I had a kind of fun post planned for tonight. I was going to talk about Eric Wedge’s return to Cleveland (I never got the chance back in May) and how despite all of the bad things going on with the Indians lately, I’m still glad he’s no longer the manager.
After that mess tonight, coupled with the mess of the weekend, I’m just not feeling it right now. I need a night off I think. I’m still taking my dog to the Puppypalooza thing at tomorrow night’s game, and I’ll go early enough for the pre-game, on-field dog parade. And then I’m going to hope she poops all over the field, because it would be inappropriate for me to do so. I feel like this would accurately display my emotions/feelings at this point in time.
Anyway, in case you missed it the Twins placed Jim Thome on waivers and there are rumors the Indians are interested. The Tribe also claimed Rich Harden off waivers from Oakland, but ultimately couldn’t work out a deal. Oakland ended up pulling him back off waivers, which means he won’t be traded during the remainder of the season. Did they really want Harden, or were they just trying to block someone else’s trade? Who knows? Who cares at this point?
Oh yes, and Chris Perez = awful. That man cannot pitch in a non-save situation.
