Sniff...Sniff...Is That Blood I Smell?

It is Wednesday night and all is well in Cleveland, Ohio. The Indians have put themselves in an enviable position ahead of the Boston Red Sox, three games to one in the ALCS. Our ace, C.C. Sabathia is ready to go against their ace, Josh Beckett in game #5 in Cleveland tomorrow night.

In the not so distant past, this town would be looking for the cloud over Jacobs Field.
Take solace in the fact that, with a maximum of three games remaining in this playoff series, the Indians only have to win one game to advance to the 2007 World Series.
That means they only have to play .333 over the next 3 games.
Odds heavily favor the Indians chances to advance.

Wait a minute!

This team didn't get where they are with that type of thinking or game plan. On the contrary, they have played every game as if there was no tomorrow...Hitting with 2 outs, walk off hits (and walks), come from behind all adds up to a team that never quits.

With that said, whadda ya say we clinch our 2007 World Series berth right here in Cleveland tomorrow night?! Save the plane fare and have a big ole par-tay!

Not that I think they need any help but here are just a few Cliches to help finish the job:
  • Go for the jugular
  • Use your killer instinct
  • Cut and run
  • Deliver the knockout punch
  • Smell blood in the water
  • Seal the victory
  • Answer the call
  • Control your own destiny
  • They are in the driver's seat
  • Playing for all of the marbles

Whew! That is quite an assembly of over-used terms that may help to get this thing done tomorrow Cleveland!

How are the Red Sox feeling? Let's ask Manny Ramirez!

In an interview this afternoon, Manny was asked to comment on if the Bosox were in a panic mode. Here is what Manny had to say:

"Why panic?" Ramirez said. "If we don't do it, we'll come back next year and try again. If it doesn't happen, who cares? There's always next year. It's not the end of the world."

Well, if that's not blood in the water...!
Thanks, Manny!
It's Tribe Time Now!
Come on Tribe, gotta make it happen...tomorrow night!
The Cleveland Indians will win game #5 of the 2007 ALCS...
Believe It!
