You Gotta Have Heart!

You've gotta have....Heart!
All you really need is heart!
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win,
that's when the grin should start!
You've gotta have hope!
Musn't sit around and mope.
Nuthin' half as bad as it may appear,
wait'll next year and hope.
When your luck is battin' zero,
get your chin up off the floor.
Mister, you can be a hero.
You can open any door.
There's nothin' to it, but to do it.
You've gotta have heart!
Miles and miles and miles of heart!
Oh, it's fine to be a genius of course!
But keep that ol' horse before the cart!
First you've got to have heart!

The Cleveland Indians are many things; underdogs, in a small market, long overdue...
and they lack just a couple of things; speed on the bases, a high team batting average...
but look at what they got:
C.C. Sabathia
Fausto Carmona
Victor Martinez
Grady Sizemore
Rafey Right and Rafey Left
Travis Hafner
Ryan Garko
Asdrubal Cabrera
Casey Blake
Kenny Lofton
Jhonny Peralta
Franklin Gutierrez
Pauly Byrd
Jake Westbrook
Joe Borowski
Aaron Laffey
Jensen Lewis
"Pie Man" Trot Nixon
23 Wins In Their Last At Bat!
49 Saves!
Tons Of Come From Behind Victories!
A Never Quit Attitude!
And One More Thing...
If they are anything, they are lovable.
Their noses are cold.
They play the game with mouths hanging open, with energy, and with sandlot enthusiasm.
How can this group be denied their inevitable destiny?
It's not gonna happen...denial of their destiny, that is.
They have been ready for this since their home opener got snowed out.
They honed their skills winning 96 regular season games.
They became most dangerous when they were down.
This team is solid, one through nine with excellent pitching.
We don't need Joe Hardy to sell his soul to beat the Yankees.
The Yankees are beat before they get to town.

Indians fans, be ready...your team is on the verge of greatness!

Tribe over three!!!
