The Little $61 Million Engine That Could

Tribe 12, Yankees 3

“I think I can, I think I can” becomes “I know I can. I know I can!”

Nothing sweeter than spanking the $210 million Yankees – a team that has spent $1 billion since they last won the fall classic … A night to remember at the Jake … Pulled my ’99 Lofton jersey out of the retirement closet … Clutch-hitting KLove grabs 4 RBIs … Down goes Wang … We’re handing out high fives and partying with our entire section … Yankee fans were mocked and then mocked some more … Jeter nearly falls down swinging at a 96 MPH Sabathia fast ball … Lebron takes off his enemy hat … Pronk goes yard … Victor goes yard … The kid A.C. goes yard … My boy Gark goes yard … Shapiro is a genius.

Soak it up Cleveland. This is your baseball team, the little $61 million engine that could.

I get so sick of ESPN reporting as if there are only 2 teams in the league (NYY & BOS). At least for today, ESPN gets it right ……….

    Adversity brings out things in a team that no amount of practice can. I love the way the calm Eric Wedge is handling this set of young players. Last night I was hard pressed to come up with 5 members of this team that had been through a post season run. All hail the tribe.
