Game 20: Indians 9, Angels 2

 

Tonight's Game Recap is brought to you by the folks at ESPN's Baseball Tonight. 

 

Karl Ravech

The Indians were in Anaheim again tonight after getting blown out yesterday. They went to a young guy who's been their stopper this year-Mitch Talbott. Kruky, what do you think of this kid out of the Tampa Bay system? 

John Kruk

Good kid, good pitcher, throws the ball-I like that. But, you know what? I bet they'd rather have Lebron on the mound. Can you imagine that? That big dude staring down at you? 

Eduardo Perez

Oh-ha-ha! Now that would be scary! 

Aaron Boone

Yes! Lebron can do it all! 

Curt Schilling

Hey now-pitching isn't easy, you know! 

Fernando Viña

Here it comes! Can you believe it EY?

Eric Young

(In seat formerly occupied by Eduardo Perez)

I can believe it! Pitchers, man! Always sticking together!

Tim Kurkjian 

Talbot has thrown 72% of first pitch sliders for strikes this year. Pretty incredible, stuff, actually. 

Dave Winfield

(In seat formerly occupied by Eric Young and previously occupied by Eduardo Perez)

Man, could a slider ever tie me up! 

[Highlight of Mitch Talbot retiring 6 straight]

Karl Ravech

Booney, what's the toughest slider you ever faced? 

Aaron Boone

Man, that's like picking my least favorite food! Tons of 'em make me sick, you know? 

Karl Ravech

C'mon man, toughest one! 

[Highlight of Shin-Soo Choo RBI single]

Orestes Destrade

(In seat formerly occupied by Eric Young and previously occupied by Eduardo Perez, which is now in the space that Aaron Boone and his seat used to occupy)

Man, it's hard to say but I can tell you this-it was either a Yankee or a Red Sox pitcher. Those guys-man, they can dominate! 

[Highlight of Lou Marson single]

Karl Ravech

We see Lou Marson here, a young guy struggling with a rare single-

Orestes Destrade

Hey, now, man! You gotta let me finish! 

Tim Kurkjian

Let the big man finish!

Karl Ravech

Alright, OD-what you got? 

Orestes Destrade

Yankees, man! Gotta be the Yanks!

Karl Ravech

So you're finished?

Eric Young

(Returning to what was his chair after it was Eduardo Perez's chair)

Oh he is finished! Ha ha ha!

John Kruk

Done! Over! Ho ha ha!

Back back back back! Ha! 

Karl Ravech

We're going to Buster and Gammo-guys, what's your take on this young Indians' team? 

[Olney and Gammons in split-screen, live via satellite from New York and Boston, respectively]

Buster Olney

I think Marson is a piece the Yankees don't really want. They've got a great young hitter at catcher, Jesus Montero. There's a lot of talk that he'll move off but I'm not convinced. 

Peter Gammons

Marson would be a great fit in Boston-hardworking, smart kid. Would be great to get him soon so he can receive tutelage from both Martinez and Varitek. That would be huge for the young guy's confidence. 

Karl Ravech

Thanks, guys. So, the Indians managed to eke this one out tonight but long term, what's going on with this team?

Eduardo Perez

(In seat that Fernando Viña previously sat in, which is now sitting on top of table)

Young, man. This is such a young, young team-Sizemore is so young, Cabrera, super young. Austin Kearns, still a young guy.They need some veteran leadership. 

Karl Ravech

The key has always been Hafner, right? Will Pronk return? Kruky, what's your take? 

[Highlight of Austin Kearns triple]

John Kruk

I think I could eat Hafner. It would take a few hours but I bet I could do it. 

Eric Young

(From offscreen, where he is sitting in chair marked "J.P. Riccardi" that Dari Nowkah sat in while he had lunch) 

Oh yeah! 

Chris Singleton

(On Karl Ravech's shoulders)

Kruk! Kruk! Kruk! 

Ed McMahon

Indeed, sir! Ha! Ha! Ha! 

Aaron Boone

(Suspended from ceiling in Mr. Potter's wheelchair)

I wouldn't bet against it! You guys know Kruk! Ho-ha-ha

Curt Schilling

(In sleeping bag on floor, playing MMORPG)

[Silently Clicks]

Orestes Destrade

(Standing in baby pool)

He-ho-ha-ha! If you could eat a man that big, you could probably play for the Yankees or Red Sox! Am I right Dave and Curt? 

Karl Ravech

Now that's a question I want answered! Who's better, Yankees or Red Sox? We'll examine, after the break!
