Who Is Scott Lewis And Where Do We Get More Guys Like Him?

Congratulations to Scott Lewis! Scott was brought up a little over one week ago to join the injury-depleted starting pitching of the Cleveland Indians. How did he react?
In two games he has pitched 14 scoreless innings. Lewis has yet to allow a run in 14 Major League innings. That's the longest such stretch by a Tribe pitcher to start a career since 1969 -- as far back as Elias Sports Bureau's records go.
In those 14 innings, Lewis has allowed 0 runs, 6 hits, 2 walks, and 8 strike-outs! Not only is he pitching great, he has tremendous poise and professionalism.
Best of luck to Scott Lewis and may you have a long, successful, and prosperous career with the Cleveland Indians!

What about Ned Yost?!
I guess ownership in Milwaukee has long memories! With a record of 83 – 67, the Brewers dumped manager Ned Yost!
The Brewers dropped their 5.5 Wild Card lead to find themselves in a tie with the Phillies after the weekend. Obviously, Brewers’ ownership will not tolerate another team slip and slide from the playoffs this year, at least from Yost!
Good luck Dale Sveum!
Funny, the Cleveland Indians miss the 2007 World Series by 1 game, fail miserably in 2008, and yet stick with their manager, Eric Wedge.
Yeah, yeah, yeah,...
Injuries, injuries, injuries…
OK, obviously Wedge will be around at least until the start of 2009, he had better win…

Only in Cleveland!

  • Where else would the public transportation (RTA) raise fares by $.25 and cut service by 3%?
  • Where else could a hurricane that devastated Galveston, Texas and pull our linemen down to help with a rescue effort, come blowing into our town and cause such damage, leaving 336,000 homes without power and a huge cleanup effort? Isn’t it a bit ironic that 336,000 northeast Ohioans were without power Sunday night but Cleveland Browns’ Stadium was big and bright on national television?...Hmmm! (Of course, this is what I heard since I was one of the 336,000!)
  • Power came back on in my area late last night. That means lights, water, showers, flushing toilets, sump pumps, refrigerator, stove/oven, septic system, garage opener, no shaving in the dark, and I can see the Tribe on TV tonight!

I have family down in Cincy and they did the same thing... sent all of the linemen down to Texas.
