Last night was awesome. Nothing really beats a walk off grand slam. Hopefully it’s enough to jump start Carlos Santana. He’s been struggling for the better part of a month. He’s shown flashes here and there that he’s ready to break out of his slump, but last night was an effing explosion. Hear’s to hoping that this is the start of a hot streak for Santana. The Indians could really use his bat.
The other worry for the Indians uas to be the ankle of Travis Hafner. He’s missed the past two games. The Indians have faired well without him though. Shelley Duncan has done a great job filling in for him. Last I heard Hafner was supposed to be back in the lineup for today’s game.
The last important note for tonight’s game is that it marks the first major league start for Indians prospect Alex White. A lot is expected out of White since he’s one of the top rated pitching prospects in the organization. I expect that to ight is going to go one of two ways. Either White pitches amazing and makes his case to stay on the big league roster and gives us a flash of the future, or he’ll be terrible. I’m pulling for the first one, but we’ll see. Should be interesting.
Normally I’d post the lineups for tonight’s game, but I’m in a car right now and typing this on my phone. Its also way too early and the lineups haven’t been released yet, so you’re all on your own for them tonight.
Let’s go Tribe!
