usually split no matter how good or bad we are.
