Bring on the Playoffs!


For the first time since 2001, I have October baseball to enjoy. The Cleveland Indians sealed the deal yesterday and clinched the AL Central crown. When the season started I gave the Tribe no chance to win the division. The Tigers, White Sox and Twins all looked to be better clubs. Who knew that Fausto Carmona and CC Sabathia were going to emerge as Cy Young candidates? Or that Cliff Lee would spend half the year in the minors? An infield that looked so young and unsettled in spring training was a work in progress all season with the final piece not added until August. The bullpen which looked horrible on paper became one of the best in baseball. This is a season to remember Indians fans. Its been 59 years since the Tribe last won the World Series...here's hoping this is the year the drought ends.

I'm finding it hard to celebrate anything since I discovered that Harem Scarem dropped out of the Melodicrock Fest.

Then perhaps the video I just posted will ease your pain my friend.
