I feel like the idea that there are now people too young to get Calvin & Hobbes references is a great threat to American society.

That’s like saying someone is too young to recognize the Mona Lisa or to have heard of Aristotle. There are some things that everyone should be exposed to, regardless of age.

I hate that last sentence, but whatever.

Introduce Calvin and Hobbes to as many people as you can... for the children.

In Tribe news, people are already getting Clevelanded in silly ways.

No, he was actually playing first base. Runners kept stepping on him.

Bad luck. Elsewhere, morale was not at an all-time high at the week's outset.

How do we feel about Ubaldo this week?

We put Tomlin’s brain in Ubaldo’s body. Let’s see if they notice.

Morale would take a surprising uptick with back-to-back games against Cy Young winners, who are the Tribe's bread and butter, apparently.

So we have 2 aces in Bauer and Jimenez and a decent number 2 in Masterson? That’s pretty good.

Old friend Cliff Lee came back to face new full-time intellectual/part-time pitcher Trevor Bauer...

I’ve gotta believe it will be the largest disparity of the number of books read between opposing starters in MLB history.

...and (in unrelated news) old friend Jason Kipnis HR picture also made a belated season debut.

WELL WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!

A quick recap of why we love Cleveland...

Columbus is the dividing point. A drive down I-71 South to Cincinnati is filled with billboards telling you why you are going to hell.

Guys, I talked to Ambien before the game and the keys to getting with me are to be a gentleman, but also a bad boy.

Hopefully they last all season, good person. For right here and right now, though, I'd say they're doing well.

Oh. I guess that's it from me then. I'll leave the sign-off line for my favorite LGT'er.
