Game Thread - Angels at Indians - Escobar v. Lee - 10:20 in the A frickin' M
I wanted to write a 1/3 of the season summary after the 54th game, but the turnaround between Friday Night and Saturday Morning counter-cartoon programming precludes this.
Suffice to say that the last few games have made the thought of 24-30 slightly more bearable. If we win 2 out of every 3 left that is 72-36, good for 96 wins and the division.
Doable? If Jered-56 is this good, Escobar pitches like he is paid, Bartolo returns to 2006 form, and Lackey and Santana pitch with a smidgen of self-respect, I'd say we still need a bat to get to that win plateau.
Intentionally Altered Movie Lines:
Annie Hall: So you wanna go into the movie or what?
Jeff Weaver: No, I can't go into a movie that's already started, because I'm anal.
Annie Hall: That's a polite word for what you are.
