just like old times

Last night was the first game of the ALDS playoffs, and the Indians crushed the Yankees, 12-3. So much for the Indians losing all 6 games to the Yankees during the regular season. I won’t have to hear that stat again until the Indians win the series and the national media focuses on another Yankees meltdown, instead of their opponent’s success.
I will be honest and admit that when the Indians traded to bring Kenny Lofton back a few months ago, I was less than impressed. I thought it was more of an attempt by management to bring back nostalgia instead of trying to ready a team for a playoff run. Lofton proved me wrong last night, leading the offense and knocking in four runs. I’m glad I was wrong about that move. I guess that’s why I don’t get the big bucks to make those decisions.
I’m taking a half day off of work today to head down to the game this afternoon. I have not-so-great seats, but it’s just so much fun to be down there. Plus I don’t have cable TV, so I can actually see the action today instead of staring at the radio like I did last night. I just hope their bats still have some spark in them like they did last night.
