Indians/White Sox Reschedule Game for Yom Kippur

14

The Indians and White Sox have agreed to reschedule the 9/25 game in Chicago to 1:15 p.m. to observe the Jewish high holy day. If the game had not been rescheduled, Kevin Youkilis would have sat out the game (and Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf would have been unable to attend).

2013 Schedule Released

23

I'm not usually one to look at schedules a year ahead of time, but the all-year interleague interests me. I can't believe they didn't have the Astros as the AL team playing the NL to open and close the season. Other things of note: We open in Toronto, and at home against the Yankees. September 2013 is well set-up for success, if only we could be a contender: Orioles, Mets, Royals, White Sox, Royals, Astros, White Sox, Twins.

Brandon McCarthy Underwent Brain Surgery Last Night

22

McCarthy was hit by a line drive in yesterday's game, and after a period of observation, underwent the surgery to "evacuate a epidural hemorrhage" and "stabilize the skull fracture," but apparently he's progressed well today, which is very good news. Scary stuff.

Chris Perez decides to stir up some more sh#t

90

One big difficulty for Indians general manager Chris Antonetti: His payroll this year is roughly $50 million lower than that of the division rival Tigers. "Different owners," Perez said frankly, in reference to Detroit’s Mike Ilitch and Cleveland’s Lawrence J. Dolan. "It comes down to that. They (the Tigers) are spending money. He (Ilitch) wants to win. Even when the economy was down (in Detroit), he spent money. He’s got a team to show for it. You get what you pay for in baseball. Sometimes you don’t. But most of the time you do." "You can’t miss," Perez said. "You have to be right. That’s why I say it’s not just ownership. They don’t make the trades. It’s the GMs. It goes hand in hand. The GMs can only spend the money the owners give them, but they pick who they spend it on or who they don’t. They pick. The owners don’t pick. "Josh Willingham would look great in this lineup. They didn’t want to (pony) up for that last year. … That’s the decision they make, and this is the bed we’re laying in."

Indians Extend Working Agreement With Columbus Clippers

4

The Columbus Clippers will be the Cleveland Indians' AAA affiliate through 2016. This match has been great for both clubs. The Indians' AAA players play in one of the top facilities in all of the minor leagues. The response to the new ballpark and the affiliation with Cleveland has been record AAA attendance. The team has won the last two AAA National Championships. This is pretty much a no-brainer for both organizations, but it's still good to have it done.
