Less than 700 comments in the game thread last night. Only a smattering of comments this morning. And no apparent excitement for tonight's game. I feel like Ben Stein:
There is a team from Cleveland in the playoffs. We were all excited about the team throughout the season. The team is... Anyone? Anyone? The Indians. The team is playing against the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS, with the winner going to the... Anyone? Anyone? The World Series. Anyone know the last time the Indians won the World Series? Anyone? 1948.
I'm hopeful the team will wake up tonight, but wonder if Wedge will do something to shake things up. I'm not talking about a major shift in the lineup or other changes. Maybe just a note on the bulletin board or a little rant in the locker room. You don't want the Red Sox to get on a roll. They limped into the playoffs and it would be nice to get some of the doubt they were feeling in September back into their minds.
