Casey Slams The Blog

Well Well Well. After weeks of weak pop outs, lifted-up arms on called third strikes, and lost balls in the lights, the Tribe corner players wake up and aide in smoking the Royals 15-1 at Kauffman Stadium. The man known as "Fake" Casey Blake with a perfect night at the plate going 4 for 4 with 6 RBI and a Grand Slam in a 5 run 4th inning. Good swings by the Wahoo third sacker and buddy of Eric Wedge and just in time. It was a sweet night and a lot of fun, almost like a party.. or even Jason Kaplan's bachelor party in Amsterdam.

Heck, even Dave Dellucci turned on a couple of balls and smacked a solo slice off of Gil Meche, who looked as dazed and confused on the mound as Sal Governale at a Passover seder. Franky Gutierrez also really looked cozy at the plate and hit some ropes, en route to a 3 for 5 night with 3 steaks. Plenty of support for "The Ace" CC Sabathia who throws 6 scoreless innings with 11 punchouts.

It was the CC of old and Blake agrees saying "It seemed like C.C. set the tone out there. He was C.C. tonight. And we just had a lot of guys swing the bat really well." Hopefully the boys in the red, white, and blue can keep this going with Fausto Carmona on the hill tonight.

The Tribe is not a panic team, it is still early and give Wedge credit for shutting the mouths of the pregame doubters (us) and sticking with his lineup. OH... did I say PANIC? How about the motor city kitties! The Tigers cruise over Texas last night, yet announce after the game that the slow-pitch softball team continues to tour as Miguel Cabrera moves to first base and Carlos Guillen to third on a permanent basis. Epic. Why not just let the guys run to their positions on the field every inning on a first-come first-serve basis? Glad Guillen is signed through 2011. What is this the 1996 Red Sox? Jose Canseco, Mo Vaughn, Reggie Jefferson, and Wil Cordero where are you? Maybe you can join the Tigers of 2008.
