"No one gives us the finger! We're Yankees!"

You already know the Indians beat the Rockies today. But in the spirit of the late, great Paul Harvey, allow me to tell you "the rest of the story."

 

EXCRUCIATING MINUTIA OF THE DAY...

 

  • Adam Miller will continue to get treatment on his right middle finger for the next couple days before the Indians decide whether or not he's ready to start throwing again. He and the Indians both maintain this is not a serious problem and they're just being cautious.
  • I don't think a middle finger has caused this much trouble since George Costanza rode in a car with Danny Tartabull.
  • Kerry Wood appears to have bounced back nicely from his back soreness. He threw a second 40-pitch bullpen today and will throw live BP on Wednesday. They're targeting early next week for Wood's Cactus debut.
  • Anthony Reyes makes his spring debut Tuesday against the Royals in Surprise. He's had no elbow issues in camp thus far.
  • Cliff Lee will throw a simulated session Tuesday and will probably make his Cactus debut on Friday against the Brewers.
  • Pitching coach Carl Willis said before today's game that we'll see all five candidates for the last rotation spot at least two more times (and keep in mind Zach Jackson and Jeremy Sowers both threw in the game that followed). As the Indians increase the innings doled out to their starters, the competition will get pared down.
  • Stephen Head crashed hard into the wall while trying to catch a foul ball in the first inning of today's game, dropping him to the ground. He was looked over by head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff for a few minutes and remained in the game. He cranked out a two-run single in the bottom of the inning.
  • Gotta love Big Sal going deep in the sixth. Well, unless you're Rich Rundles, who served up the two-run jack to The Mustachioed One.
  • A new Inbox is up and running on the site.

AC, seriously, what gives with STO and spring training? Why aren’t more games on tv? This is a real neat opportunity to see some of those kids who are the future of the program. Instead, we get Heartland Poker. Awesome.

I hope Stephen Head is okay.

Ya, I hope STO puts some Minor League Games on Tv when the Indians aren’t playing. I read on the STO website and Underwood’s blog that he (Matt) is back in Cleveland. So that is probably why they aren’t showing that many games right now, But the Radio crew is still out their.

AC, Grab a mike and start doing some Play by play, I am sure you could do it.
