All of a sudden, my starters are dominant. Triston McKenzie throws 7.1 innings of shutout baseball and the bullpen barely breaks a sweat to finish it out, while my batters post a 5 spot in the 5th and don’t look back. It’s early, but Cleveland and KC are now tied for first in the AL… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland Vs Kansas City – 4/5/21
A 7 hit shutout performance from Zach Plesac, and the bullpen only made one mistake, giving up a solo shot home run. I finish this series on top and bring the team home for our home opener.
I came back to tie the game twice. One swing in the bottom of the 9th and it didn’t matter. Pitching in the early season isn’t looking too good.
OK, THIS TIME IS FOR REAL. I’ve finally got it all figured out where I can save my game to a location my iCloud account syncs. This means my season is on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro so I can play anywhere. Also, I can’t complain about the results, either. No, I didn’t… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland At Detroit – 4/1/21 TAKE 3

It was a spur of the moment decision to go, and I was fortunate to get a seat right on the center line of the performance floor, way up on the top row. On top of the incredible performances, I was… Continue reading 2015 WGI – The Proposal

I also should have backed up my game before making any changes. Learn from my mistakes, people. To make… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland At Detroit – 4/1/21 REPLAY
When your starting pitcher gives up 5 runs in 4 innings and your cleanup hitter strikes out with the bases loaded, you know you’re not going to win. Bright side – My relievers struck out 10. Cleveland falls to 0-2 in this very early season.
My first surprise was that I didn’t recognize half the players on the Cleveland roster. Since I haven’t been following actual baseball due to COVID, it looks like I may have to do some research on my team. My second surprise was that Shane Bieber only got 4 strikeouts, not to mention giving up a… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland At Detroit – 4/1/21
Now, time for a free donut…
When I was growing up, there were three radio voices which dominated my childhood years due to my love of Cleveland sports: Herb Score for baseball, Nev Chandler for football, and Joe Tait for basketball. We lost Chandler to cancer in 1994, while Score lived for over a decade after he retired from the radio… Continue reading Remembering Joe Tait
